The rest of their albums sound absolutely nothing like this. They have odd time signatures, syncopated rhythms and just crazy shit all over the place. They can be a bit inaccessible. Try Terminal Spirit Disease first if you're looking to get into their back catalog.

By childhood, I really meant from the age of 12 onward. I guess teens would have been the more appropriate term.

Red in the Sky is brimming with potential, but it just fails in so many ways. The songs they play off of that album live actually sound way better because the live recordings have better production and Tomas doesn't sound like an animal being raped. Neverwhere is amazing though and I do really enjoy the complexities of their first two albums, since the Burning Darkness is their best IMO

also the production on TRITSIO is part of why it rules so hard you just gotta adapt to it, if you've been sterilized by lame production like on this album of course you aren't gonna appreciate it right away

I worked through their discography in an odd order, so I never got treated to the crisp production until I was already familiar with the old material. I bought Burning Darkness, Red in the Sky, Slaughter, Gardens and then finally got Terminal last.

That intro is so fucking killer.
