If you haven’t heard of Gorod, you haven’t heard much of anything. Gorod are a french tech death band with a wide variety of interesting world music influences. They aren’t particularly full of low end chunky riffs but they still manage to be remotely heavy and contain great songwriting. They’re back with a new release for June 1st, which might be floating around on the internet somewhere, but I don’t know for sure. I also don’t know that it’s great.
You can catch a couple tracks over at their myspace.
