NO! F*CKING NO! they're black metal with melodic metalcore riffs and hardcore vocals!!!1111
Before Clayman: Yes
Post Clayman: No
As simple as that.
They sound like the metalcore bands that copied them now. Hence, they're not melodeath, nowhere near it, probably bordering upon metalcore themselves.
dawns is just a term for awsome .pimp the shit, bad ass , ballin . and fucking rockin all in one super word lol
Dude, do u even know what melodic death metal is ? OK first of all i`ll copy paste the definition of melodic death from wikipedia ( srry for not having copyright )
Melodic death metal (also referred to as melodeath) is a subgenre of death metal. Some bands have formed their own brand, dubbed Gothenburg metal named for the region it originated in. Originally the genre combined the harmony style and groove melodies of heavy metal with the harsh thrashing sound and vocals of death metal. Later the genre evolved due to many different influences, a notable evolution in the genre being the addition of keyboards.
And guess what. Why do u call it death metal ? Cuz especialy the vocal sing about love and death.
I´m afraid I don´t quite follow you there.
Also, wikipedia doesn´t = god
No there isn't. Are you fucking retarded? "The way it was meant to be played?" By who? Moron.
Besides which, IF kinda pioneered melodic death metal alongside DT and ATG. ATG is gone. If anyone gets to say how melodic death metal ought to be played, it's IF and DT. So let's not be total retards here.
I don't follow that logic either, tbh.
However, that wikipedia definition is accurate.
I don't think In Flames have played real Melodeath since Whoracle. I'd argue Colony onwards is simply heavy metal, because it's a pretty drastic change in style. DT have kinda moved in and out of the melodeath genre but are currently there with Character and Fiction. In Flames now are definately not melodic death metal, again, I'd be inclined just to call them heavy metal at this point, same with Soilwork.
IMO they drifted a lot from their original sound, and that takes a toll. They haven't been melodic death metal, but it sounds like they're starting to get back their mojo. I see ASOP as kind of giving us some hope after CC, that they could start getting back into their groove.
My vote is yes.
You know some of these new songs are def Melodic Death Metal....Sleepless Again and Condemned
Who cares what they are.
They're In Flames, and I don't think any one band sounds exactly like them right now.
Not the point.
The point is pride. Me vs Uneasy_Conscience, laying it all on the line. So please vote yes.
There's nothing "death metal" about them anymore. Absolutely nothing. And for the last few albums up until this brand new one, they were barely melodic anymore too. They were just another band doing muddy-sounding heavy crap.
So no, they're not melodic death anymore. This isn't even up for debate really. Anybody who votes yes really has no grasp of what melodic death metal is.
New In Flames sounds like an average American metalcore/emo band, which makes me uke:
No they don't
mweh, not emo shit, but Anders has writen some dumb lyrics.
''I FEEL LIKE SHIT BUT ATLEAST I FEEL SOMETHING!''
Couldn't he write better?
They really sound neither metalcore nor emo...in any way.
I would classify them as an average to above average metalcore band now and would submit to you that if they had changed their name post Reroute to Remain no-one would be having this argument.
