Fun trivia: Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity's vocalist) was In Flames' vocalist on their demo and debut album. Anders Fridén (In Flames' vocalist) was Dark Tranquillity's vocalist from 1991 to 1993. They basically switched places, hehe!


I should do that. I tend to like the early classic stuff I've heard....Slaughter of the Soul, The first couple of Haunted albums (I know they were considered thrash...but I really like  Made Me do It), Entombed and The Gallery Through Damage Done/Character. When, fiction came out, I kind of got bored of the genre-but still like the earlier stuff when I'm in the mood.

 

Oh, and I've got a soft spot for cheesy Viking Amon Amarth kind of stuff.

You should love Whoracle and Colony by In Flames. I have Gardens Of Grief and Slaughter Of The Soul by At The Gates and The Dead Eye by The Haunted, but haven't heard much else by those two bands. Make sure you hear Nightrage, especially the first two albums, since Tomas Lindberg is on vocals. Additionally, Tom Englund (Evergrey) and Mikael Stanne do guest vocals on a few Nightrage songs. Character is my favorite DT album. Amon Amarth is cool, but I can't think of any other Viking-themed melodic death metal bands.

 

Hope you read my edits: The Black Waltz by Kalmah is a good melodeath album with a Viking feel to it.

Pale communion is the first album by Opeth to mostly self plagiarise and lack any convincing new ideas.  Best way I can put it anyway.  Also WTH is with that song where they use strings sampling... like RNB or something...

 

But the 24/96 release will probably get the album a little more head-time than it deserves so maybe some songs will grow on me.
