Process of a New Decline
Gorod Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Process of a New Decline is the third full-length studio album by French progressive tech death metal act Gorod. The album was released on Willowtip / Listenable Records. Having released two excellent tech death metal albums in Neurotripsicks (2005) and Leading Vision (2006) there must have been a great deal of pressure on Gorod to produce another great album and after listening to Process of a New Decline I think itīs safe to say that theyīve succeeded in doing just that.

The music is complex and challenging progressive death metal. Lots of tempo and time signature changes throughout the album. Thereīs a significant neo-classical element in the music too. The music is very brutal and the deep growling vocals suit the music well even though I could have wished for a more varied vocal style ( a bit too monotone after a while). While the music certainly is crushingly heavy and brutal there are lots of melodic guitar runs and the music actually comes off rather sophisticated at times. This is without a doubt Gorodīs most melodic and accessible album to date. Do expect tech metal madness though this is not an easy listen.

An album like Planetary Duality (2008) by The Faceless is an obvious reference IMO and fans of The Faceless should definitely take a listen to Process of a New Decline. Process of a New Decline isnīt as accomplished as Planetary Duality though ( and generally a bit slower paced), but I think itīs more a question of personal taste on my behalf than itīs a question of quality because the quality level is extremely high on Process of a New Decline. The songwriting, the musicianship and the production are all excellent and Process of a New Decline fully deserves a 4 star rating.

4 stars Leading Vision is the second album from French technical death metal band Gorod. Gorod started their career under the Gorgasm monicker but changed name to Gorod after their debut album. The debut album has since been re-released under the Gorod monicker. I was very impressed with Gorodīs debut album Neurotripsicks which really made a great entry in my mind. Fast runs, tempo and time signature changes and a brutal aggressive sound is what you can expect if you listen to Neurotripsicks.

The music on Leading Vision continues the style that was introduced on Neurotripsicks but adds a more simple approach to the music which means that this album is a bit more direct and brutal than Neurotripsicks ( This also means that it is a bit more memorable IMO). The many melodic guitar runs on Neurotripsicks are fewer on Leading Vision. There are some great guitar solos on Leading Vision. Some are semi-jazzy. Gorodīs overall sound has taken a notch up in the brutality department ( best examplified by the opening song Here Die Your Gods) and the music can be compared to bands like Suffocation and Aborted but with an additional complex approach. This is first and foremost a death metal album though. Very powerful. The technical playing is a means to an end and not the focal point in Gorodīs music on Leading Vision.

The growling vocals from Guillaume needs to be mentioned here as he is a great vocalist. No semi-growling powerless vocals here say thank you. Guillaumeīs vocals are ultra brutal and powerful. He really gives his all. The technical level of all the musicians are way above average and itīs a real joy for me to listen to musicians this accomplished.

The production is excellent. Note how clear you can hear the bass in the mix ( The bass is sadly missing focus on many metal productions IMO) yet the overall sound is still sharp and edgy.

If you enjoy bands like Cryptopsy, Decapitated, Necrophagist, Martyr and Death, Gorod is sure to please your taste. Technical death metal that emphasises power and brutality before complex playing fits my taste very well and I think Leading Vision is highly recommendable to fans of the genre. The album fully deserves 4 stars.

Neurotripsicks
Gorod Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR

4 stars Neurotripsicks is the debut album from French tech death metal band Gorod. Gorod started life as Gorgasm and Neurotripsicks was as far as Iīm informed released under this monicker before being released under the Gorod name.

The music is complex and technical death metal. Brutal yet sophisticated and with lots of great technical guitar licks. The vocals are ultra brutal and there is in addition to the deep sub woofer vocals a couple of piggy grunts which seems to be very porpular among extreme metal bands these days. The vocals are processed which is something Iīm not very fond of normally but in this case itīs allright even though I would have prefered a more understandable vocal ( yet still brutal).

The songs are very complex in structure and there are many riffs in each song, but after listening to the album many times it all falls into place and the songs become memorable. My favorite is probably Smoked Skulls. Most of the music is mid to fast paced with the occasional Suffocation like blast beat, but the pace is generally not in blast beat tempo. A song like Earth Pus is pretty fast paced though. Neuronal Disorder State is a bit different from the rest as it has an industrial edge to it.

The musicianship is excellent. Tight interplay and technically accomplished musicians.

The production is good and everything is right in the mix. The drums have a more modern sound than I normally like but they sound pretty good here.

This album places Gorod firmly among the elite of tech death metal bands that have appeared in the last ten years. Bands like Cryptopsy, Decapitated, Necrophagist, Psycroptic and Martyr. Gorod succeeds in making very complex music yet still maintaining the brutal ( simple) accessibility which is so important in death metal. This is a well deserved 4 star album. I canīt wait to hear their next one.
