Scriptures of Grief is a monstrous work of improvisation and exploration. An unrelenting 30-minute slab of cavernous droning death/ doom.

Press quotes:

"Van Oyen's voice is laced with a hate so caustic it would burn skin from the viscera. Blood congeals in vessels, muscles seize with rigor mortis, and by song's end, Gateway's riffs have buried a listener in a shallow grave." -METAL INJECTION

"This is an inhumanly toxic and devastating death-doom masterpiece!" -CVLT NATION

"Gateway have made a terrifically crushing, soul-scoruing behemoth of death/doom in Scriptures." -NO CLEAN SINGING

"Gateway creates another recording that remains true to the doom/death metal style that was established on the previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes. In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from gateway and if you are a fan of doom/death metal, you should check out this album." -DOOMED TO DARKNESS ZINE

"Gateway certainly isn’t the first band this year to make you feel like you’re scrambling to escape a cavern full of blood-soaked creepy-crawlies, but Robin Van Oyen’s solo project earns extra points for being at least partially improvised." -TOILET OV HELL
