Hot Wax



Vigilance/Retaliator split LPs are available! Band copies are severely limited so these will ONLY be available for purchase at live shows, NOT ONLINE. I know that's a pain in the ass for our North American fans but we need to be fully stocked for our big Farmageddon gig coming up in June. If we have any copies left after the festival, we might put them online.

For those who want 12" of hard black wax, head over to >>> NO REMORSE RECORDS <<< and snag yourself a copy! They are a great label and deserve the support. The records are limited to 300 copies featuring the gorgeous dual-artwork and liners notes/lyrics. Black wax only.

In other news, the live cassette Shadow Over Calgarae is OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT! I mailed out the last two copies today. Swords and Chains Records has been sold out of theirs for a while now too, so that's it! As always, the support we receive from our small (but mighty) fanbase floors us. Thank you.

In further news, >>> FARMAGEDDON FESTIVAL <<< is a rapidly-approaching dot on the horizon! We hope to see some faces both strange and familiar when we hit the stage a ~6:00PM on Sunday night. Can't wait to raise a few pints to Grim Reaper

Still no word on the upcoming split with Funeral Circle. Will report back as soon as we know something.

'Til the next,

Straight Outta Hellas


Lookin' mighty fine, soundin' even better. Gatekeeper/Eternal Champion split CDs have just arrived in our greasy mitts from No Remorse Records. We will make them available for order at some point in the weekend. Until then, sample three new studio tracks on our bandcamp page:

December Update

It's been a while.

For those who haven't heard yet, I have moved to Vancouver from Edmonton. In the wake of this move, we dropped the ball with regards to shipping several orders from the past couple months in good time. All orders have hopefully arrived by now, and we're back on track with current shipments. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused, and a huge thanks for your patience.

We're pleased to announce that Arthur Rizk has completed the mixing and mastering of four new Gatekeeper songs. For those unfamiliar, Arthur was behind the board with the latest releases by Inquisition and Power Trip. He also drums for our brothers in Eternal Champion and plays guitar is the incredible Sumerlands, who put out the best demo of 2014. We're pleased and honoured to have him on board.

Details are still being ironed out, but we hope to have our split with Eternal Champion released by No Remorse Records (Greece) for March 2015. Our other split with Funeral Circle is also ready to go as soon as a label gets back to us about a release. With any luck, you should be able to listen to both releases in spring of the new year.

Despite the move, I'm hard at work writing and arranging new riffs and melodies to be used in new Gatekeeper material. We've put out an EP, a live album and we'll have two new split EPs available. I think it's high time for a full length record, but we shall see how things progress. Whatever happens, it shall be pure Epic Heavy Metal, with no bullshit and no gimmicks, without a single  infinitesimal jot of remorse for the dead, broken and buried we shall leave behind us.

Until then, enjoy this little toe-tapper from our final gig in Calgary this August past.
