THE GATES OF SLUMBER
Indianapolis doom metal trio THE GATES OF SLUMBER formed in the late 1990’s with the goal of creating a band whose sound delivered an updated take on the member’s long list of favorite heavy metal greats. Weaned on Black Sabbath, St. Vitus, the melodic might of Iron Maiden and a host of classic bands from Thin Lizzy to Rainbow to Mercyful Fate, THE GATES OF SLUMBER draw deep from heavy metal’s most powerful blood and deliver doom in its purest form.
Featuring original USURPER guitarist/songwriter/founder Rick Scythe, who helped forge the Chicago Metal scene more than 20 years ago. This band takes up where Usurper left off, with total headbanging, fist-banging metal anthems. Total old-school 80′s denim and leather death/thrash/black metal from one of the pioneers of the Chicago Metal scene. Usurper has released 7 albums on labels such as Earache (UK), RIP (USA), Necropolis (USA) and Head Not Found (Norway) and toured 17 countries throughout the world including a headlining main stage gig at Oslo Norway’s prestigious INFERNO FEST before disbanding in 2007. Usurper main-man Rick Scythe will unleash his new band Scythe’s debut album, BEWARE THE SCYTHE live at Reggies. Make no bones about it, except no substitutes, hear new songs and classic Usurper material when Scythe hits the stage.
Punk/Metal band from Cleveland, OH For those of you into the truly barbaric, vomit-stained sounds of Motörhead, Venom, Discharge, Hellhammer, early D.R.I., Carnivore!!!
Thrash/Death metal band from Kansas City, USA. Both the guitarist (Chuck Keller) and the drummer (Mike Miller) were previously members of the legendary black/death metal band ORDER FROM CHAOS.
Stone Magnum from Michigan City, Indiana is an entity of sorrow, misery and woe. With a style rooted in hook laden doom metal, Stone Magnum explores the dark forces controlling man’s submissive existence. With a wide list of influences, Stone Magnum presents a broad offering of traditional, epic, depressive, and darkened doom metal with hints of traditional heavy metal stylings.
