Heaven's Gate - High Riser

Sweet Bulbs' sudden arrival two years ago was as mysterious as their departure. Some of them re-grouped as Heaven's Gate, whose violent feedback, shredded riffs and enigmatic melodies bear all the hallmarks of Sweet Bulbs' deadly charm.

You might already know Salome - it did the download round in 2011, announcing Heaven's Gate arrival - in which case you'll want more. You're in luck: seven(!) songs fight for space on the High Riser 7". Any three of them would make a great ep.

The time lapse between Salome and the High Riser ep, of which Salome is one-seventh, suggests that Heaven's Gate might vanish as quickly and frustratingly as Sweet Bulbs. Still, what a legacy they'd leave.
