|2007-12-31 : The Gates of Slumber to re-issue 'The Awakening'|
The Gates of Slumber and Emissary Records are proud to announce the partnership in which TGoS's debut album 'The Awakening' will finally be re-issued! Look for 'The Awakening' due out in the spring of 2008. 'The Awakening', which was originally released in February 2004 on Belgium's now defunct Final Chapter Records has been out of print for the last two years. The album features the live favorites 'Broken on the Wheel' and 'The Jury'. This new version is a re-mastered edition that includes a bonus track ('The Cloaked Figure') which was recorded during the original studio session, totally new cover artwork done by Ken Kelly (Kiss, Rainbow, Manowar and also TGoS's second album 'Suffer No Guilt'). It will also come with a DVD featuring live footage taken from Doom Shall Rise III, London, and other hot spots around the globe featuring the line-up from that album.
