Gatecreeper’s New Album and Single “The Black Curtain”

Gatecreeper have announced their new album, Dark Superstition, and shared the first single “The Black Curtain” ahead of the LP’s May 17th release date.

The Arizona band has made its name with grinding death metal up to this point, but “The Black Curtain” points in a more accessible, melodic direction.

The low-end remains thick and goopy, but the lean chord progression and driving groove of the track isn’t far removed from Lamb of God or Alice in Chains’ more alt-metal moments. The guttural vocals of Chase H. Mason, however, remain steeped in the recognizable aesthetics of death metal.

“It’s about being trapped between living and dying,” Mason said of the track via a press release. “A soul trapped in purgatory begging to be brought back by a supernatural force.”

Regarding the rest of the album, Mason added: “Many of the songs incorporate supernatural ideas with my own experiences. But the title itself is a reference to the Superstition Mountains in our home state of Arizona. It’s a beautiful mountain range surrounded by tragedy and legends of hidden fortune.”
