Gatecreeper are from Arizona and love the same brand of death metal I love.

Bolt Thrower, Entombed and Dismember seem to be the most obvious influences. Cannibal Corpse, Death and Obituary are also invited to the party that is Gatecreeper.

Check this sick video for the track "Desperation":

GATECREEPER is on the road with a tremendous lineup that also includes Skeletonwitch, Iron Reagan and Oathbreaker:

Plain and simple, I love this brand of death metal. 

I love that Dismember, Entombed guitar sound. 

I love that hoarse bellowing vocal. 

gerund or present participle: bellowing
  1. (of a person or animal) emit a deep loud roar, typically in pain or anger.
    "he bellowed in agony"
    • shout something with a deep loud roar.
      "the watchers were bellowing encouragement"
    • sing (a song) loudly and tunelessly.
      "he got thrown out of bars for bellowing Portuguese folk songs"

I LOVE when Gatecreeper kick into a groove, it makes me want to join the circle pit no matter what I am doing... Hell, I wanted to jump out of my car at a stop light the other day and start a circle pit around my car. 

  1. relating to, denoting, or characteristic of a biogeographical region including desert areas of the southwestern US and central Mexico.

See you in the pit!
