Anubis Gate Posts Track-By-Track of "Horizons"

It's no secret that the members of Anubis Gate are great at what they do. In 2009, they won a Danish Metal Award for Best Production for their album, "The Detached," and were nominated for another two (Best Album and Best Cover Artwork). Their last album, self-titled (reviewed here), brought them even more critical acclaim and a rave review from us. Further, their latest effort, released just in April, entitled "Horizons" (reviewed here) also received high acclaim and another rave review from us. Capturing the eyes of the progressive metal genre with each release has always been Anubis Gate's style, although the concepts at play behind their lyrics may require some extra explaining.

Fortunately, much like their attention to background soundscapes, the band took some time to focus on and reveal the concepts and background of the songs themselves, as well as some of their feelings about them. Drummer Morten Gade Sørensen, bassist/vocalist Henrik Fevre, Guitarist Kim Olesen, and guitarist Michael Bodin sound off below. More...

Anubis Gate Reveals New Album Details

The sixth album from Danish prog metal outfit Anubis Gate will be titled "Horizons" and is due for release on Nightmare Records (distributed by Sony/RED) this coming April 15th, 2014. The label comments:

"Anubis Gate hit the studio the summer of 2013 recording new opus 'Horizons,' which is unmistakably Anubis Gate’s sound yet goes again to new places. Places perhaps one would call daring.

"From the liquid grooves to uneven time signatures, trademark soundscapes and heavy, sometimes even thrash metal riffing you will know this is both in the tradition of the band yet breaks new ground. Anubis Gate blend 80’s melodic heavy rock, epic ambience and a contemporary dark layered progressive metal. Inspired by the likes of Savatage, Genesis, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, King Crimson, Iced Earth, Crimson Glory, Fates Warning, Lord Bane & Tad Morose yet always sounding completely unique.

"New guitarist Michael Bodin’s heavy riffing works exceptionally well in a duel with long time guitarist Kim Olesen. The forward driving drums, courtesy of new drummer Morten Gade Sørensen, are a treat in themselves. Henrik Fevres melodic vocals are even more amazing and heartfelt than ever before. 'Horizons' showcases the band on it’s highest peak."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Destined To Remember
2. Never Like This (A Dream)
3. Hear My Call
4. Airways
5. Revolution Come Undone
6. Breach Of Faith
7. Mindlessness

Anubis Gate Releases "Sheep" EP As Free Download

Danish progressive metal band Anubis Gate released its new EP today, entitled "Sheep." The EP is available as a free download via www.NightmareRecords.com. The EP features three tracks at 22 minutes long. Each download comes with the tracks and printable artwork.

The band commented: "Hi everybody. As most of you know we have been working on our next effort called 'Horizons' for the last two years. But, as some of you also know, we are insane perfectionists, so we didn’t quite meet the deadline for a 2013 release, which was our plan otherwise. When we recorded 'Horizons' we had these three tracks that we didn’t quite know what to do with. A slightly different version of 'Destined to Remember' (the other version will be on the 'Horizons' album), A cover of the epic Pink Floyd track 'Sheep' (from their magnificent Animals album) and a cover of 'Broken Wings' originally by Mr. Mister. 'Broken Wings' was actually a fan request, which we thought 'oh, that’s a great idea'. So while you are all waiting patiently until early 2014 for the 'Horizons' album to be released, this is a little present from us to you. We hope you enjoy it."

The track list for the EP is:

1. Destined to Remember
2. Sheep (Pink Floyd Cover)
3. Broken Wings (Mr. Mister Cover) More...

Anubis Gate Issues Recording Update

Anubis Gate is currently working on the follow-up to the band's previous self-titled album (check out our review right here). The band has now posted the following recording update:

"Day one of drum recording. New drummer Morten Gade Sørensen is simply amazing. On the first day there is always a lot of time used for setting up, tuning the drums, setting up mikes etc. etc. and yet he nailed two of the long tracks and the two short ones, injecting a great dose of vitality into the music. And Jacob Hansens ears are as sharp as ever with great suggestions to both parts and sounds. And as ever his drum sound is fantastic."

Further details on the new release will be forthcoming. The album is expected to drop in late 2013 through Nightmare Records.

Morten Gade Sørensen (of Pyramaze and Wuthering Heights) has replaced Morten Sørensen in Anubis Gate. The band comments:

"After careful consideration and 5 albums behind the drums, Morten Sørensen felt it was time to get off the bandwagon to pursue other musical interests. We would like to say that this is a peaceful parting of the ways and that we are still good friends. We are of course sad to see Morten Sørensen go but also excited to have another one of Denmark's very finest drummers to join the band. It is with great pleasure that we can announce his replacement Morten Gade Sørensen, known for his excellent drumming in bands such as Pyramaze, Wuthering Heights and Lance King."

Morten Gade Sørensen comments on joining Anubis Gate: "I've been following Anubis Gate since they started and being a big fan of their universe it's an honor for me to be asked to join. I'm looking forward to working on the bands new material."

Anubis Gate Recruits New Guitarist

Anubis Gate has issued the following statement about guitarist Jesper parting ways with the band:

"Jesper's decision to leave the band to pursue other musical interests has been some time in the making, actually Jesper announced his leaving to the band 3 months ago, leaving us with good time to the difficult task of finding the right replacement.

"We feel it's important for everybody to know that Jesper's exit has nothing to do with personal differences, in fact we are still the best of friends. Jesper simply found that now was the right time to try something new. We are of course sad that he is leaving but respect his decision and wish him nothing but the best.

"We are happy to announce Michael Bodin as Jesper's replacement. We know Michael from his works with Third Eye and nineties progmetal band Northern Empire. He is a fantastic player who can contribute with very interesting material, in fact he is already writing great new stuff for the new album which we expect out late 2013. We are looking very much forward to presenting the new lineup for you both on stage and on record."

Anubis Gate released a self-titled full-length album (reviewed here) last year, and the band's lineup now is:

Henrik Fevre - vocals, bass
Kim Olesen - guitars, keyboards

Pit Stories: Technological Let Down

We've been catching up with fans and band members everywhere to get their mosh pit stories and tales of on-stage mishaps. This week guitarist Kim Olesen of Anubis Gate shares the following story of a technological malfunction.

I'll share a little tale of how tech stuff can let you down. The first concert we did in support of our previous album "The Detached," I had my in-ear monitor system attached to the strap (as I always have). Everything's going fine. We start the track “Dodecahedron.” I'm playing rockstar, standing on the drum podium. So far so good....until I jump down and my in-ear beltpack receiver empties itself of all the batteries. That's critical because that was almost all the sound I had on stage. Luckily this song has some passages that would sound OK if I didn't play so in-between playing without hearing what I play (looking at my fingers and hoping routine will do it). I'm searching the stage floor for the batteries, which must have looked very strange. Four guys playing away and the fifth guy crawling on stage to find his batteries. That day I learned to put gaffa tape around the receiver. Maybe not a big lesson for mankind, but a big lesson for this guitarist.

Anubis Gate is set to release the band's new, self-titled album (reviewed here) this coming September 13th, 2011. To see what bassist Henrik Fevre had to say about the album, head over to this location and check out Metalunderground.com's recent interview with the band.

Check back again next Tuesday for more pit stories sent in from bands and show-goers.
