Best Of Melodic Death Metal

These are the finest examples of Melodic Death Metal imo. What makes a geat melodeath song? Either the song's ability to sway the listener, fine melodies that are pleasing to the ear. Or eargasmic riffs with an up-tempo beat that makes you want to enter the mosh-pit straight away while not being too basic or predictable as in other genres such as thrash or death. Or the holy combination of both of these. These are the things I paid attention to while picking out the songs. While most of these songs have the combination factor, some songs, while not having that much of a swaying melody, are just too moshtastic that they simply cannot be overseen. Or the opposite, while not being as moshy, just have too beautiful a melody to oversee.
I hope you, the reader, can relate too my choices.

1. Insomnium - Above the Weeping World
2. Be'lakor - The Frail Tide
3. Noumena - Death Walks with Me

Supermassive List: Top 20 Picks of Each Year of the Last Decade (2000-2009)

This is not a typical "Best of the decade" list. To be more precise, it's a list about the top 20 albums of each year of the last decade (the ones in MS), in my perspective of course. In this way, a lot of good albeit overlooked albums can get some exposure, in addition to covering more ground at the same time.

1. 2009
2. Sybreed - The Pulse Of Awakening
3. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
4. Porcupine Tree - The Incident

Top 20 albums of 2003

I'll probably never get a thumb up for this list as there are a lot of controversial albums on it. 2003 is on the other hand maybe the best metal year so far in my opinion. It was here I really started listening to metal and nothing else. The top 4 has had a huge impact on me as a metalhead.

1. Cradle Of Filth - Damnation And A Day
2. Children Of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll
3. Norther - Mirror Of Madness
4. Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death
5. Illnath - Cast Into Fields Of Evil Pleasure
