The GATES OF SLUMBER (U.S.) “…the Awakening” CD review

The Awakening came in 2004 from the Belgian Final Chapter Records and meant for many fans of doom metal the first encounter with The Gates Of Slumber from Indianapolis. This debut is now re-released on CD. This had already done once have been through the Chilean Emissary Records but to my knowledge never did. This label has no best turn made ??with a certain release of Reverend Bizarre, but that aside. Iron Kodex Records released the album on LP or earlier with the necessary bonus songs and other artwork. The same artwork is now also used for this CD. Incidentally, on this CD only 1 bonus track and that is the demo version of the song The Cloaked Figure. Furthermore, the tracklist slightly modified and the intro of the song The Awakening (Interpolating The Wrath Of The Undead) now has a heading, namely: Resurrection From The Underworld. The muscles doom with texts from the sword & sorcery genre fits into the vein of bands like Saint Vitus, Celtic Frost, Cirith Ungol, Manilla Road, Black Sabbath and Manowar. Definitely a debut album which still stood at may be. If you have not then you are sure to strike because it belongs to the best work of The Gates Of Slumber.
