AT THE GATES guitarist ANDERS BJORLER comments:
"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. For the mixing we used
mastermind Tue Madsen, and we are very happy with the result."
AT THE GATES frontman TOMAS LINDBERG adds:
"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!!!"
