From the Metal capital of the world, Germany, comes a new traditional heavy metal band, SACRED GATE. The founding members, vocalist and guitarist of the band, started mastering their craft in MADE OF IRON, which started out as an IRON MAIDEN tribute band - and the British legends still have the biggest influence on their music. Years later they serve a perfect, timeless classic metal album, rooted in the NWOBHM tradition and flavoured with '80s US power metal. Impressive song structures, mighty riffs, galloping guitar harmonies and solos, remarkable bass lines, solid power drumming, anthemic choruses, charismatic, slightly rough but clean vocals and a great feel for melody. Nothing new? So what, if it's played with real conviction, skills and class! Fans of MAIDEN, ASKA, BLAZE, BLITZKRIEG, SAXON, DESTILLERY, THUNDERBOLT and METAL LAW - don't miss this album!
• Debut full-length album (after an EP) of this German traditional heavy metal band, whose founding members gained experience in Made Of Iron (initially Iron Maiden cover band, later on playing original music).
• Very solid and professional recording and production.
