Wasn't entirely sure if I could ask for melodeath recommendations in the Death Metal thread, so asking here.

Anyway, my knowledge of Melodic Death Metal is fairly limited, so I would like some recommendations as to some that may fit my taste. I'm a big fan of bands like Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, Gormathon, Wintersun and Dethklok. The general qualities I love in these are the catchy riffs, the vocals that really project themselves and feel very powerful, as well as them being clear enough to understand what they are saying.

I'm also a fan of bands that crossover Melodic Death Metal with other subgenres, particularly Power and Folk Metal. Perfect examples of this would be Children of Bodom, Amaranthe, Whispered and Eluveitie. Does anyone know any good bands like these? Thanks in advance :).

That's exactly the purpose of the help threads. To help such simple requests. There's also the folk/viking/pagan help thread, use them.
