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)
05. “The Chasm” (Demo Version)
06. “The Mirror Black” (Featuring Amebix’s Rob Miller)

Zao To Release New 7 Inch, Working On New Album

Zao have shared a new band update that covers several releases including their recent split with Yashira and Tragic Hero Records’ “The Funeral Of God“ reissue. Aside from those, the post also mentioned that the band will be releasing a new 7″ titled “Decoding Transmissions From The Möbius Strip” in two different vinyl variants (limited to 400 each) and that guitarist Scott Mellinger will be finishing his parts on the group’s new album in the near future.

Here’s the band’s full message:

Updates:

1) We are expecting the Yashira split to show up relatively soon and all copies will go out immediately. There are still a few red and blue copies hanging in there but not many.

2) Last we heard Tragic Hero records is trying desperately to get at the VERY least the copies of Funeral of God that have been pre-ordered manufactured and sent out as soon as possible. We would not expect this to happen within 2018. This release has essentially been out of our hands since we handed over the new masters and our art instructions. Aside from that we had nothing to do with the pre-orders nor can we personally reach out to the buyers as we do not have this info and everything went through Tragic Hero. We are massively sorry. Never again.

3) We will have a new 7 inch out (featuring 2 new songs that will be exclusive to this release – and like the track from the Yashira split will NOT be on our next album) probably at the tail end of 2018 or very early 2019. It is called Decoding Transmissions From The Möbius Strip. Two variants. approx 400 of each. No pre-orders on this. After this year’s pre-order fiasco it will be an immediate shipping once we put it up.

4) Scott is heading into the studio this week to finish up guitars for our new album. we are hoping for a 2019 release for this.
