This one new song is already better than the entire last lp, which I could not get into at all after many, many attempts.


"To Drink From The Night Itself"

I even like that the main riff sounds like "Blinded By Fear".

I'm pretty disappointed. I thought the last album was pretty good but this track is very bland and sounds like a rehash. Not expecting them to reinvent the wheel but ripping off their own riffs is pretty weak. Hopefully this is just a bad decision to release this as the first track and the rest of the album will be better.

Why it sounded so muddy and compressed?

Don't really know the previous album but I don't hate SotS as much as many seem to. This sounds crap.

The main chord progression sounds too emo for my taste

It's pretty bland. And I'll still take Grotesque any day to At the Gates. They're just taking Slaughter of the Soul and rehashing. Paint by numbers.

Well I do! Maybe not "hate" but I say it's boring and never understood the praise. Borderline metalcore IMO.

You don't like anything. It's to be expected Laughing

You may think I'm nothing but negativity but that's not true. Slaughter of the Soul is just another big production album that is boring. Older ATG is of course good.

It only sounds like "borderline metalcore" because metalcore bands copied At the Gates. That's like saying Darkthrone sounds like too much like Darkclone bands.

Not liking it is fair though, as is any opinion.

Never thought of it as of a metalcore album, but I also never liked it.

Finally someone with the guts to tell the truth. Just like the majority of Slayer's riffs sound like something Earth Crisis would play! Laughing

SotS isn't my favorite of theirs by a long shot, but I think it's a good album. Sounds more like Slayer to me than anything else. I remember an interview with Tompa maybe 10 years ago when he was reflecting back on the album and said something along the lines of he's surprised Slayer never sued them.
