Released on the 30. of March 2009, the album titled ”The Detached” features 12 amazing songs by Anubis Gate. All based on a story by renowned game play writer Martin Rauff and set to lyrics by Anubis Gate's own Henrik Fevre. The album was produced by Jacob Hansen and Kim Olesen, and features the same line-up as Andromeda Unchained. This album sees the band further develop their unique style of progressive power metal, with new twists and turns, but as always with the song-writing taking the high seat. The album is a concept album featuring the story of Bilao, who is one of a few "detached". A human race able to move in time by sheer physical power. The Album features some of Anubis Gate's strongest songwriting to date and brings to fore the blend of hard guitars, beautiful soundscapes and melodic vocals, that fans have come to expect of Anubis Gate.
The press said: “You can actually say that Anubis Gate has left Dream Theater behind and they proved that you don’t have to be that "techie" to produce a fine work of art” and “make The Detached your very next CD purchase. Deal? Trust me, you won't regret it”.
Epic melodic progressive rock/metal in the traditions of Genesis to Dream Theater.
