Music: Gorguts
Gorguts are a Canadian Avant-Garde Technical Death Metal band. They formed in 1989 with Luc Lemay (vocals and guitar), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Éric Gigučre (bass guitar) and Stephane Provencher (drums) as the original lineup. After a deal struck with Roadrunner with their demo, they released their debut album in 1991, later being released in 2004 along with the sophomore effort following suit.

In 1993, activity ceased until 1998, with Obscura being released, with Lemay being the only original member left. When Hurdle left, Lemay got yet another new lineup. Steve MacDonald commited suicide in 2002, leading to Gorguts' split.

In 2008, however, Lemay reformed the band with yet another new lineup. Within that time up till 2013, they had been working on new material, which was leaked 2 months in advance, with Label Season of Mist releasing a digital release a month after.

As of March 2014, John Longstreth is no longer a member, as his schedule with Origin was incompatible with that of Gorguts. Patrice Hamelin will be manning the kit for all upcoming tours, but it's not clear as to whether he'll join as a full-time member or not.
