And we can conquer all!Heavens Gate (no apostrophe included) is a German Heavy / Power Metal band.The band started out as a more serious outfit named Steeltower (well, as serious as metal can get). After the name-change to Heavens Gate, they gained popularity in Japan and had a semi-succesful career in the late eighties and early nineties thanks to that. Their work in the middle of their career was somewhat humorous and tongue-in-cheek, but their themes gradually darkened before their breakup in 1999.
