Ensiferum - Iron
Don't call this album Viking metal. It's definitely not (although their later stuff is). It's just damn good melodic death metal. Iron, to me, is why I think of partying (as much as you can to metal) when I think of melodic death metal. It just sounds really happy, and it's really easy to sing along with. No complex music to follow, just good and simple fun.

Fave tracks: Sword Chant, Slayer Of Light, LAI LAI HEI

This, mainly on the In Flames part.

And if Slaughter of the Soul isn't number one, you better do sum 'splainin'.

Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side

I actually find a lot of Amon Amarth to be really boring, but they pretty much hit the nail on the head with this album. Lots of fast-tempo stuff and memorable songs. I consider this to be AA's best album by far. Again, don't call it Viking metal! Songs like Valhall Awaits Me and Cry Of The Black Birds have a lot of emotion in them and I get chills when I hear them. Fantastic stuff. The mid-tempo stuff actually does a good job of not just sounding like filler, either. It creates a great soundscape.

Favorite tracks: Asator, Runes To My Memory, Cry Of The Black Birds

Decent enough start. I used to be super into the genre but I've gotten tired of it over the years and the scene has gotten really stale. I'm still a sucker for a sugary melodic death riff though.

Dissection's Storm of the Lights Bane is essential melodic black/heavy metal or whatever you wanna call it lol

For In Flames, The Jester Race, Whoracle, and Colony are obvious classics.

COB has become shitty ala IF, but Hatebreeder, Follow The Reaper, and Hatecrew Deathroll are good fun.

Sorry for hijacking the thread lol... I'll wait until after you finish your list to say more

You should hear these albums Hornets of the Pogrom, Galloping Over the Battle Ruins and Incorrigible Bigotry. They will redefine what you thought melo-death could be.
Also Those Once Loyal and An Anatomy of the Beast.

Carcass - Heartwork

Of course the pioneers of grind and goregrind would make one of the first, and one of the best, melodic death metal albums. Pound for pound, I thought Carcass was always a better melodeath band than straight up grind. Love 'em both, but yeah. I love Jeff Walker's voice so much on this album. It's definitely a step backward in terms of intensity (I mean their first demo was Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment, you can't get more extreme than that) but they make great use with the slower tempo for some pretty awesome guitar solos.

Fave songs: Heartwork, Arbeit Macht Fleisch, Doctrinal Expletives
