At The Gates share video for The Nightmare of Being title track; album listening party premieres today

Band: At The Gates
Song: “The Nightmare of Being”
Director: Patric Ullaeus (Arch Enemy, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir)
Album: The Nightmare of Being
Release Date: July 2nd, 2021
Label: Century Media Records

Vocalist Tomas Lindberg states:

“One of the key tracks on the album, this one is really dark and haunting, with some classic old school At The Gates harmonies thrown in. I guess some of you have already read up on the concept of the album, this one is the introduction to said concept, introducing the main idea that mankind’s consciousness is the ghost of our nightmares, the plague that drives us to our own extinction. I am really happy that Patric Ullaeus got the chance to, once again, interpret the dark themes of our music with his video. He really gave this a special feeling, which I think goes really well with the theme of the abyss of the human soul. Today you can also, finally, listen to the whole album! Dive in! It is, as said before, the most rich, cinematic, textured, layered, progressive and dynamic album we have ever written. Thanks for listening!”

Additionally, today, the group will have a free livestream listening party of The Nightmare of Being. Lindberg himself will participate in the chat for this exclusive album premiere. The event begins at 11:00 AM PDT/2:00 PM EDT/8:00 PM CEST.
