BlackGates Bio:

BlackGates is a powerful new addition to the heavy metal community. The band consists of veteran metal drummer Paul Bostaph (ex-Testament, Slayer, Exodus, Forbidden), guitarist Jeremy Von Epp (The Venting Machine) and vocalist Dan Nelson (Tomorrows Ghost, ex-Anthrax). These three musicians came together as BlackGates in late 2009 and began to jam and write original music. The band's vision from day one was to be an honest band, to re-explore classic elements in metal that they all felt had been missing for a long time, and to remain as heavy and catchy as humanly possible. BlackGates wrote their first five songs during 2009 and with much enthusiasm, they entered the studio to record a three-song demo in late 2010. Now in 2012, the band is working on a body of music with the goal of signing a record deal with a good label and releasing their debut album by late summer 2012. Stay tuned....
