Biography

Heavens Gate was formed in Spring 1987, playing at the time under the name Carrion. Their first demo featuring Thomas Rettke (voc.), Bonny Bilski (guit.), Ingo Millek (guit.), Manni Jordan (bass) and Thorsten Muller (drums) soon came to the interested ears of Frank Bornemann, the leader of the legendary German rock band Eloy and owner of Metromania Publishing.

After signing up with Warner Chappell / Metromania, Ingo Millek left the band in Summer 1987 and was immediately replaced by Sascha Paeth. No Remorse Records placed the band under contract in October 1987 and the signing was following by a session in Hannover’s Horus Sound Studio, where they recorded their debut album “In Control”, produced by Frank Bornemann and Tommy Hansen (Victory, Pretty Maids).
The album was released in January 1989 and soon afterwards the band were on the road as much hailed support for W.A.S.P, as well as on their own, well-attended headliner tour through Germany. A mini-album, “Open the Gate and Watch!” was released in April 1990 and Heavens Gate again went on tour throughout Germany, this time with Lawdy. Japan were quick to appreciate the Wolfsburgers’ fast, heavy and furious style. JVC/Victor released both products in August 1990 as a “two in one” CD.

    http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/12539-weakness-worms/ there's confusion over the name b/c they are two different bands.

    Wrong name of the band. Correct your tags, it doesn't have the apostrophe. It's Heavens not Heaven's.

    Great band! I love In Control And Living In Hysteria. One of the most underrated german melodic power metal bands of that moment along with Scanner and Chroming Rose. We got the times!
