At The Gates launch a new single and video off their upcoming album, “The Nightmare of Being”. “The Fall Into Time” is the third single/video of the band’s new album, which will be released on July 2nd, 2021 via Century Media Records.
Check out the epic track “The Fall Into Time” in a video-clip directed by longtime At The Gates co-operator Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media (Arch Enemy, Grave, Borknagar, etc.).
Vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant commented on the single “The Fall Into Time” and its video as follows:
“Hello everybody! As you might have already guessed, this album is our most ambitious effort yet, including a lot of different orchestrations and new takes on arrangements, etc.
This track, “The Fall into Time” is one of the centerpieces of the album. It is big, demanding and epic. We have always found it intriguing to compose songs like these, think “Neverwhere”, “Primal Breath”, “The Night Eternal” and “Daggers of Black Haze”. It is heavy, mean and dark, as well as almost cinematic in its thematic approach. I have always said that the AT THE GATES listener wants to be challenged and that you hopefully all are as curious as we are when it comes to exploring new musical territory. This song is one of those moments… Enjoy! For the video for this more adventurous track we chose to work again with our dear friend and co-conspirator Costin Chioreanu, as we thought that it required a more arty and avantgarde approach. I was, as always, very intrigued to see what he would come up with, as he has a deep understanding of what AT THE GATES is about. He did not disappoint, and this video is a perfect complement to a song like this. Costin went all the way with this one. Truly inspiring!”.
While main parts for “The Nightmare Of Being” were recorded in Sweden at several different studios – Drums at Studio Gröndal with Jens Bogren, guitars and bass with Andy La Rocque at Sonic Train Studio and vocals at Welfare Sounds with Per Stålberg –, the album was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Amon Amarth, Opeth, Kreator, etc.) by Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with At The Gates on their “At War With Reality” comeback album from 2014. The album’s visual concept was developed by artist Eva Nahon.
