In shocking news, ex-The Gates of Slumber member Jason McCash has passed. No report yet on cause of death. Rough day between Jason, Leee Black Childers, John Pinette and (far less importantly) the Undertaker’s streak. WTF!??

Karl Simon posted this brief and heartbreaking statement:

My best friend died last night. There will be no reunion – no more of TGoS. It’s dead beyond dead, and I’ve lost a brother. Please be respectful or silent. It’s a small world and I’m still alive. Remember that shit.

Members of the metal community from Dave Witte to Nachtmystium to Star & Dagger to Church Of Misery expressed sorrow at the unexpected passing. Doom onward through the Gates of the next world, Jason.

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? I have found many a hidden gems and a few utter disappointments but there are few things greater in this world than gently cracking open the liner notes for the first time as the smell of ink and paper washes over you.

In the world of iTunes and Pandora, the art form that is the album cover is slowly dying. But we’re here to remind  you that in the world of heavy metal, the art of the album cover is alive and well! So each Tuesday we’ll present to you the best album covers of the week to declare what we all already know – Heavy Metal is art.

The Gates of Slumber Announce New Album and Tour Details

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 10:24 AM (PST)

Indianapolis doom lords The Gates of Slumber will unleash their hotly-anticipated fifth full-length album “The Wretch” on May 10, 2011 via Rise Above Records/Metal Blade. Featuring eight slabs of punishing metal, “The Wretch” boils doom down to its purest form, resulting in the Indianapolis trio’s finest work to date.

Recorded during the cold British winter of 2010 at London’s Orgone Studios and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Angel Witch), The Wretch sees The Gates of Slumber pushing its trademark blend of skull-crushing riffs and pounding rhythms to new heights and marks a return to the slower all-out doom tempos of the group’s early albums combined with “true doom metal” lyrical themes. From the funereal crawl of opener “Bastards Born” and the all-powerful title track, to the pounding stomp of “The Scovrge ov Drvnkenness”, the barbaric “To the Rack with Them” and the epic “Castle of the Devil”, The Wretch is a future classic featuring outstanding performances and some of the heaviest metal you will hear in 2011. The album’s deathly cover art is taken from a watercolor and gouache painting by Arik “Moonhawk” Roper (High on Fire) titled “Emerald Eclipse”.
