The Skinny: Critically-acclaimed death metal pioneers GORGUTS are streaming the title track off their forthcoming record, Colored Sands. “Colored Sands” is streaming now via SoundCloud.

Regarding the track, band founder and visionary Luc Lemay said: “‘Colored Sands’ tells the story about the intricate, poetic, mystic ritual of drawing sand mandalas. Tibetan pilgrims can walk for months, sometime a whole year, prostrating face to the ground every tree footsteps until they reach the place where the mandala will be executed. Once the mandala completed, the monks will dismantle the mandala, and take the sands to the closest stream of water. This stream will bring the sands to the river, the river to the immensity of the ocean to spread the mandala’s peace and beauty to the planet…”
