Technical metal icons GOROD recently announced their upcoming 10-track album, Aethra, set to be released on October 19, 2018 via their new international label,Overpowered Records. Aethra marks the 10th release from GOROD. The album is available to pre-order digitally via Amazon, iTunes and Google Play, and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records’ merchandise site.
Today, GOROD dropped the technical, melodic masterwork “The Sentry” – the first single to be released from Aethra. Listen to the track now streaming below.
Vocalist Julien Deyres says, “The concept behind “The Sentry” is that of worldwide myths and beliefs concerning the owl, and more specifically the barn owl. This nocturnal bird that is almost always associated with the moon in many different cultures is also generally considered as a guardian of the kingdom of the dead. This explains the title, and the lyrics are a global presentation of how human beings can perceive a same symbol in different places in the world.
We chose to release this song first because we see it as a good introduction to the new material on this album. This track is “straight in your face”, groovy, fast, and also showcases a brand new melodic orientation in GOROD‘s music.”
