At War with Reality is the fifth studio album by Swedish melodic death metal band At the Gates, released in October 2014 via Century Media Records.

Formed in 1990 by former members of the black metal band GrotesqueAt the Gates quickly became prominent in the Swedish metal scene, signing with seminal metal label Peaceville Records following the release of their debut EP Gardens of Grief in 1991. The group met with increasing international success up until 1996 when they disbanded, following the departure of Alf Svensson in and later the Björler brothers, leaving only two of the original band members remaining.

At the Gates then reformed in 2007 for a reunion tour, however wishing to leave the legacy of their critically and commercially successful album Slaughter of the Soul "in tact", the band held off releasing any new albums for the time being.

Following a 19 year hiatus of new albums, At War with Reality was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg and was produced by Fredrik Nordström (known for Dream Evil, and as one of the key figures in the "Gothenburg style" of death metal). Ray Van Horn, Jr. of Blabbermouth.net rated the album eight-and-a-half stars out of ten, and called it "probably the most anticipated metal album" of 2014. He finished his review by saying that "At the Gates make mincemeat out of this album and efficiently plot most of their songs to wrap in far less time than their acolytes. The average song on At War with Reality clocks in between two-and-a-half and four minutes, yet all feel like far more has transcended. That's something special. Inadvertently and unfairly credited for the ascension of metalcore, At the Gates releases a demonstrative comeback album that's simply metal".

Check out the tracks "Death and the Labyrinth", "Heroes and Tombs" and "The Book of Sand (The Abomination)".

This 180 Gram LP Vinyl Record is housed in a gatefold sleeve, contains a 20 page booklet and poster, and was pressed in Germany.
