At The Gates Death and the Labyrinth Music Video

Death and the Labyrinth music video from the October 2014 At The Gates comeback album At War With Reality.  The album was recorded at Studio Freman in Gothenburg and was then mixed at Fascination Street Studios with Jens Bogren. 

Band vocalist Tomas Lindberg said about the video – “We had a very special idea about the kind of approach we wanted for the first video from At War With Reality. What we needed was someone gifted enough to throw himself artistically into the project full on.  The lyrics to the song are very multi-layered and surreal, so we wanted someone to create a fevered dreamworld that went with the melancholic frustration and dramatic desperation that we feel comes across in the song. This is exactly what Patric has created for us. It’s his vision of the music and lyrics, which compliments the track perfectly, in my opinion. I couldn’t be happier!”

Death and the Labyrinth Lyrics

Behind the curtain
Laid to ruins
Words that drift
Into oblivion

With every dawn
The world deforms
And as we fade
Our truth it dies

Our poetry of broken dreams
An abattoir of time

Deep in the hive of the serpent
We shed the disguises we have worn
A curtain of madmen
We are the illusions we have torn

Death and the labyrinth
Swallowed by earth itself

With every dawn
Of hunger and thirst
The world deforms
To a pale uncertain ash

Words without sound
Fade away – as they are swallowed
Swallowed by barriers and walls
Like a swarm

Deep in the hive of the serpent
We shed the disguises we have worn
A curtain of madmen
We are the illusions we have torn

Our poetry of broken dreams
An abattoir of time

Death and the labyrinth
Swallowed by earth itself
