146 Equilibrium Equilibrium Equilibrium is a German folk metal band. The band's music combines elements of folk music, power metal, black metal and symphonic metal with various other influences.

Equilibrium should not be this far down the list!

147 Rise To Fall

Please listen to Whispers of hope

148 Born of Osiris Born of Osiris Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band, formed in 2003 in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished, Your Heart Engraved, and Rosecrance, before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the more.

Great rising band, might be in top 10 in a couple of year

Most definitely. Top technical band.

149 Fire Within
150 Arghoslent Arghoslent Arghoslent is an American death metal band formed in the summer of 1990. The band's lyrics have been the source of much controversy for advocating racism, particularly promoting white supremacist views of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and The Holocaust.
151 Bloodshot Dawn Bloodshot Dawn

Incredible new melodic death metal band, if you haven't heard them yet, you are certainly missing out. Listen to their album 'Demons' and tell me that it isn't the epitome of what melodeath metal should be.

152 Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me is an American progressive metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr.

The greatest melodic, experimental death metal on the planet is at 130? You guys wouldn't know greatness if it walked up to you and kicked you in the testicles. They're so good that they render every band on this thread irrelevant.

The gold standard of progressive death metal. It is borderline cruel at what these guys do to every other band on this thread.

The best death metal band on this thread.

153 Morbid Angel Morbid Angel Morbid Angel is an American death metal band based in Tampa, Florida. UK music magazine Terrorizer ranked Morbid Angel's 1989 debut Altars of Madness first in its list "Top 40 greatest death metal albums".

This is definitely not a melodic death metal band.

Not melodeath, should be removed from this list - Juli

154 Fleshgod Apocalypse Fleshgod Apocalypse Fleshgod Apocalypse is an Italian Death metal band. Formed in 2007, the group resides in Perugia and are currently signed to Willowtip Records and Nuclear Blast. The band is known for their fusion of metal with technical death metal.

I really like this band, but its definitely not melodic death metal... shouldn't be on this list - Juli

155 Psycroptic Psycroptic Psycroptic is an Australian technical death metal band formed in Hobart in 1999. Mainstay members are Dave Haley on drums, his brother Joe Haley on guitar, and Cameron Grant on bass guitar.

Tasmanian freaks Psycroptic's album The Inherited Repression isn't human.

156 Saturnus Saturnus Saturnus is a band from Denmark formed in 1991 playing melodic death/doom metal, with touches of gothic metal.

Top 10, anyway.
Not commercially obsessed does not put you in top 10.
But pure talent and passion should. So, yes: Saturnus IS in top 10 melodic_death_doom bands ever!

157 Thousand Leaves Thousand Leaves A Thousand Leaves is the 10th studio album by the American experimental rock band Sonic Youth, released on May 12, 1998, by DGC Records.
158 War of Ages

War of Ages is a good Melodic Death Metal band. They've been around for a while now and they're great. They are Christian, but that shouldn't define if they're good or not.

159 Arsis Arsis

Their album "A celebration of guilt" is truly a masterpiece! Other tracks worth mentioning include "painted eyes" and "a diamond for disease"
