Amadeus Awad commented about the album: "The writing of 'The Book Of Gates' started as a collaborative work between the band members, resulting in a heavy progressive album with oriental elements never heard before. Heavier sound, mighty production and huge international names mark the start of the band's new age, a new EON.
Spiraling into the depth of deception, hypocrisy and greed, the characters of 'The Book Of Gates' travel through the fabrics of Life and Death's epiphanies.
The quest for immortality, dictated by false doctrines and promises of lying priests..., places a huge political burden on the reign of the pharaohs. 'The Book Of Gates', the tale of a union separated by an abyss of psychological turbulence and the alliance of opposites."
"The Book Of The Gates" cover artwork was designed by the Lebanese graphic artist Bernard Bou Kheir. The album's release date will be announced soon.
AMADEUS AWAD'S EON recently shared a video of the North American vocalist Amanda Somerville sharing her thoughts and feelings about working on "The Book Of Gates". The video features footage from the recording sessions and much more.
