Invocation of the Wrath of the Gods of War is The Black Gates's first of four demos. It helped gain the band plenty of attention but critics in the scene were not very impressed, calling it 'amateurish, let down by some fundamental skill errors' in one case and rated 43/100 in the now defunct zine MetalForTheBrain. It didn't deter the band however, they were stoked they had their own material out there and helping their cause.
