Gorguts Returns To Season Of Mist Roster, Working On New Album

Season of Mist has checked in with the following announcement about the return of Gorguts to the roster:

"After the return of Seth a couple weeks ago, Season of Mist wishes to express the joy of seeing one more band rejoin the fold: welcome back Gorguts! The staff is thrilled to have the Canadian technical death metal band back on the roster, 13 years after the release of cult classic ‘From Wisdom to Hate.'"

“It is with great joy that I announce the return of Gorguts to Season of Mist!” mastermind Luc Lemay comments. “Things have not always been easy these last couple of years, but now it’s all behind us and all I can say is that I’m more than eager to share this new record with all of you. Our forthcoming album will be a very detailed, dark, epic, emotional, conceptual record and Season of Mist was my first choice to be the standard-bearer for this new Gorguts opus and I must say that I am more than happy to work with them again.

“Stay tuned on the band’s websites for more updates and we’ll soon hit the stage to share this new music with you! I can never thank each of you enough, our dedicated fans, for more than 20 years of support! Thanks to you!!!!!!”

Gorguts’ upcoming fifth studio album will be released later this year on Season of Mist. Further details will be announced shortly.

Awesome! It's been an age since they said they were working on new material, I was beginning to fear it would slip through the cracks and not happen.

I hope this means a re-release of the Obscura album.

I’m really on the fence on this one.
Considered Dead will always be in my top death metal releases of all time but like a lot of people when I heard Obscura I sort of scratched my head.
Just last week I was thinking that maybe the album was just way ahead of its time and I just didn’t get it.
I went back and listened and….it’s not that I don’t get it…it’s the production.
They released a new song back in 2011 and sure enough it still sounds like they shoved their instruments in garbage cans and threw them down a flight of stairs.
Tech death has come a long way since Gorguts unfortunate absence but I really hope they find a sound that is a tad less abrasive.
Luc will always be one of the best death metal vocalist ever.

When I heard Obscura I scratched my head, felt dizzy, puked, woke up in a commune of sky worshippers and swam my way through rivers of blood back to reality. "Clouded" is simultaneously the most torturous and enlightening musical experience there is.

Agreed about Luc's vocals, absolutely sick.
