Release date: October 27, 2014

At The Gates‘ 1995 album Slaughter of the Soul is considered by many experts to be one of the most pivotal moments in death metal history. Decibel Magazine went so far as to label it “the most influential death metal album of the next decade.” That recording, despite being the band’s fourth release, is among the very first to feature the sound that would come to be known as melodic death metal or “the Gothenburg sound,” a reference to the city in Sweden that spawned At The Gates and their equally influential contemporaries, In Flames.

It is also a record that most thought would serve as At The Gates’ epitaph. In 1996, only a year after its release, the band split acrimoniously when brothers Anders (guitar) and Jonas Bjorler (bass) decided to leave and form The Haunted. The rest of the band resented them for leaving at the height of their success, but decided that At The Gates could not continue without them.

Long-time fans of Arch Enemy were alarmed when the band’s iconic vocalist Angela Gossow announced this past April that she would be leaving the band. Gossow released a statement saying that she would be staying on as the band’s business managerm but would be “passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.”

White-Gluz had been the singer of Canadian metal band The Agonist for ten years prior where she applied her wide vocal range across a broad spectrum from raw gutturals to beautiful and pristine clean singing. Arch Enemy fans were concerned that the new singer’s presence would mark a shift towards the lighter fare.

Those concerns were eased only days after Gossow’s announcement when the band dropped the video for the bruising title track of their tenth studio album, War Eternal.

Watch the official video for “War Eternal” here below.

On October 27th, Swedish melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates will release their comeback album At War With Reality. The disc is one of metal’s most anticipated releases in recent memory and the first from At The Gates in 19 years. Personally, I already woke up in a giddy mood because I will be receiving an advance copy of the record later today. So imagine my excitement upon discovering that today also marks the release of the first official video from the album.

“Death and the Labyrinth” is the opening track of At War With Reality and it does not disappoint.

Release date: August 5, 2014

I find it very suspect anytime that a band says “This is our last (album, tour, whatever).” Especially when said band is essentially a one-man project. It’s much easier for one person to change their mind after a little while (looking at you, Corgan).

That’s exactly the case with Nachtmystium, who are preparing to release what was being billed as their “final” record The World We Left Behind. Sure, there has been a revolving door of personnel throughout the band’s thirteen-year history, but Nachtmystium is, for all intents and purposes, Blake Judd.

Nachtmystium Not Breaking Up; Release First Single From ‘The World We Left Behind’

Blake Judd Mugshot

Nachtmystium has released “Tear You Down,” the first single from what was being billed as their final record The World We Left Behind. Listen to “Tear You Down” here below.

Well, it turns out that the whole “final record” thing may have been a bit premature. On November 13, 2013, shortly after being arrested on charges of misdemeanor theft by unauthorized control of property, singer/guitarist Blake Judd issued a statement that he would be disbanding Nachtmystium after completion of the band’s seventh studio album, The World We Left Behind, which will be released on August 5, 2014. The singer/guitarist, who had always had a penchant for drug use, injured his leg back in 2009 and was prescribed Oxycodone for the pain. As a result, he developed a violent dependency to the drug and moved on up to a full-blown heroin addiction. It is alleged that the theft charges were a direct result of his habit. His stated reason for dissolving the band was to get away from the music business and work on getting his life back on track.
