Dark Tranquillity – The Gallery (1995)

I remember people going crazy for these in the 00s era. Some of my friends idolized them but I never so much as ever looked their way, I’m unsure why. Anyway, today is the day I finally listened to The Gallery, and what a record it is!

I expected it to sound like At The Gates, but first impressions are more along the lines of Cradle Of Filth meets Children Of Bodom, but with a few layers of cheese scraped away. Yep. There you have it. That is my astute musical analysis of this thing. It was fuckin’ great, though. I’d listen to it again.
