At The Gates — At War With Reality

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★★ Is this another shameless reunion grab? Perhaps. But this latest helping of that sweet, sweet Gothenburg melodeath is certainly satisfying and it goes down so smooth. At times, it’s reminiscent of Opeth, of The Haunted, of a few bands that have come and gone since the last time At The Gates put out an album. But the band are also eager to show their musical ambitions with a few surprises up their sleeves, even as they’re dutifully kicking your teeth in. A must-listen.
