BlackGates release final song of 3-song demo

If you don’t know BlackGates by now, you’ve surely missed out. We’ve interviewed two of the four bandmembers — Jeremy Von Epp and Dan Nelson — and now the band released the final song, called ‘Vacant,’ of their 3-song demo on their Reverbnation page.

Head over there right now or use the player below to listen to all 3 songs.

And now, make the jump for some pictures of the studio, the band recorded their demo at.


Weak Recap: We’re bringing sexy back

Another week behind us, another week of total metal kickassery. “But hey Simo, this week hasn’t been that special really…” – I hear some of you saying, and to clarify, when I say kickassery, I mean the way we’ve covered everything. Hell, we could comment on funerals or people sleeping and make it sound interesting as hell.

Kids, prepare your tissues and toilet paper, Mark and I are taking a trip down the memory lane, and it’s going to be sexy.


Interview: Jeremy Von Epp (BlackGates)

We’ve reported about BlackGates before. The band that includes Dan Nelson (Inside Hollow, Farewell To Washington, ex-Anthrax), Paul Bostaph (Testament, ex-Slayer, ex-Exodus), Uriah Duffy (ex-Whitesnake) and Jeremy Von Epp.

Sadly, we didn’t know that much about Von Epp, so it was a good idea to interview Jeremy to get to know him a bit better and introduce him to all of you.

Make the jump to read my interview with Jeremy Von Epp, guitarist of BlackGates and a swell dude.


Weak Recap: Hello, we’re metal!

We’re one of the last of a dying breed. We’re the Albert Einstein of brutality, the William Shakespear of violence, the Arnold Schwarzenegger of funny, the Michael Jackson of metal. All these comparisons are way off though… because we’re better than those guys and we’re certainly better than anyone else out there, including you!

We’re so good, we’re interviewing each other. Who needs interviews with musicians, who have been interviewed already thousands of times? No one!

So, you want to know what happened this past week in metal? Make the jump, we’ll teach you a lesson.


BlackGates release second song

I already love this band. BlackGates just released their second song/demo on Reverbnation yesterday and — just like ‘Seeds Of War’ — this song, called ‘Break,’ kills.

Don’t believe me? Listen to it below. You can also listen to ‘Seeds Of War’ while you’re at it. May aswell enjoy two great songs.
