Art by Jeff Grimal   Technical metal icons  GOROD  recently announced their upcoming 10-track album,   Aethra  , set to be released on October 19, 2018 via their new international label,Overpowered Records. The album is available to pre-order digitally via  Amazon ,  iTunes  and  Google Play , and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records'  merchandise site .  Today,  GOROD  revealed a brand new drum recording video featuring drummer Karol Diers. Watch the video and read all about Karol's recording process on   Aethra   via  Modern Drummer :   https://www.moderndrummer.com/2018/10/on-the-beat-with-karol-of-gorod-talks-improvisation-and-gear/   Karol tells  Modern Drummer :  "This studio recording was a crazy challenge for me because I was actually composing my own patterns and fills during the tracking sessions. Mathieu, the main composer of    GOROD   , finished writing the last song of the whole album less than one week before I started recording drums!"

With   Aethra  ,  GOROD  transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe - a completely new level of darkness - while preserving what  GOROD  considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.    Aethra  track listing:   1) Wolfsmond  2) Bekhten's Curse  3) Aethra  4) The Sentry  5) Hina  6) And the Moon Turned Black  7) Chandra and the Maiden  8) Goddess of Dirt  9) Inexorable  10) A Light Unseen  Vocalist Julien Deyres explains the concept behind   Aethra  ,  "The moon: a star, an allegory, a universal symbol that concerns all peoples and eras... this is the central theme of the lyrical concept of this album which is divided into ten texts that follow a form of parity in terms of genres: four titles are devoted to female lunar deities, four to male deities. The remaining two are respectively dealing with the universal symbolism of the owl and the star itself.    The concept is basically a study of different cults associated with the moon through the ages and peoples. Some themes are treated in a purely narrative way, some others in a more philosophical or poetic way, but generally it remains a personal reading of each myth, which aims to awaken critical thought as much as evasion."   Mathieu Pascal adds,  "The writing process was exceptionally short, only six weeks. I wanted more spontaneous and song-oriented music with clear and efficient structures. For the first time I tried to write the music always thinking stage-wise, always anticipating how every riff or lead would be perceived live, and of course how it could be performed."   As a live band through and through,  GOROD  plan to bring their trademark power and precision to North America on a full tour in support of   Aethra  . Before coming to the states,  GOROD  will tour in Europe and the UK with headliners  Beyond Creation , as well as fellow support artists  Entheos  and  Brought By Pain .
