Okay, we all know where I stand with Arghoslent, but does anyone know what painting that is on the album cover? It's cool.

Cool list. I'm ashamed to say I've never heard of Arghoslent, but I'll be checking them out very soon.

One of my favorite recent melodeath albums is Fragments of Form and Function by Allegaeon from Colorado. It's their debut from last year, and it's very impressive for an American band.

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

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
I combined all my recs into one post. Here are few lesser known underrated albums:

Mors Principium Est - The Unborn
Nightrage - Sweet Vengeance
Gardenian - Soul Burner
The Fifth Sun - The Hunger To Survive
Be'lakor - The Frail Tide
Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - A Virgin And A Whore
Skyfire - Mind Revolution
Suidakra - Signs For The Fallen

Incredible band. I've only heard their latest album, but it's some of the most unique melodeath I've heard.

No way I'm letting this thread go without mentioning the following albums that must be listened to repeatedly.

Eucharist - Mirrorworlds
At The Gates - Terminal Spirit Disease
Dawn - Slaughtersun
Naglfar - Vittra
Prophanity - Stronger Than Steel

When you are done with these, congratulate yourself by listening to the coolest and weirdest, totally non-melo death album ever...

Arghoslent are fucking incredible, it's really a shame that they're so bigoted and hateful. They'd probably be HUGE within the metal scene if it weren't for their lyrics and ideology being the way they are... but I suppose that ideology is what drives the music in the first place.
