Don't like the genre of swedish melodic death. But there is 2 albums:
1. At the Gates - the red in the sky is ours
2. At the Gates - with fear I kiss the burning darkness

Awesomeness.

In Flames- Clayman, Whoracle, Colony, TJR

At The Gates- All of them!

Soilwork- APP, FN5, NBC

Darkane- ES, LOL (lol)

Arch Enemy- AOR, BB, WOS

The Haunted- THMDI, OKW

I used to love this kind of genre, especially when I started learning guitar. Shame a lot of this bands turned into shocking pop acts now. Would love to hear some underground MDM now as I never bothered to find some after the mentioned bands turned into bringer of fags.

By the way this is my fav Melodic DM band these days:



Haven't enjoyed an album of this genre for a long time!

+9001

i'd also add some early Dark Tranquillity (later ones are also good, but i'm almost a fanboy so...). Eucharist are kinda ok. Intestine Baalism are pretty good iirc (it's been a while)

+ 1998-2006 Amon Amarth

5 years ago I could add 10 more covers, but I am totally out of melo death now, and I don't even remember half of the stuff Ive been listening to back in those days.

Edge of Sanity - Crimson II is the only album in this style that's ever really had any lasting impression on me.

that album was utterly insulting to me to be honest. after hearing this band play stuff like this

everything else they've done is just straight up unacceptable

THIS IS MY OPINION GUIZ

I'm probably just part of the extremely small minority that thinks WatN is the best album they've ever made. Never even got into their other albums.

Also, Intestine Baalism.

Yes, much better because they weren't "melodic death metal" yet. Slaughter was their low point for me.

I'd say that's more prog DM than melo.
