At the Gates’ Tomas Lindberg on The MetalSucks Podcast #389
At The Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg is our guest this week! We discuss the band’s new album, The Nightmare of Being, the emotions that informed its songwriting process, the difficulty of choosing a single from an album designed to listen to from start to finish, recognizing art as a defensive mechanism for himself, and his feeling about At War With Reality’s legacy. Tomas also talks about rejoining Lock Up and gives an update on their new album, tells us who he considers to be the inventor of death metal, and reveals the career he would have chosen in hindsight instead of metal.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss Megadeth’s firing of David Ellefson, the whirlwind story of child supergroup Suspect208, and Bruce Dickinson’s decision to finally use a smart phone at 62 years old.
Songs: At The Gates – “Spectre of Extinction” and “The Paradox,” Scar of The Sun – “Quantum Leap Zero II: Transition To Turbulence”
