Sweden’s At the Gates formed in 1990 and the Gothenburg based group released 4 highly successful and influential studio albums before the band broke up in 1996. They later reformed in 2007 & have been embarking upon successful reunion dates across the globe in recent years.
Regarded as a highlight of the band’s career by many who followed them from their earliest incarnation, With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness, was originally released in 1993. The album was known for its breakthrough style at the time, with highly complex melodic arrangements retaining a dark and brutal edge mixed with slight black metal overtones and poetic, philosophical lyrics suiting the tracks perfectly. The album also featured a guest appearance by Matti Karki of Dismember.
