The band — Aaron Rieseberg (YOB), Lennart Bossu (Oathbreaker, Amenra), Wim Coppers (Oathbreaker, Wiegedood), and Levy Seynaeve (Amenra, Wiegedood) — is an international group of critically acclaimed musicians spawned by a shared interest and sincere admiration for a bygone era of classic death metal. This bonding experience resulted in Living Gate’s deathly metal. The band’s ethos is wholly defined by the sounds of the underground: purposefully devoid of over-polished, meticulously edited music, and eschewing athletic, sterile musicianship in favor of break-neck riffs.
Grave Digger: Guest DJ Special Premieres Friday 6/19 at 3:00pm EST / 12:00pm PST –
With metal anthems like “Heavy Metal Breakdown,” Grave Digger stand among the most influential and pioneering bands of the German heavy metal scene since the early ’80s. 2020 ushers in the 40th anniversary of these Teutonic metal masters! The ethos of the band has not changed, and yet Grave Digger sounds modern and timeless like never before. On their 20th studio album, Fields Of Blood (Napalm Records) the band continues their epic Highlands story, a trip into the vastness of Scotland on a journey through explosive sound landscapes. Join frontman Chris Boltendahl next Friday for a guest DJ special on GIMME!
