AT THE GATES comment on "The Flames of the End":

TOMAS LINDBERG (vocals): "This show stands out as one of my career
highlights; I'm very proud of what we achieved during the summer of 2008 and
the Wacken show is a very good summary of that experience. Thanks for
everyone who attended!!!"

JONAS BJORLER (bass): "Finally, after a lot of work - we finally have a
finished product. This DVD will be the perfect ending for At the Gates, and
will give the fans a better understanding of the band and the members. We
are really proud and stoked about this release - and we hope you all will
love it as much as we do."

ANDERS BJORLER (guitars): "The Wacken show is a very proud moment for myself
and At the Gates. It was one of the best shows of the reunion summer, and
it was totally awesome to capture it on video as well. For the mixing we
used mastermind Tue Madsen, and we are very happy with the result."
