    Oh. Reading through this thread, I see that almost everything passes as melodeath these days. However, this thread is unnecessary, as most of you already found the best melodeath band.

    And terminal spirit disease is great, while slaughter of the soul isn't.

    No one posted Disillusioned?

    They are fucking great, get anything but Gloria to start off with.

    Back to Times of Splendor is one of my favorite albums - epic, narrative, expressive melodeath with some amazing songwriting, Three Neuron Kings and The Porter are old-school melodeath and really good, and Gloria is pretty weird but has some very good moments.

    the best NEW melodic death bands (who have a lot of thrash moments as well) are in my Opinion: The Absence from Florida and Sylosis from the UK. Both bands are fresh sounding and intense/precise and memorable. check them out.

    Mors Principium Est's all albums are great (3 of them so far), Insomnium to me resembles more DT.
    And as someone mentioned, Edge of Sanity is a must!
    I'm not sure if someone has mentioned one of these or both but Omnium Gatherum and Noumena are also worth checking out.

    Insomnium
    Fatal Embrace
    IN THY DREAMS
    A Canorous QUintet
    Noumena
    Disinterment (obscure american melodeath with only one cd and bad production but oh those riffs, Kris norris ex darkest hour is the singer and guitrar player)
    Enforsaken
    EDge of sanity (Dan Swano is my lord and savior)
    Garden of shadows
    IN MOURNING
    unanimated
    Vehemence

    I guess i could have made this two posts but im lazy.

    I have plenty more melodeath but these are just the good ones i could think of while in class. My collection is like half melodeath lol

    I thought I posted in this thread a couple of months ago, but I don't see my post. That's ok...I think there was another like this titled "Rare melodic death" or something. Whatever.

    Eucharist - A Velvet Creation (1993)
    Depresy - The Grand Magnificence EP [1995/1996] (GET IT, you will NOT be disappointed...)
    Schaliach - Sonrise (this a rare gem, from Ole Borud of Extol in 1995...very underrated)
    A Canorous Quintet - Silence Of The World Beyond (1996)
    Dimension Zero - Penetrations From The Lost World EP (1997)
    Eucharist - Mirrorworlds (1997)
    Gardenian - Soulburner (1999)
    Suidakra - The Arcanum (2000)
    Quo Vadis - Day Into Night (2001)
    Garden of Shadows - Oracle Moon [2001] (doomier...but still catchy with pretty melodies)
    Eternal Tears of Sorrow - A Virgin and A Whore (2001)
    Omnium Gatherun - Spirits of August Light (2003)
    Nightrage - Sweet Vengeance (2003)

    These bands aren't super rare or anything...they're in my opinion, the best lesser known melo-death albums. There's of course more, but they've already been mentioned like Nightshade (swe) - Wield the Scythe, Mors Principium Est - Inhumanity, Ebony Tears - Torture Insomniae, Nonexist - Deus Deceptor, Amon Amarth - sorrow throughout the nine worlds etc.

    You mean Scar Symmetry pre 2009 :(

    although....their new album is rather catchy, will give it another go.

    Some of my Fav melo-DM albums

    Desultory - Into Eternity and Bitterness
    Unanimated - the first two, the new one is alright but overproduced
    Dawn - Slaughtersun

    a band that I just discovered is Gates of Ishtar, nothing unique as far as the style but the guys were amazing at balancing aggression and melody

    Ah yes - Unanimated and Dawn. Excellent bands. I wouldn't really label them melodeath though.. and I'm not quite certain that anyone looking for new bands here will enjoy them but.. they should. If not added yet I would propose we add Hypocrite and A Mind Confused.. also A Canorous Quintet.
