Full disclosure: At The Gates is one of my favourite bands. And when I say that, I don't mean in my top 50. They are in the running for #1. It's been almost 20 years since the release of Slaughter Of The Soul, an album considered by many (myself included) to be one of the finest melodic death metal recordings ever. At last, they are back with a new album - At War With Reality.

It just doesn't really grow on one. It's boring and bland. What a waste!


It's okay if you don't get it - we won't hold it against you. I think this is a solid comeback album.

I like how they put the best song on the album as a bonus track...
