GORGUTS guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay previously told Zero Tolerance magazine about "Colored Sands": "It's a whole concept album, so I've been reading books for a year a year and a half for the lyrics to know what I'm going to talk about.

"The lyrics process is very hard for me. First, I'm French, and then I need to educate myself on the topic I'm going to talk about. I'm not going to educate myself on the Chinese invasion of Tibet with a Wikipedia thing.

"I bought piles of books. I feel the same way I did at the conservatory when I was writing classical pieces. It takes months and months, the pieces you just can't get it out of your system. You need to become a sponge, you need to get soaked with the topic. So far so good I'm very very happy with what we've done.

"In the first place I wanted to write the whole album about the rituals of mandalas made with sand. One day my girlfriend's little daughter colored in a coloring book a mandala for me and I wondered what a mandala was, I liked the word. I searched on the Internet and found out this is a Tibetan thing and then it clicked, this is gonna be it, but I didn't have any clue, I wasn't very educated on the Tibetan culture. This mandala thing gets so complex, you could study it for 25-30 years before you know exactly what you're talking about, so I said, 'Okay, I'll take it from a different angle.' It's not a National Geographic documentary either. It's very poetic and very epic. This is my vision. I have no pretension about telling 'truth'; it's how I feel about these people."

I've listened to this a few times now and I think it's awesome. The music is a bit more restrained, but it still sounds like a Gorguts song. I can't wait to hear the rest of the album!

I don't know if I'm in the minority or not, but Gorguts' first few albums are amazing but I really don't like their "prog" stuff.

I love the first two, I'm not big on Obscura, but then I also love From Wisdom.

Obscura is a little too much experimentation for me, whereas From Wisdom has a better balance with songwriting.

This. It's probably going to be the metal album of the year for me if the rest is as good as this.

You're missing out! It's definitely an acquired taste though.

I'm thinking so too. I was expecting it to be good, but now with this song I'm even more excited about it.

Only confirms my idea that this will be one of the best albums of the year. :rocker:
