Dark Tranquility and Insomnium are good too, havn't heard of the other ones. 
But I also like:
In Flames
Ensiferum 
Slipknot
Avenged Sevenfold
Eluveitie...

Annie

Avenged Sevenfold is not melodic death metal, it's just metalcore; Slipknot is alternative/nu metal.

Is Between the Buried and Me considered melodic? or even a death band? If so definitely them! love their album colors how its so crazy and different then your usual metal album (In my opinion)

First of all, hello there ! Smile Nice to see a new face around here. BtBaM is not death metal, as far as I know it's progressive metalcore. But I do agree, Colors is definitely an unusual album.

Opeth, if you consider them as such.

Dark Tranquillity & Eluveitie if not. There's not too many bands I can stand w/cookie monster vocals, the music itself really has to stand out for me to overlook/get used to 'em.

IMO Mercenary from 2002-2008 was as good as melodeath gets.  They had VERY heavy power metal influences but were still clearly a melodic death metal band.  I've yet to hear a band use a variety of vocal styles as well as they did during that period.

I guess I'm not much of a fan either, because I can't think of any other can't-miss recommendations.  I dig most of Scar Symmetry's stuff and Skyfire is pretty cool, but off the top of my head that's about it.

Hmm...if weŽre talking more old school death metal acts with melodic elements IŽd mention the Necrophobic and the Unanimated debuts. They are certainly not melodeath, but just a slightly more melodic (and blackened) take on old school Swedish death metal.

The only melodeath I own is Wages Of Sin by Arch Enemy (which I barely ever listened to apart from the first two songs and the priest/maiden covers on the bonus disc) and the 3 most recent Amon Amarth albums.

I've heard Slaughter Of The Soul by At The Gates once too, but didn't care for it.

Other than that, the genre is an absolute mystery to me.

Do Amorphis (My Kantele period) count? Otherwise Dark Tranquility. And I find Amon Amarth pretty melodic!

Just found about these guys a few days ago. Sounds good to me Smile

They are from Quebec, but I'm reading that the singer is originally from Morocco?





Just ordered the first album (first video), hopefully it'll get here by Christmas.
