EDITORS’ NOTES

On their second album since reforming in 2010—and their first-ever without founding guitarist and primary songwriter Anders Björler—Swedish death-metal legends At the Gates remain as savage and melodic as ever. A classic horror-movie atmosphere permeates the album with tolling bells, chilling piano intros, and even an Omen-esque backing choir on “A Stare Bound in Stone.” Their signature galloping riffs abound on the ripping title track and the vicious “In Death They Shall Burn” as frontman Tomas Lindberg’s howl conjures the abyss.

Good

This album is good but it’s not quite as good as their last album IMO. I had to listen to it a couple of times before I really started to enjoy it but it has definitely grown on me the more I’ve listened to it.

Terrible sound quality

this album sounds like a friggin transcode (like it's streaming from dial-up network)! I can't get into it because of how awful the production is. I think At War with Reality is an amazing album. Too bad they didn't take production serious with this album :-/
