Living Gate is a new death metal band with some familiar faces -- Aaron Rieseberg (YOB), Lennart Bossu (Oathbreaker, Amenra), Wim Coppers (Oathbreaker, Wiegedood) and Levy Seynaeve (Amenra, Wiegedood) -- and they'll release their debut self-titled EP on June 12 via Relapse. They say:

We got to be a band through a shared love of golden era death metal and are very thrilled to have found a home in Relapse Records, a home where people clearly share that same love for the genre and have worked very hard to give the EP the care and attention it deserves! And although we’ve never played these songs together in the same room up until this point, we can’t fucking wait to shred through these songs in a live setting.

Lead single "Heaven Ablaze" is very much cut from the late '80s / early '90s-style OSDM that's been making a huge comeback lately, and it's as filthy and gruesome as you want this kind of stuff to be. Listen below.
