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

Most definitely. Top technical band.

146 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.

147 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.

148 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.

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.

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