Published Sep 22, 2014The wait for new At the Gates material has almost hit the two-decade mark, but the Swedish death metal unit are on the verge of dropping their At War with Reality. Ahead of the October 28 North American due date via Century Media, the band are now streaming the destructive title track.
For anyone craving that classic Gothenburg flavour, the song should not disappoint. Hallmark touches like a furious one-two thrash beat and melodic, triplet-style guitar lines figure big in the piece, as well as vocalist Tomas Lindberg's familiar, tormented cries. There are some crunchier, mosh-styled moments and a spoken-word passage placed above the riffery.
Metal fans: You don't have to pinch yourself. You're not dreaming. This is legit. You can stream "At War with Reality" down below.
