Thumbs up: +4
A beginner's guide to genuine blasting. Call it Gothenburg, call it extreme power - whatever, it's always enjoyable.

1. Children Of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll
2. Wintersun - Wintersun
Why? Fanboy-ism. Mental cinema. Supersonic journeys over snowy plains.
3. Kalmah - 12 Gauge
Splendid symbiosis of aggression and melody, epic hooks, the first three tracks blow away every other melodeath album.
4. Kalmah - Seventh Swamphony
Even better symbiosis of aggression and melody, more epic hooks, more blasting, and no fillers.
5. Blood Stain Child - Idolator
6. Norther - N
7. Dark Tranquillity - Damage Done
DT at their most melodic, and one of their most highly regarded albums.
8. In Flames - Clayman
9. Dark Age - Dark Age
10. Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper
The album that got me into melodeath, blending ingenious neoclassical melodies with technical madness without ever sound chaotic. On a second list though, Tägtgren put too much of his signature sound in the mix.
11. Soilwork - Natural Born Chaos
12. Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
Timeless classic.
13. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
Massive, atmospheric, slightly progressive. The follow-up is but a cheap copy of this one, whatever people say, there is only one "Countless Skies".
14. In Flames - Whoracle
15. Pain Confessor - Incarcerated
Breakthrough of a formerly unremarkable band, with a striking Insomnium influence, bashing even Insomnium itself.
16. Kalmah - Swampsong
17. Dark Tranquillity - We Are The Void
18. Dimension Zero - This Is Hell
19. Blood Stain Child - Mozaiq
20. Dissection - Reinkaos
21. Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
22. In Flames - Reroute To Remain
23. Norther - Death Unlimited
24. Amorphis - Elegy
25. Children Of Bodom - Hatebreeder
26. Scar Symmetry - Dark Matter Dimensions
27. Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
28. Norther - Mirror Of Madness
29. Dark Age - The Silent Republic
30. Arch Enemy - Doomsday Machine
31. Dimension Zero - This Is Hell
32. Dark Tranquillity - Fiction
33. Euphoreon - Euphoreon
34. Amaranthe - Amaranthe
