15:55 - Zaphod Nope, and I don't intend to. I could go on and explain why, but it'd take me multiple shouts and I'm not really feeling like explaining my opinion on modern epic fantasy. So let's just say the series is too long for me.
15:45 - PocketMetal I like modern fantasy the most, have you read Malazan Book of the Fallen?
15:43 - Zaphod I usually read fantasy and sci fi, but most modern epic fantasy doesn't do it for me.
15:38 - PocketMetal I usually read epic fantasy, it was even harder for me to suddenly go to space.
15:31 - Zaphod It might also have to do with the fact that the last book I did read was Dune and that was one of the best sci fi books I've ever read.
15:29 - Zaphod I'm still on the first book. It's hard to get through for me, but that might have more to do with the fact that I haven't read a book in 4 months (!) (I usually read quite often)
15:27 - PocketMetal Revelation Space itself is kinda boring tho, I gave up after book 2. The ideas are really nice, but the characters are HORRIBLE.

You want to listen to new material from Anubis Gate? Well, as promised, the band released a long teaser of their new album Horizons. It is over 7 minutes of new music which you can enjoy right here. Horizons is coming out on April 15th via Nightmare Records.
Proggers Anubis Gate chose today to unveil the details about their anticipated new album Horizons and here they are. Their newest offering is coming via Nightmare Records on April 15th, 2014 and the Danish metallers will present ten new songs. Check out the cover artwork and tracklist below. You can also expect an album teaser soon to get in the mood. Let the anticipation begin!
Anubis Gate have been working on their next effort called Horizons for the last two years. The plan was to release it this year, but the band will not meet that deadline. When Anubis Gate recorded Horizons, there were three songs that they didn't know what to do with. A different version of the song "Destined To Remember", a cover of the Pink Floyd track "Sheep" and a cover of "Broken Wings", originally by Mr. Mister. So, while you are waiting patiently until early 2014 for the new album to be released, you can now download this 22-minute EP called Sheepover here.
Prog/power metallers Anubis Gate have decided to give fans a treat this weekend: a teaser for their upcoming new album Horizons. You can listen to almost three minutes of new music in the form the three small studio videos shot during the recording process. Since the mix of the album will be in mid August, these are rough mixes. However, you can already get a taste of the new songs "Destined To Remember", "Breach Of Faith" and "Hear My Call".
In case you didn't know, the follow-up to Anubis Gate's last self-titled album released in 2011 is in the works. The progressive metal band is currently in the recording process and plans to release it later this year. Anubis Gate has already revealed its title: Horizons, which could symbolically mean that they will try to open new horizons on their music. We'll see.
Proggers Anubis Gate face a line-up change. The band announced that guitarist and founding member Jesper M. Jensen decided to leave the band. He has now been replaced by Michael Bodin (Third Eye). On the bright side, the band is currently writing new material and plans to release a new album in 2013.
Danish metallers Anubis Gate will release their new self-titled album on September 13 via Nightmare Records.
According to a press release, the new 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. Once again produced by Kim Olesen and Jacob Hansen and with a stunningly great mix done by the latter, this album brims with the twin guitar attack of Jesper M Jensen and Kim Olesens guitars, the rich emotion of Henrik Fevres voice, the rich soundscapes of Kim Olesens keyboard work and the dream rhythm section of Morten Sørensens drumming and Henrik Fevres bassplaying. 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 chrunchy, "The Re-Formation Show". From the fast aggressive "Desiderio Omnibus" to the epic "World In A Dome". From the surprising "Oh My Precious Life" to the atmospheric "River" this album displays Anubis Gate at the top of their game while in no way rehashing the last two albums. Quite to the contrary this albums sees the band taking new turns whilst retaining the core of all the albums that came before.
Denmark's Anubis Gate has inked a deal with Nightmare Records. The band has also parted ways with singer Jacob Hansen replaced him with Henrik Fevre.
Commented the group: "Nightmare Records is a label that we have had our eyes on for some time, but due to contractual obligations with our old label we haven't been able to join them before now. Needless to say, we are very excited about signing with Nightmare who we feel is the perfect home for our music. With a record label that really loves music (and those are few and far in-between) the future for Anubis Gate looks brighter than ever."
On the topic of the singer switch, Anubis Gate said, "With Jacob's ever-more-demanding schedule as a first-class producer, Jacob found it hard to have the time and keep his heart in the band. We fully respect his decision and reasons to leave and want to thank Jacob for being with us for an amazing couple of albums. We are still very good friends and Jacob is still involved in shaping the new album in his capacity as the best producer in metal. We wish Jacob nothing but the best in his future career. Anubis Gate has always been blessed with great singers. The decision to have Henrik take over vocal duties is a natural one for us. Henrik is the one that for a big part shaped the vocal melodies and lyrics of Anubis Gate and when Torben had to bow out of the gigs we did in support of A Perfect Forever it was Henrik who sang those gigs. Henrik has also had several songs on our albums where he performed lead vocals. Most notably "Take Me Home" on the Andromeda Unchained album. So we knew beforehand it would work out great, which it certainly has."
Danish progressive power metallers Anubis Gate are currently working on a new album. The band entered the studio last Friday to begin recording its new album for a late 2010 release.
Vocalist/producer Jacob Hansen issued the following update today: "Morten Sørensen (drums), Kim Olesen (guitars/keys) and I went into the studio this Friday to track drums for our new album.
Morten started off by laying down some of the heaviest and best drums I have ever heard him do, so I'm confident that the new album will have a pretty strong rhythm section! Furthermore, it was great to hear the new songs slowly come to life, which they always do when we track drums to the demo vocals, guitars and keys. It suddenly starts to make sense. The songs seem a bit darker to me, and I like that...
Denmark Power metallers Anubis Gate have issued the short following update:
"We have started writing new material. All song writers have a lot of material, that needs to be put together to form real songs. The plan is to enter the studio during the summer of 2010, but before that we have a lot of demoing the new material, writing lyrics and generally coming up with something spectacular for our coming album."
