AT THE GATES (1990–96, 2006–PRESENT). Tomas Lindberg (vocals), Anders Bjoler (guitar), Martin Larsson (guitar), Jonas Bjoler (bass), Adrian Erlandsson (drums).
At the Gates was one of the quintessential black metal bands of the nineties as epitomized on classic records such as Slaughter of the Soul. Founded in Gothenburg, Sweden, along with fellow band In Flames, At the Gates is known for their brutal assault, which was sadly cut off when the band broke up in 1996. Luckily for metal purists, the band reunited in 2006, and pretty much picked up right where they left off.
