The Swedish death metal band At the Gates unleashed the new video for the song "The Night Eternal" taken from the album "At War With Reality". The video was created by Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, who also worked on artwork for the group’s last full-length release.
"The story of "The Night Eternal" speaks about the dark side of human nature and about the tragedy of living now, in a moment when any possible tool for hiding it becomes futile. The Night Eternal is in us, The Night Eternal is what we became, guiding our spiritual evolution using a wrong map, provided by a wrong society. The victim remains lost in a dream of constant need without any perspective of fulfillment. I present you the best piece I ever done in matter of illustration, concept development and animation," — Costin Chioreanu comments
"The Night Eternal" is one of the absolute strongest and also emotionally challenging songs on the new record. It is a personal favourite and always gives us an enormous touching feedback when we play it live. Therefore it was a no-brainer for us to choose this song when Costin approached us about the idea of another animated video. This time he has, once again, stunned us with his amazing efforts to portray the emotional aspects of the music and lyrics of our songs. His interpretation of our material has always inspired us to rethink and re-evaluate our own creations, and therefore something new comes out of the project every time he is involved," — At the Gates' leader Tomas Lindberg comments
The album "At War With Reality" came out in October last year, becoming the first release of At the Gates after a long 19-year break.
