Quality & Originality:At the Gates are the original melodic death metal band. They are the
originators of the Swedish melodic death metal sound. At war with
reality picks up where the band left off when they disbanded in 1996.
This album is amazing. The quality of the tracks is very high. Heavy as
hell but highly melodic at the same time. This album is a thick slab of
metal and one of the most anticipated metal albums of the year.
AWWR is an amazing follow up to the genre defining Slaughter of the Soul.
My Opinion:I have always felt that At the Gates were way ahead of their time. They
are as relevant as ever and At War with Reality fits into the modern
metal category. Bjorler's riffs are fantastic! The album ranges from
really aggressive material to absolutely mind numbingly beautiful. The
heavy riffs match well with the avant garde stuff and the leads are the
best to date. I have always loved the contrast in styles that AtG play.
Erlandson always seems to play the right beat for the tune. Lindberg is
in top form and sounds like a possessed beast! You can really hear the
passion he brings to the band.
Overall & Favorites:The circular ruins, At war with reality, the night eternal. I'm gonna
rate this album at a 9/10. It is a great follow up to Slaughter of the
Soul and as an old fan it is very satisfying.
