Deathsters stream lead track
Arizona death metal newcomers GATECREEPER have announced their savage debut album Sonoran Depravation. 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.
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 and a complete listing of dates is available below.
