At the Gates - Slaughter of the Soul (1995)
I can’t see many fans of extreme metal not liking this album. It’s really a perfect album in every way. There are so many good riffs on it and at only a little over a half an hour long it leaves you wanting more. Blinded by Fear
into Slaughter of the Soul
is one of the best openings in the history of metal. And the highest point for this album; the massive guitar sound. If I ever played in a band again I’d want my guitars to sound like they do on this album. For the longest time this album was in my top five but it fell out of even my top twenty after I listened to it SO MUCH around the turn of the century and it's pretty much dead to me. If you’ve never heard this album do yourself and just buy it. Anyone will agree; you will NOT be disappointed.
