Danish Prog Metal Band ‘Anubis Gate’ to Release “Covered In Black” Abum In Sept., Album Teaser Posted


The wait is over! After over three years, the Danish prog masters Anubis Gate will release the successor of highly acclaimed, “Horizons,” on September 1st via Nightmare Records. The new album will be entitled “Covered In Black” and the band shared its cover artwork created by Nikos Marko, tracklist and some other details in a statement.

It was produced by Kim Olesen and Jacob Hansen.

It says: “What would have been mature was to make an album resembling our previous album Horizons, going with the beautiful feel-good vibe of that album (though its topics were not all that feel-good).”

“Instead, the writing of this album simply did not go in that direction. While Covered In Black is a highly melodic affair, it is also challenging in a way none of our previous albums are. Dealing with, and dedicated to, people in dark places, this albums has a darker and more complex edge to it. Allowing ourselves to dig deeper into our collective pool of musical experiences and knowledge, the inspirations come from far across the spectrum,” the band explains, promising an album with a variety of musical styles “ranging from classical chamber music, seventies prog and extending to thrash, with very eastern influences popping up.”

“Is it a concept album? No. But it is a theme album. About people in dark places. From psychopaths, assassins to the more modern topics of being at the receiving end of what is bad about social media. Topics of lifelong failure and revenge are touched upon.”
