This album... This album was THE thing that (along with Carcass' "Heartwork") defined melodic death metal. It marks a significant change in this previously recognized but ordinary death metal band with an occasional melodical throw-in. The songwriting improved by leaps and bounds (mainly thanks to the Bjorler brothers) and, although it has only 6 original tracks and an additional 6 live tracks (and therefore feels a bit like an EP), they are as worthy as any entire album that is considered a milestone in the history of metal. Why?

Rating: 8 Good album. but only 5 songs??? very few...

Rating: 8 A great album, but as it only has six songs and three live tracks, i feel as if its more of an EP. Nonetheless, the title track and 'The Swarm' are well executed songs, proving the distinct transition from the rawness of the preceding album and the pride of 'Slaughter of the Soul'.

Rating: 8 At The Gates almost sounding like In Flames (or possibly even Dark Tranquillity) [or later Arch Enemy] during that era.




Always been fond of this track.
