At The Gates

One of the more melodic death metal bands to expand beyond Sweden and spread their sound across the world alongside peers such as Entombed, At the Gates played a significant role in the death metal genre before breaking up in 1996, leading to the formation of the Haunted. The group's first lineup -- Tomas Lindberg (vocals), Anders Bjorler (guitars), Adrian Erlandsson (drums), Jonas Bjorler (bass), and Alf Svensson (guitars) -- formed in late 1990, recording the Gardens of Grief EP for the Dolores label. They toured Sweden with well-known groups such as Bolt Thrower and Dismember before eventually signing to Peaceville Records, who released their The Red in the Sky Is Ours album. In 1993, they replaced Svensson with Martin Larsson on guitar, released their second album, With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness, and toured the U.K. with Anathema and Cradle of Filth. Next came their Terminal Spirit Disease album in May 1994, furthering the band's reputation with critics, who championed their fresh approach to death metal. This acclaim also led to their signing by Earache, who released their Slaughter of the Soul album, which seemed a more realized approach to the melodic style of death metal the group had alluded to on previous releases. Unfortunately, just as At the Gates began to win even more acclaim -- a nomination at the Swedish Grammys, heavy rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, two successful U.S. tours with Morbid Angel and Napalm Death -- the group splintered, with the Bjorler twins and Erlandsson forming the Haunted and Lindberg forming Hide. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

I graduated from the ninja gym
I might record a song about Raistlin Majere on youtube tomorrow.
F**king incredible. The music and vocals...we need s**t like this again
They're recording a new album, and going to tour. One of the best Swedish metal bands, that didn't turn wussy.
I love this song. The vocals are awesome and so is the instruments. I wish I was able to scream like this
(Souls Of The Evil Departed) Amazing instrumental playing, but the vocals were a little odd to me, my uncle likes them though so figured i'd listen to the whole song, I love the sound honestly.
odinswulf
Awesome album...ever y t h i n g is done right in this one...heathe n s unite!
Horns!!!
One of the best Melodeath albums of all time. Really a masterpiece.
At The Gates, In Flames, old Carcass, SoilWork just doesn't get any better! Saw The Haunted and Lamb of God at CBGB's was a great show but LOG stole the show. Never saw At The Gates live please tour again!!!!!!
Slaughter is a great album
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
sounds like sepulture. saw them live once. they kicked a** and the crowd just sat there nullified.
Rips thruw your so like beautiful black roses
At the Gates are Forunners in their own Right. So many bands sound like them and they started it. hailz from Des Moines.
I agree At the Gates was great but The Haunted is one of the greatest metal bands ever, powerful and beautiful...
At the gates was an amazingly amazing band that existited and should exist again so that they can tour every city in the world with between the buried and me and Arch enemy to open all ears and eyes to the fact that music is F**KING AWSOME !!
i withdraw my prior statement. this band is nasty!!!
who here likes the haunted better than at the gates??? me me!!! not saying they arent a great ground breaking band. just not as solid all around as the haunted.
tristanhi88
at the gates older stuff was real dark deathmetal
lol no comments?
These guys set some standards and inspired alot of the s**t we hear today!
no red in the sky....pando r a fails again
Slaughter Of The Soul truly is an outstanding album and holds up well to this day. Need I say more?
@icspwnz It's all to do with Satan being the ultimate resistance to a Christian society. Satan is also literally translated out of Hebrew to be The Aggressor or The Enemy. So you can see why most metal bands propagate the satanist schtick. It's all for shock. Not many actually believe in anything Anton LaVey or his ilk believes. And Satanist are just as much sheep as Christians, a group of goats flocking together. That's why you should think for yourself and not go along with any religion.
whats up with the satanic dogma thats prevalent with most metal bands? its just as bad as being a christian band because it gives credence to that whole religious belief system.
@Lump Flexor I agree I've seen the haunted a couple of times and was not impressed. Their singer is amazingly annoying.
My friend's band opened up for the haunted a while back. It was exciting to see some of the former members of that in which once was the almighty At The Gates.... but the haunted sucks... sorry :(
I'm a metal noob, so this is the greatest thing pandora has shown be since necropahgist
So many current bands sound like they are covering Slaughter of the Soul. Amazing what that album has done so many years after it's release.
overall it is just not melodic enough for to buy the "melodic death" genre label.

They broke up? Oh well, no big loss.
Lent my friend my copy of Slaughter Of The Soul last week. He found his new favourite band
Similar to Slayer? No
I dont understand why people come on to say this s**t sucks. You were searching for this type of music for a reason. Slaughter of the Soul blew my mind away. Vocals grow on you when you hear all of the other complexity going on. Sure, at times its just noise and blast beats...but then there is that moment you are rewarded with some stellar breakdown. I love The Metal.

hell yeah!!!!
I wanna have their babies!!!
This got me out of my chair to check who it was. I recognized it, and then I was like, "At the Gates?!" Damn, I forgot how much they rock!

Dissing Slaughter of the Soul is kind of trendy, but if you didn't rage to that album at some point you are missing out \666/
It was funny, when I was younger and playing classical music. People would ask me how I could listen to this stuff. I would reply that if they actually listened to Death metal it is more related to classical music than the stuff they played on the radio. Narrow mindedness breeds strange views that have no basis in reality or empirical truth. Bands like this paved the way for groups like Opeth.
great band, and I think you can probably credit them as one of the bands who invented melodic death metal.
i dunno how much i like at the gates. i do at least like em better than last time i heard em years ago.
This is an awesome album!!!! 5/*****
Well f**king put Gabe. =D
well put gabe
@blackmagi2- Just because you suck does not mean Death Metal does. Death Metal is the most underrated and underappreci a t e d genres of music in the world founded and created by this legend from sw florida by the name of Chuck Schuldiner (DEATH) the death metal scene still thrives today because it has the best fans around that continue to be loyal to the bands they love by buying their merchandise and going to shows. With no hype or airplay these bands are still relevant and timeless. RIP CHUCK
Death metal sucks, but At The Gates are pretty legit.
what the hell are yall talking about jimmi hendrex created all this !!!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 1 1
slaughter of the soul is a great album .its not AT THE GATES fault that a bunch of lame bands ripped them off and started calling it screamo or metalcore.
the_cadaver
Ok Mr. Lofty Metal Afficionado, you should at least have the dignity to punctuate your sentences. Anyhow, calling Death a "melodic death metal" band is just plain insulting. They were a THRASH band and the fathers of all death metal. Furthermore, At The Gates and Black Dhalia Murder have always been lame.

What's really funny, is the fact that you have the nerve to insult someone's opinion when you have such s**tty taste in music.
