AT THE GATES (SWEDEN)


AT THE GATES are recognized as pioneers of the Gothenburg NWoSDT (New Wave of Swedish Death Metal) sound. A very aggressive technical Thrash act in the vein of America's finest, but with added twists and a touch of the avant-garde. At the Gates released only one official promo in 1991 and released a few other promos with no covers. As AT THE GATES the first product to emerge was the mini-album 'Gardens Of Grief' on Dolores Records in May 1991. The 'At The Gates' anthem was poignantly dedicated to late MAYHEM singer Dead (Per Yngve Ohlin), who had committed suicide that April. Svensson's involvement with AT THE GATES would be brief, as the man soon departed later, going on to form the extraordinary OXIPLEGATZ and releasing the 'Fairy Tales (Selatyriaf)' album in 1994 and 'Worlds And Worlds' in 1996. 'The Red In The Sky Is Ours', delivered in July 1992 and despite being an ultra-heavyweight affair, featured guest violinist Jesper Jarold.
