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

By Adrian

This is a re-release the band’s debut album previously released by an obscure label, Final Chapter Records, back in 2004. Doom Metal is the name of the game here and more precisely traditional Doom Metal a la Black Sabbath. What I like about it is the fact that they keep the rhythms quite diversified (well, as much as this genre allows) so this is definitely not a monotonous release, but I would recommend it to die-hard Doomsters only, I don’t think it has the force/ability to attrack other listeners. The sound is pretty good and rough also, the compositions are ok but without any spectacular elements, the vocals are Ozzy-like but less catchy and versatile, in the end only the guitar solos stand out from the rest, I would have loved them to be everywhere on this album, from start to finish.
