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: Hypocrisy

    Best melodeath band: Be'Lakor -- seriously, try it guys. More melodic than Insomnium, more powerful than Amon Amarth. Pure blast.

    Thanks for all your suggestions. Desultory was just the band I was looking for.

    listen to everything i've tagged as melodic death metal misanthropist. i didnt mean offense with my lol just found 'raw melodic death metal' to be a very funny phrase. the only bands that makes me think of are excretion and sarcasm. those bands really kick ass by the way, especially excretion - dream of blood demo. you would probably like their full length album more though.

    maybe i have used the word raw in a wrong way, whatever lol, just looking for some fast melodic death metal bands with no clean vocals which sound similiar to tbdm, atg or arsis
