Though, I have to say many of their songs are pure Melodic Death Metal.
Yeah, I agree with everything you say. Emo is definitely not a derogatory title. Not to mention that they are associated heavily with metalcore/hardcore bands of the 2000-2005 era when it comes to touring and fanbases. It's kind of like making the argument that a band like Earth Crisis or All Out War sound directly like a metal band, but are without a doubt considered hardcore instead.
