"French technical death metal virtuosi GOROD have inked a deal with LISTENABLE RECORDS! Their new album 'Process of a new decline' sets a landmark in the bands career and will turn many heads in the metal community, rest assured!
"With this new record, Gorod have cleverly spiced their diamond-cutting technicality with supercharged pinball machine melodies and fluttering sting ray guitar solos against a backdrop of grooves and bonkers bass playing, not to mention tighter, radioactive songwriting sure to burrow its way into permanent memory. Considering how slippery and complicated Gorod sounds on paper, it's immediately refreshing to be reminded that death metal can be catchy, brainy, and fun all at the same time “Process Of A New Decline” is sure to be one of the best technical death metal albums you've heard in quite some time!
"Stay tuned for updates about GOROD shortly!"
Gorod are currently streaming online a new song "Disavow Your God" from their upcoming album "Process of a New Decline." The album, which features the band's new drummer Sam Santiago, is set for release sometime in the Spring via Willowtip Records.

GOROD has posted a video on their myspace page that previews a new song from the upcoming album. A music video for the song "Here Die Your Gods" is in production and should be released some time this summer.
The band hopes to tour extensively in support of the new release in 2009. If you are interested in helping to book/promote the tour, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. More...
