Gatecreeper Releases “Desperation” Music Video

Arizona death metal Gatecreeper just premiered a new music video for the song “Desperation,” taken from forthcoming debut album “Sonoran Depravation.”

“We chose a robbery-gone-wrong scenario, focusing on the bloody aftermath and suspenseful get-away rather than the initial violenc,” elaborates the band of the clip. “The performance footage was filmed with a single camera in hopes of capturing the energy and intensity of our live shows to match the main character’s desperation as he tries to escape the horror he has created. In the end, the worlds collide leaving the viewer questioning what was real and what was a hallucination.”

New album “Sonoran Depravation” is set for an October 7th release via Relapse Records, and Gatecreeper will hit the road for a U.S. tour alongside Skeletonwitch and Iron Reagan in late September.

Atanor Releasing Self-Titled EP

Iron Bonehead Productions has set October 14th as the international release date for Atanor’s self-titled debut EP. The label comments:

“A very new entity, Atanor surprisingly exhibit the finesse and elan of veterans on Atanor. Its four stout, surging tracks bustle and burrow with an indefinable intensity, sweeping the expanse of black metal history whilst betraying no clear-cut influences.

“There is just as much muscle as there is mysticism in Atanor’s soundworld, and each of those four tracks are aptly titled to convey the magnitude of their vision: chronologically ‘Storms of Black Fire,’ ‘Fires of Death,’ ‘Mystical Rays of Darkness,’ and ‘Revelations.’ Moving from one to the next, a certain totality emerges across Atanor that instills visions much like its striking cover art – etheric yet dense, sanguine but from an unknown source, palpable but painfully out of reach.

“Altogether, it’s a bewitching spell, and one that enraptures further with each successive spin. Atanor are the ancients’ rebirth, and the cauldron has only just begun to stir…”

1. Storm of Black Fire
2. Fires of Death
3. Mystical Rays of Darkness
4. Revelations

Metal enigma Car Bomb announces third full-length album “Meta” is coming October 28th, with pre-orders online at this location.

In about one week, the work was completed and one full song was revealed: opening track, “From the Dust of This Planet.”

A rich, 3-minute slice of what lies in store, “From the Dust of This Planet” churns and shifts, expanding and contracting like a conscious and schizophrenic machine – listen in below.

“Meta” was produced by Gojira’s Joe Duplantier and Car Bomb guitarist Greg Kubacki, and mixed and mastered byJosh Wilbur (Megadeth, Lamb of God, Hatebreed, Escape the Fate). The album was tracked at Silver Cord Studio in Brooklyn, New York, the studio co-owned by Joe Duplantier and Car Bomb drummer Elliot Hoffman.
