Melodic Death Metal is an oxymoron

METAL and MELODY are in a love hate relationship,and it usually doesn't work out

While I agree it's a loose term, the fact that you think it's ****ty because it has melody is laughable

...I hate to be brutally honest, but you're a fukking idiot.
Melodic Death Metal is just a way to describe a specific subgenre of music.

METAL and MELODY go hand in hand 9 out of 10 times.

what? there is melody in plenty of metal bands. And not ****ty ones, In Flames Children of Bodom, Wintersun all have melodies in their songs. They all fall under a degree of death metal.

I'm not even a huge fan of melodic death metal but that statement makes me lose faith in metalkind.

Go back to your cave.

?!?!?

It's all a matter of opinion, metal isn't all about chugging riffs with an exorbitant amount of distortion...I mean look at Opeth, perfect blend of Death Metal and Melodic Music that combine on a number of their songs to create some of the best songs around. (Granted they aren't melo-death like say Insomnium, but they do provide a good counterexample...)

Are you talking melodic metal like Metallica's Fade to Black sort of thing? I have no idea what you mean hehe.


Are you retarded? How about clicking the links to find out what I'm talking about.

Bah, you don't need melody for music.


It's not what scales you use, it's how you play them. Try the Melodic and Harmonic Minor scales.

Melo-death gets older way faster for me, with it's sugar-coated melodies and twin guitar solos...

Ah well, agree to disagree.

I love how fans from both sides of the death metal spectrum are unable to have a mature argument of tastes without insulting the other genre.
Melodic death metal is not all cheesy watered down death metal/metalcore without breakdowns. There are some great standout bands in the genre if you're willing to look, and this new wave of melodeath bands cannot be used to make a generalization about the entire genre.
Death metal is not all chugging with exuberant amounts of distortion. The best bands of the genre know how to properly use melody (and dissonance) to give an overall feeling of aggression, the feeling that death metal fans look for in a good band.
Both genres are great.
Both genres have faults. Just like everything else.

Iron Maiden? Judas Priest? Spawn of Possession?

Anyways, for generic tasteless SotS ripoffs, chug open lowest string, throw some melodic minor notes in the 5th and 4th strings in there, and do the same except chug 8th fret on lowest string.

Seriously, you could probably list 400 bands who do stupid **** like that and get famous.

Or how about you describe what you're talking about properly so that those who are unable or unwilling to use youtube links can understand you. I was gonna help, but I don't fully get what you want, and posts like that make me very unwilling to be helpful.

Ah well, agree to disagree.

I kind of agree.....Straight Death Metal and Melodic Death Metal both get old after a while for me. I prefer a band that's somewhere in the middle with a sense of melody at times but still very heavy. I guess Death could be an example?
