“Epic, Majestic and Bizarre… One of the best newcomers in years” (Deaf Forever-DE)
“Mausoleum Gate are destined to be the next hot ticket item when it comes to vintage-sounding heavy metal” (Heavy Metal Time Machine)
“If you’re looking for something truly different that will have you hooked on the first spin, Mausoleum Gate is a must hear” 9/10 (Apoch’s Metal Review)
“Full of that classic late 70’s/early 80’s heavy metal sound with doom tendencies and soaring vocals. They’re going to be huge if they can keep this up” (The Blog of Doom)
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”
as mid-summer is approaching, is time for a vacation for part of the Cruz Del Sur Music team, including me.
While we are working hard to deliver the forthcoming releases of MAUSOLEUM GATE, CONVENT GUILT and APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE in time, shipments from our online-store will be suspended until August 20th.
BUT, and there is a BIIIIG “BUT” here, we have a great sale-off campaign going on!
We have decided to extend the successful T-SHIRT SALE OFF CAMPAIGN (ending August 31st) to dozens of other products to be found now at the incredible price of 1,00€ / 3,00€ / 5,00€ !!!
You are strongly invited to visit Cruz Del Sur Music store and take advantage of this offer! Most of the releases are “last copies”, so first come, first serve!
I also would like to remind you we have still available a very LIMITED quantity of the STEEL PROPHET’s album “Omniscient”, DIGIBOOK version, released July 4th.
We only have 83 copies left of the original 1000 pressed, if you’d like to get a copy, I think this is the best moment to order before it’s too late.
Have a great summer in METAL!
