Gorod are a band from France that plays a very brutal, technical and progressive form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "A Maze Of Recycled Creeds" which was released in 2015 by Unique Leader.
Tragic sounding pianos along with background voices start off the album before going into a very fast and technical death metal sound that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats as well as a great mixture of both growls and screams and the guitar solos and leads also demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill.
You can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and also bring in a great amount of prog metal elements and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word patts and back up gang shouts.
When clean playing is utilized also adds a touch of jazz and funk to the bands musical style and as the album progresses synths can also be heard at times and the blast parts and faster sections of the song bring in a very brutal style of death metal and there is also a brief use of groove metal style vocals on one of the tracks while also getting more melodic on another song.
Gorod plays a style of death metal that can be brutal at times while focusing more on a technical and progressive style while also mixing in influences from non metal genres to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept based upon the Rose-Coix, Secret Societies and Mystical Orders.
In my opinion Gorod are a very great sounding technical and progressive death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Temple To the Art-God" "Inner Alchemy" and "Syncretic Delirium". 8 out of 10.
