"Black Sabbath and Devil Driver join forces and form their own version of Pantera, set a course due north into the land of Metal, strap themselves in and enjoy some cold beers listening to Slipknot and Lamb of God CD's."

Biography

Power, Experience, Professionalism, Originality, and the ever inportant element of Anger, five words that truly describe what the metal world will soon come to know as, South Gate.
South Gate is an original four piece metal band that hails from Detroit, Mi. The band has to date written fourteen songs, four of which have been released on a
self-recorded and produced EP entitled "Psychological Warfare". The members of SG, have combined, over fifty years of musical experience, they have together been involved in well known
local acts such as Twist of Fate, Tread and Autumn Reign among others, along with countless hours of studio work, which will produce a debut full length release in the
spring of 2006.
SG has caught the attention of legendary Detroit rock station, 101.1 WRIF and it's very popular program, Midnight Metal (wrif.com/midnightmetal), getting regular airplay beginning in August of 2004. SG has become one of the hardest working, fastest growing metal bands in the Detroit area, not so much in the quantity of their live shows, but in their dedication to promoting their music and getting their name out to
the public ( to date SG has moved close to 3000 copies of the "PW" EP ). To this point the band is focusing on quality shows versus quantity, having opened for Genitorturers twice, WASP, Soil, Six Feet Under, Metal Church, Hatebreed, BLS and most recently Anthrax. The band is obviously metal, but their music is actually hard to categorize. This is a band that has written songs that will not only please the most hard-core of fans (Slayer, Hatebreed), but envelop a much broader, more mainstream, "radio friendly" crowd as
well (Mudvayne, Stone Sour). Which brings us to our final point, the future. South Gate has big plans for the coming months and years, they are currently finishing their debut release along with a new line of merchandise and are setting up a barrage of live shows for the 2nd half of 2006.
This is some very serious material that must... and will be heard...Thank you

Let Go

Written By: South Gate

Let Go

How many times have you felt the vibe that someone else has been
left behind...Feel like a loner how does he own her...Can't get away
from the things you won't regret...Thought about blood on your hands
you won't forget...Thoughts everlasting you can commit to the vice
that you admit...Never you worry never ask why...Visions are sacred
even when you've left behind...A body naked your mark left on the inner
right thigh...Why oh why oh why do I have these visions of a person so
lost inside...

Just let me go...Just walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...

Crazy girl that won't take meds and can't get away from her hospital bed...
Light breaks through now what do you do...Is she cured or is she doomed...
Can't let go of the thoughts you've proved...I'm concious of the things they do...
I know just what they think of you...Can't go through any kind of pain today
cannot avoid the day...I have to function at any rate...I live on fate and can't
ignore the things I hate I'm so stiff inside there isn't any place to hide...
Why oh why oh why am I a person so lost inside...

Just let me go...Just walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...
Just let it go...let it go...Walk away...

I got back you were sleeping...You didn't know of the secret I was keeping...
I found a part of myself I thought was dead...Remembering pleas of things
that were said...I was a heroe...And I was a villain...I was a voice...
Inside a lunch box vision...Inside a lunchbox vision...Inside a lunchbox vision...
Inside a lunchbox vision...

How much does retribution cost...How much does retributuion cost...
How much does retribution cost...How much time have I already lost...

Soon they will be coming for me...Soon they will be coming for me...
For what I have already done...For what I have already done...

Dying Inside

Written By: South Gate

Dying Inside

I used to be something now I am nothing throwing myself
around in the dark...
I'm dying inside I'm hard on the surface
and cold in between...
You'll rip out my heart but don't leave a mark...
I'm dying inside...

I once had a rhyme and I had a reason loving myself
was how I once lived...
I'm rotting inside confused on the surface
and lost in between...
Now just don't you start you'll tear out my heart...
I'm dead inside...

Now I'm a danger to myself...
-Words that I regret...
I raise my head up from the floor...
-Words that I regret...

Flawless...Flawless...You think your flawless...
There's no fucking bees flowers or trees we're
all just Dying...Dying Inside...We're all just
Dying...Dying Inside...

I used to be someone now I am no one throwing myself
around in the dark...
I'm dying inside I'm hard on the surface
and cold in between...
You'll rip out my heart but don't leave your mark...
I'm dying inside...

Now I'm a danger to myself...
-Words that I regret...
I raise my head up from the floor...
-Words that I regret...

Flawless...Flawless...You think your flawless...
There's no fucking bees flowers or trees we're
all just Dying...Dying Inside...We're all just
Dying...Dying Inside...

Misery's bars beat the hell out of me...
Misery's bars beat the hell out of me...
Misery's bars beat the hell out of me...
Misery's bars beat the hell out of me...

Now I'm a danger to myself...
-Words that I regret...
I raise my head up from the floor...
-Words that I regret...

Flawless...Flawless...You think your flawless...
There's no fucking bees flowers or trees we're
all just Dying...Dying Inside...We're all just
Dying...Dying Inside...Flawless...Flawless...
You think your flawless...There's no fucking bees
flowers or trees we're all just dying...Dying inside...
Dying Inside...

Tear off the Skin

Tear off the Skin

I feel the water rise around my head today...
Be careful with the words and...
The fucking things you want to say...

Take out the nails from in my hands...
Take out the nails begin to feel...
Take out the nails begin to heal...
Take out the nails begin whats real...

I felt the water rise around the bridge in vain...
Be careful witht the souls who...
The fucking souls who cause you pain...

Close up the wounds that burn my hands...
Close up the wounds begin to feel...
Close up the wounds begin to heal...
Close up the wounds begin whats real...

This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out I'll see you...
This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out...

Tear off the skin begin to heal...
-Tear off the skin begin to heal...
Wear off the skin begin whats real...
-Wear off the skin begin whats real...

I felt the water rise above my head today...
Be careful with your words and games you want to play...
I felt the water rise above my head...
I felt the water rise above my head...
Be careful with your words and games and...
The fucking games you want to play...

Take out the nails from in my hands...
Close up the wounds that burn my hands...
Take out the nails begin to feel...
Close up the wounds begin to heal...

Tear off the skin begin to heal...
-Tear off the skin begin to heal...
Wear off the skin begin whats real...
-Wear off the skin begin whats real...

Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...
Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...
Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...
Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...Tear it off...

This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out I'll see you...
This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out...
This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out I'll see you...
This time they caught you in your sell out...I'll see you...
This time they won't see how you fell out...
