First Melodic Death Metal band

98 Diablo

It's a shame Diablo (FIN) is so little known abroad! Their newest album Silver Horizon kicks so much ass!

99 Within The Ruins

This needs to be a little more mindful of your bands. Just listen to "Enigma" or "Ataxia" parts 1, 2 & 3. Your tiny little metal minds may not even be able to take it. p

This is "Brutal Melodic Death Metal". You think that style is not possible? Listen to Intestine Baalism!
It merges the pure death metal sound (raw and brutal) with euphonious melodies perfectly. I didn't hear of any other band playing like them. Definitely unique! - Lemoon

They Need to be way higher, seriously! They are one of the best and most outstanding bands here!

Very brutal and yet harmonious melodeath from Japan! I really dig this unique band.

If you don't know them, listen to the song "Banquet In The Darkness"! - Flav
