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: Mors Principium Est

    TBDM must be in top 8, they easily beat at least a half of bands there

    In Flames should not be here either, they used to play melodeath but people still think they are a melodeath band. People keep posting new IF tracks in a facebook melodeath group that i'm a member of .

    um... ive been listening to that album since 2003, friend. its extreme power metal, not melodic death metal. saying "that's one of the best melodeath albums out there" does not reinforce your assertion with logic or proof that it is melodic death metal, it just makes you look like a butthurt fanboy. there is no death metal to speak of in that album. they use power metal scales and time signatures. they have screaming vocals, hence the extreme. not all power metal has to be about fairies and unicorns.

    Kalmah once released an album called Swamplord, rendering all your arguments void. That's one of the best melodeath albums out there.

    kalmah, norther, and bodom are extreme power metal. they should not be here at all. this tag is just as incorrect as the industrial tag here.

    If only Kalmah could replace either Arch Enemy or Amon Amarth, top.8 would have been perfect.

    One must have low self esteem or ego issues to feel the need to call a band or genre gay. Doesn't even explain what makes melodeath gay.
