Heavy Artillery Signs The Seven Gates

Marching into the new year with guns blazing, Heavy Artillery is pleased to announce the addition of French death metal masters THE SEVEN GATES to its roster of exclusive artists. Following the release of two critically acclaimed demos, The Seven Gates prepare to unleash their debut album Angel of Suffering in the United States on May 12th and in Europe on June 2nd 2009.

Born from the ashes of revered French underground metal acts Daemonium, Akhenaton and late 80’s French death metal pioneers Mutilated, The Seven Gates began their assault in 2006 with the release of their “All is In All” demo. In 2007 the band followed up with a self-released EP entitled Ghenna’s Sword, gaining The Seven Gates praise from the European metal press and earning them a spot on several “Best of 2007″ lists in many of the Europe’s leading metal publications. That same year, the bands’ first tour evoked frenzied interest from fans and further praise from the press, rousing the attention of New York’s Heavy Artillery Records who quickly offered the band a place on their roster.

Mastered by renown French engineer Jean-Pierre Bouquet, Angel of Suffering delivers 10 tracks of old-school death metal with an endless supply of hooks, masterful musicianship and a sufficient dose of pure fucking evil, sure to please fans of early Deicide, Morbid Angel and Entombed.
