At The Gates Announces European Tour

Swedish death metal legends At The Gates have announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of Europe this December, their first in nearly twenty years. They will be joined on the trek by Triptykon and Morbus Chron. Speaking about the tour, vocalist Tomas Lindberg stated:

"We are very excited for this tour. It will be our first proper tour of Europe since 1996. As we have been playing only festivals in Europe since the reunion in 2008, this will be the first chance for us to meet the fans of Europe in a more intimate environment. Playing live for our own crowd, our own people in smaller clubs is something that is essential to us as a band and we are looking forward to finally being able to deliver a full At The Gates show in this setting, without having to work around the schedules and conditions of bigger festivals. It will also be the first time ever that we will be able to present some new compositions in a live setting - as the new album will be released by then. It's hard and uncompromising and I think the new songs will work great live next to the old songs.

"As for going out together with Triptykon, we couldn't be more thrilled. I have always looked upon the work of Thomas Gabriel Fischer as a great source of inspiration. From naming my first band, Grotesque after a line in a Celtic Frost song back in 1988, to the mighty comeback with his new reincarnation with Triptykon. Seeing them live every day for three weeks will be mind-blowing. More...

Morbus Chron has posted a cover of Autopsy's "Mauled to Death" online, which can be heard in the player below. The band also commented:

"While recording 'Creepy Creeping Creeps', we decided to do a cover of 'Mauled to Death'. Seeing how it never got the attention it deserved, we felt it was the right thing to do. Annoyingly enough there wasn't room for it on the 7".

"Autopsy just re-recorded the track and reminded us that we had our own version just laying there, unheard. So to celebrate them, here is our take on one of their best songs." More...

Morbus Chron Comments On New EP

Swedish death metal act Morbus Chron recently conducted an interview with Viceland Music, in which the band announced some new details an the upcoming "Creepy Creeping Creeps" EP and a new full-length album. An excerpt from the interview follows.

VM: Why do you think death metal has made such a big comeback in recent years?

Morbus Chron: For us, we started the band and for some reason we just digged the old ways of death metal. It wasn’t because of bands like Repugnant and Kaamos. I can’t point out any specific reason other than that it was really fun to play and you felt fucking evil screaming your lungs out, going “ZOOOOMBIE RIIIIITUAAAAAAAAL!”. Right now, as the scene is growing, I guess it’s because people realise that this is a damn great way to show off your creativity in a raw and unpolished way.

VM: You are currently recording a new EP, correct? Any info?

Morbus Chron: That’s right dude! “Creepy Creeping Creeps”. It’s going to be released from the depths in September by Detest Records, the same month that we start the recording of the full-length, so it’ll be like a pre-album release. I’m excited as hell, the artwork by Rafal Kruszyk is killer, and the songs are the Morbus you know, with that Mayhem riff-stealing that separates us from the rest of the bunch, he he. You don’t really need to know more. It’s gonna be cool.
