Further promoting their acclaimed current album “To Drink From The Night Itself”, Swedish melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates have now started a massive European tour together with Behemoth and Wolves In The Throne Room.
At The Gates are now also releasing both a strictly limited 7″ EP entitled “The Mirror Black“ and a special Digital EP entitled “With The Pantheons Blind“ today.
Enhancing the release of the EP’s, At The Gates are also debuting a video clip for the track “The Mirror Black” in the version featuring guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross). The clip was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media, who also is also responsible for the artwork duties of the entire “To Drink From The Night Itself” release. The video can now be seen here
AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg checked in with the following comment :
“When we decided that we wanted to release the two Rob Miller tracks on a separate 7″, we felt that ‘The Mirror Black‘ was worthy of its own video. Costin was already excited about the idea, and I explained the basic outlines of the idea of the song. Working with Costin always brings in another dimension to our music and my lyrics; so he did his own interpretation of the main theme of the song. I am super happy with the result, I really think that this is one of the best videos AT THE GATES have ever done. There are a lot of hidden meanings and other symbolism in this clip, so you can watch it many times and still find new stuff. We as a band are super excited about this release!”
The new 7“ EP features the two songs “The Mirror Black” and “Daggers Of Black Haze” off At The Gates‘ current album “To Drink From The Night Itself” in the versions that come with guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross).
