At The Gates
At the Gates is a Swedish metal band from Gothenburg, and a major progenitor of the melodic death metal (or Gothenburg death metal) sound.
Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour before breaking up once again in 2008. However, they reformed for a second time in December 2010, and have since continued to perform live. The band will release At War with Reality, their first album in 19 years, in late 2014.
Created in May 2008 to further develop the darkness invoked by its immediate precursors, seminal black/extreme metal pioneers Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, Triptykon evolved from a Celtic Frost side project initiated by Tom Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom G Warrior), the group's singer, guitarist, and main songwriter.
Old school? New school?
Don't even go there; Morbus Chron is one of those rare groups that didn't go to school. In a climate of trends and conformity, these guys stand out as one of the most authentic and unique extreme metal bands today. Among the vibrant new wave of Swedish death metal, they are arguably one of the most original bands of all. With their new album "Sweven", Morbus Chron is about to redefine death metal for a new era. They are the real deal, and they are surely here to stay – you’d better start paying attention!
