Gorguts: Pleiades' Dust

Album Review

Quebec’s DM magicians head further into the fourth dimension

Clocking in at 33 minutes, this single-track release is one massive cinematic movement that draws on on the classical music leitmotivs Gorguts mastermind Luc Lemay is so fond of.

Hearing him cite both Porcupine Tree’s The Incident and Deathspell Omega’s EPs as sources of inspiration is revelatory in itself, as Pleiades’ Dust lies exactly somewhere in the middle, where the eerie, the divine and the heavy-beyond-belief somehow meet. This is a direct continuation of Gorguts’ 2013 comeback album, but with even more colours added to the palette.
