NEWS: Mausoleum Gate
Metal and the Might
Cruz Del Sur Music
Release: 17 June 2016
Mausoleum Gate is vintage heavy metal from Finland. They figured out how to travel back in time through music. If you have not heard them before and you are not used to hearing old heavy metal done this way, get ready for quite the head trip into the past. The band also happens to be good at what they do.
OFFICIAL: Following MAUSOLEUM GATE's 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album comes the two-track 7" vinyl release of Metal and the Might. The release contains two new songs to please all their fans and keep the flame alive. Reflecting once more the eccentricity and uniqueness of these Fins, the title track is a straight in your face metal offering. The B side is occupied for over 6 minutes by the fantastic “Demon Soul," representing the band's progressive essence.
BIO: In October 2014 the release of MAUSOLEUM GATE's self-titled full-length debut album caught the world of Heavy Metal by surprise. Out of nowhere MAUSOLEUM GATE garnered genuine, unexpected attention, considering they do not play your average kind of metal. With an unusual offering that incorporates elements of late 70s proto-metal and a genuine, breathtaking affiliation with the spirit of the NWOBHM, MAUSOLEUM GATE soon rose to the status of “cult-band," a condition that brought them to play prestigious German Keep It True festival in 2015. MAUSOLEUM GATE was formed in 2008 by Count L.F. (gt) and Wicked Ischanius (bs) and two years after recorded their debut EP Gateways For The Wicked. In the spring of 2013 the band released Obsessed By Metal 7'' and reached a deal with Cruz Del Sur Music to release their self-titled debut album in October 2014. The band has recently hired the services of new bass-player Nino Karjalainen (not playing on the 7’’ though) while Wicked Ischianus has moved to keyboards full time.
