As if they invented a new genre before.

Modern Deathcore/Metalcore = SotS ripoff.

I've seen some stupid shit in my time but someone claiming At the Gates spawned deathcore has to be near the top of that list.

Modern metalcore does come close though!

There are some shared elements, no doubt. But deathcore and the kind of melodic death metal At the Gates are known for don't exactly go hand-in-hand.

I agree with Deathcore and At The Gates being chalk and cheese.

When I first heard modern metalcore (i.e. KSE, Darkest Hour etc) I really struggled seeing the difference between it and Swedish melodic DM. There was more poppy clean singing but by that stage MDM bands were also starting to get clean singing. Breakdowns weren't that common either in some of those early popular metalcore bands.

I am still rubbing my eyes in disbelief (half an hour after reading it) from having read what that guy said about ATG having spawned deathcore/metalcore.
The deathcore claim is totally ludicrous and about metalcore... proper metalcore was already around in the 80s in the form of Cro Mags after their debut album, Agnostic Front on an album such as Cause For Alarm. It did however influence what people call metalcore nowadays, where the core part of the name should be dropped, to be honest, since it has nothing to do with hardcore whatsoever.

Looking forward to seeing the album artwork at some stage.

The new genre is called Hedgehog Coitus Pop. It is basically what In Flames is aiming for with Siren Charms, but with the sounds of mating echidnae as vocals. ...oh wait.

Nothing like the sound of mating monotremes.

For a second I read 'mating metronomes'

I really don't want to have high expectations regarding this album. That said, I can't help it.

I will listen to it just for nostalgia, but I think it will be disappointing, better not to have high expectations.

And they done goofed

Although they have had some suspect album artwork in the past so there's still a chance the music will be good.
FreddeSwede - 05.09.2014 at 22:08  
This album is awesome, trust me...
Darth Revan - 05.09.2014 at 22:58  
Heh, "The Head of the Hydra," "Death and the Labyrinth," "Heroes and Tombs"? And here I thought MDM wasn't proper at my local Pathfinder Society...

And don't mistake that for ridicule. I like my geeky music plenty.

Album of the year

I'm not sure what's more flat: the songs, the production or the vocals. I think Heroes And Tombs and The Conspiracy Of The Blind are the only things I enjoyed on this

At least it´s not like the new in flames album, Tompa´s vocals are a byt tired but overall good

Kind of an odd thing to say seeing as you gave the new In Flames 10 / 10 I agree though, this is better than the new In Flames, just not very interesting to me.

Told you this album would rock. It sure does rock, even though it's nothing new. It's At The Gates, auto-win.

In flames is my favorite band, I always put 10 on the CM

Slaughter of the Soul part II.
Song structures very much like SotS.
The production is too high and too clean. Shame.

Perhaps structurally, but it's flat out average compared to that album.

I don't go in for all this commentary on albums prior to their release. I don't know how you young punks even get it before release, but that's your thing these days. Whatever floats your boat. The gotta have it now generation. Anyway, on the strength of the two offically released songs, I've got high expectations of a pretty decent album (when it comes out). I can wait. Anticipation is sometimes even better than the actual experience. Here's hoping that the anticipation and the experience are on a par with each other this time.
