    AT THE GATES for sure...Many in here might say In Flames but we all know that AT THE GATES was the start and the best of them...

    Start of Death Metal in general? I'd have to totally disagree on this. Death, Possessed, Necrophagia, Suffocation, Morbid Angel...yadda yadda is the start of Death Metal. Now if you said Grotesque instead of ATG I wouldn't have said anything. At The Gates made some great albums (RITSIO, WFIKTBD) But in no way was the start of death metal. In Flames either. Now unless this is suppose to be about "Melodic Gothenburg Metal" then I'm sorry...but until then...I don't agree at all...might be personal, but it's the truth.

    I was talking about swedish melo death metal...Of course they aren't the start of death metal that would be ridicilous...I meant they are like the father of bands like IF,DT and all the melo death bands exist now...Indeed IMO they are better than any of them...No melo death band can ever top At The Gates...The thread is about Death metal bands feel free to mention any death metal band being the best death metal band...For me the best death metal band ever is ATG...(And Slaughter Of The Soul is GODLIKE)

    Actually, Grotesque,Dismember, Grave, Unleashed, and Entombed were all before At The Gates , and if you say MELODIC DEATH METAL the obviously you havent listened to enough Dismember. To me Dismember would be the first. At The Gates and Inflames are my favorites of the second wave that refined the melody.

    Everybody talks about ATG, IF, DT; ok those are good but what about Hypocrisy? Sure they are not really the same thing but for me it's one of the best metal band from Sweden. Feel free to comment.

    Hypocrisy rocks too. Their last album with Horgh on drums slayed pretty hard.

    I just bought Immolation's first album good brutal stuff. Bloodbath with Peter Tagtgren ruled ass. I have the album before that with Mikael and the growls are amazing but the production was horrid. Not clarity wise but guitar wise. I need to relisten to it and maybe buy the first record maybe that sounds better.

    I think you've gotta be looking at albums like Carnage's "Dark Recollections" and Entombed's "Left Hand Path".

    Add to your list Arch Enemy, Atheist, Carcass, Cynic, Hypocrisy, Necrophagist, etc. Too many good bands

    ^ Bloodbath is a side project, dunno if they count as a "band" or not, but they are quite good.

    My vote goes to Opeth, and if you consider Meshuggah tech-death, they're up there, too.

    As for Melodeath, In Flames was pretty good for a while, and Arch Enemy's Doomsday Machine and Wages of Sin are both fun albums. Insomnium is thoroughly meh.

    Oh yeah I forgot Opeth *slaps self*. Definitely on my list as well.
    I like Insomnium purely for the guitar work.
