AT THE GATES Releases New Album

at_the_gates_reality

Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES have finally released their long-awaited new album, At War With Reality! Recorded with the classic line-up of their latest masterpiece, Slaughter Of The Soul (1995), At War With Reality marks AT THE GATES’ first new release in 19 years. Never compromising their vision, this is an album that once again captures the honesty and integrity that has defined AT THE GATES, making them one of the most significant extreme metal names of the past 25 years. True devotees have always been excited by the band’s willingness to be diverse; this new effort continues that tradition after 19 years of anticipation. With this album, “the greatest Swedish Death Metal band ever reclaims their rightful throne” (DECIBEL MAGAZINE).
