Gatekeeper @Charslanding
Fri, Apr 20th, 8-10pm, Concert  Gatekeeper  80s Metal Tribute + Originals  Album Release Tour

The style of music is 80's heavy metal, similar to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Van Halen

Originally formed in 2009 as a solo project by guitarist Geoff Blackwell,  GATEKEEPER  has assembled an impressive array of EPs and splits, including an appearance on Metal Blades Metal Massacre XIV where they contributed the song Bell Of Tarantia.  

Recorded over the span of six months at Harbourside Studios in Vancouver, Canada,  East Of Sun  was produced by Mike Rogerson, whose previous credits include ANNIHILATOR, AGGRESSION, 88 MILE TRIP and LOVERBOY.

The East Of Sun title is a shortened version of a book of Scandinavian folk tales that parallels the content on the record where each song stands on its own. The albums cover art was created by Duncan Storr, who has previously worked with SKYCLAD, RAGE and Cruz Del Surs own DARK FOREST.  East Of Sun  boasts a mixture of older, unreleased material written by Blackwell which are complemented by live staples that have recently been updated. In the words of Blackwell, East of Sun is pure heavy metal with a sword and sorcery flourish. We wear our influences on our sleeves, but we don't want to be a pale imitation of them. We try to capture the spirit of what we love without copying anyones' notes. This album has our fastest song and it's got our biggest, most epic slow-burner and many songs in between. It has melodic electric guitar playing coupled with fierce riffs, thunderous rhythms, mystical acoustic passages and, of course, a unique and varied performance from our singer, Jean-Pierre Abbaud (SPELL, BORROWED TIME).  Recommended for fans of OMEN, early MANOWAR, MANILLA ROAD, ATLANTEAN KODEX!  East of Sun  will be released on  April 27  and will be available on compact disc including 2 bonus tracks (OMENs Death Rider and SAVATAGEs Hall Of The Mountain King), on gatefold vinyl including A2 poster and digital.  www.cruzdelsurmusic.com
