Description/Reviews
Pleiades’ Dust plays mostly in the progressive death metal that we had heard on Colored Sands. But, to reiterate myself, this isn’t that album. Pleiades’ Dust takes Gorguts further down an experimental lane with more somber moments and a more epic flow. The way that Colin Marston (bass), Kevin Hufnagel (guitar) and Patrice Hamelin (drums) play with Lemay brings out a feeling of discomfort. How? The simple fact that Gorguts expand their vision here beyond even death metal. Colored Sands gave them that avant-garde edge previously, but here they play with their possibilities even more. Death metal still remains the core, however, but the piece also encompasses experimental textures of progressive rock/metal, classical composition, a bit of thrash (see: around 6:50) and ambient minimalism.
