Chemical. Radical. Infectious. Flying faster than the speed of light because even that is now possible. Anubis Gate has slipped through the atmosphere clogged with the small, the average, the good and the great rock bands. They are racing for the highest stars.
Their brilliant harmonies rocket around twin lightning guitars, expansive wall to wall keys, a pounding bass and the best drumming I’ve heard since Bruford was declared the drum king.
Anubis Gate soars above YES and RUSH. Their music circles the Queensryche constellation, then departs, passing Fates Warning galaxy…we are flying fast and can Hold Back Tomorrow
I am not sure where I am now…yet there is the familiar music of Anibus Gate, we are deep in space and someone is singing in perfect high harmony….
Are you aboard too? This music is a cathedral of sound. As we crescendo back into another verse, the song is a like a movie where you can see all the details inside a dream…….the opening theme has returned and we are again…
flying to the sun…it’s only just begun.
…and now transformed by The Re-Formation Show, which is dark, and dangerous and I want to escape this place…
It’s been a long, long time..I lost my self-control…separated from my deepest soul…..it’s just illusion time and I’m about to go…off to see The Re-Formation Show!!!
A break, a moment to breathe…and then…we are back in…the bass leading and sick, insane drums pounding into my heart, as the guitars play the theme over and over…..and it rises and builds…until the music finds the chorus again…we don’t know it’s there till we are ..off to see The Re-Formation Show.
And now we are Facing Dawn..
Take a seat, the air is bittersweet, yesterday’s news….
This song is so fucking beautiful and no, I can’t give you a reason. Because you must listen for yourself. Besides, we are already past the Facing Dawn & now find ourselves trapped in a World in a Dome.
You’ve got what you want, the world in a dome. The world in a dome.
and there are these strange deep voices, or they are synthesized but they sound like us..day after day…raking and raking in the world in a dome…And this song is beyond incredible and CLASSIC…..an 8:08 minute EPIC World in a Dome.
and this could be my lucky day
and every time, in every song, the lead guitars lay down the theme, and only shred when called upon, this is not a show of bravado, every note is tailored to fit…painstakingly arranged, and yet so filled passion and primal power…
Next, Anibus Gate takes us to Oh My Precious Life. The guitar begins with strange effects and then the bass and drums kick up a dark, ambient beat; the guitars fill the entire galaxy that surrounds Anibus Gate..and this song is hard and deep and he is singing.
Oh My Precious Life…Oh My Precious Life…I’ve been wasting all my life…all I wanted was a world of mine.
The boys are shredding, then transitioning into more progressions. The refrain builds and this song seems to circle around us…and then I am cut away from it.
Here comes my golden days… it’s the vital state I’m in…
I find myself invincible, collecting golden days………
my immortality goes on…collecting golden days…….
I could be King or I could be anything in the reckless state I’m
in…they’ll turn their heads to learn my alphabet…it’s the future state I’m in…
Rain pours on me, here comes my golden days..it’s the final stage I’m in…
The Anubis Gate is fully open and I run outside; I am converted, transformed as I stand upon the barren landscape. I reach for headphones, slam them on, and I hear TellTale Eyes
“Use your eyes, use your eyes to see, telltale eyes, USE YOUR EYES!”
Suddenly there is a mad man screaming UNDERNEATH the music…WHAT THE F*CK?…then I am slammed by a lead guitar and a keyboard attacking back, until there is a pause so I can see… oh, the harmonies are beginning to rise again!
Use your eyes, Use your eyes, Use your eyes to see, Use your eyes TELLTALE EYES
I am bound to this Anibus Gate, fatefully bound…
and tossed into some unknown mechanical hall….where a machine somehow transforms itself into keyboard notes…..Circumstanced is now blasting from the gate.
Every time I close my eyes I see you coming back to me…but is it really what I want? Because the agony goes on…so the next time I close my eyes, I rest my case…because I can’t go on …
I am down by a River and I can hear Anibus Gate…dark, mysterious…NO! This is not the final song..this is the first song to carry me to the next Anibus Gate…the singing voices should not be fading in or out…and now the drums are pounding- warning me of this foreign place!!
No, not on the River, do not leave me outside Anibus Gate. I must run to start over but I am too far away now and I can see, using my eyes, I can see that it is closing.
