Listen to Gatecreeper and Young and in the Way Cover Pentagram and Candlemass
There are plenty of special releases coming out this Record Store Day (tomorrow), but I think this split by North Carolina’s Young and in the Way and Arizona’s Gatecreeper beats them all. Released on A389 Records, the split features the bands adding new flavor to two classic doom songs, Candlemass’ “Solitude” and Pentagram’s “All Your Sins.”
What’s especially cool is that neither of these bands play doom metal–YAITW are scary-ass black metal and Gatecreeper are old-school death metal–so not only do they get to reimagine these classic songs, they get to show just how brutal doom can be when updated and extremified. This is definitely one I’ll be looking for on the racks tomorrow.
Listen to the split below. If you want to catch Young And In The Way live–and trust me, you do–you should attend one of the dates of the second leg of their MetalSucks-sponsored tour with Taake listed here.
