Technical metal icons GOROD have released their brand new 10-track album, Aethra, today viaOverpowered Records! The album can be ordered digitally via AmazoniTunes and Google Play, and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records’ merchandise site.

In celebration of today’s release, GOROD have revealed an epic, cinematic music video for the track “Bekhten’s Curse”, produced by Disclosure Productions and available to view now via Revolver. Watch HERE.

Vocalist Julien Deyres tells Revolver“Out of all of the songs on the album, these lyrics required the most research. I am not at all a specialist in Egyptian antiquity, but in doing my research on lunar deities I discovered this extraordinary story about a so-called miraculous healing of Ramesses II’s sister-in-law. This legend is engraved on a stela that is currently in the Louvre Museum and is a proven historical fake. In this song, I am playing the role of a Bekhten’s city survivor, which was completely destroyed to restore a form of eventual reality… because way too often, popular legends such as this one were created to hide misdeeds by those who have the power and wish to be considered as heroes…”

With AethraGOROD 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.
