Emergency Gate

In 2005 the name Emergency Gate was heard for the first time. Not long after that the young band, with high musical potential, produced their first professional album "Nightly Ray" together with Spike Streefkerk (Mellissa Etheridge, Def Leppard, Phil Collins etc.). Metal Heart Magazine titled even the roughmix itself as "Album of the month".

In 2005 the name Emergency Gate was heard for the first time. Not long after that the young band, with high musical potential, produced their first professional album "Nightly Ray" together with Spike Streefkerk (Mellissa Etheridge, Def Leppard, Phil Collins etc.). Metal Heart Magazine titled even the roughmix itself as "Album of the month". That way no less label than TEC/Universal became attentive to Emergency Gate, got in touch with them and took them under contract.

At first "Nightly Ray" has been released in the middle of 2006 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux and the U.S.A. And it was possible for the five musicians to climb the top of the heavy-radio-charts in Benelux for one time! Certainly, short after the release of "Nightly Ray", drummer Stefan Paster left the band. However the missing piece of that puzzle was soon replaced by ex-Stormhammer drummer Chris "the machine" Widmann. Soon after that, Emergency Gate went on tour with the Danish-Combo "Mercenary" and closed endorsement contracts among others with names like: Ernie Ball, SAD, Schecter Guitar Research and Agner Drumsticks.

At the end of 2007, the band received a call from their label, in which they let them know, it won't be possible for TEC to release with Universal anymore and therefore the band is free from their contract. After really good cooperation with this label, it was really a hard hit for Emergency Gate. Founder member, singer and guitarist Fabian "Cem" Kie├čling also quit because of private matters. Now it was unclear, how the band should go on. ...show less
