Definitely checks out. Insomnium - In the Halls of Awaiting, Kalmah - Swampsong, Amon Amarth - Jomsviking, Amorphis - Tales from the Thousand Lakes, Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows, Enshine - Singularity, Norther - Dreams of Endless War... Just to name a few 😂
Shylmagoghnar - Transience. This is rather fun
Ensiferum - From Afar
Singularity is amazing
My mind was blown when I first found it
I just stumbled upon them randomly one day lol
Dreamtide and Dual Existence are amazing tracks
10/10. Also, random finds are the best!
They honestly are. That's how I've found many of my favorite bands and also the gateway for me into mdm and other genres of metal. Stumbling into Atoma one day and now I'm here lol
After you stumble into MDM it's never the same lol
Definitely don't regret it at all
Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
Also Mirror of Madness by Norther
Death unlimited by norther is also kinda blueish and kicks ass!
Fuck me, New World Shadows. I had forgotten that masterpiece, been years since I listened to it. Thanks for naming it, going to have a good day putting it on repeat now.
In Flames - Subterranean is insanely underrated
I think it checks out.
Nocturnal - The Black Dahlia Murder is blue also and absolutely slaps.
Storm of the lights babe as well
Great typo, great album
That's right, honey
Same with in the night side eclipse
Came to say this
Same artist as Sacramentum's Far Away From The Sun too. Dude really loves his blue castles
Surprised it wasn’t on here, thought for sure I’d see it there
Dan Swanö Moontower is kinda blue
Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe fits the bill.
I was very surprised to see it wasn’t part of the post. I could have guaranteed it would
That one’s green. Did you mean Neohumanity?
It's blue enough
I've always looked at the cover art as blue, but I guess you are right with it being borderline greenish blue.
Also wanted to add:
Edguy - Mandrake (power metal)
Not a death metal band but the album is filled with beautiful melodies (plus it's blue hehe)
New Soilwork album
It also goes for non death metal, ride the lightning, rust in peace, Voulez-Vous, who made who, nightmare, even the weezer blue album
Mors Principium Est - The Unborn and Deadsong by Before the Dawn (although I suspect this last one to be purple, one can never rest easy with colourblindness, lol)
In Vain, Aenigma
Fleshgod Apocalypse, Agony
Dawn of Ouroboros, The Art of Morphology
Dark Tranquillity, Atoma
Stormkeep - Tales of Othertime
Shylmagoghnar - Transience further confirms the theory
you forgot Darkane - Rusted Angel
Panopticon - Isis (the band not the Islamic state pls NSA dont monitor me bro)
Oh I thought you meant the solo album by the pornstar Isis
Sacramentum - far away from the sun one of the greatest albums EVER
Cannot believe how far I had to scroll to see this one
Nightfall in Middle Earth, if we go beyond melodeath
Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle Earth
Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica
Nightwish - Once (It's mostly silver but close enough)
Skyclad - The Wayward Sons of Mother Earth
Amon Amarth - Jomsviking
Theocracy - Mirror of Souls
Checks out. Goes beyond Melodic Death Metal too
What about Oceanborn?
Haven't really listened to it enough. This is a good reminder to do so
Norther - Mirror of Madness. As well
Think you’re onto something!
The unborn also checks out
idk if anybody here is into Jazz but Kind of Blue is like, THE cool jazz album so i guess it crosses genres?
Left hand path
I'd like to add The Somberlain and Storm of The Lights Bane to the conversation. Not Death Metal obviously but Black Metal and very melodic so I think they fit. Absolute GOAT albums.
Ride The Lightning, Rust in Peace and Somewhere Far Beyond check in
I actually came up with the same theory like a year ago, so cool to see someone likeminded!!! Doesn’t only apply to melodeath, but there’s also Sleep Token - This Place Will Become Your Tomb; Behemoth - The Apostasy, Thelema 6; Unto Others - Mana; Edge Of Sanity - The Spectral Sorrows; Rammstein - Rosenrot; Megadeth - Rust In Peace; Metallica - Ride The Lightning; Alcest - Spiritual Instinct; Iron Maiden - Brave New World; Spiritbox - Eternal Blue
There’s definitely more but these I could think of instantly
Also applies to live albums - Katatonia - Dead Air and Sanctitude
Baroness’ “Blue Record” is top-tier.
Nightshade - Wielding the scythe, In Mourning - The Weight Of Oceans(actually it’s blue-green tho), and when it comes to non melodeath Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse, Immortal - At The Heart Of Winter and Sacramentum - Far Away from the Sun should be here!
> In Mourning
I came to mention that one :) I think it's blue.
>Nightshade - Wielding The Scythe
This was the first melodeath album I ever heard and is still one of my favorites. It's also a nice introduction into the genre for people who don't usually listen to it ime.
The two blue Saor albums are my favorite
the weight of oceans - In Mourning
Red albums too, like: Colony, Still Life, The Redshift, The Gallery, etc...
The Absence - From Your Grave
Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
I made an album art wall I while ago and I also noticed that like every album was blue . I decided to give up on the color coordination.
True Weezer is great
Nevermore - Dead Heart in a Dead World - Not melodic death metal but absolutely legendary so your Blue Law appears to hold true beyond the boundary of MDM.
Here are more :
* Blind Guardian - Nightfgall in Middle Earth
* Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
* Fear Factory - Demanufacture
* Norther - Death Unlimited
* Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse
* Sepultura - Chaos A.D.
Plus Edge of sanity have TWO blue albums
You also got heavy meta- nekrogoblikon, the dethalbum- dethklok, ocean machine- devin townsend, écailles de lune- alcest, scumdogs 9f the universe- gwar, leviathan- mastodon. The new rivers of nihil is blue too! Not all melodeath but all great albums
In my opinion, albums that have landscapes with some scary elements in them are the best. Example: Lorna Shore- Immortal, Mental Cruelty- A Hill To Die Upon, Shadow of Intent- Melancholy and Elegy.
Don't forget weezers blue album the best of all the blue
Oceanborn - Nightwish
