Gorguts

gorgutsGorguts are a technical death metal band from Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. They were formed in 1989 by Luc Lemay (vocals and guitar), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Éric Giguère (bass) and Stephane Provencher (drums). They released their first demo, …And Then Comes Lividity, in 1990 which led them to be signed to Roadrunner Records. Their first album, Considered Dead, featured guest appearances by James Murphy (a guitar solo on “Inoculated Life”) and Chris Barnes (backing vocals on “Bodily Corrupted,” “Rottenatomy,” and “Hematological Allergy”).

In 1993, they released their second album, which was more experimental and technical, titled The Erosion of Sanity. After the release however, Roadrunner decided to drop them. Subsequently, the band went into hiatus for five years, with many fans believing that they had broken up. Then Lemay, the only remaining original member, returned in 1998 on Olympic Records with a new line-up consisting of Steeve Hurdle (guitar); Steve Cloutier (bass); and Patrick Robert (drums). This lineup released the album Obscura, which explored progressive and avant-garde territory.
