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

By Vitus-Frank

The Gates of Slumber is anything but a lazy band, given the number of releases which now has seen the light. In between there is still time to old material to polish and re-release. This release of last year is a reissue of the original released album from 2004.

The term covers not quite the polishing load, because what a huge difference with the original is this! Where the original version anyway there was a dull blanket on the production and the balance between the instruments is not feeling well was, this is now corrected by an explosive mix. You are just blown by your chair. The only downside is now that some less smooth transitions and then some poor vocals now also clearly observable. That should not spoil the fun, because this album is already clear that The Gates of Slumber on the way will go to a prominent position in the doom metal scene.

This new edition features a new cover, which fits well with the warlike covers of the later albums of the band. There is also with The Coaked Figure a bonus track added from the demo time, which fits well with the other songs. Then wait another week before their new EP Stormcrow suits. As already mentioned, it is not a lazy band.
