Melodic death metal

Melodic death metal (also referred to as melodeath) is a subgenre of metal which combines the melodicness with the intensity of death metal. The genre is also known as Gothenburg metal, a reference to the city in Sweden where it originated. Originally the genre combined the harmony style and groove melodies of heavy metal with the harsh thrashing sound and vocals of death metal. Early melodic metal bands seem to have taken lots of influence from American bands Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: In Flames

    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers! http://www.last.fm/group/Unholy+Cult+of+the+Appraised+and+Damned

    @ToxicGriever The oldschool stuff is more death metal than anything else, but you might be right about the modern stuff.

    If melodic death metal evolved into something separate from death metal, then it should have its own name.

    It's funny, because these bands aren't trying to play death metal, they're trying to play melodic death metal. Melodeath just evolved into its own entity, it's about time people got over that because it's not going to get better in your favor.

    "most the bands here don't play death metal at all, so this tag is just melodic metal for me." I totally agree with this one. It's kind of hard to find a proper death metal band with fair use of melodies under this tag.
