1 - MAUSOLEUM GATE - INTO A DARK DIVINITY - (CD) 
CRUZ DEL SUR


MAUSOLEUM GATEs 2014 self-titled debut album was not as much of a revelation as it was a reminder of how vintage metal should be played. Bucking virtually every modern production trend, the Finns greeted audiences with a warm analog production sound, flanked by the stargazing vocals of V-P Varpula and the classy twin guitar action of Count LaFey and Kasperi Puranen. Critical and fan acclaim soon followed, along with key festival appearances at Keep It True and Muskelrock, with many hailing MAUSOLEUM GATE as one of the most exciting new retro metal bands on the scene.Three years removed from their debut, the Finns return with the six-song "Into a Dark Divinity", which is set for a September 8 release via Cruz Del Sur Music. Capitalizing on the self-titled debuts majestic sound, MAUSOLEUM GATE harnesses the keyboard-dominated bravado of classic DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW and blends it with the proto metal visions of MANILLA ROAD and early IRON MAIDEN.With an increased emphasis on Hammond C3 organ and keyboard interplay (courtesy of bass player Wicked Ischianus), songs such as "Condemned To Darkness" and the lurking "Apophis" augment the high-wire vocals of Varpula, who has further established himself as one of the most distinctive vocalists in traditional metal. The melody-driven "Solomons Key" and NWOBHM-inspired "Horns" recall an era where actual songwriting would make or break a band. The graceful closing title track also offers up a new angle from MAUSOLEUM GATE, showcasing lush textures and atmospheric acoustic guitar work.A must-have for any and all traditional metal aficionados, "Into a Dark Divinity" proves MAUSOLEUM GATE are one of the scenes best new true metal torchbearers. Singular, alluring and able to captivate audiences of all varieties, MAUSOLEUM GATE represent a new front in authentic vintage metal. Sophomore slump be damned - MAUSOLEUM GATE are the real deal.

3 - MAUSOLEUM GATE - MAUSOLEUM GATE - (CD) 
CRUZ DEL SUR


We believe that the self-titled debut release of Finlands MAUSOLEUM GATE is destined to become a classic cult album in a very short time. Rarely in the past few years any metal scene's newcomer has been able to craft such authentically sounding, classic heavy metal music with the passion and energy that MAUSOLEUM GATE put into their debut album. Their appearance on the scene out-of-nowhere came so unexpectedly and shockingly, but immediately turned some heads, as the band has been invited to play the next edition of famous German "Keep It True Festival" in April 2015!Inspired by the late 70s / early 80s metal sound, these Finnish lads know perfectly where to hit to provoke the most positive reactions among fans of the NWOBHMs sound, die-hard aficionados of the twisting sounds of Cirith Ungol, and lovers of 70s rock greats such as the Scorpions and Uriah Heep... The presence of unusual keys (Mellotron and Organ mainly) gives this album a spooky and somewhat tragic atmosphere, with long suites such as "Lost Beyond the Sun" and "Mausoleum Gate" act as the highest peaks of an opera prima that will hardly pass unobserved.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Magic Of The Gipsy Queen 02. Demon Droid 03. Lost Beyond The Sun 04. Mercenaries Of Steel 05. There Must Be Demons 06. Mausoleum Gate

5 - MAUSOLEUM GATE - METAL AND THE MIGHT - (7") 
CRUZ DEL SUR


In October 2014 the release of MAUSOLEUM GATE self-titled debut album caught the world of Heavy Metal by surprise. Out of nowhere Mausoleum Gate were able to get such a genuine, unexpected attention, considering they do not play your average kind of metal. With an unusual offering which incorporates elements of late 70s proto-metal and a genuine, breathtaking affiliation to the spirit of the NWOBHM,MAUSOLEUM GATE has soon raised to the status of "cult-band", a condition which brought them to play prestigious German Keep It True festival in 2015."Metal and the Might" is their new release, two new songs to please all their fans and keep the flame alive. Reflecting once more the eccentricity uniqueness of these Finnish guys, the title track is a straight in your face metal offer, as was "Mercenaries of Steel" on their debut album. B side is occupied for over 6-minute by the fantastic "Demon Soul", echoing more of their progressive quintessence.Mausoleum Gate was formed in 2008 by Count L.F. (gt) and Wicked Ischanius (bs) and two years after recorded their debut EP "Gateways For The Wicked".In the spring of 2013 the band released "Obsessed By Metal" 7''and reached a deal with Cruz Del Sur Music to release their self-titled debut album in October 2014.The band has recently hired the services of new bass-player Nino Karjalainen (not playing on the 7 though) while Mr Ischianus has moved to keyboards full time.
