At The Gates Release First Single “Spectre of Extinction” Off ‘The Nightmare of Being’

 Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES release their first single, “Spectre of Extinction”, off their forthcoming album The Nightmare Of Being out July 2nd via Century Media Records. Check out the epic opening track, which features a guest lead-guitar appearance by King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque, via the album pre-order link HERE
Fans can tune in to the YouTube premiere of the video for “Spectre of Extinction”  April 30th at 12PM ET/9AM PT.

Additionally, the YouTube premiere will include a live chat with AT THE GATES vocalist, Tomas Lindberg Redant.
Tune in to the video premiere, directed by Patric Ullaeus / www.rEvolver.se (Arch Enemy, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, etc.), HERE.

 Tomas Lindberg Redant states, “It is always very hard to choose which song to release to the public first, especially with this album having so many layers and textures. We did feel, however, that this, the opening track of the record, represented the overall feel of the album. It has the musical depths that you would expect from an AT THE GATES track, and still carries that intensity and urgency that we have always tried to get across with our music.  For the video, it was wonderful to be able to continue the work with the mighty Patric Ullaeus, as he understands our vision with the music and is willing to go all the way to portray the song’s inner dimensions. I think he did that excellently with this one and I’m very proud of the result. The lyrics deal with humanity’s will and how that clashes with our consciousness, and our knowledge of our mortality. Enjoy!”
While main parts for The Nightmare Of Being were recorded in several different Swedish 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 previously worked with AT THE GATES on their 2014 comeback album At War With Reality


available for pre-order HERE.
