Reactivated Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada-based technical death metal band GORGUTS is currently working on a new album for a tentative early 2011 release.
Guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay previously told BLABBERMOUTH.NET about the group's new material, "I couldn't be happier with the result of this collaboration along with three of the most talented musicians in the metal scene. John, Colin [Marston, bass; DYSRHYTHMIA, BEHOLD... THE ARCTOPUS, BYLA, KRALLICE, INDRICOTHERE] and Kevin [Hufnagel, guitar; DYSRHYTHMIA, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, BYLA, EUCLID STREET, THE FIFTH SEASON, GREY DIVISION BLUE] have been fantastic and amazingly creative with their instruments for the new compositions.
"Don't expect this record to sound like a previous GORGUTS album."
A "demo montage" of some of the new GORGUTS material is available for streaming using the audio player below.
GORGUTS' current lineup is as follows:
* Luc Lemay (NEGATIVA) - Vocals, Guitar
* Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRHYTHMIA, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, BYLA, EUCLID STREET, THE FIFTH SEASON, GREY DIVISION BLUE) - Guitar
* Colin Marston (DYSRHYTHMIA, BEHOLD... THE ARCTOPUS, BYLA, KRALLICE, INDRICOTHERE) - Bass
* John Longstreth (DIM MAK, ORIGIN, THE RED CHORD, SKINLESS, POSSESSION, ANGELCORPSE) - Drums
Back in November 2006, Metal Mind Productions reissued the classic GORGUTS albums "Considered Dead" and "Erosion of Sanity". Both CDs came in new digipack editions on golden discs, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology, and were limited to a hand-numbered 2,000 copies. Each title included two demo tracks as a bonus.
GORGUTS' last studio album, "From Wisdom to Hate", was released in 2001.
