YOB, Oathbreaker, Etc. Members Unite In New Band Living Gate


Oathbreaker guitarists Lennart Bossu and Levy Seynaeve and drummer Wim Sreppoc have launched another side project together. This new undertaking has been dubbed Living Gate and finds them joined by YOB bassist Aaron Rieseberg. Their debut EP “Deathlust” will see a release this May. For now you can check out a video for the band’s eponymous track from it below. They had the following to say about their formation:

“While touring together, various members of Yob, Wiegedood, Oathbreaker and Amenra found themselves bonding over a common love of death metal bands both classic (morbid angel, suffocation, Death) and contemporary (Tomb Mold, Blood Incantation).

It is in recognition of these shared admirations as well as a mutual respect of each other’s musical chops that LIVING GATE has been founded. Purposefully devoid of over-polished, meticulously edited sounds, Living Gate puts its emphasis upon unrelenting, raw drums which are continuously blanketed by a vomit of menacing riffs and heaving guttural orations.

Make ready your earholes for the debut EP, ‘DeathLust’ out May 2020.”

If you’re unaware, Bossu, Seynaeve & Sreppoc also play together in Wiegedood. While Oathbreaker largely remain on hiatus, they have announced that they will be playing this year’s ‘ArcTanGent Festival‘ at Fernhill Farms new Bristol, UK. That festival will be held August 20th-22nd and mark Oathbreaker‘s first show in two years.
