On Jan. the 20th Gåte is set to enter the semifinals of Norwegian leg of the Eurovision song contest with the brilliant and enchanting song “Ulveham”!
“Ulveham” is based on a medieval balled, and like other historical legends and songs it carries an important moral.
The song is a story of young maiden that undergoes a series of injustices, but by upholding justice and goodness, even in the toughest trials, she triumphs over evil forces and breaks the curse placed upon her.
Gåte emerged as a cultural gem in the early 2000s, seamlessly blending traditional Norwegian folk music with explosive rock, catapulting them from the confines of a practice space to grand stages in record time!
With this unique take on folk/trad rock and their triumphant live shows the band has managed to captivate massive audience.
The critically acclaimed band took a 12-year break before making a much-anticipated comeback in 2017, where Gåte again experienced enormous success with lauded live shows, two critically acclaimed studio albums, two EPs, and a mesmerizing live record.
Gåte’s music is a dark, mesmerizing and stunningly beautiful take on Nordic folk. Where they flirt with elements from traditional Norse and pagan music as well as from more modern genres like rock and industrial.
