  • Description

    Formed in 1991 in the south of France by Chris (guitar/vocal), the band, pioneer of black metal in its country, with different line-ups, played 2 gigs in 1992 and released its unique and classic studio 4 track demo tape « Call from unknown depths ».
    In 1993, a Italian label published their 3 songs E.P. « Immortal horde », the very first E.P. for a French black metal band. The band played gigs with No return, Mercyless or Samaël. During Gorgon’s show, the latter Swiss band notices their second guitarist at this period, who will join Samaël later.
    They played as headliner in Italy with Opera IX in 1994 and recorded their first album « The Lady rides a black horse » which was released in CD in 1995 with lyrics about satanism,witchcraft and dark topics.
    « Reign of obscenity », the second studio album was released in 1996, published as tape version next year by a Slovakian label. Rougher and more melodic, it always contains the same subjects in lyrics.

    After years of silence, Chris decided to compose new songs and joined Osmose’s legions at the end of 2017. Few months later, two French labels have re-issued the 1992 demo on vinyl format.
    With its new blackest album recorded during the summer months of 2018 and featured original member Chris primary instrumentalist and also utilising a session drummer, 2019 will be the year of Gorgon’s triumphant return.
