IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS sets August 1st as the international release date for CEMETERY FOG‘s Towards the Gates. Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Shadows From the Cemetery tape, CEMETERY FOG strike while the iron’s hot with a brand-new 12″ MLP, Towards the Gates. While the CEMETERY FOG on said cassette was a rumbling ‘n’ rough-hewn one, the Finnish duo have made a startling progression on Towards the Gates, refining that doomed-out Metal of Death into one that’s more mature, majestic, and absolutely mournful. In many ways, the CEMETERY FOG of now bear more than a passing resemblance to the early ’90s school of UK doom-death – crushing yet emotive, melodic yet sorrowful, deathly yet graceful – but with an eerie, mystical touch all their own. The band may still be young, but their confidence and ambition are wholly evident across the five tracks of Towards the Gates – and they’re just getting started.
