THE GATES OF SLUMBER is a Doom Metal band hailing from Indiana. The band has been playing their style of Doom since 1998. Their music is old school Doom Metal with some Sludge & Death Metal influences through out. They have a very old school style of Doom Metal that they play. This is a reissue of the bands same release back in 2004 originally put out by FINAL CHAPTER RECORDS. There are a lot of thick slow grooved out arrangements that constantly bring BLACK SABBATH to mind along with some early CROWBAR. Every Metal fan out there, especially Doom Metal fans, love BLACK SABBATH and their gonna love THE GATES OF SLUMBER too. The music tends to be a little slower and more dragging then BLACK SABBATH at times. The music reminds more of the bands SLEEP mixed with CLAMFIGHT in the faster parts. I loved the twists and turns that the music takes along the way with you never knowing where it’s going next. The vocals of Karl Simon are done in a mid ranged, mellow drawn out Sludge style. This is where I hear more of the CROWBAR type influences with a 70’s Stoner Metal vibe. I am very picky when it comes to my Doom / Sludge / Stoner Metal bands and THE GATES OF SLUMBER are right at the top of my list of favorite bands of this style. Check them out, cause your gonna find yourself grooving out to them, even if your not into this style of music!
