I definately agree 100% on this. Hence why i'm slightly confused why its even called "melodic death metal."

I would almost go to say its the opposite of brutal all together. Brutality as it relates to death metal appears often to be highly aggresive and grotesque in lyrics, vice Melo Death has expresionist lyrics that are generally abstract or melodic/"depressing" in nature and rely on "time tested" melodic progressions and generally overall "ear pleasing" riffs.
