At the Gates
At the Gates was an extreme metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, and a major progenitor of the Gothenburg death-metal sound. Their early albums lean towards a death metal sound, but later albums (especially Slaughter of the Soul) sound more like melodic death metal. Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour before breaking up once again in 2008. In December 2010, they reunited again, but have no plans to tour extensively or record new material.
