Goliath - The Gate
The Gate

Okay, fine. I’ve put off reviewing this CD for long enough. Listen, The Gate is a collection of metal that’s sort of trying to sound like Rose and Danzig- heavy, plod-along doomy, done by Mick Rowe, the guy who changes music styles like one changes underwear. The lyrics are strong and Christ-centric, touching on the darker themes of life from a Biblical perspective. You know, like Randy Rose. “Welcome To My Nightmare” is not, I repeat, not a remake of the Alice Cooper classic. Really, nothing earth-shaking, but doable metal…better than his turn as a so-called “Gothic artist”…
