At The Gates Release New Video Clip For “The Mirror Black”

Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES have just kicked off their massive European tour with Behemoth and Wolves In The Throne Room in support of their recent acclaimed album To Drink From The Night Itself. In addition to the tour, the band have also released the limited edition 7″ EP, The Mirror Black, and the Digital EP, With The Pantheons Blind, today.
 
Topping it off, AT THE GATES are also debuting a video clip for the track “The Mirror Black” featuring guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross). The clip was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media, who also is also responsible for the artwork duties of the entire To Drink From The Night Itself release. Check out the video below.
When we decided that we wanted to release the two Rob Miller tracks on a separate 7″, we felt that ‘The Mirror Black’ was worthy of its own video,” states Tomas Lindberg (vocalist) about the release. “Costin was already excited about the idea, and I explained the basic outlines of the idea of the song. Working with Costin always brings in another dimension to our music and my lyrics; so he did his own interpretation of the main theme of the song. I am super happy with the result, I really think that this is one of the best videos AT THE GATES have ever done. There are a lot of hidden meanings and other symbolism in this clip, so you can watch it many times and still find new stuff. We as a band are super excited about this release!”
The 7″ EP features the two songs “The Mirror Black” and “Daggers Of Black Haze” off AT THE GATES’ current album To Drink From The Night Itself and feature guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross).

WATCH the video for “Daggers Of Black Haze” — created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media (who was also in charge of the album’s artwork concept)– below.

AT THE GATES frontman Tomas Lindberg comments on the track as follows:
Daggers of Black Haze” represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.
