18:53 - Ilham I hears you get a cave for each new ATG bought, along with a flash of neuralizer so you can appreciate it. [link]
18:48 - Mattybu I wish I had a cave and/or the new At the Gates album
18:42 - Ilham To your cave Joe, go spend some time with it and forget your expectations, silly.
18:17 - FotisKanios everyone expected the new s.o.t.s. with at the gates which is why most of them are dissapointed . if you spend some time with it (alone..in a cave lol) and actually dive into it . Boom . 8 !!!!!!!!hahaha
18:08 - MetalDoomMaster Yeah if I'm feeling masochistic I might try it again sometime.
18:06 - !J.O.O.E.! I managed one play of it. That should be enough for a life time :P
Lately I've actually been liking this band's previous outputs too but this album surprised me how good it is, honestly.
Much darker than anything they ever put out before, some tracks have a really gloomy/somber atmosphere and the vocals are much rawer/much less produced. I also dig the lyrics a lot, though TDWP was always quite strong in that area. This is a band growing up.
I'm convinced that if these guys actually tried, they could write some pretty decent material worth an 8 or so. There're some pretty damn groovy riffs here and there, but overall this is essentially an aural molestation.
