Info/Bio:

GATECREEPER was formed in September of 2013 with members originating from both Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona. Bonded together over a mutual love of old-school death metal, GATECREEPER set out to write classic yet memorable songs for a new generation. The band recorded and released a self-titled 4 song EP digitally in April of 2014 which quickly garnered the attention of Pitchfork, CVLT Nation, and other notable music blogs. A music video for the song “Force Fed” was premiered on Invisible Oranges and the EP was soon released on 12” vinyl by King Of The Monsters and Protagonist Music in October of 2014. This short but satisfying release gained the band a large following of fans from both the hardcore and metal communities.

2015 saw GATECREEPER embark on their first tour of the West Coast, soon followed by the release of a split 7” with fellow Arizonans Take Over And Destroy. The song “Poisoned Mind” continued to propel GATECREEPER, who Noisey called the “one of the genre’s fresher, younger voices,” further into the spotlight. The band spent the second half of 2015 touring the East Coast, cultivating their rapidly growing local and national following, and recording more new material to be released on several different split releases throughout early 2016.

After returning from another West Coast tour, this time with Colorado’s Of Feather and Bone, GATECREEPER returned to Homewrecker Studios to record their debut full-length album with Ryan Bram in Tucson, Arizona. Sonoran Depravation was mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Sleep, Magrudergrind), both of whom are known for their unparalleled work in the extreme metal world. The resulting record, a 9-song offering of monstrous death metal, is without a doubt GATECREEPER’s finest work yet.

GATECREEPER are: Sean Mears – Bass / Metal Matt – Drums / Eric Wagner – Guitars / Chase H. Mason – Vocals / Nate Garrett – Guitars
