Melodic death metal masters At The Gates have completed their new album and reveal now the album title. The follow-up to 2014’s “At War With Reality” will be entitled “To Drink From The Night Itself” and will be released on May 18 via Century Media Records. The new At The Gates album is produced by Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Haunted, Dimmu Borgir) at Parlour Studios in the UK.
Vocalist Tomas Lindberg comments: “We have wrapped up the recordings of the new record, and we are super psyched! It has been a smooth process, and very creatively fullfilling. All people that we have worked with on this project have stepped up to our vision of the final product, and we are very excited about the result.
“As you might have seen, we have worked with Russ Russell on this one, and he is really a master of getting the most intense takes out of us, and also has an ear for the rawness that we were after for this one. The vocals were recorded with Per Stålberg here in Gothenburg, and he always makes me deliver to a 100 percent. Right now we are getting the mastering done, and every new song that is bounced to us produces huge grins on our faces. This album sounds hungry and mean.
“The title of our new record will be ‘To Drink From The Night Itself‘ and it is again a conceptual record. More details about the concept will be revealed once the album is more on its way. But it connects with the deep roots of the band, and has connections with some of the themes on ‘The Red In The Sky Is Ours‘.”
At The Gates 2018 line-up is as follows:
Adrian Erlandsson – Drums
Jonas Björler – Bass
Tomas Lindberg – Vocals
Jonas Stålhammar – Guitar
Martin Larsson – Guitar
