13. Gorguts – Colored Sands





Quebec’s Gorguts are the godfathers of technical death metal. Every album in the genre is attempting to live up to Gorguts’ influence. The whirlwind riffs, the mathematical drumming, the progressive, complex song structure, the obvious jazz influence…these are things that lots of bands have come to be incredibly proficient at, modeling themselves after Gorguts. In Colored Sands, a concept album about Tibetan monks & Gorguts’ first album since 2001, they show that perhaps the only band to live up to them is them. Riffs on riffs on riffs. Walls of sound broken down by relentless drumming. A classical, orchestral composition in the middle of the album because why not. There’s not much more I can say here. Either the prospect of complex riffs excites you or it doesn’t.
