Thanks to my heavy metal son Eric for turning me on to this band and tune last night. Spend five minutes with this!
“Seeds Of War”, the first demo track from BLACKGATES — the new band featuring former ANTHRAX singer Dan Nelson, drummer Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, ex-EXODUS, SLAYER, FORBIDDEN), guitarist Jeremy Epp (THE VENTING MACHINE) and bassist Uriah Duffy (WHITESNAKE) — can be streamed using the ReverbNation TuneWidget below. Dan previously stated about BLACKGATES’s musical direction, “It’s thrashy and heavy, so it will appeal to ANTHRAX and TESTAMENT fans. But has the groove and brutality of PANTERA, and is also very melodic. The guitarist is a kid from the Bay Area named Jeremy Epp, who’s an unknown, but sensational. People are gonna love him.”
BLACKGATES recently finished mastering its first demo, which the band recorded in the San Francisco Bay Area with producer Tim Narducci (SYSTEMATIC, SPIRALARMS).
BLACKGATES is:
* Dan Nelson (ANTHRAX): Vocals/guitar
* Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, FORBIDDEN, EXODUS): Drums
* Uriah Duffy (WHITESNAKE): Bass
* Jeremy Von Epp (THE VENTING MACHINE): Guitar/vocals
Nelson earlier this year joined forces with Dan “Shaggy” Hoffman and Joe Post in a brand new Levittown, New York-based “rock / blues / punk / metal / hardcore / fun” band called FAREWELL TO WASHINGTON. According to Nelson, the group entered “our junkie little studio a.k.a. ‘Potato Junction'” last month to record its first demo.
When asked in an interview with Dose Of Metal what fans can expect from FAREWELL TO WASHINGTON, Nelson said, “People should expect very little from us, as we expect even less from each other.”
Regarding his split with ANTHRAX in July 2009, Nelson told The Metal Den, “I never live my life with any regrets and never look back and wish I did something different. I chose instead to look forward to the future. We did some great things in the time we wrote and performed together, and I am very proud of that.”

According to the Belfast Telegraph, former THIN LIZZY guitarist, noted
session player, and blues rock icon Gary Moore left an estate worth over
£2 million (approximately $3.23 million).
Records released last week show
that Moore’s estate was worth £2.077 million (approximately $3.36 million) but
this was reduced after liabilities to a net figure of £1.021 million
(approximately $1.65 million).
According to Ken Sweeney of the Irish Independent, Gary Moore was laid to rest on
February 23 in a small village graveyard outside Brighton,
England.
Moore‘s family decided to hold his funeral not in
Belfast, Ireland, where he was born, but near where he had made his home in the
past 15 years and where his children live.
Lily, one of the guitarist’s four children, spoke of her father as “a man with rather colorful shirts, who possessed a childlike quality and was an inspiration to many and the kind of person you could never forget.”
