A lot of extreme metal is obsessed with being heavier, lower, more detuned than the next guy. But there are a few bands that say, "No, let's go in the other direction," and write songs in a higher register. And I like that.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about - Radiophobia, by Cytotoxin:

In the playthrough/studio video, you can see that the refrain melody (0:40) is played way up in the high 1Xth frets.

Mental Corruption by Henker is another example of what I mean:
Youtube: show

To give you a bit more to go on, the break (1:40) from Dying Fetus's Your Treachery Will Die With You is almost an example of what I'm talking about, except for it not really being the song's refrain/melody, instead more of a full-band guitar solo.

Can anyone help me find more music like this? Let's get a good thread going.

Pretty obvious, but what about Necrophagist?

Gonna go in a slightly different direction and post some black metal:

Grand Mood - Final Urge to March (the best example of this is the title track, which doesn't have a sample posted online, but if you're feeling piraty it shouldn't be too hard to find)

Botanist (not wholly metal, but close enough at times to be worth mentioning):
