Regarding ‘Pleiades’ Dust’, GORGUTS founder Luc Lemay comments:
It with great joy that we can finally share this new sonic painting with you. I must say that I’ve been looking forward this moment for quite some time now. I couldn’t be more proud of this new amalgam of themes, ambiances and surprises that appeared along the process of carving this new composition. I like to call them “happy accidents”. That’s what the beauty of writing and composing is all about.
I’m also very happy that the story of a long forgotten library made his way to my curiosity. With this theme, I was able to pay an ode to those ancient thinkers, to the beauty of books and history. Three things that have been fascinating me for a long, long time.
A unique and incredibly ambitious concept masterminded by band founder Luc Lemay, ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ runs as a single, continuous track that spans over 30 minutes of total run-time. ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on May 13th. ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ is available for pre-order across several CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
The album art for ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ was illustrated by renowned artist Zbigniew M. Bielak (MAYHEM, WATAIN, GHOST, and more).
