At The Gates

One of the more melodic death metal bands to expand beyond Sweden and spread their sound across the world alongside peers such as Entombed, At the Gates played a significant role in the death metal genre before breaking up in 1996, leading to the formation of the Haunted. The group's first lineup -- Tomas Lindberg (vocals), Anders Bjorler (guitars), Adrian Erlandsson (drums), Jonas Bjorler (bass), and Alf Svensson (guitars) -- formed in late 1990, recording the Gardens of Grief EP for the Dolores label. They toured Sweden with well-known groups such as Bolt Thrower and Dismember before eventually signing to Peaceville Records, who released their The Red in the Sky Is Ours album. In 1993, they replaced Svensson with Martin Larsson on guitar, released their second album, With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness, and toured the U.K. with Anathema and Cradle of Filth.

Next came their Terminal Spirit Disease album in May 1994, furthering the band's reputation with critics, who championed their fresh approach to death metal. This acclaim also led to their signing by Earache, who released their Slaughter of the Soul album, which seemed a more realized approach to the melodic style of death metal the group had alluded to on previous releases. Unfortunately, just as At the Gates began to win even more acclaim -- a nomination at the Swedish Grammys, heavy rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, two successful U.S. tours with Morbid Angel and Napalm Death -- the group splintered, with the Bjorler twins and Erlandsson forming the Haunted and Lindberg forming Hide.

The band reunited in 2007 to play a series of shows. They continued to perform live sporadically over the next few years, but claimed they would no longer record until, in 2014, a full 19 years after the release of their last album, they announced that they would be issuing a new studio effort. At War with Reality, a concept album inspired by the literary genre of magic realism, was released in October through Century Media and was every bit as powerful as their previous releases. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

(Souls Of The Evil Departed) Amazing instrumental playing, but the vocals were a little odd to me, my uncle likes them though so figured i'd listen to the whole song, I love the sound honestly.

Slaughter Of The Soul truly is an outstanding album and holds up well to this day. Need I say more?

@icspwnz It's all to do with Satan being the ultimate resistance to a Christian society. Satan is also literally translated out of Hebrew to be The Aggressor or The Enemy. So you can see why most metal bands propagate the satanist schtick. It's all for shock. Not many actually believe in anything Anton LaVey or his ilk believes. And Satanist are just as much sheep as Christians, a group of goats flocking together. That's why you should think for yourself and not go along with any religion.

whats up with the satanic dogma thats prevalent with most metal bands? its just as bad as being a christian band because it gives credence to that whole religious belief system.

@Lump Flexor I agree I've seen the haunted a couple of times and was not impressed. Their singer is amazingly annoying.

My friend's band opened up for the haunted a while back. It was exciting to see some of the former members of that in which once was the almighty At The Gates.... but the haunted sucks... sorry :(

So many current bands sound like they are covering Slaughter of the Soul. Amazing what that album has done so many years after it's release.

overall it is just not melodic enough for to buy the "melodic death" genre label.

Similar to Slayer? No

I dont understand why people come on to say this s**t sucks. You were searching for this type of music for a reason. Slaughter of the Soul blew my mind away. Vocals grow on you when you hear all of the other complexity going on. Sure, at times its just noise and blast beats...but then there is that moment you are rewarded with some stellar breakdown. I love The Metal.

Dissing Slaughter of the Soul is kind of trendy, but if you didn't rage to that album at some point you are missing out \666/

It was funny, when I was younger and playing classical music. People would ask me how I could listen to this stuff. I would reply that if they actually listened to Death metal it is more related to classical music than the stuff they played on the radio. Narrow mindedness breeds strange views that have no basis in reality or empirical truth. Bands like this paved the way for groups like Opeth.

great band, and I think you can probably credit them as one of the bands who invented melodic death metal.
