Extreme Metal Legends AT THE GATES has confirmed their only UK show of 2011 will take place at next years BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR.
We had such a blast during the 2008 reunion that we decided to do some more shows. States drummer Adrian Erlandsson. He continues, We had an amazing gig at Bloodstock in 2008 and are really looking forward to playing there again.
One of the most influential metal bands of the last 20 years, AT THE GATES made a permanent mark after 1995s Slaughter of the Soul album captured the imaginations of metal heads the world over. Taking the aggression of death metal and lacing it heavily with melody, the album was released to huge critical acclaim - including a Swedish Grammy nomination - and AT THE GATES looked set to take the world by storm. However disbanding in 1996 meant the next chapter was never written. The 12 years that passed left hundreds of thousands of fans hoping that one day they would get to see their heroes again.
Their wish came true and AT THE GATES reunion was one of the summer festival highlights across Europe in 2008. Now the band return for an exclusive appearance and BLOODSTOCK is honoured to welcome them back for what is bound to be an unforgettable set at Catton Hall.
