prob the best heavily melodic (supposedly death metal) album,
This review is from: The Gallery (Audio CD)
this album was a landmark in the genre of melodic death metal. sounding different to the other two big gothenburg bands at that time (at the gates and in flames). on this release(probably their best, although others are worthy or a look), there is little or no bottom end to the guitars and most of the riffing is speed picked on the middle strings of the guitar. there are some real jems on this album, such as the sing-a-long friendly(seriously!! not a bad thing btw) punish my heaven, a superb opening song with an incredible riff. if you are new to the genre, buy this album, and if you're not, why dont you own it already?????
