Art Gates Records are proud to announce Epic Celtic Death Metallers STEIGNYR as the new member in their roster.
This energetic and fierce five-pieced combo was born in 2012 in the city of Barcelona (Spain); founded by vocalist and lead guitar Jön Thorgrimr Fjonir. The original sound of the band combines the roughest Death Metal with celtic melodies and epic harmonies, all powered by a strong gutural lead voice.
In words of the band:
“It is an honor for all members of Steignyr to be part of the family of Art Gates Records, we will proudly fight as usual for our music, and hope that all our fans enjoy our next work.”
After an extensive tour through Spain and two EP’s, “The Voice from the Forest” (2013) and “The Legend” (2014), which have been successful between the spanish metal community, Steignyr have been heavily involved in the process of recording what will be their first LP, which will be released by Art Gates Records in the upcoming months.
Art Gates Records are proud to announce Stoner Rock/Metal trio GRIM COMET as the new member in the family.
This Madrid based combo was born in January 2014. GRIM COMET define themselves as a different band, their sound combines Stoner Rock influences from the 70’s, and classic Heavy Metal and Doom references.
The trio absorbs in their music and incorporates elements from the 70’s as they could be Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelinand Pink Floyd; also influences from the Big four North American Thrash Metal and NWOBHM bands like Motörhead and Venom.
Media as Terrorizer UK have classified them as follows:
¨Ever wondered what early Metallica would sound like if they´d been just a bit doomier? Well, wonder no more as Spanish trio Grim Comet have got the answer.¨
One of the strength points of Grim Comet is their live show, each concert is unique because of the dynamics of their songs, improvisation and changes in their setlist.
In words of Art Gates Records:
“It’s really exciting to be able to sign and incorporate new talents such as Grim Comet, which still retain the essence of the early Rock and Metal and do so in such an original and respectful manner.”
In words of Grim Comet:
“Signing with Art Gates Records is a step forward for us. A step that confirms our progress and opens the horizon to new opportunities.”
The debut album of Grim Comet will be released worldwide through Art Gates Records after summer.
