2021 Best of Metal: #16 At The Gates-The Nightmare of Being

Origin: Gothenberg, Sweden

Release date: 7/2/2021

Personnel: Tomas Lindberg-vox, Martin Larsson-guitar, Jonas Stalhammar-guitar, Anders Bjoler-bass, Adrian Erlandsson-drums

At The Gates is back with album number three since their reunion. The first two albums they put out after getting back together were straight up traditional At The Gates death metal. On this latest release, it was as if they were feeling a need to stretch their creative legs a bit. They’ve worked in some fairly melodic parts, some spoken word segues and even a bit of saxophone. These changes brought a bit of fresh air to the band’s sound and has resulted in one of their stronger albums.

The list so far:

16. At The Gates-The Nightmare of Being
17. The Vintage Caravan-Monuments
18. Nervosa-Perpetual Chaos
19. Baest-Necro Sapiens
20. Agrypnie-Metamorphosis
