"Symphonic Metal with a progressive touch and fronted by a powerful female voice offering an impressive vocal range.
The songs take you to worlds of fantasy and reflect on the bittersweet and dark sides of human reality."
Second studio album Crossroads out now!
« Ein selbstbewusstes und markantes Symphonic-Metal Werk, das sich nicht um
genretypische Grenzen schert » (SONIC SEDUCER)
« Komplex und vielseitig »
« Abwechslungsreich, spannend und eingängig »
« Wer gern in symphonischen Gewässern fischt, der angelt bei den Luxemburgern
vielleicht genau an der richtigen Stelle »
« Weltklasse »
(CUTE & DANGEROUS)
« Elysian Gates sorgen für frischen Wind im Genre »
„Die Fußstapfen der (vermeintlichen) Vorbilder "After Forever" "Epica" oder
"ReVamp" sind keinesfalls zu groß. Daumen hoch“
„Klingt wie The Gathering in ihrer Frühphase. Unterm Strich ist "Crossroads" verdammt ordentlich geworden“
„Crossroads" liefert in der Tat den Soundtrack für eine epische Geschichte, die mit atmosphärischem Symphonic-Dream-Metal die Fantasie beflügelt“
News coming up:
We had a lot of fun during the videoshooting! We need to thank Mélanie Schons, Fabien Spaus, Caroline Rocco, Joshua Marx, Christophe Schammel, Sandro Ortolani, Tania Davelli and Steve Staar for their awesome work! Teasers coming up soooooon....

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Dear families, fans and friends,
We want to thank you for your support throughout this year. We had to reboot the band with a new singer, put lots of work in this, rereleased the album version and an edited version of ‘Seven Angels’.
We recorded a new single, ‘Northern winds’ in cooperation with Sea Shepherd. Released a videoclip with that song. We had a bunch of gigs which almost consist the best part of doing our stuff. It’s where you and us come together to have a good time, and that’s probably what matters most. Thank you!
Plans for 2015 are already made, but we’ll keep further info ‘til next year.
Until then, we want to wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year!

Furthermore a big thank you to little actress Julie who was very brave and still had a big smile on her face even after hours of shooting! Thanks to everybody who was involved and supports the project (too many to mention).
Now let´s make this project a good thing: buy the single, tell your friends, take a look at the activities of Sea Shepherd.
The proceeds will be donated to Sea Shepherd.

After our first successful gig with Jelena, we decided to rerecord vocals from ‘Seven angels’ from our album ‘Destination unknown’. The song will be made available as a download. This will give you the opportunity to have at least one song in proper quality with our new voice.
Also, there will be a radio edit to provide radiostations with an updated version of what Elysian Gates sound like. The download should be available before our next gig.
Coming to our next gig which will be april 20th at the Fabrik in Mersch. It’s on a Sunday, but don’t you worry: easter Monday follows, so that you’ll get enough sleep the next day.
Kim also visited Tom Nols from RTL radio on february 27th. You’ll soon find the replay in our media section / press.

Dear fans and friends, families and supporters
This year has been an uneasy one for us especially its second half. Some things didn't go by unseen! The fact that you still believe in us made us work even harder than before. This hopefully results in further acceptance and a strong bond between you and us!
In the very beginning of january we will finally present you our new singer! We recorded a song from 'Destination Unknown' with our new voice, had a photoshoot, relooked our internet page and rehearsed even more!
But in this more contempletive time of the year, we'd just like to wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year!
Sincerely yours, in music

Elysian Gates in today’s edition of the ‘LUXEMBURGER WORT’
You know that we’ve done a luxembourgish version of our song “Childhood’s end”: “Looss mëch Kand sinn” (thx again to Claude Kirsch for his input!). Well, what can we say: the single was quite successful as we almost sold all the cd’s! The project was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of family affairs. The beneficiary is the organisation “SOS Kannerduerf” in Mersch. Last saturday we handed the cheque over to M. Régis Thill, director of “SOS Kannerduerf”. We hope that we could contribute a little to a better future for the kids living in this facility.
We want to thank everybody who was involved in this project. A project that we find to be very important. Of course a big ol’ thank you goes out to you folks, our fans and friends. You highly contributed to its success!
Tune in for more news as we are about to reveal song snippets and pics of our new voice!
November 17, 2013
Great news on this rather grey sunday
Finally the quest for a new singer is over. We’re more than happy, and somewhat eased, to announce that we’ve found a new singer! But you’ll have to be patient a few more moments until we reveal more.
But until then, we’d like to thank the following singers for sharing their time with us, even if finally we didn’t get together (in order of appearance): Ralph BUHR, Joe RIES, Jeff ELCHEROTH, Terry KRIER, Marcus ORLANDER and Marc SCHARTZ.

The rest of the band will continue but is now considering options in terms of vox.
