"Gomorrah's new album is going to rip the death metal scene apart! Technical, punishing with enough groove and melody to keep any listener captivated! Look out for their new album coming out in early 2016!" comments label founder / owner Grant Truesdell.
GOMORRAH, formed in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia originally as a black metal outfit in 2006 has now
Vancouver, BC based Test Your Metal Records is proud to announce its next signing of Kelowna, BC's leading death metal architects GOMORRAH. Already sharing the stage with such bands as Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Archspire, Ancients, Striker, Origin, Beyond Creation, King Parrot, Ninjaspy, KenMode, Bison BC, The Agonist, Fuck The Facts and creating a strong following in their home province and the Okanagan Valley, the brutal death metal band will be releasing their yet to be titled second full length on the label in 2016 to follow up their independently released 2013 debut album 'Perception'.
GOMORRAH recently released their summer single 'A Disaster's Nightmare' with the support of a music video, which can be viewed below and available for download here.
“We have stepped up the quality of everything: the pre production process, the writing, structuring, lyrics, individual performances, mix and master have been improved. The combination of all those improvements translates to a major difference between our previous recordings and the single "A Disaster's Nightmare" as well as this forthcoming full-length. Improvement, through effort and time.” Comments guitarist Bowen Matheson.
Their name is best associated for its historical reference to the city of sinners as stated in the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an and Hadith, the Torah, and the New Testament, in which Gomorrah was destroyed by a higher power and lay in ruins. The band mimics the feeling of claustrophobic animosity one could imagine in the city leading up to its destruction through their punishing guitar, high-speed drumming, and guttural vocals while creating dark, irking soundscapes. The lyrics are inspired by the instrumentals and lyrically provide a gateway into each individual story being portrayed.
Coming from various musical backgrounds, members Bowen Matheson (Father’s Lung, Frozen Soil), Connor Bartley (Creative Bloodline), and Jeff Bryan (Atre Este, I, Atrocity, and Superhero Bestfriend) have taken their past experiences ranging from jazz to metal, to coalesces into a signature brand of aggressive metal.
Gomorrah has shared the stage with Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Archspire, Ancients, Striker Origin, Beyond Creation, King Parrot, Ninjaspy, KenMode,Bison BC, The Agonist, Fuck The Facts, The Order of Chaos, Slumlord, Fall City Fall.
