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

Not a big melodeath guy. I love Amon Amarth, and there are others too like Bodom, In Flames, Soilwork, and Dark Tranquility.

Heartwork should be at the top!

Also, I don't really see Dismember and Bolt Thrower as melodeath; rather, I see them as death metal that happens to be melodic. There's a difference, you know. death metal can have melody without being melodeath.

Dissection isn't "melodic death." They're black metal. Period.

Arsis - A Celebration Of Guilt

The first time I heard this album, I was absolutely floored. James Malone was (and pretty much still is) one of the greatest death metal guitar players and it really shows on here. ACOG is great because although it's definitely melodic death metal, there's technical death metal and hints of completely different genres strewn about. And unlike some of their more recent albums, I can't find a single song of filler on ACOG. It's just SOOOOOOOOO good. I'd totally recommend this to someone wanting to get into melodic or just straight up death metal along with all the classics.

Fave songs: The Face Of My Innocence, Seven Whispers Fell Silent, The Sadistic Motives Behind Bereavement Letters
