Earache Records will be reissuing the classic AT THE GATES album, Slaughter of the Soul, as a DualDisc CD/DVD. The CD side of the DualDisc will contain the original 11-song album, while the DVD side was filmed on March 5, 2006. Earache arranged for the old members of AT THE GATES (Tomas Lindberg – vocals, Anders Björler – lead guitar, Martin Larsson – rhythm guitar, Jonas Björler – bass, Adrian Erlandsson – drums) to gather together at Studio Fredman in Gothenberg, Sweden to be filmed for a documentary-style DVD by acclaimed video director Patrick Ullaeus (LACUNA COIL, CHILDREN OF BODOM, DIMMU BORGIR, EVERGREY).
Here’s what an Earache representative said about the project: “AT THE GATES are not scheduled to actually ‘play’ anything (sadly) ??” but instead will talk on camera about the making of the legendary album and the band’s history. Original producer of the album, Fredrik Nordström, will be playing back songs from the multi-tracks masters for the fans to hear and band to reminisce about. It should be essential viewing for any fan, and a history lesson in the making of a groundbreaking CD which set the Gothenberg scene alight on its original release in 1995.”
