think it's cool to become alternative metal now?

Soilwork and In Flames especially.

Two bands that started out strong and now are selling out (I still like Soilwork though)

I mean Dark Tranquility, Scar Symmetry, and Darkane don't sell out and they seem to be doing fine. Holographic Universe is a good album, Scar Symmetry has always just seemed like a melodic wall of sound and they haven't changed, which is great.

Soilwork and In Flames are the only melodeath bands gone alternative AFAIK =/

And take it to the Melodeath thread.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Scar Symmetry have always been awful IMO.

Melodeath is an unfortunate genre. When it's done well, it's bloody amazing. See: At The Gates. However, due to the catchy, accessible nature of the music, it's very easy for it to flip over into bland, mainstream mediocrity.

i like scar symmetry...

but yes At the Gates is probably the best melodeath band out there...considering they were one of the pioneers

Yes, but when he did that song it was Puff Daddy.
