German Black Metal / Doom solo project Germany Cavernous Gate has just unveiled one of the tracks from the upcoming debut full-length album, "Voices from a Fathomless Realm", which is scheduled for release on the 14th of October through Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions. Check out the lyric video for the album's seventh track, "The Artefact":


Cavernous Gate was founded in 2019 as a solo project by Sebastian "Alsvartr" Körkemeier, perhaps best known for his work in Germany Helrunar. "Voices from a Fathomless Realm" will feature the following tracklist:

  1. That Night...
  2. Old Graves Stir
  3. Through the Morass
  4. Conjuration
  5. A World in Shade
  6. Watcher of the Vast
  7. The Artefact
  8. The Turning Veil
  9. Skeleton Path

The label described Sebastian's influences and approach:

Sebastian is successfully channelling his penchant for British doom and death acts such as earliest PARADISE LOST and CATHEDRAL as well as Swedish death metal in the vein of early ENTOMBED and DISMEMBER into a dark, depressive, and massive monolith of ultra-heaviness. On "Voices from a Fathomless Realm", Sebastian's granite-grinding and abysmally low growls clearly dominate, but are on rare occasions beautifully contrasted with Jenny Kalbitz' female voice.

Lyrically "Voices from a Fathomless Realm" explores a grimdark fantasy world of twilight and its ghostly inhabitants, which Sebastian evokes in ways similar to the descriptions of paintings and by the creation of vivid dreamlike images. "Voices from a Fathomless Realm" is crafted with all the experience of a veteran metal musician and his audible love for the dark heavy style makes the difference.

Let CAVERNOUS GATE drag you into a nightmare abyss of classical doom death interpreted in a contemporary way that paints musical pictures of an unexpected beauty lurking in these unexplored depths of pain and utter sadness.
