Recently reactivated Quebec-based technical death metal band Gorguts have reportedly entered the studio to start pre-production on the new album, tentatively scheduled for a summer 2011 release through a yet-to-be-determined label.

The band's current line-up consists of drummer John Longstreth (Origin, ex-Angelcorpse), bassist Colin Marston (Behold... The Arctopus, Krallice, Dysrhythmia), guitarist Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, ex-While Heaven Wept), along longtime Gorguts vocalist/guitarist Luc Lemay.

The same Luc Lemay issued the following update: "Just a few words to let you know where we are with the songwriting of the new album. We got together at the end of January to finish up the last songs to complete the album. Colin and Kevin have contributed to the album with a song each. Amazingly well composed their songs suits the Gorguts aesthetic wonderfully.

The album will have a total of 9 songs including one instrumental piece for string orchestra composed by me. The album is going to be over one hour long. It's still very brutal but darkly, ambient and progressive as well. The album main concept is going to be a musical journey that will talk about the wonders of Tibet as well as the dramatic fate they've been going through for over 50 years now.

I'm hard at work on the lyrics as I'm writing this update. For this album, I wanted to have all the music finished first before writing any lyrics. This way, having all the musical canvas done I can now concentrate on the story telling aspect. When everything will be ready we're going to record the album along with my longtime friend and producer Pierre Remillard at his Wild Studio in Quebec.

Since we're still discussing with a label, we can't tell you a street date yet for the release of the album but we're shooting for this Summer. In the meantime, you can enjoy for the first time this new song taken from one of our pre-production session which was recorded by Colin at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves Studio in Queens NY.

The wait is almost over for us to unleash this new beast."
