We love surprises! We find the surprise that Gatecreeper served us this Wednesday all the more beautiful. The Death Metal troupe launches their new album “An Unexpected Reality” without much fanfare.
Surprisingly, we were happy about the new release. Frontman Chase Mason commented on the decision to bring the disc to the start without prior notice and single releases:
„I think the social media environment has just fried our attention spans. Trying to hold someone’s attention for two or three months with a typical album roll-out doesn’t seem feasible with everything else currently going on in the world.
It’s meant to be listened to as a whole, so we didn’t wanna break it up or release a couple songs ahead of time as ‘singles’ or whatever. We also didn’t wanna treat it like it’s our next full-length. Because it’s not.“
The piece contains a total of eight songs with a running time of just 18 minutes. The full roar. The tracklist reads as follows:
2. Sick Of Being Sober
3. Rusted Gold
4. Imposter Syndrome
6. Depraved Not Deprived
You can listen to the fun here and now. We have made the new long player of the combo available to you in full via the embed player below.
