Well, I just searched for a thread on them and didn't find anything.

I believe that they're one of the best Melodic Death Metal bands of all time. I've been listening to Slaughter Of The Soul. Does anybody else have anything to reccomend by them?

Would they be considered part of the New Wave Of Swedish Heavy Metal?

Meh? Best band of that genre ever is what I think. They are such an influential band to many. Made many brutal kick ass riffs too.
#4
meh? What the hell? If you don't like them, than post why.

Yeah, the intro riffs to Slaughter Of The Soul, and Blinded By Fear are pretty kick ass.

IMO, they basically started Melo-Death. I love to them, get all their albums man. I love each of them.

2 of my favorite songs by them are suicide nation and under a serpent sun, you might wanna check those two out. And they are definately a great band.
#7
I've already got both of those, and I love them.

Does anybody know if their part of the NWOSHM? Wikipedia says they are pre-NWOSHM, but I don't really trust them.

I've never even heard the term New wave of swedish heavy metal.

NWOBHM seems to actually define that classic metal sound, while NWOSHM just seems like classifying things based on location instead of sound.

P.S. I don't like them because they just don't have that sound i like in melodeath, and in general i don't really like melodeath much.

Melo-Death is my fav.....

Can't wait for the new Wintersun album

I've heard NWOSHM, a couple of times, but I guess it's not really a defintion. I haven't heard much about it, which was why I was asking.

They don't sound like Melodic Death?

My bad, I read your other post wrong. Well, fair enough, if you don't like them than that's your opinion.

I think In Flames might be my fave melo death band (or late Carcass)
Quote by hepzibahbaptist
Yeah listen to Apoc. He knows what he's talking about.

I didn't know Carcass had melodeath songs, I thought they were always grind. But I've never listened to much by them.

Old In Flames is amazing, especially Whoracle and The Jester Race.

Funny, seeing as Carcass is often credited as releasing one of the first melodic death metal album.

But of course, ATG were one of the bands that pioneered the "Gothenburg" sound.

Good band, but no doubt overrated.
How can we separate fact from fiction in a world where we are desensitized by our own minds?
#20
Despite me being a huge melodic death fan and AtG being arguably the most influential melodic death band of all time, I find this band to be genuinely boring. They're not bad but I always find myself wanting to listen to something else.

Too bad the core bands have ripped this band off so much. It sucks. I love At the Gates btw.
#22
I FEEL MY SOUL GO COLD!

Slaughter + Blinded by Fear + Cold = One hell of an album. Way to start an album off too. The Red in the Sky is Ours isn't bad either.
#26
I think Cold is my favorite song of SotS... plus that solo gets me everytime.

*plays air guitar*
#27
I like 'em, not all that much, but I do enjoy an album every now & then

Somebody else did the solo for that song, anybody know who it was?

Edit: It was Andy LaRocque from King Diamond

I LOOVE THAT INTRO!

I love At the Gates in general. Great band. The Swarm is an amazing song with a great intro. Need is a sweet song too. Short, but sweet. Raped by the Light of Christ is awesome as well.

Only got SOTS and its the tits. Kinda sucks that it has been ripped off to hell but whatever it doesn't take away from the original. Blinded By Fear is possibly the headbangingest thing besides Hammer Smashed Face ever.

They're okay but I hate the vocalist, and they do get boring pretty quick.

Anders Bjorler (whos now in The Haunted alongside Jonas Bjorler who played bass for At The Gates and Adrian Erlandsson who played drums for At The Gates). Martin Larsson is the other guitarist, and earlier, they had a guitarist named Alf Svensson.

Oh, and At The Gates entire catalog is brilliant. I love Terminal Spirit Disease, Through Gardens of Grief, and Under a Serpent Sun.

That's bloody hilarious!

Alf Svensson is also the name of this guy, who also happens to be the (previous) leader of the Swedish christian democratic party:



That is simply unbelievably kvlt!

Anders uploaded this video on YouTube. Definately check it out if you like At the Gates.

they messed up the timing on Blinded by Fear so bad. That does have a weird timing though.

Awesome band. One of the first metal bands I got into.
TSD and SotS own. *cocks shotgun*

i have all their albums. im much more a fan of the slaughter of the soul and terminal spirit disease then red sky and burning darkness.


i remember before i knew them i kept trying to find their stuff on the internet but could never do a search because "at the gates" turned up to many irrelevent searches.
