They're a really underrated band unforuntately
    Thanks . I'll try and look a few of those up and hopefully I'll end up liking them. Well thats the way it is for Melodic Death Metal. Its a very obscure genre when you think about it. Like its one of my favorite yet at the same time how many HUGE NAME Melodic Death Metal bands do you see? If anything I have like 2 WELL known ones like In Flames and Children of Bodom. Like those seem to be Melodic Death Metal bands that everyone knows. Others I really like that took me a lot of digging to find are Mors Principium Est, Devildriver, etc. I love Melodic Death Metal but I agree that a lot of the bands are underrated because they just aren't VERY well known...at least in America that is.

    Here in Sweden melodic death metal is pretty big. From the top of my head I can mention In Flames, At The Gates, Dark Tranquility, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Soilwork and.. well, I suppose there are a lot more. There are countless less known bands following in the footsteps of In Flames and At The Gates.

    Out of those I love Amon Amarth! I just got into them a few months ago because of Runes To My Memory. Thats like my favorite song by them. Soilwork I've had one of their albums for a while but I don't listen to them often. But yea I know that you Europeans get all the sweet metal that we don't have here . There are so many bands I wish would come to America but don't . I know some Arch Enemy and I'm still looking into them, they are on my list of future bands to do research on . I guess in America one of the most well known Melodic Death Metal bands is Dethklok . Meantime half the people that know about them through the show Metalocalypse probably don't even know that they are a considered Melodic Death Metal. lol.

    In Flames, At The Gates, Dark Tranquility, The Haunted.. all I can say is !
    HELL YES

    I'm visiting Gothemburg after New Years, I hope there's something going on there ;_____________; Damn Dark Tranquility is gonna play some days after I arrive! >.<


    Btw, not talking about Sweden now though...how could I have forgotten about Borknagar, Norther, Agalloch, Arch Enemy and Swallow the Sun on my favourites list. ;_;

    So I ended getting into Insomium thanks to a few of you guys! . Thanks a lot for the suggestions. Like I said earlier Melodic Death Metal isn't as easy for me to find here in the states but for you Europeans its like everywhere, lol. I ended up getting their albm Above The Weeping World from 2006 I believe and I'm really liking it a lot . I also noticd in doing my research of them that they are coming out or have already come out with a new album calld Across the Dark sometime this month. Does anyone have it and if so how is it?

    If you want to start on Melodic DM, try Children of Bodom, Arch Enemy, Hypocrisy, Norther and Dark Tranquility ("The Episode" album). If you want something a bit more complex, Opeth's "Blackwater Park" and "Deliverance". :3 I dunno this Insomnium yet, gonna check. :x

    Well its not a start but more an expansion, lol. The Europeans have a wider access to a bunch of Melodic Death Metal bands in comparison to the states. I'm already into Bodom, Arch Enemy is on my list of bands to look into more, and Opeth I'm iffy about but have tried (I'll look more into them more too though for your sake ). The other ones I know nothing about . I've noticed Dark Tranquility has been mentioned a lot here so I'll specifically look inot them next .

    Thanks for reminding me lol. A quick Youtube search and it turns out most of, if not all of the album is up already. I haven't heard much of it but from what I can tell it's great. It's a bit more Doom-Metal oriented from what I've heard so far. As for when it's released, according to Wikipedia it came out in Finland on the 9th of September and was released in the states on the 15th. It comes to Europe on the 28th

    Oh, there's another Melo-death band I haven't recommended yet. Kalmah. They're a bit heavier than most bands I listen to but I love their use of keyboards.

    In the defense of Epica, the style relies of orchestra more. It is also easy to misjudge because the popular songs are generally the songs without death growls. IMHO Epica is nothing without the grunts. I guess it's a big mongrel, but I hardly see it as girly-operatic stuff. Epica isn't even as operatic as old Nightwish. Old Nightwish relied on heavy guitar and the operatic vocals of Tarya. So I dispute your characterization.

    Within Temptation is also quite different from all of the above, pretty much because Sharon's voice is significantly dominant over all other instruments. Not really operatic, but certainly more popular and closer to rock style. I grew bored with them years ago, but I still feel they are unfairly generalized - after all, these bands are all better than listening to your retarded classmates play "Barbiegirl."

    Melodic death metal's okay.

    Great thread!, I also enjoy metal music and im always looking for new bands to listen to. I listen to many bands, always Iron Maiden, i recently broke an arm and im forced to do cardio indoors, which sucks, but i started listening to some speed metal to keep up the rhythm. I’m starting to like this music, especially Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica.

    do you mean the heavy stuff like grunge? If so, is As I Lay Dying similar to what you're talking about?

    lol, yea we were just talking about Melodic Death Metal for a while because thats just the topic that came up lol. Obviously you can talk about any form of Metal here .

    Other than Melodic Death Metal I like quite a few Metalcore bands like Chimaira, Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium, All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Himsa(they broke up ), etc. I like some progressive metal too like Mastodon. So yea I just don't listen to Melodic Death Metal, lol, its just the topic that came up ATM .
