NEWS: At The Gates premier “The Nightmare Of Being”!

Celebrating the release of their new album with a music video for the title track, Gothenburg Sweden Melodic Death Metal pioneers At The Gates have endured “The Nightmare Of Being“. Assisted by Jens Bogren, Andy La Rocque and Per Stålberg during the recording, the album was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Amon Amarth, Opeth, Kreator) by Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with the band on “At War With Reality” comeback album from 2014. The album’s visual concept was developed by artist Eva Nahon. We reviewed the album earlier this week so if you want to know what we thought of it, check that out.

Vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant commented as follows: “One of the key tracks on the album, this one is really dark and haunting, with some classic old school AT THE GATES harmonies thrown in. I guess some of you have already read up on the concept of the album, this one is the introduction to said concept, introducing the main idea that mankind’s consciousness is the ghost of our nightmares, the plague that drives us to our own extinction. I am really happy that Patric Ullaeus got the chance to, once again, interpret the dark themes of our music with his video. He really gave this a special feeling, which I think goes really well with the theme of the abyss of the human soul. Today you can also, finally, listen to the whole album! Dive in! It is, as said before, the most rich, cinematic, textured, layered, progressive and dynamic album we have ever written. Thanks for listening!
