    Отличный пример того как дружно сохранять состав на протяжении уже третьего десятка лет, при этом принося удовольствие всем фенам и самим себе. Уважаю. Надо сказать, что только на третий год знакомства расслушал дискографию до конца.

    thank you, but that is the digital edition. i am looking for physical copies. i guess it's not happening anymore because last year that page said "CD / LP coming soon", and now that's not there anymore. this site still mentions the CD and LP : http://www.theprp.com/2013/08/30/news/dark-tranquillity-streaming-20th-annviersary-edition-of-skydancer/

    it's bc Misery's Crown is catchy and an easy listen for anyone.

    v the only thing you should understand that tastes differ.

    I don't understand why Misery's Crown is the most listened song when they have songs like Dreamlore Degenerate, Hedon, Surface the Infinite, The New Build and The Treason Wall that are much, MUCH better than Misery's Crown.

    That's true, most of those are power/symphonic. It seems though that people are labeling those bands as melodic metal.

    I believe Meat_Wolf had the most correct tag for Construct: "post melodic death metal" ;)

    May 2014
  • TheTailedBeast

    @spineshank155, one thing though...there is no genre "melodic metal". Sonata Arctica, Nightwish and Kamelot, they are power/symphonic metal. Melodic metal tag gives you NO info on what the music actually sounds like. Because what, melodies? Come on...

    , however as the description states, doesn't use harsh or growling vocals. Music might be melodic metal but again i wouldn't totally disregard the fact that DT uses harsh vocals. Maybe they do a hybrid of melodeath and melodic metal.

    May 2014
  • spineshank155

    From Construct's standpoint i can see that labeled and having mostly a style of melodic metal, there's not that much death metal in that album and in other DT's album starting at Projector.

    May 2014
  • spineshank155

    Also Metal-Archives then would be wrong as they list DT as strictly melodeath. I'm not saying that calling DT melodic metal is wrong, because some of their material doesn't have any death metal or melodeath as you would call it. There are bands like Demotional that get the melodeath tag too when they don't sound much like it. I don't doubt that many bands that label themselves as mdm incorrectly as many modern bands do this, but it doesn't mean there isn't an influence of sound in the style they do. Many bands today don't do just one style either so it can get confusing, especially with those who did 100% melodeath back in the days such as In Flames and Dark Tranquillity. Even metalcore bands are being mislabled as melodeath such as As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, Unearth, ect.. but those bands are not strictly metalcore either as bands like Earth Crisis are metalcore.

    May 2014
  • spineshank155

    When i think of melodic metal, bands like Sonata Arctica, Nightwish and Kamelot come to mind. Melodic Death Metal is a real rough patch of what it really is, > "Melodic Death Metal is a style of Death Metal which utilizes the guitar harmonies and melodic sound of Heavy Metal, while keeping the main characteristics of Death Metal, particularly down-tuned, heavily distorted guitars and harsh, aggressive sound. Melodic Death Metal contains more melodic guitar riffs and solos than traditional Death Metal. Occasionally, acoustic guitars are used as well. Blast beats are used, but not quite as often as they are in Death Metal. Some bands also add keyboards to their music. The vocal style is usually harsh, sometimes utilizing both clean and screaming parts as well." source Though i do 100% agree that DT's recent efforts is more melodic than death and can be confused as MDM. But you can thank DT and IF for confusing the masses.

    first few DT albums are definitely true melodic death c'mon now..

    May 2014
  • versionfiv

    you don't understand what melodic death metal is then... it's not a good or bad thing that you don't understand, it just is. melodic death metal is stuff like eucharist, dismember - massive killing capacity, december flower - where all life ends, sacrilege - lost in the beauty you slay & the fifth season, dimension zero - penetrations of the lost world, excretion - the dream of blood, without grief, ablaze my sorrow, a canorous quintet, later Centinex. DT is just melodic metal, there's no death here, not for many years. you will learn in time, I hope. I know I'm a stranger pushing you to recognize the truth and maybe you'll resist it even more since I'm telling you this. oh well. I too considered this stuff melodic death metal for about 10 years, so I understand where you're coming from, it's just not correct... I know I'm being a genre geek. I gave a lot of examples to maybe help you learn the difference.

    I hear melodic death metal in their albums, i don't know why people think that mdm should sound exactly like dm or sound like the first concieved mdm sound. [2]
