Rose Funeral: album title, artwork, and first single now live
New album "Gates of Punishment" out in North America Sept 27
Rose Funeral have launched the first track from their forthcoming album, Gates of Punishment. Beyond the Entombed can be heard now at metalblade.com/rosefuneral. The album can also be pre-ordered at iTunes. The physical pre-order with an exclusive t-shirt will be available shortly.
Gates of Punishment is a fitting progression of the band's dark and foreboding sound. Guest vocal appearances from Kate Alexander and Steve Tucker (Morbid Angel) add to the dark atmosphere that is created throughout the album. Seven string guitars tuned to drop A, haunting melodies, insane blasts and enough groove to keep heads banging will make this one of the heaviest releases of 2011.
Vocalist/guitarist Ryan Gardner adds, "We had the greatest time recording Gates of Punishment. It is definitely a HUGE step for Rose Funeral. I can honestly say this album just crushes any release we have done. We are looking to turn heads and drop jaws with this album. Gates of Punishment is filled with intense blasts, fast paced solos, melodic harmonies, dark chords, pissed off vocals, and harsh breakdowns. This is the sound i have been searching for with Rose Funeral, and I couldn't be happier. All I can say is that with the guys I have, it will be a huge climb in sound every album from now on."
