Gorguts have announced that they will be reissuing Obscura and From Wisdom To Hate through Century Media Records this spring. Gorguts founder Luc Lemay issued the following statement on the forthcoming reissues:
“Hi everybody! It’s with excitement that I write these lines to you today, because I’m proud to announce that our 1998 record Obscura and 2001’s From Wisdom To Hate will finally be re-released! We did a lot of touring for our latest record, Colored Sands, and everyday someone would ask me when Obscura would be out again. Well, here we are!!!!
For this re-issue, I decided to include liner notes that tell the story behind each record. How we got together as musicians, what was the composition process that made this sound possible and that made us grow as artists.
You’ll also notice that both re-releases bear the new logo. Well, I decided to change the logo because, with a step back, I realized that I never really like the original one on Obscura and I wanted to give the record a fresh look. I kept the same logo for From Wisdom To Hate, because it was created for this record.
Thanks again to all our fans for their unconditional support through all those years…
Krank the volume to 11………INTRA LIMPIDUS OBSCURA!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
