Just when I thought I had the first half of January reviews planned, Gatecreeper had to come out with a surprise release that shakes up their established sound.

Any idea on actual release date?

Today.
They're on my Bandcamp watchlist, the notification came in 15 hours ago (midnight in their home town Phoenix) and according to Brooklyn Vegan and Kerrang, it's a surprise release.
"November 4, 2020" is probably the day of the first non-public upload, it seems they've simply forgotten to refresh the date.

Wow, I will start by stating the obvious; that last track doesn't fit. I was excited to hear more hardcore in their crossover mix with the first 7 tracks. I like that they're short, around 1min. I close my eyes and I'm there on the cold concrete floor dancing around like an idiot. The last track is longer than the first 7 put together and plays like an epic composition. I like it, but it shouldn't be on this EP and it starts to sound like an atmospheric black metal track near the end. Exciting and interesting nonetheless. A nice surprise.

I saw the artwork and wanted to like this but as soon as I heard the first riff I paused the music and never returned. I'm just not a fan of the Swedish death metal sound except maybe the forefathers of that specific sound.

Check out the last track, it is a completely different ball game.

That last song is great, got vibes of The Stranger by Horrendous; the rest of it I can definitely do without

Don't tell me you never needed a song called "Sick Of Being Sober" in your life.

Maybe they can be a great Death/Doom band.
