Some of the finest guitar (and keyboard) work ever. This is balls to the wall, relentless, melt you're face off stuff. Very well written, a true wall of sound.
No doubt their best work and one of the best power metal albums ever! The vocals are breath-taking and the instruments are close to perfect! This album has it all from soft ballads like tallulah to power-metal anthems like black sheep. Perfect!
i just love tony kakko....and i love the way jani plays....and the songs are just wonderful. it's something that opened my eyes and made me see that there are different styles of metal not just death metal...now i really love power/symphonic..
Modern Black Metal's leading force. Insane drums, awesome keyboards, original guitar, diabolical vocals..."Triumphant" in every way.
the sound this band produced on this album is unlike anything ever heard.
Get over yourselves, his vocals kick ass. One of the darkest (and greatest) metal albums I've ever heard. A must have for any metal head's collection.
An album that is the ultimate combination of Swedish Death metal and hardcore. Great songwriting mixed with astonshing angry vocals. I punched a wall when I heard track tweleve...
They are far more better than any power metal band I've ever heard in my life
This is my favorite gothic metal ever, this album really had that hot topic quality to it and that what I was into back in Jr high so Nyphetamine best album from Europe
This band is mind-numbing! Never before has there been a band with such finger-twisting guitar and such brutally insane death metal vocals. Simply amazing.
A band that has found a perfect median between speed and harmony. And because they just keep getting better, this most recent release is their greatest piece of art. Finland's finest!
Pioneers of Black Metal in the nineties, this band reaches greatness with "At the Heart of Winter". Singer/Songwriter Abbath displays the best black metal vocals ever recorded.
A standout among standouts. One of many brilliant releases by In Flames. Not just good musicianship but very original writing and composition
Black Metal's greatest accomplishment. Old school Black Metal mixed with mind-bending musical composition. Norwegian Black Metal at it's finest.
the very best album by one of the very few heavy metal groups of all time. and, yes, they are British. also, they freaking rock.
Simply the most brutal anti-christian "Black/Death" Metal album ever spawned from the depths of hell...and I love every f***ing second of it!!!
