Gorod Premiere Official New Music Video “Bekhten’s Curse”

Along with the release of their new studio album “Aethra” comes the below premiere of Gorod‘s official new music video for their song “Bekhten’s Curse“. Watch it now below:

Comments Gorod‘s frontman Julien Deyres:

“Out of all of the songs on the album, these lyrics required the most research. I am not at all a specialist in Egyptian antiquity, but in doing my research on lunar deities I discovered this extraordinary story about a so-called miraculous healing of Ramesses II’s sister-in-law. This legend is engraved on a stela that is currently in the Louvre Museum and is a proven historical fake.

In this song, I am playing the role of a Bekhten’s city survivor, which was completely destroyed to restore a form of eventual reality… because way too often, popular legends such as this one were created to hide misdeeds by those who have the power and wish to be considered as heroes…”

Gorod Premiere New Song “The Sentry”

You can listen to Gorod’s new track titled “The Sentry” streaming below. The group premiere that song taken from their upcoming album, “Aethra“, out in stores on October 19th via Overpowered Records.

Says vocalist Julien Deyres of this latest single:

“The concept behind ‘The Sentry‘ is that of worldwide myths and beliefs concerning the owl, and more specifically the barn owl. This nocturnal bird that is almost always associated with the moon in many different cultures is also generally considered as a guardian of the kingdom of the dead. This explains the title, and the lyrics are a global presentation of how human beings can perceive a same symbol in different places in the world.

We chose to release this song first because we see it as a good introduction to the new material on this album. This track is “straight in your face”, groovy, fast, and also showcases a brand new melodic orientation in Gorod‘s music.”

The Prisoner (Gorod, Etc.) Debuts New Song “O Vengeance” From Upcoming New Album “Life Of The Mind”

Hailing from Paris, France blackened death metal outfit The Prisoner – featuring Gorod’s vocalist Julien Deyres – debuts a new song entitled “O Vengeance”, taken from the upcoming new album “Life Of The Mind”, out now via Bandcamp.

Check out now “O Vengeance” below.

Life Of The Mind by THE PRISONER

States the band:

“The story starts ten years ago; after a first album ‘The Silence, And Nothing…’ released in 2012 through Melancholia Records, The Prisoner’s tale now goes on with ‘Life Of The Mind’, a 100% self-produced second album. Slower, faster, sicker, and deeper, this one pushes the band’s themes and moods way further up to the extreme. Gorod’s vocalist Julien Deyres sacrifices his vocal chords on the altar of madness. Between Beirut, Paris and Glasgow, the band once again managed to handle the whole recording, mixing and recording tasks. No click nor trick involved: everything you hear has been tracked as rough as can be. The result is a powerful piece that sounds intense and sensitive. The Prisoner is unique. Yet, connoisseurs could possibly notice a hint to the epic touch of Emperor or Gorguts’s creepy insanity…”
