At the Gates is a melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, and a major progenitor of the Gothenburg death metal sound. Initially active from 1990 to 1996, the band reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour. At the Gates was formed in 1990 by former members of the pioneering death metal band Grotesque. They recorded a debut EP, Gardens of Grief, for the Dolores record label, and sold cassettes, vinyls, and XL t-shirts to promote the recording.

- LyricsA howling wind of nightmares
Howling through barren streets
Frozen in time
The city woke up, paralyzed
Where is the splendor?
- LyricsBehind the curtain
Laid to ruins
Words that drift
With every dawn
- LyricsNever again
On your force fed illusions to choke
You feed off my pain
Fee off my life
There won't be another dawn
