Gatekeeper Posts New Music Video Online

Canadian true metal force Gatekeeper have debuted a music video for the title track from their new EP "Grey Maiden," set for release on February 22nd via Cruz Del Sur Music. You can check it out below.

Featuring two brand-new compositions, a cover song and a track re-recorded from their first demo, Grey Maiden picks right up where the band's acclaimed East Of Sun first full-length left off. The groundswell of support in North America and abroad - including the selling out of the vinyl and CD pressing of East Of Sun within six months - spurred Gatekeeper to satiate their ever-growing fanbase with a new release.

"We've been working harder and faster than ever since all of this started happening," says guitarist and founding member Geoff Blackwell.

Metal Blade Releasing "Metal Massacre 14"

In 1982, Metal Blade Records put out its first release: "Metal Massacre," a compilation album that included Metallica, Ratt, and many other influential artists. Now, Metal Blade will be releasing "Metal Massacre 14" on April 8th - and continuing the legacy of the first album - the CD/LP/digital formats will once again contain a sampling of contemporary heavy metal.

To pre-order your copy - and to hear clips of each track - head over to this location. Primordial's Alan Averill, who compiled the track listing, had this to say:

"'Metal Massacre' is an institution that has been dormant for far too long. It served as a vital first step for many bands who are far too numerous to mention back in the early 80s. For fans, it was often the first time engaging with many of these acts, some of whom went on to become household names-- some of course didn't, but the rough and ready underground character of 'Metal Massacre' is what set it apart from other compilations back in the day.
