Yes please, Carcass proved it can be done.

I'm ready. It's prob gonna be more along the lines of the sellout album rather than the early-to-mid stuff though.

Good thing Slaughter Of The Soul is one of the best heavy metal albums period and by far ATG's best album.

Not joking, go be an old curmudgeon somewhere else.

Not sure I really want this, even if At the Gates is one of my favourite bands ever... I didn't enjoy the new Carcass as much as everyone and I'm scared they would screw up a so far perfect legacy.

I like the album, maybe I failed to say that. Sorry. But let's at least be honest about what it is though.

Let's see what else they can put together, should be fun.

Has to be a release of something big, whether it's a new album or a tour that will hit markets they haven't had a chance to yet.

If Slaughter of the Soul is a sell out album, then I wish everything ever recorded could be a sell out album.

Obviously an album that evokes very defensive feelings. Panties in the bunch.

"Sell-out" doesn't have anything to do with quality necessarily. It's a great record. The best way I can put it this review:

Despite the sleek package and amazing production, this is the At the Gates sellout album. It has not fallen to the depths of later Carcass or post-1992 Metallica, but it has dropped the progressive underpinnings in favor of speed metal adorned with a technical flair but mostly, through its rough permutations and basic sense of pentatonic harmonics, it remains dressed-up heavy metal as a sad coda to the career of the Gothenburg band. The same self-unravelling harmonizing riffs, liquid solos and strong sense of color of sound are here, but each is a condiment to a main course of standard rock fare, and has gone through a sanitizing process to be brought closer to mainstream music, demonstrating that the technique layer is far from what constitutes the artistic content of each song. In particular, it sounds like Metallica attempting ...And Justice For All in a stylistic mashup between Iron Maiden and Judas Priest during Painkiller, but this album is not even that competent, as the slaphappy graceless catchy choruses repeated ad nauseam demonstrate. For most At the Gates listeners, this album will seem a favorite until they hear it ten years from now in the context of other At the Gates works, when it will stand revealed as a transparent commercial album made to pander to the segment of the metal audience who want the predictable disguised as the unique for the sake of fashion.

It's their best album, I don't care how you want to preface it with "BUT IT'S PREDICTABLE" or "IT'S EASY TO GET INTO", that just makes it all the better.
