One of the last two songs that we did with Sue. "Shelter from the Storm" is available for download or streaming on all the common platforms.

We're sorry to announce that Elysian Gates and Sue Scarano will go separate ways for strictly personal reasons. 

She had been with Elysian Gates from day one and we appreciate all the effort and dedication she put into the band and wish her all the best for the future.




All right people, we've got great news:

We're very excited to announce that STEVE KRIPPLER joined us as  our new drummer!! 

He's been with us for a few weeks now and he's not only a great drummer but also a cool and funny guy who fits in nicely.

Welcome Steve!!!








May 27th, 2018

Hey Hey,

good news today! After some auditions, we finally found the perfect match to take over on the bassguitar.

Let´s welcome Jean Nyssen, formerly known from the band Dark Lambency! Welcome buddy!

April 24th, 2018

Hi folks!

Unfortunately we have a less funny message for you today.

With a heavy heart, we have to announce that our buddies Christian and Kim decided to quit the band.

We won't comment the reasons why and we would like you to know that we parted on good terms as friends.

We wish them both all the best for their future. However, we would like to thank them for the f@çKing amazing time we had together!

They're both amazing guys everybody wants to share time with, and so did we!!!

Meanwhile, we are obviously searching for a new bass player. So feel free to contact us if you're interested in joining the party.

Furthermore we will present our new drummer very soon (some of you might have seen him in Best), so stay tuned!

April 22th, 2018

Hey hey folks! We're back home in Luxembourg but still pretty excited about yesterdays FemMe Battles Semi-Final. We had a blaaast!! As usual all of you were amazing and everything went smoothly. We met lots of amazing musicians and were happy to meet the FemMe crew again after such a long time, which made us somehow feel like coming home. Also we'd like to congratulate the absolutely amazing band Setheist from Poland and Seraphiel from Finland for winning the battle. As you might have heard, we got the wildcard and we will also be part of the Finals in June! 

So, see you on road again! Cheers!




Once again we will join the FemMe Battles 2018 in Best (NL) for the semi finals on April 22th. We hope to see you guys there!

April 15th, 2018

Hi folks, 

after the departure of Guy we have started to look for a new lead guitarist to start the next chapter with us and also the upcoming concerts.

As of today we can announce that Mike Christmann, also known from the band Angel's Whisper, will be joining in on guitars from now on. We are looking forward to the future with him as part of Elysian Gates. So let's welcome him with lots of thumbs ups! Our next gig will be April 22th in Best(NL) at the FemMe Battle Semi-Final 2.

Hope to see you guys out there! Cheers!

February 26th, 2018

Dear Folks,

It's been a difficult winter so far for the Elysian Gates.

As you may have heard, Guy has decided to leave the band.

We'd like to thank him for 8 absolutely amazing years (considering from where we once started 😌) and wish him good luck with his new adventures.

Meanwhile, the 5 of us continue the old adventure. Several local guitar players have kindly offered their help, so, pretty soon we'll be able to post new dates and venues for Elysian Gates' Gigs in 2018.

The first raw demos for the new album sound fxxxing amazing so far.

Thx for your patience. See ya really soon.

Stay healthy and tuned. 

Noé, Sue, Kim, Chris, Thierry

"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."

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!

Sincerely yours,


November 28, 2014

Nr 1 on Itunes charts


The new single “Northern winds” is now available since a few hours and it already climbed on 1! You can buy it via Itunes, Amazon and directly here above on CD Baby. You can view the videoclip on Youtube.

Elysian Gates already wants to thank their fans for their amazing support.

Sea Shepherd made this possible. Thank you!

Big shout out to  www.pulsapictures.com for the great video and 'De Schluck' for his amazing pictures.

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.
