The Contenders: Page 8

141 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.

142 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.

143 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.

145 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.

146 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!

147 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.
148 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.

149 Arsis Arsis

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

150 Demon Hunter Demon Hunter
151 Sybreed

Sulphurinjection is a great song by them and I think they are the best because the piano and the opera sounding music from Karazan in World of Warcraft

Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Ã…kerfeldt has remained Opeth's only founding member and primary driving force throughout the years. Along with Edge of more.

No. There's a ton of melody in Opeth's progressive death albums.

Good band, but they are more progressive death metal than they are melodic death metal.

Melodic, symphonic, progressive. How many sub genres do we need - sextysex
