GATES is a undefinable musical entity emerging from the heart of modern experimental composition. Wielding abstractions harvested from the idioms of doom, drone and black metal. Embedding them within an amalgamation of avant-garde approaches to prog rock, noise and ambience. Manifesting with cinematic psychedelic experimentation.

Written by: Sage Artist: Gates Title: Moths have Eaten the Core Label: Ivory Antler Cat. IA04 Format: Pro CD-R. Genre: Dark Ambient, Drone. It’s amazing that Gates ever became a group of artists at all considering the introverted nature of the works found on Moths have Eaten the Core as well as the spiritual intensity delivered behind the album in theme. Bray delivers a cathartic and deeply visceral ritual through the aural display of deep, minimal synth drones that, at least for Outer Labyrinth, emanate as muddy yet extremely bold tones underneath improvised, sometimes psychedelic, sometimes ethereal guitar drifting. Inner Labyrinth takes you further down the rabbit hole, building in true resonant fashion; walls shake from.

Emerging from the depths of winter, a stark journey through the unconscious passageways of the mind, Bryan W Bray's project Gates began as a cathartic ritual that would be enacted after his band Orca’s performances and rehearsals. Mining a sound world that draws on the latent abstraction within doom, the hallucinatory drift of ambient, but also the unremitting sonic bleakness of black metal. A contrast to the vaguely more extrovert progressive metal of Orca, Gates eventually grew from being an exploratory side project to a primary musical outlet
