Melodic Death Metal doesn’t really get much better… AT THE GATES have delivered some exciting news. After their founding guitarist, Anders Björler departed earlier this year, they are now proud to introduce Jonas Stålhammar as their new guitarist.
With preparations for their upcoming album coming to an end, and 11 solid tracks that they are excited to unleash via Century Media, 2018 is going to be a good year for AT THE GATES.
AT THE GATES Comment: “We have finally decided on a new guitar player, and we are ready to rip again! Actually he was our first choice, and we are happy to have him on board. Jonas Stålhammar has been a friend since the late eighties (Tomas used to tape trade with him back then!), and our paths have crossed many times during our careers.
We were looking for someone who had the same reference points as we do, someone from the same path, so to say, who understand the greatness of both Autopsy and King Crimson. Of course it was essential that our new member could fill the shoes of Anders’ performance-wise as well, but that was never an issue with Jonas. We were looking for someone with a deep understanding of what AT THE GATES are about, someone who could contribute creatively to the band.
Jonas Stålhammar will be a full member from day one, and will play on the upcoming full length album, scheduled for recording in November 2017 – January 2018”
