Do Wintersun count as Melodeath?

If not then probably, off the top of my head, Amon Amarth.

Melodeath is just a shortened way of saying melodic death metal. God damn it's really not that hard

melodeath is a stupid term because 99% of the time it sounds nothing like death metal.

Melodeath


Melodic death metal


Seriously melodeath should just be called something else.

Just listen to the riffing style. One clearly sounds more like death metal, while the other usually borrows from power metal and trad metal.

I agree there's differences, but there are a lot of straight up death metal bands that sound different too. Cannibal Corpse sounds very different from Death, yet they're the same genre. The bands don't have to sound exactly the same to be in the same genre

Bad example there Axe, because both early CC and death have the thrashy Florida sound <_____<

But I know what you mean, but I was talking about the overall riffing and structure.

Pretty sure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_SQq5qCFnA has more in common with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro2vCRwv6yc than they do with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogu8AbvKsKU

Lol of course CC and Death have similarities, but they sound quite different to me. I guess it wasn't the best example...

I think that's just a question of whether you call it death metal or not, not whether melodeath = melodic death metal, because by definition they are the same thing. I think melodeath does have more in common with power metal than death metal, but it's just what people decide to call it. I think it should be called extreme power metal, or something along those lines. Melodeath works fine too, though

I personally think of melodeath and death metal completely differently. I like melodeath a lot, but I only like a select few amazing death metal bands

I agree with that completely minus the last part, and really that was all I was arguing.

I know what it is, it's just that Wintersun could be called so many things. They're like progessive power folk melodeath.

Wintersun don't even exist: they're just a figment of Axe's imagination. Time is a cunningly ironic title divised by his subconsious, as its never going to be released.

Not sure I got that. I'm guessing it has something to do with Wintersun's Time album.
