Best Melodic Death Metal Songs

I remember banging my head and the headache which followed the first time I heard this all-time killer...
And trust me headaches from metal music makes you happy!
Best melodic death metal song in the world!
I'm crazy about this song
Epic Song!...Especially the ChorusV 19 Comments
Insomnium is a great band with some of, if not the best melodies in melodeth. This is an epiphany of Insomnium's greatness and definitely one of the greatest examples of Melodic death Metal. My personal favorite with one of the best apprehensive intros with the riff starting alone and the drums growing in intensity, Great stuff!
Beautiful song with truly poetic and with meaningful lyrics. True to the melodic death metal genre at the same time. A real melody and masterpiece that sets a new standard in music.
Good song. I like 'The Killjoy' and 'The Day It All Came Down' more though
Love this song... Especially the dual guitar part at 2:35V 9 Comments
One of the very first metal bands I started with, and they still sound just as good as ever. It seems a lot of metal bands today that were once great have been releasing semi-good albums. (hypocrisy, dimmu borgir, soulfly, insomnium etc.)
In my opinion, this is one of the best bands out there and I am surprised Dark Tranquility is not much much higher on this list! I mean seriously! We are talking about the creators of death metal here!
This is my favorite song of all time, bar-none. I love ALL types of music and bands, it all depends on my mood. Lost to Apathy is the one song that it doesn't matter what "mood" I'm in, I LOVE it. Whether I'm working out, angry, working, need a song to put me to sleep, this song will always be great choice.
I think it's the best melodic death metal song after Lethe. If you like melodeath Dark Tranquillity must be top in your list.V 6 Comments
Norther are absolutely amazing... Their newest stuff is absolutely brilliant and they are definitely worth a lesson for anyone out there searching for a new band to listen to
Fantastic improvisation. This is called true melodic death metal. This is one song you can listen to all times. Fantastic stuff norther!
The best song ever of course
Spirit song.fels like in warV 10 Comments
Colony is B.M.D.M.S. E! Best. Melodic. Death. Metal. Song. EVER! I mean, WOW! Every single time, I hear my brother listening to this song. I ask him why is he listening to this, and he only says: BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST IN FLAMES SONG EVER! IT'S THE FATHER OF MELODIC DEATH METAL! I listened to it. My brother was right
My favourite song of the album. This deserves the top spot. Jotun should be number 1, though. Bar the metalcore, this is a nice list.
In flames are great new /old whatever they are the gods of melodic death metal... Crawl through knives}
This band is unique, special, different I don't exactly how to define it, but when I hear them, I can't stop.! IN FLAMES m/¡V 10 Comments
The only guy I know who can growl so hard that he's gonna spit his insides out..! GUYS and they sure know how to bang their heads...
Awesome song. I remember listening to this band while reading 'Eaters of the Dead' by Michael Crichton (really fit in with the story of Vikings.
I can listen to this song a million times!

Way better than Pursuit of the Vikings
One of their best song
Sadda rakkhaa Thor vij great ho hi Jai Thor maharaj ki balls balleV 3 Comments
Surely Arch Enemy should be in the top 10. This song is one of my very first MeloDeath metal songs and will forever be one of my favorites. It is the absolute EPITOME of an angry song. You want to give off some steam? Listen to this, man. You will not be disappointed.
just hear it, and you will be a different person - rock2metal
This is just an awesome song! This song is what got me into melodic death and just death metal. You will never get tired of listening to this song.
THE PERFECT SONGV 12 Comments
Amazing solo! and best COB chorus... Dis song is surely one of the best melodeath songs ever... COB RULZZZZ! - Slashhead
Children of Bodom (with no doubt) are the kings of melodeath! - rock2metal
I hadnt listened the first song but I have no doubt that this song is the g8est song in the history of both children of bodom and melodic death metal
Listen to this song it will change your lifeV 4 Comments
Best song from the gods of melodic death metal!
This hit is even greater than The Quiet Place and Alias. The power in the bass and the yearning melody and song is what defines melodic death metal.
What? I've heard most of these songs in this list, they are all good but only for the weak is legendary
This song should be no. 1 - GorphyxV 18 Comments
Kalmah deserve much more than what they are getting. Their music is persistent in quality. Over the years, from Swamplord to Seventh Swamphony, they have maintained there playing style. Enriched with break-taking riffs and meaning lyrics. THEY FAR BY DEFINE THE GENRE, THAN ANY BAND.
Awesome solo. Kalmah is the best.
Kalmah is the best band ever... Period...
Finally someone mentioned the heroes. Kalmah rules!V 7 Comments
That chorus makes me slip into other dimension and just listen to it and repeat it over and over till I fall asleep.
Eh, I don't think this should be so high up. It has a really cool intro, but then it just kinda goes downhill
Hands down the best song out
A very good song by AA.. Good Growling.. And great Composition.
As far as repeat listens go, it's pretty hard to rival Kalmah, in particular the first 2 albums and the last, 12 Gauge -Hook the Monster's solo-yikes! And let's not forget The Blind Leader's solo from TWR.
Kalmah is not ONE of the best melo death bands out there... It is THE best melo death band ever!
A song to remember, no doubt. This song is mdm for sure.
Hell yeah!V 1 Comment
This is one of COB's hidden gems. One of those songs you discover and it grows on you and you can't stop listening!
Piano Intro is Epic
Masterpiece. Akerfeldt has a Stimmung voice.
Eleven and an half minutes of pure eargasm.
Insomnium is great too but In Flames deserve to be the number 1
Into The Woods is 1 of their best song
Killswitch engage isn't even melodic death metal o.0
They are metalcore, not even close to o.0
COB are the kings of all melodic death metal as well as all the metals..!
Their songs are preferred by metal listeners as well as non listeniers... the songs they write and sing are the best songs and they drink and sink which makes them even better...!
DUDE THEY GUYS ROCK THE WORLD...!
Instead of in flames I think this song should be on top.
I think their best song isV 1 Comment
Why is this so low? This song is in a other league compared to most of the songs rated higher.
This is what I call melodic-death metal.
Kalmah are so much better than Bodom it's not fair
coolV 5 Comments
Surely should be among top melodic death metal songs of all time
It's a bit Lo-Fi, but the riffs are just plain cruel. Imminently listenable and enjoyable by even non-metal fans. Check out Cold, Blinded by Fear and the title track.
Hey, doesn't anyone notice this great song from one of the best melodic DM in the earth?
I still vote At The Gates to be the best melodic DM band. GO!
Its not melodic. - Ananya
Soilwork found the perfect balance of aggression and melody on this album. Heavy, experimental, and just damn excellent.
Class apart...! It is truly a master piece... One does not simply leave out INIS MONA... This song has everything excellent vocals, growling and to top it off, the use of bagpipes and flutes are extraordinary
One of the best songs ever. Amazing bagpiper and flute usage and awesome vocals!
Awesome Song.. I'm just keep listening this track! M/
Eluveitie is the bestttV 1 Comment
Best melodic death metal songs I ever heard. Very very underrated. Should be number one. Insomnium is the best metal band. Really cool songs
Why is it so below in the list? This song that enlightens a fire inside me every time I listen to it... why is it so underrated?V 2 Comments
Fantastic intro, awesome lyrics...
This song is just... wow
This song, triple corpes hammer blow, and laser cannon deth sentince (dethklok) are my faves.
When the song starts you know there's something specil.
Alexi - Awwesome
Scar Symmetry is an amazing band! This song is one of plenty of their best. Perhaps it's not higher because the genre is not 100% melo death metal?
This is a really good song! I'm surprised that this isn't higher on the list!
I think Carcass's Heartwork deserves to be in top ten songs because it's really amazing. - GREYBOYY
Carcass is a solid band for me.
It is the song that spawned melodeath period.
This is a Classic, it's a córner stone.V 1 Comment
This song is just amazing.. The leads give that same feeling as like when you listen to songs like dance of death.
I can't believe I had to add this song.. You all have lost your senses
The list is made up of worst songs I've ever heard
This song should be top ten! It would be if more people have heard it!
Not gonna lie, this song made me cryV 4 Comments
Killswitch Engage are not melodic death metal, they're metalcore. BIG difference.
I started listening to Killswitch Engage and Metalcore through this song... This will always be the special one.
Best song not melodic death metal but only metal...!
Not melo death but truely an awesome songV 2 Comments
Listen to it and you will be a CHANGED man! Amazing tuning and best of Sonic syndicate. vocals are outstanding. they are COOL and RULE. Chorus is AMA
I think Sonic Syndicate (in "Denied") and Kilswitch Engage are not melodic death metal, are metalcore - rock2metal
I think quo vadis silence calls the storm is one of best melodic death songs
One of d best ever of COB
Unbelievably underrated band, criminally underrated I would say. They are the highest amongst the top 3 melodic death metal bands of Dark Tr and Insomnium
God of melodeath...yeah sure
Pure melodic death metal Alexi voice was at its highest pitch ever in the songs. Also there is the fast double bass, a dual solo and a dark atmosphere. (Nearly melodic black metal)
I love the song! The Keyboard into with the guitar Riff is unbelieveble! That should be in the top ten for sure!
This is one of the top melodic death metal song for me!
Its truly amazing! It should be at top 10
Listen and vote metalheads!
By Astaroth Mort (Baphomet's Wrath)
For my opinion, this song is truly awesome!
I think that there are better songs in the album Reinkaos...
But this one is still good
Blacker than the blackest black times INFINITY
The intro is awesome.. My favorite MDM band ever.. :D
awesome.. the vocals are super ragious
Has a melodious solo which is quite impressive and catchy, this song should be in top tens!
The intro is Sooo melodious (laugh out loud)!
I would like to know why lost to apathy, the best metal song ever made, isn't even mentioned on this list.
One of the best melodeath songs... Push
Chorus and both solos make for an amazing, emotional song. Some of Insomnium's best
The song's too much underrated.It should get some respect...
