I've had the luck to follow this band right from the beginning when they were still doing demos. With much dedicated work, they finally released their debut album Summoning in 2003, creating a great album of powerful traditional metal with occasional thrash riffs, angry vocals that have often been compared to Nevermore's Warrel Dane, complex arrangements, and sick drumming.

Fast forward three years and here is Twelfth Gate's second album, titled Threshold of Revelation. This album also sees second guitarist Jim Stopper from Oppressor adding his touch to the songs, rendering them fuller and all the more powerful. Threshold of Revelation is a much darker, heavier and technical album than its predecessor. Similarities to Nevermore are still there, but with a more refined sound this time around. Vocalist Scott Huffman's enunciation still recalls Warrel Dane on tracks like "Critical Elements" and "Delving Too Deep". Both songs boast loads of double bass drumming, thunderous rhythm guitar, highly melodic lead guitar work, and a dark, brooding tone. The last song "Come Alive" also features a great acoustic guitar intro with just Huffman's voice before the band delves into a thrashy piece, utilising rumbling bass and great harmonies, all wrapped with a powerful guitar interplay. "Human Swine" and the first track "Loyal" are both the most complex numbers, with distinct Control Denied guitar acrobatics, sick melodic twists, unexpected rhythm variations, and Tim Aymar-like screams. Actually I've always considered Scott Huffman to be a perfect mix of Tim Aymar and Warrel Dane with a slightly lower range. That said, if the song calls for it, Huffman will rip it up, belting out some of the most impressive falsettos you'll hear.

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community! If you discover something you like on my past review list, click "yes" on where it says: "was this review helpful?"!

The Nevermore comparisons I've been reading about this particular band are unfair. These guys are way better than Nevermore. The vocalist has a strong set of pipes, which he uses, to his maximum extent, serving as a solid conduit for the music to flow on. The music does have a lot of power, something many power metal bands don't know how to incorporate (i.e. Hammerfall, Blind Guardian and legion others). Sure, the album is a bit progressive on some areas, but for the most parts these are actual compositions with a heavy emphasis on actual songwriting-as simple as that. Therefore, each song achieves memorably a level of completeness. Great vocals, awesome riffing, many neck-breaking passages, and a perfect representation of heavy metal is what you'll find here. 3.5/5
