Anubis Gate Crowdfunding Box Set Release (Top Story)

On Wednesday Anubis Gate Crowdfunding Box Set Release was a top story. Here is the recap: (Nightmare Records) Anubis Gate has have announced that they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the re-release of their long-out-of-print and difficult to find first four albums in the form of a limited edition 6-disc box set called Orbits. We were sent the following details:

The new box set will contain the band's first four albums and two additional discs of bonus material. Originally released on the Spanish label Locomotive, these albums have been long out of print.

After having released the first four Anubis Gate albums, Locomotive Music went into hiding, taking with them the rights and funds still owed the band. As a result, these albums became rarities, commanding high prices being sold secondhand online.

Now fans can finally own these albums again without paying insane prices. In fact, the price for the complete 6-disc set will be lower than what one copy of Andromeda Unchained has been listed for on eBay.

Included in the Orbits box set will be the albums Purification, A Perfect Forever, Andromeda Unchained, and The Detached, plus a double disc bonus set that will include rare and unreleased studio and live material. In addition, there will be a 24-page booklet with a special track-by-track guide by the original band members who made these recordings. Each box set will be numbered, and a bundle option with an Anubis Gate Orbits logo shirt will also be available.

Kim Olesen had the following to say, "Hi people! This has been so long in the making and we are so glad to finally get this on track. I've had many, many inquiries over the years in regards to making these albums available again.

"The biggest roadblock was Locomotive's refusal to communicate with us and breaching their contract by not paying any royalties after 2008 and still not allowing the rights to revert back to us.

"Furthermore, they continued to sell them digitally until about a year and half ago while, at the same time, depriving us of money that we could have used for things such as touring and paying the bills that bands typically have.

"Only when the Danish Musicians' Union (DMF) stepped in did we stop these sales and regain the rights to these first four albums. Now that they are finally under our control again, we can release them without too much of a bitter business taste in our mouth.

"They are important parts of the history of the band and as parents say, 'we love all our children,' which goes for these albums, too. We hope you will contribute to making these available again with our Kickstarter campaign; we put much love and hard work into them - both in their creation and the ensuing struggle to win them back."
