THE FLAMES OF THE END, the new 3-disc DVD set from Swedish melodic death
metal pioneers AT THE GATES, is out now in North America.
THE FLAMES OF THE END celebrates AT THE GATES' massively influential career
and successful reunion tour with three in-depth and definitive DVDs. Housed
in a deluxe six-panel DVD digipak with a 40-page color booklet, THE FLAMES
OF THE END includes the following indispensable DVDs:
Disc 1: 'Under a Serpent Sun - The Story of At The Gates' - a brand new
documentary with a running time of over 2 hours, chronicling the band's
whole career with interviews and footage, filmed and directed by AT THE
GATES guitarist Anders Bjorler. Decibel Magazine says that the documentary "is absolutely mandatory viewing for anyone remotely keen on Swedish death metal."
Disc 2: 'Purgatory Unleashed - Live at Wacken' - a 75-minute live show from
the band's now-legendary performance at Wacken festival in 2008.
Disc 3: 'Only the Dead Are Smiling' - 26 rare and archive live performances
of AT THE GATES playing in locations around the globe from 1991 - 2008.

AT THE GATES frontman TOMAS LINDBERG comments:
"This is it! The final goodbye! It took some time - mainly because we, and
especially Anders, put his heart and dedication into this project 100%. It
was very important for all of us that this would be a fitting testament for
the band, and a true disposition of our time in the scene. It brings a
smile to me every time I think about the summer of 2008, a special moment
that we now all can relive again and again, the feelings are so
overwhelming. I am so proud to have been part of this. Thanks to everyone
who came out and made it so special and everybody who never stopped
