Gatecreeper – Sonoran Depravation (Death Metal)

a3808027860_10

From the vains of the legendary death metal supremes such as Entombed and Dismember comes American band Gatecreeper with their debut full-length Sonoran Depravation. While being heavy influenced by the old school Swedish death metal sound Gatecreeper manages to keep it fresh and Sonoran Depravation is an album even Entombed would be happy to have in their discography. The album is filled with goovy headbanging material.

What makes Sonoran Depravation stick out is that every song feel different, in a good way. I can listen to this album over and over again and find new favorite tracks each time. Another good thing is they keep it short and sweet, relentless 30 minutes of death metal madness. You don’t really need more do you? Pedal to the metal, going in 120 all the way to the finish is what death metal is all about to me. One or two more songs wouldn’t hurt of course but I rather have a good 30 minutes with high quality than quantity.

This is death metal at it’s finest. Gatecreeper is a nice fresh wind in the death metal genre, yet keeping it old school and will surely bring in some new fans to the genre. A must have album.
