Gateway – Flesh Reborn

Robin van Oyen has been ruining the sleep of more than one listener with his Gateway since the middle of last decade, and he seems to have no intention of backing down. After releasing a self-titled full length in 2015, the Flemish musician has since opted to release only ep’s, of which this latest Flesh Reborn is the fourth in the series. Gateway‘s death doom leaves little room for melody and favours a certain brutality without losing an ounce of its morbid potential. It is an offer marked by great consistency and competence, also because, among the cracks caused by the impact with the ground of this monolith of sound, it is possible to grasp the intrinsic qualities of one of the most credible interpreters of the subgenre in this form more incompromissory.
