SLAUGHTER OF THE SOLD: THE AT THE GATES CASH-IN CONTINUES
You can’t blame At the Gates for wanting to get paid by doing some reunion shows; every metal band from Killswitch Engage to The Black Dahlia Murder is finding success ripping off ATG, so why shouldn’t they make a quick buck?
So in what seems like an obvious effort to build even more reunion hype and get more Hot Topic kids to purchase copes of Slaughter of the Soul, Earache has now announced the forthcoming release of a special edition of that seminal album:
“A recently unearthed live show from seminal Swedish Death Metallers At the Gates will form part of a limited edition version of their classic 1995
album Slaughter of the Soul, to be released on March 10 in Europe and
March 25 in North America.
“Issued as a 2 disc set containing the original album, 6 bonus songs and the
35 minute The Making of Slaughter of the Soul documentary, the release
now boasts a full live set filmed live in Krakow, Poland 30th December 1995, when the band toured with Unleashed.”
Uh, I guess this could be cool. But to be honest, I’m not too psyched by this clip of the band performing “Cold” from the live DVD:
