Anubis Gate is a Danish progressive metal band. Stylistically Anubis Gate is conglomeration of the classic 80's heavy metal, a more epic 90's ambience and a dark progressiveness of our days. You could describe it as metal with beautiful soundscapes, cool riffing, and a clear and powerful vocal performance. Musical inspirations for Anubis Gate are acts such as Queensryche, Iron Maiden, Lord Bane, Tad Morose, Iced Earth, Crimson Glory, Fates Warning, King Crimson, Genesis & Savatage… read more

  • I just can't believe that nobody mentions 'Perfect Forever' which is by far the best Anubis Gate album on my opinion. It has the perfect amount of heavy, progressive and melodic parts, well constructed and lyrically deep with unique feeling and atmosphere. Torben Askholm might not be the best singer, but he delivers it excellent on this album. Later albums are good, but I found them too 'polished' and a lot of songs kind of generic, senseless. Yet, a couple of tracks are masterpieces, like Pyramids from The Detached and Hold Back Tomorrow and Desiderio Omnibus from Anubis Gate album.
  • personally I found the four albums from andromeda unchained onwards to be superb in their own right, but if I really had to choose I would have to give horizons a very slight edge over the other three
  • Interesting discussions below. For me, Andromeda Unchained was unrivaled for such a long time, but now I love the self-titled one way more. Henrik Favres vocals are much more to my liking. I actually also think The Detached is one of their weaker ones to be completely honest.
  • A couple tracks on "Horizons" centered around the theme of "Dreams", which was sort of neat, but I would love to see them try a full-on concept album again sometime. :-)
  • "Horizons" took awhile, but it really grows with time. The self titled was great too, but "Andromeda Unchained" & "The Detached" are just simply on another level. Perhaps Hansen's vocals were slightly better, but I don't think it really had much to do with the singer change. Personally, I think what separates those 2 albums from the others is that they were full on sci-fi concept albums, with immersive & well thought out story-lines. The Spacey/Sci-Fi themes fit the band's style of modern progressive metal like a glove, with their subtle use of electronic effects having more of a purpose. The music on the last 2 albums with Ferve on vocals is technically just as good, but they don't even come close to matching the immersive atmosphere of the Hansen albums.
  • It's so interesting how varied everyone's opinions on the band's best works are. I loved Andromeda, adored the self-titled, but for me Horizons is far and above one of the greatest albums ever made! Can't wait to see them in Atlanta this year for ProgPower.
  • I agree, both "Andromeda Unchained" and "The Detached" are my fave albums too. Outstanding vocals by Hansen.
  • Andromeda Unchained / The Detached will forever be unmatched, bring back Jacob Hanson.
  • Horizons is Hypnotic. Can´t get enough of it. Simply Amazing
  • for me, Horizons gets better the more I listen to
