excited to see if this kickstarter pans out! If it does, we get a bunch of cool bonus tracks...

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.
18 Feb 2015, 1:59pm
Andromeda Unchained / The Detached will forever be unmatched, bring back Jacob Hanson.

Horizons is Hypnotic. Can´t get enough of it. Simply Amazing
20 Aug 2014, 11:28pm
for me, Horizons gets better the more I listen to
6 Jun 2014, 12:37pm
He likes very much touch of an intense sound and tempo, and the foreign country which drifts faintly.
4 Jun 2014, 12:01pm
Horizons wears off quickly, IMO. I loved it a lot at first, but it seems like every time I listen to it I love it a little less. Their S/T is still leagues ahead of anything else they've done.
2 May 2014, 8:59am
Great new album 4/5.
29 Apr 2014, 2:37am
Outstanding new album..surely will be one of the best prog albums of the year. Revolution Come Undone is my fav so far
26 Apr 2014, 6:44pm
I'm listening to the new album right now and it just isn't doing it for me like their previous releases have. At this point my favorite album so far this year is Lacuna Coil's Broken Crown Halo.
26 Apr 2014, 2:21pm
great new album!
23 Apr 2014, 9:20pm
Horizons looks like it's on track to being one of the most under-appreciated albums of 2014! Really powerful stuff.
20 Apr 2014, 11:56pm
New Album is so Great!! A Dream Within a Dream!!
17 Apr 2014, 10:24am
this band sucks camels dick
16 Apr 2014, 11:02pm
This album is growing on me more and more... as well as the band.
16 Apr 2014, 5:28am
Horizons is a solid step up from the s/t. I was hesitant about it for a while, but it turned out pleasantly.
16 Apr 2014, 3:28am
New album is really damn good.
15 Apr 2014, 10:39pm
New album is simply amazing!!!
15 Apr 2014, 10:07pm
Great new album in every sense, best 2014 album so far ?
15 Apr 2014, 11:32am
Horizons is the best first listen I've ever had of an Anubis Gate album.
3 Apr 2014, 1:12am
Really liking [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pARREzvOYb4]Never Like This[/url]!
2 Apr 2014, 2:40pm
New album "Horizons" sounds promising on teaser. Andromeda Unchained will remain forever unbeatable, though.

Andromeda Unchained, good record.
29 Apr 2013, 1:06pm
check my band! you will love it if you like some good prig-metal!!! http://www.last.fm/music/Until+Rain
16 Apr 2013, 9:42pm
One of my favorite modern prog metal bands. Just awesome. Heavy, dynamic, atmospheric, melodic, powerful. Henrik did a good job on vocals on the latest release, but I do really miss Jacob's vocals. He was just fantastic.
3 Apr 2013, 1:17am
Great band.... Options - Going Nowhere <3
16 Mar 2013, 4:08pm
Lost in Myself fucking amazing song !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just listened to Andromeda Unchained, and I think I've found my newest awesome band.
19 Sep 2012, 3:15am
One of the few prog bands that I can really dig. Fun stuff.
23 Aug 2012, 11:13pm
Thanx 4 the heads up
1 Aug 2012, 2:24am
Just a little heads up...apparently Anubis Gate is half-way through the writing process of a new album! Can't wait for that, the last 3 albums have been flawless. In the meantime, I strongly recommend Anubis Gate fans to check out the solo album "A Moment In Chiros" by [url=http://www.last.fm/music/Lance+King]Lance King[/url]. It's not just any solo album -- not only is it produced by ex-Anubis Gate singer Jacob Hansen, but Kim Olsen from Anubis Gate does the guitars and keyboards on it. The result is something that sounds quite similar to Anubis Gate. The keyboard intro for [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU9MKJC2B0s]"Infinite Divine"[/url] sounds a bit like the intro to "Hold Back Tomorrow", and the opening riff for [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYDfp5cA8ZE]"The Awakening"[/url] also sounds like the opening riff for "Hold Back Tomorrow". It's not as progressive overall as AG, but has a similar production and that modern/Sci-Fi atmosphere is also present.

S/t is great. I loved Jacobs vocals with Beyond Twilight but his work with Anubis Gate sounds too Labrie whine'ish for my tastes. The guy singing on their latest album (bassist, right?) has a really original sound. World in a Dome and Golden Days are my favourites but all songs are great except maybe Facing Dawn which has an annoying chorus.
9 May 2012, 5:26pm
killer my friends!
7 May 2012, 11:40pm
Their latest album is definitely the best one so far for me.
29 Apr 2012, 7:02am
@Metalspic The S/T is their best overall IMO, but The Detached is a very close second.
8 Mar 2012, 7:32pm
@Metalspic rest of their albums maybe:)
7 Mar 2012, 2:38pm
like them :)
5 Mar 2012, 4:15pm
@metalspic: try Andromeda Unchained. masterpiece!
4 Mar 2012, 7:55pm
I need more Anubis Gate. MORE. MOAR. MÁS! I've only heard their debut and their s/t. Recommendations?
