Bordeaux, France-based technical death metal goliaths GOROD will release their long-awaited seventh album, The Orb, on March 7th.

The follow-up to the band’s critically lauded Æthra full-length stands as their most accomplished work of their twenty-six year career. With The Orb, the quintet delivers both a synthesis of their previous efforts and opens to new, more accessible horizons. Far from being an average classic tech death act, GOROD continually diversifies its inspirations. With a unique groove mingled with melodies and rich harmonies inspired by ‘70s jazz, funk, and rock, their progressive and sophisticated approach to their sound has always given them a unique identity. The Orb furthers that trajectory. 

Comments the band, “The overall composition of this album stretched out more in time than Æthra, which allowed us to try new things. We wanted to go both a little further in new experiments but also return back to our own sources in order to highlight the contrasts. From the most spontaneous to the most polished, we’ve put together the most accessible and extreme material we could.”


In advance of the record’s release, GOROD has released two videos. Watch a lyric video for “Breeding Silence” HERE and a video for The Orb’s title track HERE. An additional album teaser will be unveiled in the coming days.

The Orb was produced by David Thiers at Secret Place Studio and will be released on CD, LP, and digitally. Find preorders at THIS LOCATION.
