Let’s get it out of the way first: no one is here for the video. It’s pretty decent, nicely shot and in an interesting location, but we’re all here for the music. At the Gates are facing one of the most expected comebacks in metal today, returning after many years to once again present us with their classic and fundamental approach to death metal. But will they be able to perform or has the genre moved past them? Head on over the jump to hear for yourself as another piece from the upcoming album is unveiled.
The obvious thing here is that the band are sticking to their guns. This is exactly what you’d expect when pressing play on an At the Gates track. And you know what? That’s totally fine. The screams are on point, as if no time has passed since Slaughter of the Soul and the rest of the track goes hard and goes death. That’s fine with me and I’m looking forward to blasting this album very soon.
