AT THE GATES: Slaughter of the Soul
December 04, 2021
Swedish Melodic Death Metal in 1995 was the place to be and At The Gates found themselves right dead center with Slaughter of the Soul.
“22 years of pain. And I can feel it closing in. The will to rise above, tearing my insides out”
This melodically shreds my soul as each song flows into the next. The album clocks in a little over 34 minutes so you’ll want to play it a few times.
This album is their peak as the called it quits less than a year after this release. There was a brief reunion in 2007 and eventually got back together in 2014. They are still active today.
This album was nominated for a Swedish Grammy, but they fell short and didn’t win.
They won in my book.
Here is the track listing...
1. Blinded By Fear
2. Slaughter Of The Soul
4. Under A Serpent Sun
5. Into The Dead Sky
6. Suicide Nation
7. World Of Lies
8. Unto Others
11. The Flames Of The End
