Best Melodic Death Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Slaughter of the Soul - At the Gates

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!

22 Gravitational Lensing - Solution .45
23 The World is Yours - Arch Enemy
24 Misery's Crown - Dark Tranquillity
25 Lack of Comprehension - Death

Its not melodic. - Ananya

26 War Eternal - Arch Enemy
27 Line of Least Resistance - Sybreed
28 Natural Born Chaos - Soilwork

Soilwork found the perfect balance of aggression and melody on this album. Heavy, experimental, and just damn excellent.

29 Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags - Amon Amarth
30 Inis Mona - Eluveitie

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 besttt

31 Weather the Storm - Insomnium

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?

32 Angels Don't Kill - Children of Bodom

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

33 Morphogenesis - Scar Symmetry

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!

34 My Apocalypse - Arch Enemy
35 Heartwork - Carcass

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.

36 Countless Skies - Be'lakor

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 cry

38 Denied - Sonic Syndicate

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

39 In Your Face - Children of Bodom

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

40 Death in Fire - Amon Amarth

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
