No. I like all first 3 albums much better than Slaughter of the Soul. SotS is indeed their most catchy and well-produced work, but it lacks the dark atmosphere and sheer despair that the old stuff had. I also like the unusual way of writing and arranging riffs that Anders had; it may sound less "professional", but it gave the songs a kind of gloomy feel to the songs, thus making them more interesting. That's only my opinion, because most of the people seem to like SotS, which I do consider as an excellent record, better.

My favourite songs are on Terminal Spirit Disease, but their finest record, if considered as a whole, would be The Red in the Sky Is Ours if you asked me.
