Indianapolis doom metal trio THE GATES OF SLUMBER formed in the late 1990’s with the goal of creating a band whose sound delivered an updated take on the member’s long list of favorite heavy metal greats. Weaned on Black Sabbath, St. Vitus, the melodic might of Iron Maiden and a host of classic bands from Thin Lizzy to Rainbow to Mercyful Fate, THE GATES OF SLUMBER draw deep from heavy metal's most powerful blood and deliver doom in its purest form.

After honing its sound and writing / releasing several demos, THE GATES OF SLUMBER emerged with its debut, 2004’s The Awakening. The album quickly garnered acclaim within underground circles and was hailed as “a breath of fresh air within the doom / true metal underground.” The recording showed the band harnessing its influences and creating a solid foundation for its bold sound. « hide
