At The Gates, pioneers of the melo-death movement have unveiled the artwork for their brand new album To Drink From The Night Itself (which might just be the most metal title ever). After splitting up in 1996, the band reformed and released At War With Reality in 2014. Now they return with the follow up, and have revealed the brand new artwork (below), working once again with artist Costin Chioreanu. Discussing the art for the new record, vocalist Tomas Lindberg talks about where the ideas came from, and the connection he feels with Chioreanu:

“”It has once again been an absolute pleasure working creativily with Costin. We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted to get across with the art this time around. Overall they were, not surprisingly, related to the general concept of the record. What is great with Costin is that he understands the band. He knows what we are and where we come from. And me and him also have a strong artistic connection. I have never met anyone that goes so deep into the world of my lyrics and concepts. When I first wrote to him describing my ideas, I was worried that my remarks were perhaps too long and too confusing, only to get back an even longer and very inspired response”

“The inspiration for the actual front cover piece is taken from the Pergamon Altar, on display at the Pergamon museum in Berlin. It is of course linked closely to the concept that the whole record is based upon, but more on that later. But I will throw a name out there, for the interested ones; Peter Weiss. I can’t wait to get the whole record in my hands now, as this is just one of the many great artwork pieces that Costin has created for us”
