    Easily. However, I've not listened to it in maybe 10 years. Never been big on In Flames.

    The Red in the Sky is Ours begs to differ.

    Eh. Even that one is in crowd friendly overrated cat got my nuts death metal. It's alright but I've never understood why it's usually posted with the greatest death metal albums of all time. I've tried it plenty of times.

    @Phylactery When it comes to extreme metal of the melodic variety, In Flames was already getting destroyed by infinitely more complex and ambitious bands.

    Because Mort says it is and we can't question that because otherwise we are racist, sexist, etc.

    I agree with you though. It's not as great as people say it is.

    This is true but I still enjoy the Jester Race and some other tracks by them.

    TRitSiO is underrated not overrated if anything. Remember the average metal fan still thinks Slaughter of the Soul is their only good album.

    That says "in crowd" friendly, not crowd friendly. You haven't been here for a while so maybe you don't get the reference? Eh. Let @HamburgerBoy explain it to you.

    i really enjoy the mid-'90s gothenburg sound in general, and it's actually primarily at the gates' fault that it went to shit. you can instantly date any of the more tasteful stuff as being prior to (or alongside) SLAUGHTER OF THE SOUL and THE GALLERY, it's a shame it didn't generally continue on after that even in the underground, 'twas just one of those flash in the pan crazes.

    I pretty much agree, although I wouldn't lump The Gallery in there with Slaughter of the Soul. It was my first metal album way back when so I have rather strong nostalgia for it. I haven't listened to in a very long time because I'm scared that I might find it saccharine these days - I'd rather keep my nostalgic memories of it.

    There are plenty of bands from Gotherburg that don't fall into the "melo-death" sound anyway, so I'm not sure why everyone only ever seems to associate the place with that sound.

    I don't particularly care for At the Gates,much myself. I've tried The Red in the Sky... and Slaughter of the Soul, and both were just eh to me. I do like Dawn though and maybe a few other Melodic DM bands... but its few and far between.

    I'd rather listen to thrashy post-SOTS/"metalcore" stuff like The Haunted than most of the early stuff tbh.

    Better than Blessed are the Sick. A beautiful marriage of Destruction and Mercyful Fate.

    i like THE GALLERY too but i think it represents a turning point along with SOTS and in flames etc.

    but i mean bands like eucharist, decameron, embracing, sacrilege, early septic flesh, early crown, unanimated, ablaze my sorrow, a canorous quintet etc. i'm always looking for more bands in that kinda style, but they're hard to find after '96 or so because 'melodic death metal' suddenly got overrun by a thousand shitty ATG/DT/IF wannabes
