GORGUTS

Colored Sands

(Season Of Mist)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 8.0

Back in 2003 when the self-titled VOIVOD record was on the verge of being released, Jason Newsted told the metal press that a world that appreciated, embraced and understood SYSTEM OF A DOWN was a world that was finally catching up to VOIVOD’s vision, a vision that seemed expansively ahead of its time and lunatic-fringe forward-thinking during the early-to-mid ‘80s. The same idea can be applied to GORGUTS, an equally ahead of its time group that never really attained the attention nor credit it deserved circa ‘98’s Obscura and ‘01’ From Wisdom To Hate, two records that are now revered as the seminal classics that they’ve always been. Greg Pratt tells the story of mentioning Gorguts and its legacy to a bunch of clueless, BORN OF OSIRIS-obsessed guys in their early 20s, and it’s precisely this patently ignorant Osiris demographic that owes so much to Gorguts, CRYPTOPSY and the aforementioned Voivod; let’s hope the release of Colored Sands, and the interest it will generate, will change all of that. Anchored by founder/technical death legend Luc Lemay and boasting a lineup that includes Colin Marston (KRALLICE, DYSRYTHMIA, BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS), John Longstreth (ORIGIN, DIM MAK) and Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRYTHMIA), Gorguts is now a veritable strength-on-strength of creativity and dissonance, Colored Sands taking the collective to the type of dimension hatross even Obscura couldn’t conceptualize. Colored Sands is the celebration of a band that was ahead of its time 15 years ago, but now finds itself standing toe to toe with its disciples, and when the whirlwind that is ‘Absconders’ or the caustic, staring-at-the-abyss of ‘Enemies Of Compassion’ show the scope of their propositions, one is certain that now is the time for the world to catch up to Gorguts’ vision.
