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

by www.crossfire-metal.de

By Joxe Schaefer

The debut of the Doomster from Indianapolis came back in 2004 with “Final Chapter Records”. In 2011 they released their last regular album “The Wretch”, then took Abyss Records in the matter, and throws out the debut again. The heartbeat intro with the clock tower heralds the fall, and you grooving to Saint Vitus moderately through the song while singing is more like the Swedish Count Raven. The quality of the nine songs, scrape the happy times at the ten minute mark, is not open to doubt. The trio named after a song by Cianide delivered, then from an official album, which we now have to re-acquire. Three small differences to the first edition are here. The intro and the first song are now separated, there’s “The Cloaked Figure” at the end of a bonus track, and the new version uses a different cover. None other than Ken Kelly, who already for Kiss, Manowar and Rainbow handed in his works, stands responsible for the pictured Warrior. Pretty round thing, because not only the beat-Hard’ler.
