THE METAL WIRE: Upcoming GATECREEPER 7″ To Be Released

THE METAL WIRE: Upcoming GATECREEPER 7″ To Be Released

Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017

[Marc C. Pietrek with VITRIOL, INC / A DARK UNITED FRONT ( WWW.VITRIOLINC.COM ) filed the following report 09/21/2017]: Tempe/Tucson, Arizona death metal merchants, GATECREEPER (Chase Mason – vocals, Eric Wagner – guitar, Sean Mears – bass, Matthew Arrebollo – drums) have announced the following news via the METALSUCKS.NET Instagram account:

“SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT! We have a new 7″ coming out very soon. Two new GED death metal tracks to stomp your house arrest ankle monitor off to. Recorded in Tucson, AZ. Produced by Ryan Bram and @gatecreeper. Mixed by Kurt Ballou @godcitym”.

Well now, rivet-heads!! This is welcome news to me and should be to any fans of old-school Swedish death metal. And by that, I do not mean IN FLAMES!! No. This band delivers the goods in the style of early ENTOMBED, GRAVE and DISMEMBER. Pure homage to one of the most brutal, skull-splintering, enteral-extraction genres ever unleashed (pun definitely intended) on humanity. Listen to their carrion efforts, ‘Sonoran Depravation’ [2016 RELAPSE RECORDS] and their self-titled EP [2014 KING OF THE MONSTERS/PROTAGONIST MUSIC]. That evidence sticks out like a bloody claw-hammer at serial murderers trial, no fucking lie!! The band has already toured the U.S. with PALLBEARER this past Summer and is set impale audiences this Fall while supporting CANNIBAL CORPSE on their upcoming U.S. tour. Be sure to check out their band page at BANDCAMP.COM ( ), their Official Facebook band page ( ) and the links listed below. Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!

I grew up in northern California during the 1980s and have been an AVID heavy metal fan since 1982. Having experienced the Bay Area thrash metal scene first hand, thrash metal will always be at my core, However, I am also a huge fan of death metal, doom metal, traditional heavy metal, stoner rock/metal and old-school black metal. If it concerns any of those sub-genres, (to borrow a quote from Christopher Walken in 'THE KING OF NEW YORK') "I want in on it!!". Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!
