Gorod NA Tour 2013

Gorod‘s latest opus in 2012’s A Perfect Absolution made my year-end list of highlights. The French prog death metal outfit hit new heights with stellar songwriting and a touch more wild progressive flourish, such as the funk-influenced ‘Carved in the Wind‘ and the wildly exotic ‘Varangian Paradise.’ They’re no mere tech death band, that’s for sure. Since falling in love with A Perfect Absolution, I’ve been hoping for a Gorod North American tour. Though, they are a small band, and they all have commitments outside of music. I’ve since given up on the hope of seeing them perform live any time soon. BUT NOT SO FAST!

Just when I expected to only be able to catch Gorod as a small support act on a larger tour (say, Summer Slaughter) a few years from now after gaining a larger international presence, it was announced that they will actually be doing a headlining tour this year with support from Inanimate Existence, Kamikabe, and Vale of Pnath.
