When asked to do a CD review for the debut album of a (relatively) up-and-coming band, most people wouldn’t be too excited. However, this was not true after I heard one of the tracks off of The Seven Gates upcoming album “Angel of Suffering”. To say the least, I was absolutely blown away. The album starts off strong and doesn’t slow down one bit. From mega breakdowns to killer solos it’s entertaining from beginning to end. Unlike most metal/death-metal bands Seven Gates actually has clear lyrics that can be easily understood. None of that barking-into-the-mic-for-three-and-a-half-minutes nonsense here – they know what they’re doing. What’s impressive is that after releasing their first EP in 2007, New York based label Heavy Artillery Records instantly snatched them up and signed them – what makes this weird? Oh, you know…the fact that they’re a French band that was signed by a US label. What does that tell you? That they’re awesome, end of story. If you love heavy, hardcore, evil death metal then be sure to pick this album the second it’s released!
