At The Gates Releases Video Clip For New Song 'A Stare Bound In Stone', New Album Details

Swedish melodic Death Metal pioneers At The Gates released a video clip for the new song "A Stare Bound In Stone." The song appears on the upcoming new album “To Drink From The Night Itself,” which will see worldwide release date will be May 18th via Century Media Records.

Pre-orders can be made at this location.

Conceptually, "To Drink From The Night Itself" originated with German writer Peter Weiss and his novel, "The Aesthetics Of Resistance." The idea was to capture the desperation of a struggle or resistance, where victory is unachievable yet the fight presses on. Lindberg also was enlivened by Weiss’ discussion of art—all forms—via his characters and its various uses, either as a weapon of oppression or as a signal of opposition. As witnessed throughout history, art has been and will be labeled unfairly decadent or ridiculously triumphant or secretly obstructionist.

The album was recorded in three studios. The vocals were captured by Per Stålberg and Olle Björk at Welfare Studios in Gothenburg over a three-week period, while the rest of the music—drums, bass, and guitar—were recorded by producer Russ Russell at Parlour Recording Studios in the UK over a two-week session. The strings—cello, violin, and double bass—were then tracked by Martin Jacobson at Rovljud Studios in Örebro. The entire effort was produced by Jonas [Björler], Lindberg, and Russell over three weeks, with Russell taking an additional two weeks to mix and master.

“We want to be creative in the death metal genre. The limits are what keep us alive. We wanted to push those limits on To Drink from The Night Itself. This is a big album, we had to pursue it.” commented vocalist Tomas “Tompa” Lindberg.
