Holy shit! They’re back! Dark Tranquillity is back! They’re Metal again! They’re Metal again! Satan is in his Hell and Dark Tranquillity is Metal again! No longer do they walk the Samael / Tiamat path of gayness. No more getting blown out of the water by bands who have cloned the style they helped create. Not only are they Metal again, this is as vicious and vital as they have ever sounded. I’m not fucking around. Every song is flawless beginning to end. Mikael Stanne’s tormented rasp is back and better than ever. In fact, only “Empty Me” features his clean sung style, and admittedly this is one of my favorites amidst a sea of soon-to-be-classics. I just can’t believe it. Over a decade later, we finally get the album that should have followed Enter Suicidal Angels, and every song is written to perfection. I’m in shock. I just want to scream it from the highest mountain top, Dark Tranquillity is back!
