Guitarist Luc Lemay from legendary Quebec-based death metallers GORGUTS has issued the following update:
"I’ve decided that it was time for me to confirm all the rumors about GORGUTS making a new record!
So, yes I’ve been working on new material since August/ September 2008.
The idea came together after the suggestion from my long time, partner in crime: Steve Hurdle. One evening after a NEGATIVA rehearsal, Steeve brought up the fact that 2009 being the 20th anniversary of Gorguts, it would be nice for me to give to the fans a new record!!!
I immediately love the idea and not long after I started writing material for this record.
Then I got in touch with John Longstreth (ORIGIN, DIM MAK), and John said yes right away! John and I have been writing to each other for a few years, and we both had, back then, the intention of doing some kind of musical project together. Then I knew from square one that I wanted to have Colin Marston on bass. Big Steeve showed me some DYSRHYTHMIA videos…. that’s how I got blown away by the playing and musical style of Kevin Huffnagel! At my big surprise they both agreed to be part of my next record!
So finally, I got to jam for the first time with John this past January and we’ve put together three songs with drums and guitars!
In the meantime, the search for a female vocalist for Negativa continues, and the writing process within the band is very active! We have a massive, intricate musical landscape ready for your ears to be discovered!!!!!!
I want to thank, from the heart, all the fans that have been supporting Gorguts through all those years….it’s because of you that I found my place and my voice as an artist. I can’t wait to share this new record with you!"
