Sacred Gate are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of traditional and power metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "World Without End" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine traditional and power metal together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody being thrown into t he riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding heavy metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use full chords and finger picking to add more classic metal influences to the recording.
Vocals a re all clean singing heavy/power metal vocals, while the lyrics cover dark themes with some of the songs covering satanic and religious themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Sacred Gate are a very great sounding hybrid of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Creators Of The DownFall" "The Realm Of Hell" "In The Heart Of The Iron Maiden" and "Heaven Under Siege". RECOMMENDED BUY.
