At the Gates In-depth Biography

One of the more melodic death metal bands to expand beyond Sweden and spread their sound across the world alongside peers such as Entombed}, At the Gates} played a significant role in the death metal genre before breaking up in 1996, leading to the formation of the Haunted}. The group's first line-up -- Tomas Lindberg} (vocals), Anders Bjorler} (guitars), Adrian Erlandsson} (drums), Jonas Bjorler} (bass), and Alf Svensson} (guitars) -- formed in late 1990, recording the Gardens of Grief} EP for the Dolores} label. They toured Sweden with well-known groups such as Bolt Thrower} and Dismember} before eventually signing to Peaceville Records}, who released their The Red in the Sky Is Ours} album. In 1993, they replaced Svensson} with Martin Larsson} on guitar, released their second album, With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness}, and toured the U.K. with Anathema} and Cradle of Filth}. Next came their Terminal Spirit Disease} album in May 1994, furthering the band's reputation with critics, who championed their fresh approach to death metal.
