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.
