Not sure if im aloud doing this, but i don't see why not since theres threads for bands so why not discuss one specific genre.

If this is against any rules or anything, i guess i'll close it haha.

Discuss, thanks.

First off, I'm trying to find more melodeath, but I dunno... I'm finding it very difficult to find quality stuff. When I mean quality, I mean like.. At The Gate's "Slaughter of the Soul" kinda stuff. God, that album is so... I love it. I need more stuff like that album.

Any suggestions? I already checked the metal recomm. thread.. Didn't help too much. ;[

I NEEDZ ME SOME GOTHENBURG METAL!

YES! Mors kicks ass, every melo death fan should love them, and as for the Absence, the album is great, and I saw them in concert! They are really nice guys too, very down to earth and friendly.

Anyone know how to get the newer In Flames tone. Don't get me wrong, i love their old stuff also but the tone on the last 3 albums is really good. How can i achieve it?

I kind of like Melodeath. Old In Flames is what really got me into it and after that Arch Enemy and Children of Bodom (i dont care what anyone sais, their still mainly melodeath to my ears). Its just that the newer bands now a days all sound the same to me. I want the same qualities of a Melodeath band but with some newer melodies or newer concepts. It just sounds like a lot of them are at least using the same scales to keep coming up with the same sounding melodies. Thats just my opinion though...

Some good newer ones i have found are Kalmah and Wintersun.

Insomnium's Above the Weeping World is a stellar melo death album. Absolutely fantastic.


I saw them sunday night it was AMAZING.

I agree with the people who said Torchbearer and Mercenary were good.

Mercenary are amazing but they're not so much death metal to me, melodic as hell tho!

I... I should return to Arkham.

To me the only real Melodic death is Gothenburg, In flames, At the gates, Dark Tranquillity, the Haunted, there the real deal. Children of Bodom in more neoclassical death not melodic
Raise Your Hand If you Like:

3 inches of blood
Amon Amarth
Coheed and Cambria
Death Cab For Cutie
Every Time I Die

In Flames

^I've never understood why The Haunted are considered Melo-Death...Anything I've heard off of rEVOLVEr or The Dead Eye or whatever the new one is has sounded really -core to me.

That said, everyone here should check out Satariel...I'd post a link, but I'm lazy. :P The album "Hydra" is quite good, though.

Everyone in this thread phails for not mentioning Disarmonia Mundi.

Besides them, Insomnium, Dark Tranquillity, Arsis, The Absence, At the Gates, Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Mors Principium Est, and Blood Stain Child (EVERYONE here needs to check them out) all own.

meh, insomnium got old to me with above the weeping world too much of the pedal guitar leads and few riffing... since the day it all came down was masterful down ;X melancholic riffs and the shiznit... uh CoB is power metal with harsh vocals, add speed metal or thrash with their use of powerchords...

I agree. Its awesome, not a single bad track on there. I just got the other two albums before it, and although they are good in there own right, nothing compares to ATWW.

The black waltz is a pretty tasty album. And Follow the reaper is great (only heard it yesterday actually).
