Generally considered the apex of melodic death metal -- and the Gothenburg sound itself -- At the Gates' final record, released in 1995, remains a de facto influence on the American emo-metal scene, most notably among such mainstream leading lights as Darkest Hour, Bullet for My Valentine, Unearth, etc. The thrumming groove of "World of Lies" somehow manages to make Pantera sound watered down, while the dramatic riffage of opening cut "Blinded by Fear" and the loud-as-hell, near-math coda of "Under a Serpent Sun" laid the foundation for the metalcore of the '00s.
