Sweden's Dark Tranquillity may have been a half step behind some of the other leaders in the Gothenburg melodic death metal movement (In Flames and The Crown come to mind), but with "Damage Done", Dark Tranquillity are going not only going to get the praise they deserve, but be a hard act to follow in the process.

Ladies and gentlemen, Dark Tranquillity is proud to introduce their latest bombshell and you better give it a listen! In the typical current trend to make the now famous Gothenburg sound progress, "Damage Done" is the cornerstone of the arising splendid edifice. The band of Niklas Sundin and Mikael Stanne is still on top of everybody else in terms of creating headbanging riffs and memorable anthems and this album is an endowment to every metal freak on Earth.

First album I ever heard from them. Blew my mind. Still my favorite, but almost everything these guys touch turns to gold.

Man, this album is just too fucking good. Everytime I look at the tracklist i'm amazed at just how many incredible songs are on it. Most albums theres 2 or 3, maybe 4 incredible songs if its a really good album...... but Damage Done? At least 7. Monochromatic Stains, Single Part of Two, Final Resistance, Treason Wall, Damage Done, Cathode Ray Sunshine and, in my opinion, The Poison Well. You can easily make an argument for more than 7 as well. I've been listening to this album for YEARS and I don't get sick of hearing any of it
