The last band I reviewed from Goatprayer Records (Napalm Christ) ended up releasing a 12" through A389 Records. I guess reviewing another one won't hurt. US death metallers Gatecreeper released their debut self-titled tape via Goatprayer Records in April. Since that release they've announced shows alongside Skeletonwich and Code Orange Kids, as well as announcing a 12" release via King Of The Monsters Records and Protagonist Music, which is due out in October. Things are definitely moving forward for these guys.
The tape was released on metallic silver tape and contained all four tracks repeated on both sides, limited to 100 copies. Both band and label have sole out of it.
1. Void Below
2. Force Fed
Death metal appears to be coming full circle. I know it’s always been popular in it’s truest forms, but after a brief period where it was aligned to hardcore to create the whole late 90’s early 00’s metalcore/NWOAHM thing, it seems to be back where it should be, ripping people’s heads off.
You can stream Gatecreeper's EP here:-
Also, make sure you support them by buying a download from their bandcamp page.
They had some awesome t-shirts for sale too featuring the tape's cover art, but it looks like they're out of stock too. I'll be first in line if they re-stock!
