sample the album:
"Chuck follows on the heels of last years stunning Stench LP...side A of Chuck finds the trio going full-bore into free jazz improv, but as expected this isn't your average blowing session, The Gate delve into areas that bring to mind more out sounds of Wolf Eyes or No Neck Blues Band but still maintain a free jazz sensibility throughout.
Just when you think you've figured out their game Side B comes along with the 26 minute through-composed piece "The Huldrefish" that features the trio with guests Nate Wooley (trumpet, amplifier) & Tim Dahl (electric bass). The sounds are still dark and foreboding but as much of their metal-tinged imagery would suggest, but there is an added sense of composure and purpose. Epic in every possible sense."-Astral Spirits
