At The Gates is a band from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Originally formed in 1990 after Grotesque broke up, the band played a very original and unique style of technical death metal which can be found on the earlier releases, while their later releases were more melodic and the structures of the songs were less complex. After releasing The Red in the Sky Is Ours in 1992, main songwriter and guitarist Alf Svensson left the band because of his loss of interest on the project. One year later, With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness was released. Still, most of the guitar riffs were written by Alf Svensson. After the release of Terminal Spirit Disease, last album to include some riffs written by Alf Svensson, At the Gates decided to cut all the innovative, unique, technical aspects of their earlier material, focusing on writing catchier, less intricate songs for Slaughter of

AT THE GATES We Are Connected / Language of the Dead

Split · 2015 · Melodic Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"We Are Connected / Language of the Dead" is a split single release by Canadian thrash/progressive metal act Voivod and Swedish melodic death metal act At the Gates. The single was released through Century Media Records in March 2015. At the time Voivod´s "We Are Connected" track was exclusive to this release (it has since been included on the 2016 "Post Society" EP). "Language of the Dead" is not exclusive to this single but still a relatively rare track, as it´s only included on the limited edition of "At War with Reality (2014)" (At the Gates comeback album).

While "Language of the Dead" is not included on the "regular" edition of "At War with Reality (2014)" it´s certainly not what you´d normally think of as an outtake track, as the quality is way too high for that. It´s a relatively fast-paced and melodic death metal track with great power and melodic hooks. "We Are Connected" is a pretty progressive oriented track from Voivod, which goes through many structural changes and atmospheres during it´s 7:37 minutes long playing time.

The sound productions on both tracks are professional and well sounding and both artists are very well playing too, so upon conclusion "We Are Connected / Language of the Dead" is a quality split single displaying some of the better quality contemporary material by both artists. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

UMUR
"At War with Reality" is the 5th full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act At The Gates. The album was released through Century Media Records in October 2014. At The Gates was originally active in the years 1990-1996 and are often credited as one of the early pioneers of the more melodic part of the Swedish death metal scene. After they disbanded in 1996 several members went on to form thrash metal act The Haunted (where some of the members are still active), but as the years went by and more and more upcoming artists have begun to mention At The Gates as a huge influence on their music, the demand for a reunion has steadily grown stronger. The band reunited and toured in the period 2007-2008, and the reunion was initially only meant to be temporary, but At The Gates reunited again in 2010, and after a couple of years, the inspiration to write new original material came to them. Probably also fueled by guitarist/main composer Anders Björler´s exit from The Haunted in 2012.

So "At War with Reality" is indeed a comeback album by At The Gates after a 19 year recording break since "Slaughter of the Soul (1995)". The lineup who recorded "Slaughter of the Soul (1995)" is intact featuring Jonas Björler on bass, Adrian Erlandsson on drums, Anders Björler on guitars, Tomas "Tompa" Lindberg on vocals, and Martin Larsson on guitars. It´s no surprise with a cast like that, that the music is delivered with high level skill and professionalism.

Stylistically "At War with Reality" doesn´t exactly take up where "Slaughter of the Soul (1995)" let go. Where the latter primarily focused on being aggressive, "At War with Reality" is a much more diverse release, drawing influences from all parts of the band´s discography. The riffs are both heavy, thrashy, more dark and death metal oriented, but always featuring a melodic sensibility, melodic harmony themes, or solos. There are also several clean guitar parts on the album, which provide the music with variation. The drumming is also varied featuring everything from heavy beats to mid-paced grooves, to faster paced parts. The vocals by Tomas "Tompa" Lindberg are rather distinct sounding and he is probably one of the most original growling vocalists on the scene. He growling vocals are a cross between regular death metal growling and a higher pitched tortured shouting (there are also a few spoken word sections). A bit hard to describe actually, but they are pretty surely an aquired taste.

The regular edition of the album features 13 tracks and a full playing time of 44:16, while the limited edition features two bonus tracks. It is highly recommended getting the version featuring the bonus tracks as they are both well worth the price of admission. Some versions also features a third additional bonus track in the Sacrifice cover "Re-Animation". "At War with Reality" is a concept album based on the literary genre called "Magic Realism" and the album comes with a 20-page booklet to further build on the overall experience and atmosphere of the release.

The material on the album are through and through high standard compositions. In addition to that "At War with Reality" features a great flow thanks to a well chosen tracklist, where fast paced melodic death metal tracks, are mostly followed by more heavy mid-paced compositions, or more atmospheric melodic oriented material. The tracks are generally not that long (most staying within the 2 - 4 minutes parameter), but "At War with Reality" is a prime example of getting the most out of relatively short tracks, without resorting to simple hook laden vers/chorus song structures. Not that there aren´t catchy hooks and clear vers/chorus structures in most tracks, but the tracks on the album feature many intriguing details, additional sections, and other clever compositional tricks, which elevate the music to an exceptionally high compositional level.

To top it all off "At War with Reality" features a powerful, clear, and detailed sound production which suits the material perfectly, so all in all this is a high quality release in all departments and a welcome comeback by At The Gates. A 4.5 star (90%) rating is fully deserved.

One of the pillars of melodic death metal, this album is more intense then In Flames' "The Jester Race" or Dark Tranquility's "The Gallery". I suppose depending on how much "melodic" or "death metal" you like will determine which of the 3 is your favorite. This album is the most intense of the 3 by far, while TJR is the lightest, and "The Gallery" is a good middle ground, maybe with the best songwriting.

I personally like this one the best. It is a good blend of the two, but still maintains outright death metal intensity. Intense is what this album is. There are two completely melodic songs, and the rest are quite fast...maintained by lots of blast beats. The slower parts are often backed by double bass drumming even. The riffing is fast and frantic, though simple. This is what does make it more melodic then normal death metal.

The solos are also very melodic, opposed to shred, there are slower melodic sections, and even some non metal sections. Also, there is no growling on this album but instead a more high pitched, (kind of raspy) screaming. There is real emotion behind them. OK, a lot of metal heads cringe at the thought of emotional lyrics...but really a real power and intensity is conveyed behind them. At the end of "Cold" when he yells "I FEEL MY SOUL GO COLD!" try not to get shivers.

Call it death metal lite if you want. Fast paced, simple riffing pushed by straightforward and intense drumming and topped off with soul wrenching yelling. This album may sacrifice the complexity and technicality, (and maybe some brutality) of regular death metal...but it does not sacrifice intensity and has some great twin guitar work. Only real downside is there is not really a standout song, and at times it can be a bit uninspired sounding.

Overall, great album. My favorite of the 3 classic melodeath albums, and probably the best of the entire sub genre. Four and a Half Stars

AT THE GATES Gardens of Grief

City of screaming guitars...

Genre: (progressive) death metal

There has always been a sense of artiness to At the Gates, which manifests itself in their cover artworks and in the structure of their music. Their first couple of releases were so complext, that some of the musicians who have worked with the band admitted that they had to take a lot of notes to keep up, and even their later, simpler melodic death metal releases, still contain a number of unexpected twists and turns.

The songs on "Gardens of Grief" are complex - too complex. Now, I like complex rock music, and I'm a big fan of progressive music, but complex music requires a sufficuant level of musicianship... and that's simply not there on this album. So, while there are plenty of good ideas here, one the whole, "Gardens of Grief" seems like a terrible musical mess, unstructured, incoherent and poorly executed. Then again, I admire the At the Gates guys for writing music that really challenged and tested themselves.

Another problem is poor production. There are times when the snare drum (especially in blast beat sections) is completely inaudible. And that's a shame, because, had the production been better, the album as a whole could have come across as being more coherent and solid.

AT THE GATES With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness

Raped by the sound of guitars...

Genre: progressive death metal (melodeath inklings)

While "The Red In The Sky Is Ours" is perhaps a bit too abstract and complex for some listeners, "With Fear I Kiss The Burning Darkness" is a much more structured and solid effort. Also, on the previous releases, At the Gates' skills and musicianship were not really on par with the creative ideas they had, which means that their output seemed to have a certain pretentiousness to it.

That's all gone here. On "With Fear I kiss The Burning Darkness", their musicianship has improved considerably, and musically, the album is still abstract and complex like the predecessors are, but it is executed at a much higher level. The songs seem more coherent and less clumsy than on the preceding releases, which means that the high level of compositional complexity is much easier to appreciate. Also, already here, there are inklings of the melodic death metal style that At the Gates would adopt on their last releases. This combination of complexity and melody works very well for this album.

I think that fans of progressive death metal would like this album, as would fans of good ole straight death metal.
