No way in hell. It's overhyped as fuck.

With so many clone bands nowadays like BDM, The Absence(sorry ih27frets!), etc. and a billion fucking metalcore bands that ripped off the Gothenburg sound, there's nothing new in the scene, it's just a pool of bands ripping each other off. So how does a ripoff of a ripoff done a million times sound? Pretty boring to me.

Btw, Wintersun are viking/melodic speed, there are no elements of death metal in their music.

So, I guess the melodic death metal tag is a falsehood since all the bands that have ever been categorized as such have nothing to do with Suffocation or Morbid Angel, or any bands like those. I agree, that these bands really aren't DM, I have just conformed to the genre label I guess. Sad ain't it? Honestly, it's probably the worst genre tag in metal's history as all these bands (Soilwork, Dark Tranquility, In Flames etc.) have much more to do with thrash, and basically nothing to do with Death Metal. If there was a best band ever that's been classified as melodic death, I'd say it's Dissection, but really weren't they more blackened thrash anyway?

Dt and inflames are melodic death metal and not trash also
for the use of growling in vocals and because their songs deal with ( for blood red bass : yes I know this verb) death and other tipical death metal tematics.

Yeah early In Flames and DT is genuine DM. Like Lunar Strain and shit, that's pretty DM just more melodic, it even reminds me of Cynic and Atheist at times. But then both just sort of went different ways, IF went mallcore after Colony/Clayman and DT are just more of an industrial extreme band, not really DM anymore. But most Gothenburg bands have more traditional metal influence(ie: Ozzy, Maiden, Priest) than anything else, so I feel "death metal" is inappropriate in most cases for these bands. But hey, there is no definite sound for death metal either, Morbid sounds nothing like Obituary nor do they sound like Cynic or Severed Savior or Psycroptic. I think DM is very varied, it's not just Cannibal Corpse nowadays, while mdm is just too narrow, only 1 kind of sound that doesn't expand...

The only Swedish style melo death bands that are really death metal bands are those that took after Dismember and Entombed, which aren't many really(ie: Amon Amarth... can't think of any more!).

Earlier AtG is definately real melo death but then they sort of abandoned that and started playing more commercial groove/extreme metal(like The Haunted) before they split up.

EDIT: By the way, calling bands like Children of Bodom, Norther, Ensiferum and similar Finnish bands death metal is also very off. They're just modern speed/power with extreme vocals, with the exception of Ensiferum and Wintersun which have modern viking metal influence(like all the Oooooh singing ), I don't see any death metal at all in there. Cool bands though, especially Ensiferum and Wintersun.
