Swedish melodic death metal veterans At The Gates premiere an animated music video for “Garden Of Cyrus“, which is taken from the band’s latest record, “The Nightmare Of Being“.

Comments frontman Tomas Lindberg Redant:

“For our latest video, ‘Garden Of Cyrus‘, we have once again chosen to work with our long-time partner Costin Chioreanu. And I think it is safe to say that this time he has truly outdone himself! It is a different song, at least in death metal terms, and of course it needed a different idea for the video.

Once again, we let Costin do his own interpretation of the music and the lyrics, and he has taken us on a real psychedelic journey with this one. I think this is the song on our latest album ‘The Nightmare Of Being‘ that raised the most eyebrows in the metal community. And I am proud that we as a band can still surprise people, adding another dimension to our sound, without losing the essence of what At The Gates is.”

The band will be out in North America on a tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of their classic 1995 release “Slaughter Of The Soul“. Municipal Waste, Thrown Into Exile and Enforced will join them as supports.
