The title says it all. I'm looking for melodic metal with a lot of blasting and melodic riffs. It can be power, melodeath or black as long as its somewhat upbeat.

Well, that's not uncommon at all. Many people go on 4chan in order to get off.

Sacramentum - Far Away From The Sun

I'm also looking for similar albums.

Not a metal band but a real crazy japanese thrashy hardcore band that is quite melodic and upbeat (at full speed of course).

Spite Extreme Wing's Magnificat compilation is an endless stream of blistering fast uplifting melodies, i really suggest it! :)

Mors Principium Est is what you need:

Also, Destinity.. on the more brutal side of melodic, but still plenty of tuneful goodness:

i don't mind female vocals but for this request MPE don't fit the bill. Desitinity is damn catchy and it's closer to what i want but still not quite what i'm looking for. my two examples above are exactly what i want, especially the type of blasting being used; intense, and almost bouncy sounding if that makes sense. the guitars are soaring and melodic, almost epic. the drums should be relentless and breakneck but not necessarily technical. vocals can have some slack, i'm not particular. but female vox wouldn't makes sense for what i'm looking for.

The female vocals are only on the first track on The Unborn and maybe one other track, IIRC. They're not a regular feature at all, and neither is the electronica.. Then again I didn't listen to those tracks you posted because I can't actually listen to anything on this computer (it's a work computer with one tiny speaker that basically converts metal into static) so yeah, I'm flying blind here :P


Anyway, with that in mind there's also Decrepit Birth, pretty much the epitome of melodic blasting:

First fragment seems to fit what you need. Aggressive neo-classical melodic technical death metal.

In my opinion there is a MASSIVE lack of melodic death metal with blast beats and high tempos, however this album is by far the most blast filled and probably fastest melodic death metal ever recorded
Youtube: show


There are a handful of Black Dahlia Murder songs like this, but not enough
Youtube: show


Allegaeon, a little hit or miss but they have some good songs
Youtube: show


Classic lesser known French death metal
Youtube: show


Probably the best classic Swedish mdm, mostly skank beats but good tempos and few blasts throughout this album
Youtube: show


Kalmah

Inferi might be what you're after:
High tempo, technical, melodic death with plenty of blasts and tasty riffs.

I think you will enjoy Day into Night from Quo Vadis, lots of blasting while maintaining the melody.
