I grew up on the swedish melodic death/groove metal scene. With bands like In Flames, Disarmonia Mundi, Scar Symmetry and all those bands that followed in their wake.

And while I dig it, a lot of it tends to be more groove-sentric and heavily reliant on low-string chuggage.
So I'm looking for something that has more focus on melodic leads in the mid- to high range.
It doesn't necessarily has to be that type of Metal, although it would be preferred. I know there's more to be found in NWOBHM and old school Heavy Metal in general, but that's generally not really my thing.

Bonus points for staccato riffing.

Some examples:

Dreamshade -- Late Confessions (3:10 and onwards)

I share your music tastes, and I believe you have recommended to me before. It would be a pleasure to help.

Hope you don't mind some power metal-ISH stuff :P this is my FAVORITE melodeath band that uses high riffs.

Crimson Shadow was pretty awesome. At first I wasn't quite sure what to think of it, but I quickly warmed up to it. Sweet stuff, thanks. :)
Kinda like a more upbeat, lead heavy version of Destroy Destroy Destroy, which is nice.
Also kinda reminds me of Xanthochroid's spoof band, Epic Dragon. :P

Bury Tomorrow was pretty decent, though it didn't particularly grab me at first listen. I'll give em a few more spins, though.

Thanks for the recs, dude. Really appreciate it. :)
