At The Gates To Release “The Mirror Black” 7″ & “With The Pantheons Blind” Digital EP

At The Gates will be releasing two new EPs on January 11. They include a limited seven-inch EP titled “The Mirror Black” and a digital EP titled “With The Pantheons Blind.”

The seven-inch will feature the title tack and “Daggers Of Black Haze,” both of which include guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross). Here’s the available options:

  • Black vinyl (limited to 400 copies, CM Distro Europe wholesale & online shop)
  • Golden vinyl (limited to 100 copies, CM Europe online shop)
  • Clear vinyl (limited to 300 copies, CM Distro Europe wholesale & online shop)
  • Transparent Red vinyl (limited to 200 copies, exclusively from the band on tour).

Tomas Lindberg said the following about the seven-inch:

“The idea of getting guest vocalists on board for the bonus tracks for the album was us trying something new again… This time we wanted to get other artists involved in our music, getting their takes on our new songs. It was a pleasure working with everybody and all songs grew immensely in the process. The songs we did with Rob Miller was for me personally something extra. Of course, people who know me know that I am a massive Amebix fan. And I love the more recent stuff with Tau Cross too. I had no idea what to expect. But the songs grew so goddamn much together with Rob’s powerful voice. We decided early on that these versions were worthy of their own release. This is for me personally one of the greatest achievements of my career, to share the vocal space with one of my favorite vocalists of all time. I am so proud of this release. Hope everyone else gets as much joy out of it as I do.”

As for the digital EP, it will come with six bonus songs from the “To Drink From The Night Itself” sessions. Here’s the track listing:

01. “Daggers Of Black Haze” (Featuring Amebix’s Rob Miller)

04. “Raped By The Light Of Christ” (2018)

At The Gates Premiere “Daggers Of Black Haze” Music Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for their new song “Daggers Of Black Haze.” This track is from the band’s new album, “To Drink From The Night Itself,“ which will be released on May 18.

Frontman Tomas Lindberg commented:

“Daggers of Black Haze” represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”

At The Gates Premiere “A Stare Bound In Stone” Music Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for their new song “A Stare Bound In Stone.” This track is from the band’s new album, “To Drink From The Night Itself,“ which will be released on May 18.

Frontman Tomas Lindberg commented:

“”For the second single release of the album, we wanted this menacing stormer, fast, aggressive verses, heavy chorus and an evil mantra of an ending. This, for me, depicts the desperate, urgent mood of the record. I think it could be one of the most aggressive songs we have ever written.

This album is so diverse and includes so much different elements that it is hard to boil down those essences to just one song. This song has a lot of them though; more to come soon.

For the video shoot, we wanted to work with Costin [Chioreanu] on this one, as he is an essential part of this record. We felt that he knew exactly what kind of emotions we wanted to get across, and how to capture them artistically. I see this video as a brilliant complement to the song. Enjoy!”
