why "gorod"?

it is quite strange to see a band from France named "Gorod".
the word "Gorod" means "city" or "town" in Russian.
why Frenchmen took Russian word for their band's name?
just interesting.
maybe you even speak Russian a little?

Willowtip dubbed this band Gorod for American territories when they picked up their "Neurotripsicks" for release in that continent, because these crazy Frenchies initially called themselves Gorgasm.

The American DM band Gorgasm (which you might have heard of, if you are in the genre long enough) had already released a bunch of albums long before this French band got formed.
