AT THE GATES graces cover of Decibel Magazine’s November issue





On October 27th, “Gothenburg style” melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES will release their first new album in 19 years, At War With Reality, which was recorded with the classic line-up of their latest masterpiece, Slaughter Of The Soul (1995). Never compromising their vision, At War With Reality 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 upcoming effort continues that tradition after 19 years of anticipation. With this long-awaited album, “the greatest Swedish Death Metal band ever reclaims their rightful throne” (Decibel Magazine).

For an in-depth interview with AT THE GATES about At War With Reality, be sure to purchase Decibel Magazine’s November issue, which features the band as the cover story. This special issue is now available on newsstands and online for $6 at the official Decibel store:
