    This ain't the easy listen they've become known for, but it is a rewarding one.

    There are a few more stately and sombre moments, like the atmospheric Daggers Of Black Haze, bu this is still At The Gates absolutely owning their sound and their legacy. [19 May 2018, p.55]

    To Drink From the Night Itself returns to the peak of At The Gates’ creative side by delving into a more moody, nuanced and diverse set of songs that shares more in common with their first few releases than the one everybody seems to remember. In the process, they very well may have released the best album in their history.

    It may have taken them too long to get here, but on To Drink From the Night Itself, they recapture their heyday while leaving their imitators in the rearview.

    Although the new record doesn't exactly expound on their formula--tremulous rhythms paired with truly singable guitar leads--it does contain some memorable songs in "Palace of Lepers" and "The Chasm."
