At The Gates Goes Animated On Their New Video For “Garden of Cyrus”

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on August 4, 2022

The Slaughter of the Soul Anniversary tour with Municipal Waste, Enforced and Thrown Info Exile begins later this month.

Swedish melodeath masters At The Gates have revealed a new animated music video for “Garden of Cyrus” off of their most recent studio album The Nightmare Of Being. The video was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media and features haunting imagery to accompany the saxophone laden track.

The band comments: “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.”

At The Gates will be touring throughout North America and Europe for a mammoth amount of dates. First they will embark on a string of special anniversary dates of Slaughter of the Soul with Municipal Waste and Thrown Into Exile, followed by continuing throughout August with Municipal Waste and Enforced. Then they cross the pond to support In Flames in November along with Imminence and Orbit Culture.

Tomas Lindberg Redant adds about the upcoming tour, “We are very excited about finally, being able to play in front of our European fans in support of our latest album ‘The Nightmare Of Being’. This time we will hit the road with our long-time friends In Flames. It’s such a weird fact that we have actually never toured together, although we are from the same town! So this will be a great opportunity to experience “The Gothenburg sound”, and it is awesome to be part of such a strong package. We can’t wait to get out there again!”
