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.”
