December Update

It's been a while.

For those who haven't heard yet, I have moved to Vancouver from Edmonton. In the wake of this move, we dropped the ball with regards to shipping several orders from the past couple months in good time. All orders have hopefully arrived by now, and we're back on track with current shipments. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused, and a huge thanks for your patience.

We're pleased to announce that Arthur Rizk has completed the mixing and mastering of four new Gatekeeper songs. For those unfamiliar, Arthur was behind the board with the latest releases by Inquisition and Power Trip. He also drums for our brothers in Eternal Champion and plays guitar is the incredible Sumerlands, who put out the best demo of 2014. We're pleased and honoured to have him on board.

Details are still being ironed out, but we hope to have our split with Eternal Champion released by No Remorse Records (Greece) for March 2015. Our other split with Funeral Circle is also ready to go as soon as a label gets back to us about a release. With any luck, you should be able to listen to both releases in spring of the new year.

Despite the move, I'm hard at work writing and arranging new riffs and melodies to be used in new Gatekeeper material. We've put out an EP, a live album and we'll have two new split EPs available. I think it's high time for a full length record, but we shall see how things progress. Whatever happens, it shall be pure Epic Heavy Metal, with no bullshit and no gimmicks, without a single  infinitesimal jot of remorse for the dead, broken and buried we shall leave behind us.

Until then, enjoy this little toe-tapper from our final gig in Calgary this August past.

No Regrets, No Remorse

We are pleased and proud to announce that our upcoming split EP with ETERNAL CHAMPION will be released by NO REMORSE RECORDS, based out of Greece. No Remorse has done a fantastic job with recent reissues of bands such as Omen, Millenium and way more where that came from, and we are confident that they will handle our own material brilliantly. There are many more details to announce about the release, but you'll just have to sit tight and wait.

Until then, here's the artwork for said split EP by the legendary Lionel Baker II:

See you clowns in Edmonton and Calgary for our last gigs on the 22nd and 23rd of August respectfully.

2014 update

Long time, no post.

We've been pretty quiet as of late, mainly because there's not much to report.  We've made some changes to our Bigcartel page, we've added our live tape and taken away the shirts that are no longer available, as well as adjusted pricing of our vinyl, which was pretty damn high. We still have a handful of the tapes left, but not many so act fact before you miss out. We've also got two more of the Antiquis shirts, but only in size S. Email for details.


Stay tuned for a BIG announcing regarding our upcoming release in 2014.

Last but not least, our guitarist Jeff Black will be attending Ragnarokkr Metal Apocalypse in Chicago this April, so if you're also going to be there, drop us a line and we can arrange to bring you some Gatekeeper stuff and you can save on shipping. Even if you don't want merch, drop us a line so Jeff can meet up with you for a beer and rock out to ETERNAL CHAMPION, RIOT, GRIM REAPER, ARGUS, VISIGOTH and many more.
