Nice…and a first in tech death fusion.
Desole que vous soyez Francais…ca c’est crisse en tabarnac, mais c’est pas de vot faute.
P.S j’aime ben la snatch s’es drums…Nice feminin touch.
I am completely addicted to Gorod’s Leading Vision. I have had this album for weeks now and listen to it almost every day. This band is so talented it makes my head want to explode. To me their music is what you would get if you put Deathmetal , jazz, and classical music together. Awesome. A unique thing about this album is that they made up a story and wrote lyrics around it. I won’t even try to explain it cause it kind of long and a little confusing but cool none the less. Listen this album. Buy this album. You will start looking for more metal bands from France after hearing this album.
Going where are metal songs haven’t, you can always rely on Gorod to have unique riffs, patterns and styles that are fun, metal as F and tech with mad groove. Goooooood stuff. It’s tech metal but it’s always in Gorod style. Something new and fun to listen to with sick style
Wow! I don’t know where to start with this one….I picked this up after reading some reviews comparing it to Decapitated,which is one of my favorite technical/progressive death-metal bands, and was simply floored by it.
Gorod are a French band playing a very progressive, technical style of death metal most comparable to (as mentioned) Decapitated, as well as German metallers Necrophagist. Every aspect of this album is polished and well-produced, from the excellent, sharp and crisp production of the music itself, to the conceptual, nihilistic and very cool artwork (somewhat reminiscent of Giger’s dark “biomechanical” style) designed by band member and guitarist extraordinaire, Mathieu.
Guitarists and fans of excellent musicianship are in for a real treat here, as Gorod tears through track after track of convoluted, angular, and unpredictable riffs, odd time signature shifts, and eerie interludes. The great thing about this album, however, is the near jazz-fusion sensibility guitarist Mathieu brings to the table…progressive, incredible soloing and advanced rhythmic sensibilities combined with an unusual ability to infuse a heavy style like this with jazz guitar elements and motifs, and occasionally a bit of old-school American flat-five blues riffing…(!) Very, very cool and strange. I haven’t been this satisfied with a cerebral bludgeioning since Meshuggah. Highly recommended for fans of extremely technical metal or just great “shred” guitar.
