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.”

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

GOROD’s art is fully expressed on stage thanks to their explosive energy and mind bogglingly tight live performances. In conjunction with the release of The OrbGOROD will return to North America for a month-long headlining run. The Orb Release Tour will begin March 16th in Brooklyn, New York and runs through April 15th in Richmond, Virginia.
