GATECREEPER return with their highly anticipated new album Deserted. The new album, a furious mix of snarling guitars and driving, rhythmic pummeling takes death metal from its 80's Floridian roots and 90's Swedish expansion straight into the here and now. In fact, the vanguard of death metal in 2019 can be found under Arizona's searing sun. That's where GATECREEPER members-Chase Mason, guitarist Eric Wagner, bassist Sean Mears, drummer Matt Arrebollo and guitarist Nate Garrett-make their homes. Of course, the band nodded to their scorching home state with the title of their 2016 full-length debut, Sonoran Depravation. The theme continues on Deserted, which boasts songs like "Sweltering Madness," "Boiled Over" and the double-meaning title track. You can hear the results on "From The Ashes," a crushing cut primed for the European festival circuit. Over on side two, "Boiled Over" fuses classic BOLT THROWER with the pulverizing power grooves of sludge titans CROWBAR. Album closer "Absence Of Light" upholds GATECREEPER's tradition of finishing their records with a deathly doom dirge. Deserted was recorded at Homewrecker Studios in Tucson, where GATECREEPER co-produced the album with engineer Ryan Bram. CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou handled the mix at Godcity in Salem, MA, and Brad Boatright mastered the album at Audiosiege in Portland, OR. Deserted's hallucinatory cover art was created by Brad Moore (TOMB MOLD, MORPHEUS DESCENDS, and more.) GERMAN ALBUM AD TEXT: Written by Thomas Strater Ad copy: Gatecreeper geh?ren zu den vielversprechendsten Death Metal-Bands der Neuzeit. Nach diversen DIY-Ver?ffentlichungen und dem 2016er Relapse-Deb?t SONORAN DEPRAVATION kehren die US-Amerikaner Gatecreeper nun mit ihrem zweiten Album DESERTED zur?ck, das die St?rken der Truppe um Frontmann Chase Mason noch klarer betont und in mitrei?enden Death Metal-Songs resultiert. Diese werden klar vom schwedisch-s?genden Boss HM-2-Sound vorangetrieben, doch DESERTED ist kein Stockholm-Klon, sondern vereint die Grundaggression des brutal walzenden Death Metal mit erinnerungsw?rdigen Melodien, die ihre ganz eigene Magie entfalten: Gatecreeper halten nichts von k?sigen Kinderliedtonfolgen, sondern erschaffen ihre ganz eigene Atmosph?re. Diese zieht den H?rer schnell in ihren Bann, erscheint ebenso nebul?s wie omin?s, und l?sst ihn das drohende Unheil durch die immer wieder brutal loswalzende Musik und die aggressiven Vocals (hier gibt es definitiv keinen Klargesang) sp?ren. Am Ende steigen Gatecreeper in die emotionalen Niederungen des Doom-Death hinab, und statt den H?rer depressiv zur?ckzulassen, motiviert dieses schleppende Ende, das Album erneut anzuh?ren. Gatecreeper machen Death Metal wieder gef?hrlich. Gef?hrlich intensiv. Short form: Gatecreeper machen Death Metal mit DESERTED wieder gef?hrlich. Gef?hrlich intensiv, denn ihre Kombination aus brutal walzendem Death Metal und erinnerungsw?rdigen Melodien sorgt auf Basis eines pr
