At the Gates is a legendary band that needs no huge introduction. We got Tomas Lindberg doing the tormented growling, the Björler brothers on guitar and bass respectively, also an inspirational musician named Alf Svensson on the guitar. Adrian Erlandsson behind the drumkit.

From the opener "The Red In The Sky Is Ours / The Season To Come" it's apparent that this album is no easy catchy ride. Complicated structures, strange riffs and multiple tempo changes define this very original piece of art. The strangeness of the music is in the very core of answering why The Red In The Sky Is Ours or "simply" TRITSIO, is nothing less than a masterpiece. Now masterpiece is a big word, it's easy to throw it around until it means nothing, but in this case there are absolutely no doubts. Every single entity of the band creates a work of immense originality; I mean, tell me where to find anything that sounds like this and I will kiss your dirty feet.

This album still has those elements that make At the Gates stand out from the pack, but the vocals prove weak compared to future releases. Nonetheless, its a damn good album and one that i will definitely keep.

For sure this is the best ATG album ... a true original melodic death - without boring arrangements and trade-oriented producing (like 'Slaughter Of The Soul').
I think this is considerably better than their overpraised fourth album.

Feh, did not care for this at all. People on here overrate At The Gate's early stuff way too much, even if not as much as others overrate Slaughter. At least Slaughter had hooks.

This may be my favorite old school death metal album. It's a pretty close between this and Left Hand Path.
Edit: I take that back, LHP is better

Yeah this album has a really nice and raw sound. I didn't like it at first but it grew on me over the years and I love the technical, unpredictable songwriting. At The Gates are kinda great in the sense that every release was a little different, but all quite good at what each did.

That is quite true. Each release seems to retain at least a bit of high quality material.

Funny. Their best album has the worse rating and their worst the best.
