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 😂


dilatoryy

Shylmagoghnar - Transience. This is rather fun


UnholyDemigod

Ensiferum - From Afar


AssDeepInZubats

Singularity is amazing


dilatoryy

My mind was blown when I first found it


AssDeepInZubats

I just stumbled upon them randomly one day lol Dreamtide and Dual Existence are amazing tracks


dilatoryy

10/10. Also, random finds are the best!


AssDeepInZubats

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


dilatoryy

After you stumble into MDM it's never the same lol


AssDeepInZubats

Definitely don't regret it at all


Deethreekay

Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel


LatimerLeads

Also Mirror of Madness by Norther


baloothedog1

Death unlimited by norther is also kinda blueish and kicks ass!


jonpacker

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.


theStaberinde

In Flames - Subterranean is insanely underrated


Jipley0

I think it checks out. Nocturnal - The Black Dahlia Murder is blue also and absolutely slaps.


seztomabel

Storm of the lights babe as well


SnappDawwg

Great typo, great album


Tremaparagon

That's right, honey


tacobell69421

Same with in the night side eclipse


tramsey2663

Came to say this


DannyFuckingCarey

Same artist as Sacramentum's Far Away From The Sun too. Dude really loves his blue castles


-AestheticsOfHate-

Surprised it wasn’t on here, thought for sure I’d see it there


csusterich666

Dan Swanö Moontower is kinda blue


Nexion218

Dissection 😎


westvann

Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe fits the bill.


slumber72

I was very surprised to see it wasn’t part of the post. I could have guaranteed it would


Saint_Bo_Dallas

That one’s green. Did you mean Neohumanity?


Nephilimn

It's blue enough


westvann

I've always looked at the cover art as blue, but I guess you are right with it being borderline greenish blue.


Disukyubi

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)


gristlelicker81

New Soilwork album


stay-frosty-67

It also goes for non death metal, ride the lightning, rust in peace, Voulez-Vous, who made who, nightmare, even the weezer blue album


ToastyCaribiu84

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)


Tremaparagon

Aephanemer, Prokopton In Vain, Aenigma Fleshgod Apocalypse, Agony Dawn of Ouroboros, The Art of Morphology Dark Tranquillity, Atoma Eluveitie, Ategnatos UADA, Djinn


MOSh_EISLEY

Stormkeep - Tales of Othertime


Darkbornedragon

Shylmagoghnar - Transience further confirms the theory


Faithless_00

you forgot Darkane - Rusted Angel


RearHandStrike

Panopticon - Isis (the band not the Islamic state pls NSA dont monitor me bro)


Tremaparagon

Oh I thought you meant the solo album by the pornstar Isis


srennen

Sacramentum - far away from the sun one of the greatest albums EVER


DannyFuckingCarey

Cannot believe how far I had to scroll to see this one


thegallus

Nightfall in Middle Earth, if we go beyond melodeath


Geldeeran

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


LateChapter7

What about Oceanborn?


Geldeeran

Haven't really listened to it enough. This is a good reminder to do so


kyosheru

Norther - Mirror of Madness. As well Think you’re onto something!


ILikePointyGuitars

DT Atoma


RU_Student

The unborn also checks out


hitokirizac

idk if anybody here is into Jazz but Kind of Blue is like, THE cool jazz album so i guess it crosses genres?


Chump___

Left hand path


Educational-Bowl2737

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.


Sonseeahrai

Ride The Lightning, Rust in Peace and Somewhere Far Beyond check in


angeleyesMia

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


angeleyesMia

Also applies to live albums - Katatonia - Dead Air and Sanctitude


ChickenInASuit

Baroness’ “Blue Record” is top-tier.


traoceanoecielo

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!


Fenris78

> In Mourning I came to mention that one :) I think it's blue.


TheWeedBlazer

>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.


throw__away3_

The two blue Saor albums are my favorite


Grouchy-Jackfruit692

the weight of oceans - In Mourning


Some_Soft_7257

weezer


MangKanorLord

Red albums too, like: Colony, Still Life, The Redshift, The Gallery, etc...


Adventurous_Pop7057

The Absence - From Your Grave


Nephilimn

Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe


Fantastic-Medicine51

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.


AustinJepsen

True Weezer is great


Whadyawant

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.


trollivier

I concurr. 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.


cd-Ezlo

Plus Edge of sanity have TWO blue albums


jesterflesh

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


S1mulatedSahd0w

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.


opmplayer

Don't forget weezers blue album the best of all the blue


LateChapter7

Oceanborn - Nightwish
