Biography

Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada (1989 – 2005, 2008 – present)

A highly technical and avant-garde band, Gorguts was formed in 1989 by Luc Lemay (guitar/vocals), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Eric Giguere (bass) and Stephane Provencher (drums) in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. They recorded a demo in 1990 entitled “And Then Comes Lividity”, and then in 1991 released “Considered Dead” on Roadrunner, their first full length of death metal. The release was very promising, and even included a guest guitar solo by James Murphy and guest vocals by Chris Barnes. Two years later in 1993, they released their second full length entitled “The Erosion of Sanity”. Similar in style to their debut, this album had showed Gorguts had indeed developed in musicianship. However, this album was overlooked and became an unheard classic for many years.

The band fell silent for five years. Many assumed Gorguts was no more, until 1998 when Luc Lemay assembled a new lineup and unleashed a classic in avant-garde death metal “Obscura”, which many will agree is the most technical, chaotic and downright lucid metal album ever recorded. Filled with irregular beats, discordant riffing, and complex song arrangements, “Obscura” turned out to be either indigestible by many, or seen for its true beauty by few. Three years later, Gorguts returned once again with “From Wisdom to Hate”.
