GATES OF ISHTAR (SWEDEN)


A very young Luleň based GATES OF ISHTAR was created at the end of 1992. Drummer Oskar Karlsson and bassist Niclas Svenssson were previously with DECORTITION, Karlsson also citing credits with DEFLESHED. The band released a modestly titled demo tape the following year which was voted 'Best Demo Of '95' which landed them a deal with Finnish label Spinefarm Records. The debut album, June 1996's 'A Blood Red Path', although typical Death Metal, did also include a cover version of the W.A.S.P. hit 'I Wanna Be Somebody' and GATES OF ISHTAR were to subsequently tour with the likes of AT THE GATES, DARK TRANQUILITY and LUCIFERION. However, both Karlsson and Svensson departed and formed THE EVERDAWN together with ex-DECORTITION and SCHEITAN man Pierre T÷rnkvist and wound up releasing the 1997 album 'Poems - Burn The Past'.
