AT THE GATES & VOIVOD Take It Old School: Split 7″ EP

Having just wrapped up some touring in Asia, Scandinavia as well as through Spain, Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES will soon be back on the road again in support of their much acclaimed comeback studio album and Century Media Records debut, At War With Reality. First up, AT THE GATES will embark on the Decibel Magazine Tour together with CONVERGE, PALLBEARER and label-mates VALLENFYRE across North America, starting March 27th.

“Harbinger” — a follow up to MUTILATION RITES acclaimed underground debut “Empyrean” —  was released last summer via Prosthetic Records. Described as a “nightmarish merger between black, death, d-beat, and doom” (Pitchfork), the album was recorded by long-time friend and producer Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC) and mastered by James Plotkin (Pelican, Isis, SunnO))), Isis). Its eight tracks of “invigorating and nerve-wracking debauchery” (Dead Rhetoric) are perfectly accompanied visually by noted cover artist Valnoir (Psycroptic, Watain, The Black Dahlia Murder).
