Gorguts

This Quebec, Canada-based death metal band, formed by Luc Lemay (vocals), Sylvain Marcoux (guitar), Eric Giguere (bass) and Stephane Provencher (drums), promised great things on their 1991 debut, Considered Dead, which featured guest spots from the Death guitarist James Murphy and Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes.

The Roadrunner Records label had signed the band on the strength of the impressive ...And Then Comes Lividity demo of 1990. However, The Erosion Of Sanity failed to make an impact in the midst of the black metal explosion of 1993 and band and label parted ways. Gorguts then fell silent for five years, and many fans assumed that they had parted ways permanently, but singer Lemay returned in 1998 with a new line-up (guitarist Steeve Hurdle, bass player Steve Cloutier and drummer Patrick Robert), a new contract with the Olympic label and Obscura, which lived up to its title by exploring progressive, almost avant garde areas to an uncertain response. From Wisdom To Hate, featuring new guitarist Daniel Mongrain, was similarly difficult, but Gorguts are nothing if not persevering.

The band's first demo was never released on CD and the band's classic albums Considered Dead (1991) and The Erosion of Sanity (1993) have been out of print for years now, so we thought that, Gorguts' fans would enjoy hearing these songs once again. Steve MacDonald played on the 1993 and 1995 demo, as well as on Track #18 ("Inoculated Life" - live). Steve is sadly missed but not forgotten.

Sapremia

In 2012, Sapremia was signed by Butchered Records and the new release, Autumn's Moon will be released in Spring 2013. Sapremia has done several tours since coming off hiatus, in both the US and Canada. June 2013 marks the first time the band will embark on a full US tour, which will include an appearance at the Las Vegas Death Fest.
