On SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17th, 2011 at 3:00pm EST our own MATTY GRANT will be interviewing MARIO LOCHERT from EMERGENCY GATE. Hailing from Germany, Mario will be discussing the band and their tours along with some special news on their newest Album on the way with Matty !!!
EMERGENCY GATE is a Modern Melodic-Death/Metalcore Band from Munich founded in 1996, but the only member remaining from the original line-up is bass-player and manager MARIO LOCHERT.
As a name, the band had picked "EMERGENCY GATE" because the free advertisement they would get from emergency gate signs everywhere. Their debut album "Nightly Ray" (2006, TNC/Universal) differs a lot from their follow-up records, which was mostly caused by the departure of songwriter, singer and guitar player FABIAN KIEBLING, who left the band in 2008.
On January 23rd, 2009 the band released the album "Rewake" (Silverwolf Productions) featuring their new singer MATTHIAS KUPKA. Also starting on that day the "Chaos Over Europe 2009" Tour took place, at which EMERGENCY GATE played together with KREATOR, CALIBAN and ELUVEITE for two months. After the summer festivals the band went right back to the studio to record the album "The Nemesis Construct", which was released on April 30th, 2010 through Twilight Records.
