At The Gates

One of the prototypical bands of the so-called NWOSDM (New Wave Of Swedish Death Metal), At The Gates progressed from a more faster, old-style death metal on the earlier albums, to a more polished (but still quite heavy) death style on Slaughter Of The Soul that might be likened to, say, Clandestine-era Entombed. The band broke up late in 1996, with three members forming The Haunted, though there have been some reunions, and in fact as of late 2010 they are together again with plans to play some festivals in 2011.
