In January melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates announced that they were working on their fifth record, At War With Reality. We now have confirmation that the record is complete and will be released on October 27th in Europe and October 28th in North America through Century Media Records.
Vocalist Tomas Lindberg said:
“We are very excited to finally have finished this new album. An album that we’ve been working on for over a year now. It’s by far the most challenging record that we have made, but it’s an honest album and I think that you will feel that it is faithful to the legacy of AT THE GATES.
“We have, through the process of creating it, been true to ourselves and our art. From hearing the first demos that Anders presented to the band last summer, through the extensive stages of songwriting, pre-production, rehearsals, recording and mixing, we now finally got the finished album in our hands.
“We are very happy to have managed to produce an album that we feel is truly ‘us’. Something we can all stand behind one hundred percent. I can’t wait ’til you all get to hear it!”
At War With Reality will be At The Gates first studio album in nearly 20 years and features the same lineup that on their landmark album Slaughter Of The Soul. The record was produced by Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman and mixed by Jens Bogren Fascination Street Studio.
