At The Gates guitarist Martin Larsson is here to count down five great bands from Gothenburg, Sweden that you should know! Follow along and learn about the Swedish greats you need on your list.
At The Gates recently announced longtime guitarist Anders Björler has rejoined the band. Björler originally played with At The Gates between 1990 and 1996, again briefly during their reunion in 2007 and 2008, and then finally between 2010 and 2017. Björler replaces guitarist Jonas Stålhammar, who exited the group earlier this year.
"It is with great pleasure we welcome Anders Björler, one of the founding members, back into the band. We are excited to tell you that we are already starting the work on the follow up to The Nightmare of Being, with the same line up that wrote Terminal Spirit Disease, Slaughter of the Soul, and At War With Reality," said vocalist Tomas Lindberg.
"Anders first show back in the band will be Damnation Fest in the UK in November, and he will join us on the European tour together with In Flames later this year. Great Times! It really feels like a second rebirth of the band, and we are looking forward to this new chapter!"
"It feels like coming home for sure," added Björler. "I have been missing the guys of course, but also playing the guitar, writing music and the artistic creativity in general. I've been watching from the sidelines for a number of years, and I've been very proud of what they have created in my absence. I am really looking forward to writing a new album and getting back to playing live shows again…"
