Great album, great solos and unique songs.

I dig Arghoslent but I don't find them amazing like a lot of people seem to think. Most of what seems to be referred to as melodic death metal these days is very lacking on actual death metal. Bands like Arghoslent, Dismember, and Hypocrisy add melody to death metal more organically while current "melodic death" bands rely on super melodic guitar playing and actual death metal is barely noticeable besides in the vocals. That being said, I love both styles and try not to get hung up on genre names lol

Bolt Thrower and Intestinal Baalism are also solid, Wizzbang knows his shit.

Some of my favorites besides previously mentioned:

Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul
Amon Amarth - Versus The World
Insomnium - Above the Weeping World
Kalmah - Swampsong
Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt
