ANUBIS GATE to Co-Headline ProgPower Europe Festival


ANUBIS GATE
returns to the scene of its very first public gig in 2005. This return visit, on Friday October 5th is a special occasion for the band. In 2005 the festival invited ANUBIS GATE to play what turned out to be their very first gig. This year ANUBIS GATE returns as one of the headlining bands of the festival.

The band spoke about their return to the ProgPower Europe Festival:
"It's with much excitement that we can announce this festival date. We hope to see a lot of you in Barlo (Netherlands) this October. And we are of course especially thrilled to be back on the stage where the live side of the band started."

The music of ANUBIS GATE: 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.

Their latest album,titled simply ANUBIS GATE, is the most beautiful album the band has yet emerged with. The songwriting, which has always been the core of the "ANUBIS GATE sound", stands stronger than ever. This time emphasized by the fact that Henrik Fevre, who was largely responsible for writing the vocals on the previous albums, gets to sing the songs he wrote himself, injecting the emotion and meaning into the lyrics that he had in mind when writing them.

ANUBIS GATE
isn't an album that's about endless keyboard/guitar unison soloing. It's all about the songs. From the classic Anubis Gate opener "Hold Back Tommorow" to the melancholic, but very crunchy, "The Re-formation Show", this album displays ANUBIS GATE at the top of their game while in no way rehashing their last two albums. Quite to the contrary, this album sees the band taking new turns whilst retaining the core of all the albums that came before.
