AT THE GATES debuts video for "Death And The Labyrinth"

In anticipation of this release, AT THE GATES has now debuted a video for the album track "Death And The Labyrinth". Directed by Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, LACUNA COIL, etc.), the vibrant clip can be seen here:

Tomas Lindberg (vocals) comments: "We had a very special idea about the kind of approach we wanted for the first video from 'At War With Reality'. What we needed was someone gifted enough to throw himself artistically into the project full on. The lyrics to the song are very multi-layered and surreal, so we wanted someone to create a fevered dreamworld that went with the melancholic frustration and dramatic desperation that we feel comes across in the song. This is exactly what Patric has created for us. It's his vision of the music and lyrics, which compliments the track perfectly in my opinion. I couldn't be happier!"

Director Patric Ullaeus adds: "It's always nice to work with creative artists who are like-minded. Ideas seem to flow easily. We had a lot of fun making our vision come true. Being on these amazing locations in Antelope Canyon, Arizona was truly an unforgettable experience."

For another preview of At War With Reality, be sure to check out the album's title track:

Recorded with the classic line-up of their latest masterpiece, Slaughter Of The Soul(1995), At War With Reality marks AT THE GATES' first new release in 19 years. Never compromising their vision, At War With Reality is an album that once again captures the honesty and integrity that has defined AT THE GATES, making them one of the most significant extreme metal names of the past 25 years. True devotees have always been excited by the band's willingness to be diverse; this upcoming effort continues that tradition after 19 years of anticipation. With this long-awaited album, "the greatest Swedish Death Metal band ever reclaims their rightful throne" (Decibel Magazine).
