Staff review by
Do you think Melodic Death Metal died? You couldn't be more wrong, Canopy offers one of the best Melodious attacks this year, "Serene Catharsis" marks the rebirth of a crumbled scene. A genre that lately saw its limbs turned into pansy fudge now becomes stronger than ever with this Canadian band.

I'm not calling Canopy an "innovative" band, and I'm surely not saying these guys are better than Entombed, Dismember, The Chasm or any of the genre pioneers, I'm argumenting that they are reforming the genre, that they CAN be as good as their forefathers were if they only want to. Forget about In Flames or Arch Enemy they are posers, don't even mention Bleeding Through or Chimaira they don't fit in here, you just need to remember one name from now on, that is Canopy.
