Canadian tech death outfit Gorguts have welcomed a new member to their ranks. Drummer Michel Bélanger, who has worked with The Flaying, Deviant Process amd Beyond Creation in the past, has assumed the role behind the kit. Gorguts linchpin Luc Lemay commented of this development yesterday, December 10th:

“Hi everyone,

I’m writing today to announce that drummer Michel Bélanger – Drummer will be joining Gorguts, as Patrice Hamelin has left the band for personal reasons and to focus on his business.

We want to wish Patrice all the best and we want to thank him for all these years for sharing the stage together!

We love you man!!!!!

I’ve met Michel a few years ago having played two shows with DEVIANT PROCESS from Québec city. His talent struck me right away! He’s a very skilled, talented, focused and devoted musician.

We can’t wait to hit the stage at Maryland Death Fest next spring with Michel!

Horns up everyone!!!!!” – Luc

If you missed the news, there’s also a sixth studio album from the band in the works. As mentiuoned above, Gorguts will be playing next year’s ‘Maryland Deathfest‘ in Baltimore, MD. That event will run from May 23rd-26th.
