4 stars I don't know much of Anubis Gate's music, so I can't really compare Sheep to the band's other releases. I have listened to The Detached a few times. I have spent a lot of time listening to this EP, and I'm definitely impressed. It was enough for me to seek out the band's other music. I find the choice of cover songs very interesting. I think Pink Floyd reached their peak about the time of Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, and started to go downhill when Roger Waters started gaining too much control. However, I really like this version of "Sheep".

How many bands, including progressive metal bands, would choose to cover Mister Mister's "Broken Wings"? It's a song I've always liked. Anubis Gate does what a band should do when they're making a cover version. They change the songs enough to make them an interesting alternative to the originals. I'm not going to discuss the musicians here; I'll just say that they're talented gentlemen who know what they're doing. Musically, my favorite part of this EP is Henrik Fevre's voice. He has a terrific tenor voice. Over all, this is an excellent CD, and a good introduction to the band.
