The Wretch by The Gates of Slumber

Album

Play on Napster
Released:
Label: Rise Above Records
This is the sort of Brobdingnagian power-plod you never imagined could come from Indianapolis -- super-sized melodies set to wobbling walrus-blubber doom riffs straight out of Saint Vitus, with downcast vocal howls sometimes stumbling into La Brea Tar Pits of reverb or making way for strange Moogy electronic breaks. Gates of Slumber have no problem going the hard-charging NWOBHM route ("Coven of Cain"), but more often prefer to keep things depressive and nocturnal, as in the ten-ton suicide note "Day of Farewell" and "Iron & Fire," an even heftier album closer that lasts almost 13 minutes.
