Between genius and madness, this world and the next, there’s nothing but the faintest flicker of a pulse and the cemetery gates ? as these twisted metal icons know all too well. Purveyors of the sickest, slickest sounds on the planet, they’ve more demons between them than Dante’s Inferno. Whatever their deadly sin, these prodigiously talented hellraisers have all come dangerously close to the edge. Tragically, not all of them have returned.

Uncovering the crazed antics of each, Cemetery Gates is the ultimate tribute to the stoical survivors who dragged themselves back from the abyss ? and the sainted icons who weren’t so lucky.
