At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Originally issued in 1995, Swedish death metal dealers At The Gates' masterful Earache Records debut Slaughter of the Soul is universally regarded as one of the most important and influential metal albums of all time ranking aside landmark efforts by the likes of Metallica, Slayer and Iron Maiden. Produced by Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Opeth), it expertly marries melodic sensibilities with razor edged aggression to devastating effect on such behemoth tracks as "Blinded by Fear," "Cold" and "Suicide Nation." Slaughter of the Soul has been remastered from the original master tapes using 'FDR' - Full Dynamic Range mastering - allowing the music's nuances to truly shine through. It results in a more ferocious and dynamic sound which enables the listener to immerse in the full audio heaviness like never before.
