And i would most definately disagree saying that melo death has the tiniest bit of the "intensity" of death metal. For one you'll have a hard time finding blast beats except in small locations maybe, depending on a select few bands, where as its very common in death metal. Hell not to mention lets just talk BPM. I would gather to say most Dark Tranquillities bpms are probably in the 170-185 range.

When I say intensity, I mean that in-your-face, take-it-as-it-is feeling and energy that most brutal death metal has. Combine that with the harmony and serenity of melodic metal and BAM, you've got melodic death metal.

I don't need blast beats being played at 260 bpm for music to be intense. Agoraphobic Nosebleed is like that and I don't get that same feeing of intensity (Ahtough it is there); it's just regular grindcore I sometimes need to take the edge off.

Just put in some Dark Tranquillity, Amon Amarth, or Death (I know they aren't classified as melo death, but I believe them to have some melodic overtones, and they're awesome), and I'm in heaven.

Keep checking for new crap.
