The new Gatecreeper album is really good.

The first seven tracks blast by at about a minute each, a continuous assault that harkens back to old-school death metal.

Then you hit the 11-minute closing track “Emptiness”, and it’s like entering another dimension. It’s epic and textured, almost proggy in parts.

I’ve been in a death/black metal mood all week1, and this record really tops it off. I realize the genre isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if your tastes do swing in that direction, I highly recommend checking this one out.
