Swedish metal icons At the Gates have officially announced the release date of their first studio record since 1995's "Slaughter of the Soul."
Titled "At War With Reality," the album is due on October 28 via Century Media Records. Apart from the release date, the band has also unveiled cover artwork, several confirmed song titles, as well as a few comments from vocalist Tomas Lindberg regarding the album's lyrical concepts.
"The concept of 'At War With Reality' is based on the literary genre called 'Magic Realism.' The main style within this genre is the notion that 'reality' is ever-changing, and needs to be constantly re-discovered and re-conquered. We felt that Costin [Chioreanu]'s artwork style would be the perfect visual contribution to this album, so he became the natural choice," the singer stated.
