Costin Chioreanu designed it, and it’s attached to this very post.

The cover art for the new At the Gates record has been revealed.

The band’s Tomas Lindberg says:

“The concept of ‘At War with Reality’ is based on the literary genre called ‘Magic Realism.’ The main style within this genre is the notion that ‘reality’ is ever-changing, and needs to be constantly re-discovered and re-conquered. We felt that Costin’s artwork style would be the perfect visual contribution to this album, so he became the natural choice…”

Chioreanu checked in with the following words:

“I have been waiting for this album for almost 20 years and it’s the biggest honor for me to illustrate it — As there is no greater achievement for a dreamer than the moment when the dream becomes reality. ‘At War With Reality’ is by far the most complex visual story I have ever created, from all points of view. From the very first moment the band presented the concept, I found it extremely stunning and at the same time super-challenging. I like to think that visual art and music are tools to explore our minds – to create, to discover and to push the limits. At the Gates, one of my all-time favorite Metal bands, offered me a chance to explore a new dimension.”

At War With Reality will be released on October 27 in Europe and a day later everywhere else.
