Finnish MAUSOLEUM GATE releases today the first track off their forthcoming, self-titled debut album to be released by Cruz Del Sur Music on October 10th in Europe and October t7th in USA.
“Magic of the Gypsy Queen” can be streamed here. It is total 80s metal worship, with hypnotic riffs and dramatic, theatrical vocals. MAUSOLEUM GATE’s influences emerge quite clearly from this song. Its debut album will be particularly appreciated by any lover of late 1970s hard rock (such as early Scorpions and Uriah Heep), and also early 80s metal (principally Saxon and the weird twists of Cirith Ungol). The presence of unusual keys (Mellotron and Organ mainly) gives this album a spooky and somewhat tragic atmosphere, with long musical suites such as “Lost Beyond the Sun” and “Mausoleum Gate” that reach the highest peaks of an opera prima that will hardly pass unobserved.
MAUSOLEUM GATE’s out-of-nowhere appearance on the scene came very unexpectedly and immediately turned some heads – the band has already been invited to play at the next edition of famous German “Keep It True Festival” in April 2015 -. We are sure that their debut album will not just turn, but also behead quite a lot of others. Read more “MAUSOLEUM GATE announces artwork, tracklist and song streaming”
We are pleased to offer the first song off Vestal Claret’s upcoming release in streaming and free download!
The title track “The Cult of Vestal Claret” is one of the strongest compositions on the album. Enjoy its monolithic yet eclectic rhythmic session, the dark, precise and cutting riffs, and the charismatic, preaching voice of Phil Swanson, the Ceremonial Master of The Cult of The Vestal Claret!
The album has been recently described by UK’s Doom Metal Heaven as “the jangling melancholy of Trouble, the epic stomp of Candlemass, the creative freedom of Sabbath, add a big handful of classic 1980′s metal and off they go, exploring places where no light shines.“
We believe the description fits quite well with what you listened on this premier of “The Cult of Vestal Claret”.
Release-date: May 2nd Available in CD | LP | DIGITAL
