so recently i've started listening to melodic death metal bands like dark tranquility, in flames, insomnium, at the gates, ect. and im trying to write songs like that. does anyone know what kind of song structure songs in this genre usually follow? also about how many riffs do i need cuz i already have about 4.
you need an intro riff, verse riff, chorus riff, a few bridges etc, take this life - in flames is a good example
just play it how you want it to sound.
