Gorguts

Over the course of its decade-plus existence, the Canadian quartet Gorguts has made the transition from being a highly skilled, yet still somewhat run-of-the-mill death metal band, to being one of the most advanced, experimental, and challenging groups in the entire genre. In the process, they have confounded many fans of their earlier records (and death metal in general) while at the same time earning the attention and respect of many listeners outside the metal community. The Quebec, Canada-based band formed in 1989 with a lineup consisting of Luc Lemay (guitar, vocals), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Eric Giguere (bass), and Stephane Provencher (drums). They released the cassette-only demo And Then Comes Lividity in 1990, which led them to sign with Roadrunner Records. Their full-length debut, Considered Dead, came out in 1991 and featured guest appearances by guitarist James Murphy (Death) and vocalist Chris Barnes (Cannibal Corpse). The Erosion of Sanity followed in 1993 and continued to mine a similar vein. However, coinciding with the decline of death metal's popularity peak, they were subsequently dropped from the Roadrunner roster.

The band then went into a five-year state of limbo, during which all members except Lemay left; in fact, many fans and observers assumed them to have broken up. However, they eventually returned -- drastically retooled -- with Steeve Hurdle (guitar/vocals), Steve Cloutier (bass), and Patrick Robert (drums) filling in the missing slots. Signed to Olympic Records, this lineup released Obscura (1998), an uncompromising, hugely ambitious album that met with a mixed reception: some applauded its experimentation, while others found it too far-out and dissonant. Hurdle left Gorguts after this album and was replaced by Daniel Mongrain of the Canadian technical metal group Martyr. From Wisdom to Hate, Gorguts' first album with Mongrain, followed in early 2001. ~ William York, Rovi

FACELESS ONES IS THE BEST AHH
A Path Beyond Premonition ♥ love it
Why does everyone recognize obscura? Yeah its different but not amazing...th e r e ' s other bands that sound like it l. Considered dead and erosion for life
Good s**t. I remember when Gorguts 1st came out around the same time as all the other death metal bands such as Suffocation, O b i t u a r y , M o r b i d Angel,Immola t i o n etc.
obscura = technical mastery..... . . . . o r g a s m i c brain-meltin g goodness
Death Metal is cool thing
Considered Dead & Erosion of Sanity are my favorite Death Metal Albums! WITH THEIR FLESH HE'L CREEEEEEAAAA A A A T E E E !
Obscura is awesome, the newer stuff sounds like Mastodon, although I am glad Gorguts is still around. Sounds like they only retained one guitar player from the original lineup, so it is pretty much a different band.

I think it's simple: you fall into the "older" camp or the "newer" camp, and not a lot in between. I love the classic older stuff the most. I consider myself pretty open-minded musically, but Gorguts' later stuff just didn't connect with me.
just had my first listen, it was "sweet silence" from Obscura, i was impressed and gave it the ole thumbs up.
I really like how, starting on the Obscura material, that they replaced the power chord's root-p5-8ve to root-b5-b9, it's sure brilliance; opening up a whole new tonality. Diminished and altered scales are in such easy access. It's nice to listen to a death metal band that is actually a-tonal or off the beaten path of discovering different tonal centers. It creates a whole new idea of melody as well.... Or at least in my opinion.
I'm with Legion. Obscura is where it's at.
THE BEST STUFF IS THE EARLY S**T! FROM WISDOM TO HATE AND OBSCURA WHERE NOT MY FAVS. THE EROSION OF SANITY IS AMASTERPIECE ! !
