Swedish melo-death originators At The Gates released their new video for the song ‘The Book Of Sand (The Abomination)’ today. You can see the clip at this link or below:


Directed by Costin Chioreanu, the video has performance elements shot at the Rockstadt Extreme Fest in Romania on August 15. Chioreanu created the artwork concept of 2014’s At War With Reality (Century Media), as well as the animated video for the song ‘Heroes And Tombs’.

Guitarist Anders Björler commented: Costin has been a huge part of ‘At War With Reality’ every step of the way. He did the magnificent album art and artwork as well as the impressive animated video for ‘Heroes And Tombs’. Now, he captures the magic of our visit in Romania a couple of weeks ago. A festival situated on the grounds of Transylvania.

‘The Book Of Sand (The Abomination)’ was actually the first song written for the new album and contains elements from our entire musical history.”
