Description

2009, Indianapolis, Indiana's The Gates Of Slumber concoct as a trio quite the potent cocktail of doom, classic hard rock and a myriad of melodic British metal of the late 70's/early 80's variety on their fourth full length, Hymns of Blood and Thunder. Much like Grand Magus in Sweden, The Gates O Slumber nicely blend the past and present into a great style that should capture a wide following. Recording the album in full analog illustrates the three-piece commitment to delivering music without studio chicanery or hyped-up, trigger-happy sampling. You'll feel Jason McCash's thick bottom end bass thumping your chest in "Death Dealer," and stir with the slow crawling guitar riffs from vocalist Karl Simon on "Beneath the Eyes of Mars" as if you are taking in a long lost Candlemass offering from their Nightfall masterpiece.
