Gorguts

This Quebec, Canada-based death metal band, formed by Luc Lemay (vocals), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Eric Giguere (bass) and Stephane Provencher (drums), promised great things on their 1991 debut, Considered Dead, which featured guest spots from the Death guitarist James Murphy and Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes.

This Quebec, Canada-based death metal band, formed by Luc Lemay (vocals), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Eric Giguere (bass) and Stephane Provencher (drums), promised great things on their 1991 debut, Considered Dead, which featured guest spots from the Death guitarist James Murphy and Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes.

The Roadrunner Records label had signed the band on the strength of the impressive ...And Then Comes Lividity demo of1990.However, The Erosion Of Sanity failed to make an impact in the midst of the black metal explosion of 1993 and band and label parted ways. Gorguts then fell silent for five years, and many fans assumed that they had parted ways permanently, but singe rLemay returned in 1998 with a new line-up (guitarist Steeve Hurdle, bass player Steve Cloutier and drummer Patrick Robert), anew contract with the Olympic label and Obscura, which lived up to its title by exploring progressive, almost avantgarde areasto an uncertain response. From Wisdom To Hate, featuring new guitarist Daniel Mongrain, was similarly difficult,but Gorguts are nothing if not persevering.

The band's first demo was never released on CD and the band's classic albums Considered Dead (1991) and The ErosionofSanity (1993) have been out of print for years now, sowe thought that, Gorguts' fans would enjoy hearing these songsonceagain. Steve MacDonald played on the 1993 and 1995 demo, as well as on Track #18 ("Inoculated Life" - live).Steve is sadly missed but not forgotten.

Luc Lemay has confirmed in late 2005 that the band doesn't exist anymore and that he and Steeve Hurdle will continue working on their new project called Negativa. « hide
