41 Unsung - Insomnium V 1 Comment
42 Stabbing the Drama - Soilwork

awesome.. the vocals are super ragious

43 Hate Me - Children of Bodom

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)!

44 Monochromatic Stains - Dark Tranquillity

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

45 Lethe - Dark Tranquillity
46 We Will Rise - Arch Enemy V 1 Comment
47 Funeral Thirst - The Black Dahlia Murder
48 Bullet Ride - In Flames

The solo followed by an absolute killer of a bridge with that riff rounds out an amazing progression of a song.

49 Nothing to No One - Dark Tranquillity
50 While We Sleep - Insomnium

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...

51 Needled 24/7 - Children of Bodom
52 Jotun - In Flames

OH MY GOD! This song is severely underrated! This song includes one of the greatest riffs in metal history!

This song is this in the 50s? It's got such an incredible riff, the drum-work is punchy and aggressive and the lyrics are stellar (a body of black that carried now reflection). One of the masterpieces of Melodeath, close to the heart of the original movement of the genre. Should be up higher than trigger in my opinion.

53 Thunderhorse - Deathklok

The song only consists of 5 different words but is still more metal than your body has room for!

That riff kicks you right in the nuts. Literally. Just listen to it and bang your head

54 Death and the Healing - Wintersun

Jari really redefines what melodic death metal is, with clean and harsh vocals, yngwie sweeping aparggio solos, melodic riffs, clean riffs... Should be in the top 5

Way better than many other songs and bands on
This list...

55 Embody the Invisible - In Flames

The people on this site are all morons. Sometimes I could swear they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a car and an apple. Half the stuff here is metalcore.

56 War Eternal - Arch Enemy
57 A Fallen Star - Norther
58 The Smoke - Amorphis

Finnish metal is brutal and yet delicate with a great portion of wisdome and culture in the lyrics.

59 Debris - In Mourning V 1 Comment
60 What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse - The Black Dahlia Murder

This song is much better than a lot before it

Great single by TBDM. Lyrics are great. Nice, heavy verses with an awesome melodic breakdown. Fluid solo to complete the experience.

Why are there so many CoB songs on this list? They are okay... For hard rock maybe!
The Black Dahlia Murder is really melodic death metal!

Best MDM ever, probably one of the heaviest and most brutal songs you will hear!
