As an ex-Hoosier, it’s always nice to highlight bands who are thriving in Indiana. The colossal crew Gates of Slumber are one of those bands dedicated to old school metal that is only concerned with riffs the size of whale bones.
Below is “Coven of Cain,” the first eruption from forthcoming album The Wretch, slated for a May 10th release on Rise Above Records. It’s rocking, muscular doom that will put visions of bloodied warriors fighting to the death in your head. And we can’t not mention the howling solo that’s thick as an imperial stout.
Press play and whip your hair.[audio:http://www.decibelmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/06-Coven-of-Cain.mp3|titles=06 Coven of Cain]
