Swedish melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates have been confirmed for next year's edition of the Metaltown festival, set to take place June 17-18, 2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
* System Of A Down * At The Gates * Cradle Of Filth * Parkway Drive * Raubtier
Commented At The Gates in a statement: "At The Gates will do a limited run of select shows in 2011. Simply put, we had the time of our lives during the 2008 reunion and have decided to do a couple of more shows. Although we won't be touring extensively, and we stick to the initial promise of not making any more music."
At The Gates' "The Flames Of The End" DVD was released on April 6 in the U.S. through Earache Records.
At The Gates released its definitive album, "Slaughter Of The Soul" often regarded as one of the all-time greatest metal albums on Earache in 1995, before touring the world and abruptly disbanding. Members of the band went on to play major roles in other notorious metal acts such as The Haunted and Cradle Of Filth, before reforming for a one-off tour in 2008 to rapturous response.
