At The Gates Posts US Tour Diary #2

At The Gates has posted the second part of their tour diary, chronicling their reunion tour across the U.S. with Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust.

"Almost a week into the tour now...

"Today, we hit Chicago around noon. It's great to be back. The hometown of awesome bands like Master/Deathstrike, Devastation, Terminal Death, Macabre, Sindrome etc; and today hosting greats such as the amazing Nachtmystium! We invited the Devastation dudes to the show tonite, so perhaps a cover version of Cranial Hemorrhage? Hehe ;D

"It's an early show today; then off to the afterparty at Kumas where the official At the gates-burger is introduced tonight. Adrian is sooo happy...

"The last two Canadadian shows were great. Last night in Toronto was sold out and they really packed the place full. During the Municipal Waste show the crowd produced the best "wall of death" i..ve seen in a good while!

"We also added an extra song to the set: Unto others, after Dave Witte (From the Waste) had been at us for a while about that song...and the response was killer. Toxic Holocaust played on an afterparty at Catacombs in Montreal; a great punk bar run by the awesome Janick from After The Bombs. Toxic played a great set and the whole touring family had a good evening. I..m pretty sure I even saw Anders in the pit!

"There are some pictures from the Montreal show online. Check them out here.

"The Worcester show was fun too, with friends from Hope Conspiracy, Killswitch Engage etc hanging out and making the night special. It's a hard venue to play since it's an old theatre made totally out of concrete. The sound is very bouncy and all you hear is the echo from the back of the hall hitting you onstage with some milliseconds delay. Anyway, this was probably the best sounding Worcester gig (on stage) ever, and people were insane. Good times indeed."

More photos from the road are also available on the original blog post.

At The Gates Posts US Tour Update

At The Gates has posted the first of their US tour diary entries from their US tour with Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust:

"We arrived this Tuesday in New York. I (Anders) got in to JFK and took the bus across town to meet the other guys @ Newark airport.

"Our sound engineer Bo missed his connecting flight out of Amsterdam, and on top of that his bag was a.w.o.l upon arrival in JFK. And if that wasn't enough, he got an ear infection resulting in high fever, massive pain & distorted mono hearing. He seemed slightly better today. Got his bag from the airport and everything, but he's still feeling pretty shit.

"The first two gigs at Irving plaza were amazing. It was great to see the other bands on the bill enjoying some great crowd response, It was my (Tomas) impression that all bands have had really good gigs so far. The first gig was without AC, so it was like 120 degrees on stage :/

"We are enjoying this tour a lot so far, and it's amazing to see the crowd response after 12 years of silence. Thanks to all the people coming out and making this a special event."

You can check out some photos from the tour on At The Gates' MySpace blog as well.

Earache Thrash Pack Kicks Rock Band Players' Asses

Earache Records has issued the following statement on their recently released "Earache Thrash Pack" for the game "Rock Band:"

"It was warned that the newly-released EARACHE Thrash Pack for ROCK BAND would be the hardest tracks that the game had to offer and that was no lie.

"The ROCK BAND rockers community (http://www.rockband.com/rockers_home)has been absolutely THRASHED and SHREDDED to the bone in their many attempts to play the AT THE GATES classic, "Blinded By Fear" and THE HAUNTED's "D.O.A." Judging by the comments on the official ROCK BAND forums, however, out of all of the songs in the pack, EVILE's "Thrasher" seems to have given players their greatest challenge yet. Here's what some of the most hardcore ROCK BAND players in the world have to say about it:

"This satisfies my extreme metal wants for a long, long, long time. That time will be spent putting ointment on my blistered fingers due to Thrasher, no doubt." - Chief Stubbs

"Got my butt kicked in solo 2 of Thrasher." - JoshuaNeff

"Thrasher: DEAR FREAKING LORD! This song is so frikkin insane it's not even funny...When I saw the first solo I nearly crapped my pants." - Xerosnake90

"Thrasher's quick changes between beats are seriously challenging" - Contrapulator

"If you're the type who says that talk is cheap, then let these killer videos of all 3 songs show you what's got the ROCK BAND community buzzing: More...
