The Gates of Slumber release 'Stormcrow' EP
Another free download courtesy Scion A/V
While I was away covering 70,000 Tons of Metal, Indiana doom kings The Gates of Slumber released the Stormcrow EP, which has been released as a free download by, you guessed it, Scion A/V. Consisting of five songs recorded with producer Sanford Parker, it’s doom metal like only Gates can do, dirge-like tunes that creep at a Sabbath-style gait, singer Karl Simon howling away mournfully. It’s been nearly two years since their excellent album The Wretch came out, so this is a very welcome release from the trio, made all the better by the fact that it’s free.
In addition, the band has put out a great looking performance video for “Death March”, which you can watch below.
