Melodic death metal. That makes me think of Dissection. I know that it is debated whether Dissection is death or black metal but to me they will always be death metal. I know that some of you will start screaming about melodeath and melodic death metal being Dark Tranquillity and In Flames but the truth is that there are nuances even to this. In recent times I haven’t focused that much on death metal at all. With my mind set on finding the more obscure black metal releases I have lost touch a bit with death metal. So it is nice when an album like this comes my way. I gotta say that I like this speed melodic death metal that VELKHANOS perform, at least in the first proper song. If there ever was such a thing as power death metal then this would very close to that. This one works for me. A really cool one. Anders Ekdahl
