    Melo death is Gothenburg. Melodic death is just that, melodic death metal. The former is a misnomer.

    When I was younger I would make the argument that viking metal and folk metal are two different things, too. The former being shit like Moonsorrow and Tyr, maybe using keyboards, the latter using actual folk instruments. I'm not sure if I would bother arguing that anymore, but melo-death and melodic death are definitly different.

    i always thought that if it sounded like hammerheart, it's viking.
    only bands like morrigan, nachtfalke and ereb altor were in.

    Yeah, let's start splitting subgenres too so that the exact same subgenre ends up as more than one genre. :lol:

    Melodeath is just the short version of Melodic Death.

    Death: Opeth
    Thrash: Nevermore/older big four
    Power: Iced Earth/Blind Guardian/Nevermore
    Prog Metal: Opeth/Nevermore
    Classic: Mercyful Fate/Iron Maiden
    Hard rock: Alice In Chains
    Doom: Solitude Aeturnus
    Black: Dimmu Borgir/Ihsahn
    Melodeath: At The Gates/Carcass
