ANUBIS GATE gets New Drummer (With Same Name)
Pictured: New Drummer Morten Gade Sørensen
Morten Gade Sørensen (of Pyramaze and Wuthering Heights) has replaced Morten Sørensen in ANUBIS GATE. 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 comments on joining ANUBIS GATE: "I've been following ANUBIS GATE since they started and being a big fan of their universe it's an honor for me to be asked to join. I'm looking forward to working on the bands new material".
ANUBIS GATE gets new guitarist.
Michael Bodin (of Third Eye) replaces Jesper M Jensen in Anubis Gate.
Anubis Gate on Jesper leaving the band: Jespers decision to leave the band to pursue other musical interests has been some time in the making, actually Jesper announced his leaving to the band 3 months ago, leaving us with good time to the difficult task of finding the right replacement. We feel it's important for everybody to know that Jespers exit has nothing to do with personal differences, in fact we are still the best of friends. Jesper simply found that now was the right time to try something new. We are of course sad that he is leaving but respect his decision and wish him nothing but the best. We are happy to announce Michael Bodin as Jespers replacement. We know Michael from his works with Third Eye and nineties progmetal band Northern Empire. He is a fantastic player who can contribute with very interesting material, in fact he is already writing great new stuff for the new album which we expect out late 2013. We are looking very much forward to presenting the new lineup for you both on stage and on record.
