this month: in flames, kalmah, bodom
recently: arch enemy, soilwork, dark tranquillity

kalmah and DT ended up quite impressive, all the other recent ones havent seemed to impress me (except in flames, to go from such an influencial band to.. pop.. the way they have is quite impressive to me).

seems like melodic death metal is starting to fade out in favor of more symphonic and technical styles.

not to mention, has anyone else noticed that their tone has sucked BAD as of late? especially soilwork which went from its searing mechanical sounding krank tone to.. a 15 year old's imitation of slipknot's rig? or arch enemy's new phased-to-@#$% scooped amps.

arch enemy is still going melodeath, right? i agree with you on the tone, i thought the tone on doomsday machine was ideal. but rise of the tyrant was still really awesome

damn, i ordered bodom, DT, and firewind together - and forgot about kalmah

dang i havent heard any arsis in a while, definitely looking into that one!!!

for non-melodeath theres also meshuggah's obzen, which is damn impressive.

Eh, I don't like Meshuggah. But, for some semi-melodeath, Opeth are releasing a new album soon, they have two leaked songs on youtube and the whole album is leaked if you wanna check it out.

Well, you can listen to it on youtube (The Lotus Eater and Porcelain Heart)

They're both ace tracks, this'll probably be my favorite Opeth album so far.

It didn't seem possible, but apparently Messiah can spam even more now.
