AT THE GATES’ Jonas Björler (bass) comments: “We have finally reached the moment for the unveiling of a first full brand new AT THE GATES song! We have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this record for the past year, and we are very happy to now present you the title track of ‘At War With Reality’. Let the journey begin…”

With the classic line-up of their latest masterpiece, Slaughter Of The Soul (1995), AT THE GATES recorded At War With Reality with Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman (IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, DIMMU BORGIR) and mixed with Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KREATOR). 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; At War With Reality 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).
