Everyone all of a sudden gone nuts for this band they are like a sister band of In Flames. Which album should I start Id imagine they started the same way as In Flames their 90s albums were good but they then sold out to flavour of the month trends in metal in their later albums

They have a lot more than one good song imo. Their initial 4 albums had tons of great songs. Start with The Red in the Sky Is Ours & end with Slaughter of the Soul. Their sound on those 4 albums never strayed from the standard MDM formula, which they helped to mold.

At War with Reality is not bad, but sounds more like a band trying to copy bands who were influenced by At The Gates.

They don't have as many albums as In Flames. As far as output, they are more akin to the older thrash bands that put out a few records, broke up and then recently put out new stuff.

I haven't heard the new stuff.

As to where to start, Slaughter of the Soul, without question. And people didn't really start all of a sudden going nuts for ATG, heh. Slaughter is arguably one of the most important metal albums of the 90s. Not to oversell it, and it might not sound like a big deal now, but it was then. Even if you don't end up liking it, it was a pretty big deal.

I also would not say In Flames sold out to flavor of the month trends either, personally. Their sound evolved, no question. I like the later stuff. Not like a die hard fan, but I think it's good.

At The Gates has some fantastic Death/Thrash Metal albums, I would start with Slaughter Of The Soul
or Terminal Spirit Disease. They also have an early album under the name Grotesque called In The Embrace Of Evil that is quite good.
