Melodic death metal

Melodic death metal (also referred to as melodeath) is a subgenre of metal which adds melody to 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: Amon Amarth

    All these bands that appear at the top artists, haven't much to do with melodic death, because they mixing it with female folk pop metal. German bands like Neaera, Heaven Shall Burn, Fall of Serenity and Symbolic understand much more about pure melodic death.

    Most of Dreamshade's stuff can be considered melodic dm... first album basically entirely. Their second album is more metalcore influenced. Few of my latest melodeath finds are Gates of Ishtar, Sacramentum (melodic black/death like Dissection) and Roots of Death.

    @feelmyterror Dude, not liking every genre is not the same as being "elitist true metalhead". As he said, this is the melodic death metal page.
