SACRED GATE joins our roster.
Last year we were contacted by SACRED GATE, a traditional Heavy Metal band from Germany, formed in 2008. The skills they presented on the album, which they were shopping around, were so impressive that we did not have to think twice.
Not surprisingly, they are not really newcomers. Last year they self-released an EP, "Creators Of The Downfall", which gained very positive reviews, but most of all, the band's founding members, guitarist and composer Nicko Nikolaidis and vocalist Jim Over (both of Greek origin), have mastered their craft in other bands prior to SACRED GATE. They both played together in MADE OF IRON, which was originally an IRON MAIDEN cover band before starting to write their own songs and releasing a couple of demos, EP and a full-length. And the British giants still have the biggest influence on SACRED GATE's music, which is rooted in NWOBHM, but also has some '80s US Power Metal elements. We are happy to welcome to our family such a talented band that proves that classic Metal never rusts!
