More information about Colored Sands

Critically-acclaimed death metal pioneers GORGUTS just unveiled the second new track off their forthcoming record, ‘Colored Sands’. The song, entitled “An Ocean of Widsom” is streaming now at the following locations:


Regarding the track, band founder and visionary Luc Lemay said “”An Ocean of Wisdom” is a song telling the story about how the 14th Dalai Lama was found. When the 13th Dalai Lama died, he was put in a room, and from there, monks looked for signs and hints from his body. Also by consulting oracles and going to the sacred lake, Lhamo-Latso, the lake of vision, monks gathered all the elements so they knew where to look to find the Dalai Lama’s reincarnation. Above all, “Ocean of wisdom” is the English translation for: Dalai Lama.”

Prior to the stream of “An Ocean of Widsom”, GORGUTS released a lyric video for the track “Forgotten Arrows”. 12 years in the making, the long-awaited new GORGUTS album, ‘Colored Sands’ is slated for release on August 30th (September 3rd in North America).
