Heavens Gate To Release ‘Best For Sale!’ Compilation

Heavens Gate – Best For Sale! (Album Art)

From their first days in 1987 until their break in 1999, HEAVENS GATE were among the top representatives of German Heavy Metal. They had a large fan base, especially in Japan, and their albums such as ‘In Control’, ‘Livin’ In Hysteria’ or ‘Hell For Sale!’, are respected as some of the best German Metal albums, and are often listed in one line with classic albums of bands such as HELLOWEEN or BLIND GUARDIAN. Back in the day band played regular tours with acts such as W.A.S.P., DREAM THEATER, as well as own headlining ones. HEAVENS GATE featured in its ranks legendary producer Sascha Paeth (EDGUY, EPICA, KAMELOT), and vocalist Thomas Rettke (AVANTASIA, AINA). 

“Best For Sale!” will be released via Limb Music on June 19, 2015, and will be available as CD (with 17 tracks) and digital download (with 20 tracks).

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
