Riders of the plague is a great cd...

Am I the only person who thinks there's nothing really special about the Abscence and that they're very stale and generic?
Oh, btw COB= Melodeath (power metal w/ harsh vocals, lmao. THEY DON'T EVEN USE D-BEATS/POWER METAL BLAST BEATS! (I guess I only notice that b/c I'm a drummer?))

^You're crazy man, the absence is cool. To Scourge, I only heard like one or two songs form Disarmonia Mundi, but I really didn't like what I heard from them. Wintersun essential listening, and another good band that not many people listen to is Epoch of Unlight, they kick ass.

Skyfire anyone? Or maybe some Norther. Also I don't think many people heard much about Satariel or SuidakrA either.

Aha, another person who recommends Satariel!

I forgot to mention SuidarkrA, they're good as well.

cob is not melodeath, the occasional tremolo picking doesnt make it melodeath, power metal d beat? :S... k yeah i dont know **** about power metal drumming, im talking about the goddamn riffs with a power chord then the base not played for the rest of the measure, that's power metal right there or thrash.. ;( take the poppy/upbeat guitar leads... whoops we got flower metal! they have the occasional "deathy" powerchord riff or tremolo -mostly older stuff aye?-... having guitar leads and screams doesnt make it melodeath the riffs do ;( solos end up being solos, and cant account for that much of a genre, take gay purple's smoke on the water, ****ty ass rock'n'roll style solo with a classical styled cascaded part...- that could of fit into many other bands of other genres

uh... I liked the From Your Grave by the Absence... their new album seemed to lack something and didnt entertain me that much... better than alot of others I've heard lately though pscht wintersun.... "zomg lets have weak guitar leads backed by random chords... ocassionally thrown in a real riff and/or sweeping solo..." the singing can be good though... but long tedious listening (((((((( ... beyond the dark sun and winter madness... were good though

MPE owns.

Kalmah is probably my favourite though.



Yeah, no matter what melodeath bands I get into I always fall back to Kalmah. They're one of the top.
There is no end to creation.

I haven't read the whole thread but I felt the need to say Insomnium pwn, Above The Weeping World is a masterpiece
#53
no, children of bodom is definately not power metal but melodeath.
melodeath with SOME power metal influences, yes (keyboards and ****).
cob sounds pretty similar to in flames one way or another

Quote by The Virtuoso
I only heard like one or two songs form Disarmonia Mundi, but I really didn't like what I heard from them.

If the songs you heard weren't Resurrection Code, Nihilistic Overdrive, Venom Leach and the Hands of Rain, Process of Annihilation, or A Taste of Collapse (basically, half of MindTricks), then you have some more listening to do.

That's how I am with Dark Tranquillity.

I agree that CoB are melodeath, but they don't sound anything like In Flames.

^ Disarmonia Mundi are pretty sweet. DT ****in' slay n00bs. I agree that CoB don't sound like IF but i think they're not really melodeath.

Old Arch Enemy anyone? (Johan Liiva era that is).
And Kalmah is supreme greatness.


Not of fan of Johan, he was pretty balls. Bridge of Destiny still pwns, but because of the ****in' sweet lead at the end.

Kalmah are ****in' good.

I haven't really gotten into The Abscence. I just don't like thrashy riffs that much.

On that note, any bands similar to Kalmah or COB (without the previous' suckiness and cheesiness), you know, neo-classical riffs and such (no idea on how to describe the riffs properly).

CoB are definitely melodeath. Just because Alex Laiho looks like Avril Lavigne doesn't mean they're not melodeath.

Yes, I don't like CoB

Melo-death is my favorite of all the death metal subgenres. Nearly half my itunes library is filled with melo-death like Insomnium, Scar Symmetry, Mors Principium Est, Dark Tranquillity, Imperanon, Kalmah, Quo Vadis, Soilwork, Disarmonia Mundi, Amon Amarth, Wintersun, Arch Enemy, Arsis, Carcass, Children of Bodom, Dark Lunacy, Dispatched, ETOS, Norther, Noumena, and Hypocrisy etc. lol. I just love the epicness of most of the bands sounds. It's really great to listen to.

Norther are pretty good. I love Omen, Nothing, Death Unlimited.

Norther is decent. Nothing really special to write home about and it gets kinda boring after a while.
#72
I'd have to say Melodic Death Metal is my favorite subgenre of metal. I think I like almost every melodic death metal band I've had the pleasure of listening to. However, Soilwork and the Absence, I like not.
It's GANDHI not GHANDI

Finding it quite hard to get hold of Norther cds, have to get most of them imported.

The only melodeath I need is Arsis, The Black Dahlia Murder, Becoming The Archetype, and Dark Tranquility.
