GATECREEPER Share Third Single “Stronghold” via Decibel Magazine
Death metal up-and-comers/recent Relapse signees GATECREEPER have just shared a third savage new song from their forthcoming full-length debut Sonoran Depravation (out this Oct 7). “Stronghold” has premiered at Decibel Magazine, who described the track, “in four minutes, Gatecreeper runs a breakneck pace in and out of crushing heavy moments. ”
The band’s Chase Mason added about the new song,
“Chronologically, this is the oldest song on the record. We wrote this song early on and it has been a staple in our live set ever since. The Bolt Thrower influence on this one is more than obvious. This is the sound of being run over by a tank.”
The Arizona death metal newcomers recently premiered a new music video for the song via Bloody Disgusting, which can be viewed HERE or below.
Having devastated the underground since their formation less than three years ago, GATECREEPER now unleash their first full-length, produced by Ryan Bram at Homewrecker Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) at God City Studios. Sonoran Depravation tears and chugs through 30+ minutes of crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower. The album’s lead track “Craving Flesh” can be heard now at this location or below.
Sonoran Depravation is set for an October 7th release via Relapse Records and can be pre-ordered on physical and digital formats here.
GATECREEPER recently announced a full US tour in support of Skeletonwitch and label-mates Iron Reagan, which will kick-off September 29th in Atlanta, GA. Additional support will come from Oathbreaker. The band recently added several solo dates at the beginning and end of the tour; a complete listing of dates is available below.
