    No you can like whatever you want, there is no either/or. Just saying that as far as pioneering SMDM, I've always leaned more towards the Carcass style.

    Yeah. I know who. I was trying to be divisive. You're supposed to get angry and rant in all capitals about what a tard I am for saying they suck.
    Damn.

    Haha, no...I think you've mistaken me for the kids who discovered ATG through bands like Devildriver. :p

    Fact: Heartwork is the best melodic death metal record that has been or will ever be recorded.

    Thread closed. Nothin' more to see here, folks.

    Carcass had this bluesy style in their songs that I completely loved. For me that's melodic death metal, not twin Iron Maiden guitar solos.

    I was responding to Karen, but that works.

    I pretty much randomly discovered ATG, liked one song and bought With Fear I Kiss the Burning Darkness. Not as big a letdown as when I did a similar thing with Entombed, but I wasn't entertained for very long.

    Which Entombed album was it? If it was anything other than Left Hand Path, which is motherfucking gold, that's your problem!

    I did the aforementioned CDNOW/Amazon track listening with SOTS, and in the clips it sounded really cool. All I read were great reviews praising ATG for being the kings of melodic death metal, blah blah blah. I bought the cd, dug the first track Blinded By Fear, listened to a few more and liked what I heard enough to not throw the cd out the window, but that was about it. Then one day while taking a long road trip from Florida to Louisiana to see my parents I decided to listen to it all the way through. I was kinda disappointed.

    I wanted to like it as much as everyone else did, but I just couldn't. It wasn't bad by any means...it was just...meh.

    It was Same Difference, which is essentially the worst album I have ever owned by anyone.

    I've never even heard of that album, so it must be one of the Entombed albums no one acknowledges.

    It was pretty bad.

    There's a picture of a dog on the cover. It looks like a rap album.

    Probably a bit of city rivalry coming out there, no?

    I'd be pretty OK if the entire Swedish metal scene dried up and blew away.

    Yeah, since Stockholm has all the good classic bands like Dismember, Entombed, Grave (Visby I know but Stockholm style) while all the melody shit broke out down there and poisoned the metal scene ;) I'd have the same opinion if I lived in Gothenburg though, no retarded city patriotism going on :p
