Gåte (Norwegian for riddle or mystery) was a band that formed in Trondheim, Norway in 1999. They played Norwegian folk and folk inspired music, blended with heavy rock and electronica, sometimes called progressive folk-rock.
While some songs are original, many come from traditional Norwegian folk songs. Some songs are based on the poems of the Norwegian poet Astrid Krogh Halse. These include "Følgje" ("Companion") and "Stengd Dør ("Closed Door").
