At The Gates release 'Cosmic Pessimism' video

Swedish melodic death metal innovators At The Gates have issued a new music video for "Cosmic Pessimism," a track from their latest studio album, The Nightmare of Being, today. The Costin Chioreanu-directed video can be viewed below.

At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant comments: "'Cosmic Pessimism' is one of the central tracks of the new record. Not only drawing the title from the Eugene Thacker book of the same name, the lyrics actually are written by Eugene himself. This is something I am very proud of, the collaboration with one of the central figures when it comes to modern day pessimism and the idea of how it correlates to cosmic horror. It is a suffocatingly strict and repetitive song, and it displays the mood of the lyrics brilliantly, in my opinion. At The Gates have always been fans of anything eclectic and extreme, and we are finally at a moment in our career where we feel comfortable lifting in some of these, more avantgarde influences within the at the gates trademark sound. Minimalistic neo classical influences here clash with the deutsche rock/"kraut" and no wave sounds that we love so much. The video is once again shot by Costin, our longtime collaborator, and, once again, he managed to add extra depth and texture to the music and lyrics."

The album is alright just like the one before but Jonas Björler can't bear it alone to make a truly great album like slaughter or at war with reality. He needs his brother Anders. Too bad he doesn't wanna play metal anymore.

This is absolute trash. They really shouldn't have made anything after Slaughter
