    I'd post it but imageshack is slow and shit and I can't be buggered.

    Terrifyer, it's not like people follow God any less anywhere else.

    SotS is overrated, though by far not the most overrated metal CD out there. ATG's other releases are not overrated. There are many bands that are more overrated than ATG are.

    I love TSD. Slaughter of the Soul is decent, but WAY overrated. Overall, this band sucks and I do not want to see them get back together.

    I like how when someone doesn't like an album, that renders it overrated simply because some people like it. What a dumbshit the thread started happens to be.

    You want overrated, look at most of Nuclear Blast's and Century Media's rosters.

    FFS At The Gates was one of the best metal acts out there... how can you say shit about red in the sky or termina spirit? ok ok.. slaughter of the soul is overrated... but damn you freaking fools, if they didn' played the way they played, melodic death metal could have sounded different... it was prog melodic death metal dammit.. respect is due.

    ps: anyone who backslaps me is gy

    I agree they are overrated generally, even there early material which everyone seems to praise. However they were a consistent band, and have some good stuff here and there.

    The three best bands to ever come out of Sweden:

    1. Bathory
    2. At the Gates
    3. Candlemass

    It's IMPOSSIBLE to overrate At the Gates' early works, simply because "The Red in the Sky is Ours" is VASTLY FUCKING SUPERIOR TO ANY OF THE HALF-ASSED GARBAGE YOU CUNTS LISTEN TO.
