"RAW SATANIC THRASH DEATH ROCK" band " The G.A.T.E.S. ", side project of Church Of Misery bassist Tatsu & previous singer Yoshiaki Negishi. THE G.A.T.E.S. was formed summer of 2002, to play the music inspired by Motorhead & Tank. Soon they got drummer Fukawa (Sonic Flower, ex Bleed For Pain, ex. Desperate Corruption), and guitarist Futatsugi (Life, ex-Antiauthorize). His metalic guitar play was led the band to more hardcore direction like Discharge.
They release only a LP "Total High Society Satanic Rocks" split with Metal Skull in 2003, it sold out in 2 weeks. After the LP release, followed by extremely hard to find demo tape, only handful copies were sold in very limited store. They did first & last gig in spring 2003. After the gig,"The G.A.T.E.S." was disbanded.
