    But the fact of the matter is that this page is also for fans of bands like Soilwork, mid-era In Flames, Disarmonia Mundi and similar bands. Many of which would absolutely be interested in Dreamshade. So there.

    v to be fair he is right.. If i wanted melodic metalcore recommendations i'd simply visit that page. I visit this page for melodic death metal, not modern melodic metal or whatever.

    Fans of Dissection might like Unanimated, a very good but forgotten melodeath band.
