Swedish melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates are set to release THE FLAMES OF THE END, a brand new 3-disc DVD set, through Earache Records.
AT THE GATES released their definitive album, SLAUGHTER OF THE SOUL – often regarded as one of the all-time greatest metal albums – on Earache in 1995, before touring the world and abruptly disbanding. Members of the band went on to play major roles in other notorious metal acts such as THE HAUNTED and CRADLE OF FILTH, before reforming for a one-off tour in 2008 to rapturous response.
Now, to celebrate AT THE GATES’ massively influential career and historical reunion tour, the band will be releasing THE FLAMES OF THE END, an extensive, in-depth and definitive 3-disc DVD set on February 22nd, 2010.
Housed in a deluxe six-panel DVD digipak with a 40-page colour booklet, THE FLAMES OF THE END will include three indispensable DVDs:
Disc 1 ‘Under A Serpent Sun – The Story of At The Gates’ – a brand new
documentary with a running time of over 2 hours, detailing the band’s entire career with exclusive interviews and footage, filmed and directed by guitarist Anders Bjorler.
Disc 2 ‘Purgatory Unleashed – Live at Wacken’ – a 75-minute live set from
the band’s reunion set at the Wacken festival in 2008 in front of 100,000
Disc 3 ‘Only the Dead Are Smiling’ – 26 rare and archive live performances
of the band playing in locations around the globe from 1991 – 2008.
