The band originated from Rock Forest, near Sherbrooke (Québec) but eventually relocated to Montréal.

Luc Lemay resurrected Gorguts under the advice of Negativa bandmate Steeve Hurdle, when it was decided that Negativa would move in a different direction rather than being a continuation of the Gorguts sound.

An instrumental demo of one of the new songs consisting of Lemay playing the rhythm guitar part over a click track was leaked onto the Internet in December of 2008, after which Lemay confirmed that Gorguts had indeed been reformed.

Compilation appearances:
- “Disincarnate” on Rock Hard Presents Monsters of Death (R/C, 1992).
- “Hideous Infirmity” on At Death’s Door II (Roadrunner, 1993).
