Best Japanese Melodic Death Metal Albums

The Top Ten

1 Cradle of Insanity - Serpent
2 Kurooshiku Saita Seisan Na Mukuro Wa Kanaderu, Itooshiku Saita Shoujo Wa Seisen No Kotoba Wo Utau - Imperial Circus Dead Decadence

Absolutely AMAZING record, one of my all time favorites. Each song has its own unique identity and they are all very memorable. Kimiko's singing is beautiful and very much suits the melodic parts of each song, her voice adds so much to the many incredible choruses on this record. Rib:y(uhki)'s death growls are brutal and his high screams are the best I've ever heard. The guitar work on this album is just stunning, an amazing mix of symphonic black metal, melodic death metal, and power metal. The drums are completely ridiculous, the drummer even has drum playthroughs of ICDD songs on his channel, CHECK THEM OUT. My only complaint is that bass is slightly drowned out among the insane guitars, drums, and vocals. This album is a NECESSITY for anyone who likes extreme metal, it is one of the best metal released ever in my opinion, and it is criminally underrated.
