On this date, ANUBIS GATE announces that, as a protest against the business practises of streamingservices, we are converting to a gigging cover band, in order to make real money. We will be playing classics such as Back In Black (AC/DC), Strawberry Fields Forever (The Beatles) and the groundbreaking 1984 hit Aggressive Perfector (Slayer) and so forth, thus being the perfect band for wedding receptions and suchlike. All the best, Anubis Gate.
ANNIVERSARY: 10 years ago today the album "The Detached" was released. Has it really been 10 years! It is our only real concept album (meaning a concept album from the onset) to date and it was a big task to complete. It was also the last album to feature Jacob Hansen's vocals. If you don't know it already, today might be a good time to give it a try. Happy anniversary, guys. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLuy7KyBjOE
😳 We’ve just witnessed a troubling new marketing practise in the world of metal. A record label put a commercial of a full 7 minute track from another band in front of one of Anubis Gates songs on youtube. Talk about aggresive marketing 😡 Taking this into the bigger perspective. If this becomes common practise, every time someone chooses a playlist by a band (perhaps to learn more about it) 50% of the music they hear will not be by the band they wanted to hear, since every song will be preceeded by a paid commercial for another bands song. And before you say why don’t you skip the commercial; no-one goes to the app to skip every commercial in a playlist since commercials are often 10 second car commercials etc. Here we are talking full tracks aggresively pushed in front of fellow artists tracks. Fortunately the band understood that this practise is unsymphatetic and contacted their label, so thanks to them for acting. But really this is a VERY dangerous road to go down. It will hurt everybody in the business of metal.

You can now read a great review from our gig in Odense on April 28. By Lacy Mucklow from Ladyobscure.com, one of 6 Americans that attended. http://ladyobscure.com/concert-reviews/anubis-gate-at-musikhuset-posten-in-odense-denmark-42818/
This is crazy and a bit funny as well. It IS a rarity and you will have to pay some to get the original issue, but we suggest that you go buy the Orbits boxset instead. You get all 4 of our first CDs and a double bonus CD for a fraction of this price. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Anubis-Gate-A-Perfect-Forever-CD-MUSIC-Completely-new-and-sealed/282980046357?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1
Recently our track "Horizons" made it passed the 1 mio. listenings mark on Spotify. Quite amazing, as it never had a video made for it or has that many views on Youtube. But nevertheless. Thank you to all who listens out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMAZ9vB3k8Q
The 128th episode of Progtopia has a gig report from ANUBIS GATEs last gig on the "shortest tour ever tour". Lacy Mucklow and Dave Perrussel, two of the (obviously crazy) people who crossed the Atlantic ocean to see us gives us their stories about going to Denmark from the USA to see Anubis Gate. https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/progtopia/episodes/2018-05-11T14_31_35-07_00

ANUBIS GATE thanks everybody who attended the “shortest tour ever” tour. You people are the best. We had people from Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Norway and the United States traveling to see us and we are overwhelmed by the fact that what we create can draw people from both near and very far ❤️ (Photo: Tommy Sonne Skøtt)
Last night we had an amazing time playing our last (for now) gig in Odense. Apart from Danes and ex-members of the band, there were people from the USA, Germany and Norway to see us. Thank you so much for coming and making this a night to remember for all of us. We can’t wait to do it all over again. Unfortunately Michael Bodin had “gone missing” while this picture was taken.
