Few extreme bands have the pedigree of GORGUTS. From their early days as part of death metal’s first wave (including legendary releases ‘Considered Dead’ and ‘Erosion of Sanity’), through their transformation into one of most progressive and influential bands in extreme metal, GORGUTS has been impervious to trends, and a vehicle to expand and redefine the language of extreme metal. The band’s 1998 album ‘Obscura’ sent a shockwave through the death metal word, and remains one of the genre’s most influential records to this day. Taking inspiration from classical composers, Luc Lemay’s use of atonal noise and sounds as part of his compositions helped reinvent extreme metal guitar playing. Lemay’s techniques on ‘Obscura’ continue to be a major influence for young metal players to this day.
