4 stars The Detached is the 4th full-length studio album by Danish progressive power metal act Anubis Gate. The band really surprised me with their last full-length album Andromeda Unchained (2007) and luckily I´ve been givin the opportunity to make a review of The Detached too. There´s been no lineup changes since Andromeda Unchained and it seems that Anubis Gate has now found the right constallation with lead singer Jacob Hansen who joined the band on the last album.

The Detached pretty much starts where Andromeda Unchained ended. Quality progressive power metal with an excellent flair for melody, heavy yet melodic riffs, great synth/ keyboards, a powerful rythm section and Jacob Hansen´s strong high pitched vocal delivery. Of course my surprise over the high compositional quality on Andromeda Unchained means that I had high expectations to The Detached and they´ve been fully met but unfortunately there were no surprises this time. My complaint is that the two albums sound very much alike and I´m not detecting much development on The Detached compared to Andromeda Unchained. Please regard this as a minor complaint though as the quality of music on this album is very high.

The production is very polished yet powerful and detailed.

The Detached is another excellent release by Anubis Gate but this is one of those cases where I demand to hear something different on the next release. I´m not sure I will be as impressed with the next album if it´s subtitled Andromeda Unchained number III. Still you can´t deny quality and The Detached is certainly a quality product and a 4 star rating is fully deserved. Anubis Gate has proven yet again that they are one of the most professional and well playing Danish progressive metal acts out there.

3 stars I can understand a song about Pyramids. After all, Western man has always been fascinated with them. But dodecahedrons? (see also : the namesake band, Daal). You're out to prove something. Anyway, industrially-laced dark power proggers Anubis Gate have a praiseworthy work ethic, after a 20-year g ... (read more)

4 stars Anubis Gate are without a doubt one of the most interesting contemporary progressive power metal bands in the world and as far as I am concerned the best metal export from Denmark. It's a shame that those guys haven't made their breakthrough yet especially as they are able to not only maintain th ... (read more)

4 stars a difficult one for me to review/ rate. falling as it does between Andromeda Unchained (arguably the band's best effort to date) and the self-titled Anubis Gate (a great album in its own right), The Detached has: some fantastic stuff: Yiri, Dodecahedron, Pyramids, Out of Time, Options - Going ...

5 stars Attached... On "The Detached", Anubis Gate pretty much continue where they left off with "Andromeda Unchained", although keyboards and electronics seem to have been given a slightly more prominent role on "The Detached". There are no weak tracks on this CD as such, but my personal favorites ... (read more)

4 stars I haven't heard this album many times and in adequate depth(which is inexcusable for progressive listeners)but because I have focused oon some of their previous works such as Andromeda Unchained and Purification I can make some comparisons. This one is much as its predecessor but with an evolutio ... (read more)
