At the Gates: At War with Reality


To celebrate the start of their worldwide touring campaign, Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES are now presenting a new video for the track “Heroes And Tombs”, which comes from their comeback studio album and Century Media Records debut, At War With Reality. The stunning animated clip was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media, who also designed the artwork for the album. Watch “Heroes And Tombs” here:

AT THE GATES vocalist and lyricist Tomas Lindberg comments: “I am very proud to be able to present the second video from ‘AWWR’, ‘Heroes And Tombs’. To have Costin work on one of our songs this way has been very rewarding. It’s like the next step of the album artwork, and basically more than I could have ever hoped for. Costin paints up a fevered and dark nightmare world that complements the lyrics and music up to the point of perfection. Now I just have to go convince him to do a full length movie for the whole album… ;-)”

For another preview of At War With Reality, be sure to check out the video for “Death And The Labyrinth”, which was directed by Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, LACUNA COIL, etc.) here:
