With two top-notch songs in a row, Gorguts‘ Colored Sands is now my most anticipated album right now. Last month, we got our first taste of the album via the track ‘Forgotten Arrow’, which pretty much confirmed that the new album wasn’t going to suck. Now, a second song titled ‘An Ocean of Wisdom’ has surfaced, which continues the trend of off-the-wall progressive death metal that paved the way for bands like Ulcerate.
Here’s a little bit of info on the track before you listen:
Regarding the track, band founder and visionary Luc Lemay said “An Ocean of Wisdom” is a song telling the story about how the 14th Dalai Lama was found. When the 13th Dalai Lama died, he was put in a room, and from there, monks looked for signs and hints from his body. Also by consulting oracles and going to the sacred lake, Lhamo-Latso, the lake of vision, monks gathered all the elements so they knew where to look to find the Dalai Lama’s reincarnation. Above all, “Ocean of wisdom” is the english translation for: Dalai Lama.”
You can stream the track now at Invisible Oranges. It’s a relief to know that Gorguts are returning to the praise they deserved following Obscura. Colored Sands is going to rule. It’ll be out September 3rd on Season of Mist. Pre-orders are available at this location.
