Latest Gorod News
Below is our complete Gorod news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
France's Gorod split with the band's drummer at the tail end of August, and now the band has recruited a replacement.
Although not yet ready to reveal the drummers name, Gorod has issued the following statement:
"This past Friday, we (the whole Gorod team) met our new drummer to plan things for 2014. Actually just a few gigs planned.... because we're now focusing on this: composition, pre-production, recording, and a new album!
"We also had a rehearsal with him...... ho dudes, this grooooove! Can't wait to introduce him to you soon with a nice video! Cheers!" More...
France's Antropofago (not to be confused with Antropofagus) has boasted guitar-crafting wizard Hugo Mermet (maker of custom guitars for Gorod, Insain and many more) in its ranks for most of the band's existence.
However, it has always been understood that a time might come where Mermet's business would hinder his ability to be a full-time contributor to Antropofago. That time came recently when the band was at work on upcoming full-length album, "Aera Dementiae."
Thus, a mutual decision was made to find a suitable replacement once the recording process was finished.
That replacement was quickly found in Gorod guitarist Nicolas Alberny. With Antropofago's fetish for musicianship and guitar technique, it was no surprise that a guitarist of Alberny's caliber would answer the band's call. Having already recorded some guest parts for the new album, Alberny knew what to expect once he joined the fold. More...
French act Gorod has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with the band's drummer:
"Hello to you all. These few words are to let you know that our drummer Samuel Santiago is no longer in Gorod. The reasons for this split up only concern Samuel and Gorod, no others statements will be made about this.
"The few gigs booked for the end of the year are confirmed and will be done with a temporary drummer, these gigs will be the the last concerning 'A Perfect Absolution.'
"In the following weeks GOROD will focus and start to compose for a new album and - we have a few ideas - we will search for a new drummer. More news soon." More...

Comments the band: “We couldn’t be any more stoked about this tour! An opportunity to shred with Gorod in the States is not something that happens too often. Plus, adding Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath to the lineup, as well as several other sick bands on select dates, makes this tour that much more crushing! We’ve been sharpening our blades to destroy every city we hit. The years of hard work and support from everyone that has helped us along the way really speaks volumes for the death metal culture that we’re lucky to have!” More...

"We are all excited to announce that we will be heading back over to Europe this spring to participate in the Bonecrusher Festival. After some long and hard contemplation (uhh huh huh huh), we decided it would be best to get back over to the lands of beer and honey to throw down with our friends in Beneath the Massacre and cruise around with some other cool bands and try and have a good time.
"It will be our first time headlining a proper tour overseas in just about 2 years, and we are ready to play some tunes, drink some brews and crush some snacks. Come get your bone crushed with a bunch of bearded dudes on high protein diets playing music way too fast!"
