gearbox AGENCY og Spillestedet Stengade inviterer til en doom spækket aften hvor genforenet The Gates Of Slumber spiller københavn for første gang i 15 år, samme aften vil du ku opleve danske Altar of Oblivion og deres episke doom metal.
The Gates of Slumber:
Bands come and go all the time. All the time. They come, then go, then come again, then go again. But if you and I were to sit down and have a chat — doesn’t that sound nice? — about bands who’ve come and gone and were unlikely to return, I’d probably have put The Gates of Slumber on that list. When the Indianapolis three-piece forerunners of doom traditionalism disbanded in 2013, then yeah, okay, maybe they’d have gotten back together, but then a few months later when bassist Jason McCash passed away, and guitarist/vocalist Karl Simon moved on to form Wretch, it just didn’t seem like the kind of thing that was ever going to happen. Then Germany called.
The Gates of Slumber will play a special set for Hell Over Hammaburg 2020. Of course the idea will be to focus on the band’s history and pay homage to McCash and the legacy of what they created in their original run. The new lineup is comprised of Simon, bassist Steve Janiak (also guitarist/vocalist of Devil to Pay and Apostle of Solitude) and drummer Chuck Brown (also guitarist/vocalist in Apostle of Solitude and drummer in an earlier incarnation of The Gates of Slumber as well), and they’ve posted a clip of some rehearsal footage on Thee Facebooks in order to get word out of the revitalization of the band.
The old plans just to play one show in Hamburg got pretty soon blown away by the huge feedback from fans from all over the world on this reunion.
So you want it, you got it. Here it is: THE GATES OF SLUMBER Reunion returning to Europe for a few shows in March 2020.
Altar of Oblivion:
Altar of Oblivion were formed in 2005 and play epic Doom Metal.
The Band captures the spirit and atmosphere of this underrated genre in a compelling and credible manner.
Like skeletons walking a burning tightrope, this Danish act perfectly holds and strikes a balance between the grandiosity of classical, the down-tuned heaviness of 70s doom rock/metal, the tuneful catchiness of 80s pop music plus the pace and majestic melodies of 80s heavy metal.
