At The Gates The Red In The Sky Is Ours on 180g LP
Formed in Gothenburg from the ashes of Grotesque, At The Gates was one of the finest bands to explode out of their native Swedish death metal scene. The style of the band evolved into technical brutality of the highest order and after extensive tours with the likes of Bolt Thrower and Massacre word soon spread and it wasn't long before UK underground label Peaceville Records offered them a deal.
Their debut album The Red In The Sky Is Ours was originally released in 1991 on Peaceville/Deaf to widespread acclaim, the inclusion of violin sounds ensured that the album scored points for originality, and was innovatively offset by the intensely brutal yet melodic sound with standout track "Kingdom Gone" becoming a universal favorite.
The Red In The Sky Is Ours is raw with intense aggression and questioning misanthropy, bringing to mind the ultimate killing machine that is Voivod. A must have album for anyone with even the smallest interest in the ever evolving extreme metal scene. Peaceville/Snapper Music is pleased to offer the slab of brutal melodic death metal from the highly influential Swedish masters on heavyweight 180g vinyl.
