Best Melodic Death Metal Bands from Japan

Flav
List about the best Japanese metal bands, which play Melodic Death Metal.

The Top Ten

1 Imperial Circus Dead Decadence

Great band mixing Melodic Death Metal with Melodic Black, Symphonic and many other different styles. A very cool listen! - Flav

2 Serpent

Incredible band, they have only 2 albums so far, but these are insane records! Definitely check them out! - Flav

3 MergingMoon

They mix modern Melodic Death Metal with Electronic Music. For many metal fans (like me) those kind of mixes often sound cringeworthy, but in case of MergingMoon its actually very well executed! - Flav

4 Serenity In Murder

My favorite band of all time. Can also be considered as a symphonic death metal band. Amazing female singer, kill guitars, but the best part is the composition itself. Check it out if you haven't, I never seen anyone who disliked them yet!

5 Thousand Eyes
6 Intestine Baalism

While not fully a melodic death metal band, but a band which combines old school death metal with melodic death metal, they are a gem for both fans. fans of old school death metal shoukd focus on their early output "An Anatomy Of The Beast" and fans of melodeath should definitely listen to "Banquet In The Darkness", which is one of the best melodic death metal albums in my opinion (start with the 2nd song though)! - Flav
