THE GATES OF SLUMBER Reunion returning to Europe for a few shows in March 2020 with special “Awakening” set made us to do this very special Traditional Doom evening with four very unique bands. VENGEANCE AND FIRE UPON YOU SOON!

DOOM IN BLOOM and GreyZone Concerts & Promotion are stoked to present you this killer trad. doom package: LOUD, SLOW and HEAVY.

? The Gates of Slumber
Traditional Heavy Doom – Indianapolis, USA

When the Indianapolis three-piece forerunners of doom traditionalism disbanded in 2013 and a few months later when bassist Jason McCash passed away, and guitarist/vocalist Karl Simon moved on to form Wretch, it just didn’t seem like the kind of thing that was ever going to happen. Then Germany called.

The Gates of Slumber will play a special set for Hell Over Hammaburg 2020. Of course the idea will be to focus on the band’s history and pay homage to McCash and the legacy of what they created in their original run. The new lineup is comprised of Simon, bassist Steve Janiak (also guitarist/vocalist of Devil to Pay and Apostle of Solitude) and drummer Chuck Brown (also guitarist/vocalist in Apostle of Solitude and drummer in an earlier incarnation of The Gates of Slumber as well), and they’ve posted a clip of some rehearsal footage on Thee Facebooks in order to get word out of the revitalization of the band.

The old plans just to play one show in Hamburg got pretty soon blown away by the huge feedback from fans from all over the world on this reunion.THE GATES OF SLUMBER Reunion returning to Europe for a few selected shows in March 2020.

? Lord Vicar
Traditional Finnish Doom – Turku, FIN

Kimi Kärki was “christened” Peter Vicar by Sami Hynninen when they founded Reverend Bizarre. As the final nails were hammered to the coffin of the Reverend (1995 – 2007, R.I.P.),guitar player Peter Vicar asked to be crucified inverted (upside down), when he founded Lord Vicar.
So unmasked Kimi Kärki started to follow his vision of a new Doom band. He felt forced to fulfil his need to compose and play this most arcane form of metal, full of intensity, cruelty, heaviness, and force. Still firmly walking in the footsteps of Saint Vitus, Trouble, Witchfinder General, Pentagram and The Obsessed, Lord Vicar brings together a veteran international line up, also featuring unique vocalist Chritus Linderson (Python, ex-Saint Vitus, ex-Count Raven, ex-Terra Firma, ex-Goatess), bass player Rich Jones (The Consultancy) and drummer Gareth Millsted (The Pathis Clear, ex-Centurions Ghost, ex-End of Level Boss).
Lord Vicar finally feels like the natural force this band was always meant to be, bound by friendship and music alchemistry.

New Vicar LP “The Black Powder” (2019) out via Church Within Records.

? Cardinals Folly
Deranged Bastard Doom – Helsinki, FIN

BEWARE, DERANGED PAGAN SONS TAKING OVER! We are very excited to announce that traditional doom bastards Cardinals Folly from Helsinki will bang your heads with their three-bladed heavy doom sword. One of their rare shows in Germany!

New LP “Defying the Righteous Way” out in March 2020 via Rafchild Records.

? Leaden Fumes
Tentacled Psych Doom from the Deep – Basel, CH

This doomed Trio from Switzerland was born out of Phased – a cult band who were not only one of the first Swiss stoner band, but also the only Swiss band to sign to Elektrohasch. Leaden Fumes return to Germany with their new album.

“Abandon Ship” LP/CD is out in February 2020 on P.B.B.
