Average Rating:

Hometown: Gothenburg (Sweden)


At the Gates is a Swedish death metal band from Gothenburg, and a major progenitor of the melodic death metal (or Gothenburg death metal) sound.

Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour before breaking up once again in 2008. However, they reformed for a second time in December 2010, and have since continued to perform live. The band released At War with Reality, their first album in 19 years, in late 2014.
