Gates- the prevailing wind
GATES is a undefinable musical entity emerging from the heart of modern experimental composition. Wielding abstractionsharvested 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.
Initially released by the band's own Astral Ra imprint in a long-sold-out edition of 50 cassettes, Ivory Antler is proud to present Gates' seldom-heard The Prevailing Wind as one of the bands' two inaugural vinyl releases.* A companion piece to Moths Have Eaten the Core, the album was recorded during the same sessions and is meant to serve as a further exploration of similar forms and environments.
These recordings have been carefully remastered for 180 gram vinyl by James Plotkin in a physical presentation that features new artwork by photographer A.E. Casky and Gates mastermind Bryan Bray. This edition is strictly limited to 200 hand-numbered copies worldwide. Includes folded poster and insert.
