Background information

Guitarist Anders Björler commented that he couldn't "remember much" from the recording sessions for Terminal Spirit Disease. When compared to At the Gates' older material, Björler felt the tracks "were simpler and more to the point". A violin and cello are featured on the song "And the World Returned", cited as an example of the group's attempt to explore "ideas which were a little different".


Reviews for Terminal Spirit Disease have been mostly positive. Allmusic's Eduardo Rivadavia awards the album four out of five stars, and claims that, with this album, "At the Gates raised their creative stakes beyond most everyone's original expectations, and proved that what had once been a pretty standard and uninventive death metal combo was slowly becoming a true contender in the scene."

Track listing

All tracks written by Tomas Lindberg, Anders Björler and Jonas Björler, except for where noted.
