Vaunted Swedish melodic death metallers AT THE GATES have released the video for “The Book of Sand (The Abomination).” The song comes from the band’s 2014 album, At War With Reality.

The clip was created by Costin Chioreanu, who was already responsible for the challenging artwork concept of the band’s comeback album, “At War With Reality”, as well as the creation of the animated video for the song “Heroes And Tombs.” “The Book Of Sand (The Abomination)” video consists of performance footage shot at the Rockstadt Extreme Fest in Romania on August 15:

Comments AT THE GATES guitarist Anders Björler: “Costin has been a huge part of At War With Reality every step of the way. He did the magnificent album art and artwork as well as the impressive animated video for ‘Heroes And Tombs’. Now, he captures the magic of our visit in Romania a couple of weeks ago. A festival situated on the grounds of Transylvania.

“‘The Book Of Sand (The Abomination)’ was actually the first song written for the new album and contains elements from our entire musical history.”
