At The Gates reveal new album details

Posted in Metal, Misc., News, Studio Report on 1st March 2018 by izaforestspirit

Swedish melodic death metal band At The Gates have recently announced that their new album, the follow up to ‘At War With Reality’, will be called ‘To Drink from the Night Itself’.

The cover was designed by the Romanian artist and musician Costin Alexandru Chioreanu. Here’s an extract from the official statement by the band’s front-man Tomas Lindberg about the artwork and the theme:

“The inspiration for the actual front cover piece is taken from the Pergamon Altar, on display at the Pergamon museum in Berlin. It is of course linked closely to the concept that the whole record is based upon, but more on that later. But I will throw a name out there, for the interested ones; Peter Weiss.
I can’t wait to get the whole record in my hands now, as this is just one of the many great artwork pieces that Costin has created for us on “To Drink From The Night Itself“…”
