Gabriel and the Apocalypse release their EP Alpha Transcendence Remix Edition (2/26) with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves. Alpha Transcendence is a must for collectors. This edition of remixes is enhanced as GATA worked with Rich Stitch Thomas (Mushroomhead/Ventana), T I M E L I N E S, Sin Quirin (Ministry/3 Headed Snake), and John Wheeler. In GATA fashion, never to leave a self-expression opportunity untouched, their EP is then filled out with a beautiful acoustic version of “Bleed Me An Ocean”. The five songs chosen for Alpha Transcendence are as colorful and unique to the presence that Gabriel and the Apocalypse deliver on stage but that is who GATA is – 100% delivery in audio and visual experience. Whether you are listening to them through headphones or being rocked out while they are live on stage. GATA continues to carry the old industrial sound and gift it to the new generation of industrial rock.
“I’ve always enjoyed listening to remixes or alternate versions of previously released music. We felt like now was a good time to do something like this with the COVID situation holding the music industry in limbo. We reached out to a few friends and asked if they would like to remix a song of ours from our last full-length album release Alpha Bionic in 2019. We let everyone select a song of their choice and we really loved what we got back, and hope you will too! I would add that if this is your first time hearing Gabriel and the Apocalypse I would recommend checking out the original versions of the tunes as well as these remixes.” – Jake LaCore
Hailing from the colorful, culture-rich streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota comes the unique sound of industrial rock outfit, Gabriel and the Apocalypse. The band delivers a chaotic, head-turning performance that drips with excess aggression, sex, and the female ferocity of frontwoman, Lindy Gabriel. Years ago, Lindy breathed life into this creature-of-a-project. With a few heavy-hitting albums, national tours, and a solid new lineup, it has since developed into a fully-fledged,national performing force that carries the old Industrial torch into the new generation.
The band has spent the last few years cutting their teeth out on the road, getting the spins from doing figure-8s across the US interstate system with bands like Wednesday 13, American Head Charge, Flaw, Mushroomhead, and Lords of Acid. Within this circuit, they have become known for their intense energy on-stage as well as their dedicated professionalism with fans, venue staff, and tour mates. Gabriel and the Apocalypse are born road-dogs and live for the chance to throw down a little Jagër with fans and dance their combat boots off.
Off the stage, GATA is known for the extraordinary production of their music videos and digital media. Praised as “visually stunning,” the band boasts a number of high-quality music videos for hits like “Thrill of the Kill,” “Behind the Sun,” “Electro-Mechanical,” and their powerful rendition of the 1987 Midnight Oil No.1 single, “Beds are Burning.” With excellent replay value, these videos ooze with a visual stimulus that exhibits a different facet of the band’s unconventional creativity.
Hungry and ready, Gabriel and the Apocalypse plot and scheme their next steps. With notable national tours and charted radio hits under their belt, and an insatiable craving for progress, the band scouts the horizon for a heading. With the world put on hold in 2020, fans across the US are eager to see the band’s return and the latest developments of The Apocalypse. It will be a reckoning and GATA cannot wait to set sail again in this Musical Orgy on Wheels.

“GABRIEL AND THE APOCALYPSE are a surprise waiting to be heard. The band can take simple riffs and add atmospheric elements to make some very beautifully dark music.” – Metal-temple.com
“GATA processes a level of energy that is beyond a realm you would expect. It s more than a metal show. It s an experience which will forever change your outlook on Goth music. The lyrics are heavily influenced by PJ Harvey and a sense of Nine Inch Nails comes in full force without anyone blinking an eye. You love it and crave more from GATA.” – Unrated Magazine
