Guest review by

At the Gates is a legendary band that needs no huge introduction. We got Tomas Lindberg doing the tormented growling, the Björler brothers on guitar and bass respectively, also an inspirational musician named Alf Svensson on the guitar. Adrian Erlandsson behind the drumkit.

From the opener "The Red In The Sky Is Ours / The Season To Come" it's apparent that this album is no easy catchy ride. Complicated structures, strange riffs and multiple tempo changes define this very original piece of art. The strangeness of the music is in the very core of answering why The Red In The Sky Is Ours or "simply" TRITSIO, is nothing less than a masterpiece. Now masterpiece is a big word, it's easy to throw it around until it means nothing, but in this case there are absolutely no doubts. Every single entity of the band creates a work of immense originality; I mean, tell me where to find anything that sounds like this and I will kiss your dirty feet.

Rating: 7 This album still has those elements that make At the Gates stand out from the pack, but the vocals prove weak compared to future releases. Nonetheless, its a damn good album and one that i will definitely keep.

Rating: 6 I tried to give it another go, just doesn't do much for me.

Rating: 8 For sure this is the best ATG album ... a true original melodic death - without boring arrangements and trade-oriented producing (like 'Slaughter Of The Soul').
I think this is considerably better than their overpraised fourth album.

  Feh, did not care for this at all. People on here overrate At The Gate's early stuff way too much, even if not as much as others overrate Slaughter. At least Slaughter had hooks.

Rating: 5 Really don't like this one. I find the sound awful and am not to happy with the song writing.
