Slaughter of the Soul Reviews

Reviewer :    (85/100)
Date : 
1990년 스웨덴의 Gothenburg에서 결성되었던 At The Gates은 지금은 비록 해산된 상태이지만 Melodic Death Metal계에 거대한 족적을 남긴 대그룹으로 평가된다. Slaughter Of The Soul 앨범은 정규 3집음반인 Terminal Spirit Disease와 함께 밴드 최고작으로 여겨지는 4집음반으로 이들의 마지막 작품이다. 통일성있는 연주, 절도있는 멜로디를 지닌 앨범으로 후에 예테보리 사운드의 열풍이 불어닥치자 멜로딕 데쓰의 흐름에 있어 재평가되었다. 세계적인 절품상태에 있었으나 2002년 Earache 레이블에서 본작을 리마스터 보너스반으로 재탄생시켜 다시금 빛을 보게 되었다.

멜데스의 후기사운드인 소위 모던멜데스 사운드의 효시로 평가받는 앨범.
