The band comments: "After careful consideration and 5 albums behind the drums, Morten Sørensen felt it was time to get off the bandwagon to pursue other musical interests. We would like to say that this is a peaceful parting of the ways and that we are still good friends. We are of course sad to see Morten Sørensen go, but also excited to have another one of Denmark's very finest drummers to join the band. It is with great pleasure that we can announce his replacement Morten Gade Sørensen, known for his excellent drumming in bands such as Pyramaze, Wuthering Heights and Lance King.
Morten Gade Sørensen added: "I've been following Anubis Gate since their beginning and being a big fan of their universe it's an honor for me to be asked to join the group. I'm looking forward to start working on the new material."
