At The Gates is seven albums deep into their career, three of which came after their reunion in 2010. In an interview with Chaoszine, At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg said he’s most proud of the band’s 2014 debut reunion album At War With Reality. Lindberg said he likes his vocals on the record and feels At The Gates rose to the expectations of fans after not releasing any new music in nearly 20 years at that point.
“It’s hard to say, but I think the one I’m most proud of is the comeback album with At The Gates – At War With Reality – because there was a lot of pressure,” said Lindberg. “People were looking really closely at what we were doing because [they wanted to see] ‘should they come back or not?’ And then it got good reviews and stuff like that.
“I mean to be honest I was almost afraid of the vocals. I mean I’ve been singing on a lot of other records, but that was the first At The Gates in a long time. I knew I was a better vocalist than back in the day technically, but would the fans expect it to have this old-school sound? I don’t know. So yeah. I really just focus and try to see if I can do my best, but I’m really happy about it now.”
At The Gates is currently working on their first new album with guitarist Anders Björler since At War With Reality. Björler quit the band in 2017 and rejoined in 2022 after the departure of guitarist Jonas Stålhammar.
