Danish melodic progressive power metal band ANUBIS GATE has issued the following update:
"This summer will indeed be far from inactive in the ANUBIS GATE camp! We will start recording the drums [for the new album] at Hansen Studios early July, and after the drums have been tracked, guitars, keyboards and bass will be recorded at Kim Olesen's studio. Jacob Hansen's vocals will be done at Hansen Studios, and Henrik Fevre's vocals and backing [vocals] will be done at his own studio. The mix will be done mid-August at Hansen Studios. Locomotive will release the album February 2009. All the songs have been written and lyrics are being completed as we write this.
"We feel very strong about the new songs, that very much are following the lines of 'Andromeda Unchained', although with a twist. There's a feeling that some of the newer songs will be heavier, leaning a bit towards the hard riffage from 'A Perfect Forever', as well as there are some new elements and surpising twists to 'the ANUBIS GATE sound.' Every one of us is anxious to get started!
"Stay tuned for a detailed studio report starting the 30th of June!"
"We're sorry to say that we are no longer attending ProgPower Scandinavia [festival], as we left our longtime management, Intromental, and it was through them we got the slot. We're of course very sorry about that, but again, we understand that Intromental will not let us play since we're no longer part of the management roster.
"The general feeling in the band is that we will after the release of the next album be much more active looking for shows. So see you out there in 2009!"
ANUBIS GATE's most recent album, "Andromeda Unchained", was released last August via Locomotive Music. The CD was recorded at Hansen Studios and Sphere Music with producers Jacob Hansen and Kim Olesen and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios.
