Once again Witchdoctor Productions is proving to be a force to be reckoned with in the South African heavy music scene by bringing At the Gates out for 2 shows at the end of May 2015. This will be the 1st time the band plays on African soil, a dream come true for many South African metal heads.
At the Gates is a Swedish death metal band from Gothenburg, and a major progenitor of the melodic death metal sound which laid the foundation for bands such as Killswitch Engage, Trivium and As I Lay Dying.
Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour before breaking up once again in 2008. However, they reformed for a second time in December 2010, and have since continued to perform live. The band released At War with Reality, their first album in 19 years, in late 2014.
