THE GATES OF SLUMBER's Debut Album To Be Reissued

THE GATES OF SLUMBER's debut album, "The Awakening", will finally be reissued in the spring via Emissary Records. The LP, which was originally released in February 2004 on Belgium's now-defunct Final Chapter Records, has been out of print for the last two years. The album features the live favorites "Broken on the Wheel" and "The Jury".

This new version is a remastered edition that includes a bonus track ("The Cloaked Figure"), which was recorded during the original studio session, a totally new cover done by Ken Kelly (KISS, RAINBOW, MANOWAR and also THE GATES OF SLUMBER's second album, "Suffer No Guilt"). It will also come with a DVD featuring live footage taken from Doom Shall Rise III, London and other hotspots around the globe featuring the line up from that album.

THE GATES OF SLUMBER's third album, "Conqueror", will be released in May via I Hate in Europe and Profound Lore in North America. The CD is being helmed by Sanford Parker, who has previously worked with BIBLE OF THE DEVIL, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR and NACHMYSTIUM, among others.
