I’d dashing off for my (fucking) day job, so I’ll make this brief: At the Gates have just debuted a video for the song “Death And The Labyrinth” off their forthcoming album At War With Reality. It was directed by Patric Ullaeus , and here’s what vocalist Tompa Lindberg has to say about it:
“We had a very special idea about the kind of approach we wanted for the first video from ‘At War With Reality’. What we needed was someone gifted enough to throw himself artistically into the project full on. The lyrics to the song are very multi-layered and surreal, so we wanted someone to create a fevered dreamworld that went with the melancholic frustration and dramatic desperation that we feel comes across in the song. This is exactly what Patric has created for us. It’s his vision of the music and lyrics, which compliments the track perfectly in my opinion. I couldn’t be happier!”
Without further ado, watch and listen to “Death and the Labyrinth”. Please leave any reactions you may have in the Comments.
I like this new song too, more “thrash” than its previous, crushing, dramatic, grim, their comeback do not disappoint me at all!
Pretty mediocre in my opinion. It lacks the riff work and melody that At The Gates is known for, and nothing really stands out.
Dammit, now I gotta gather my internal organs back into me again after that evisceration. Should’ve kept some sutures handy.
i love this song 🙂 but the video was just kind of so-so, for me.
I could take it or leave it, the film clip does nothing for me. Still am keen to hear the album. Sometimes for me songs that ‘grow’ on me do so in the context of the album flow.
