At the Gates's old stuff absolutely does not suck. I like 'Slaughter of the Soul' as much as the next guy, but 'The Red in the Sky Is Ours' and (to a lesser extent) 'With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness' are far more interesting and atmospheric. I'd probably have to go with 'The Red...' as my favorite ATG album nowadays, in fact; my only complaint with it is the somewhat out-of-tune violin. But even that kind of adds to the strange, twisted sound they had.

Basically, I agree with everything VoidFlame said, except for the stuff about 'Terminal Spirit Disease', because I haven't heard that one.
