ANUBIS GATE Issues Statement on New Drummer With Same Name

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.

Our goal for this track was to make a song that grabs you by the balls and doesn’t let up until the final blow.”

LANCE KING’s Radio Show “The S.H.O.P.P.” Gets a UK Affiliate

LANCE KING is world renowned in the underground as a melodic metal vocalist, singing on over 25 worldwide releases over the last 21 years. This fact is impressive in itself, but what is truly special about LANCE is his ability to morph his voice to fit any mood and intensity of a song, he’s proved this over the years by adding a very “special something” to every album he has been a part of.

In addition to being the owner of Nightmare Records and a singer LANCE also hosts his own weekly syndicated radio show “The S.H.O.P.P.”. “The S.H.O.P.P.” (Stellar Hour of Progressive Power). “THE S.H.O.P.P.” is sponsored by Nightmare Records focusing on the artists on Nightmare and artists on other labels Nightmare distributes. The show features yet to be released albums, new releases and some older things now and again. The Weekly show is replayed several times throughout the week on different stations, new shows start on Sundays since the show started originally on MetalExpressRadio as “THE SUNDAY HOUR OF PROGRESSIVE POWER”, it’s blossomed out to many other stations now, and continues to grow. For a list of affiliates click HERE.

Today LANCE is pleased to announce that his show will now be syndicated in the UK on EKR Internet Radio. The show will start airing Friday December 7th at 11:00 PM UK Time and will re-air at 2:00 AM Sunday morning UK Time.

LANCE is very excited to bring “The S.H.O.P.P.” to British audiences:

“I’m excited about getting an affiliate in Great Britain, it’s one of the places I spent a lot of time while in BALANCE OF POWER, more so recording and hanging out, and exploring doing shows, but did a few of those too. EKR is an extremely pro-run internet station, all those working there come from Broadcast backgrounds, and they’ve taken the best of what both mediums offer or have offered, and bring that to the listeners. Since they are internet, they’re another international station for “THE S.H.O.P.P.” so one can hear it anywhere..(just a matter of time conversion computations) which we happen to have on our schedule pages to help (since it confuses the hell out of me personally haha).”
