Dissection was one of the first black metal bands I was able to get into, due to their melody and clean production on Storm of the Light's Bane. I've always liked melodic metal. I was always into traditional metal since I was about 5 years old. My father was into metal and I grew up with the likes of Judas Priest, UFO, Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc. So, I was very into traditional metal for a while and couldn't really get into death/black metal until later on in life. One of the first bands that I got into was Hypocrisy, and then albums like Dark Tranquility's Damage Doneand Intestine Baalism Banquet in the Darkness came into my life and I started to like the more extreme styles of metal with melody. Then, of course, Storm of the Light's Bane came into my life and I LOVED it. It has a sort of special meaning for me, as it was one of the first albums that really got me to "understand" harsher music.

So, seeing as I have a taste for harsh yet melodic metal, can anyone recommend me some albums that are similar to Storm of the Light's Bane? I have been recommended Windir, and I have listened to 1184, but I could not get into it. Maybe I didn't listen to the right album? I've listened to The Somberlain by Dissection and I like it, but it's not as good as SOTLB in my opinion. I really like the production on SOTLB.

Sacramentum - Far Away from the Sun
Blaze of Perdition - Necrosophist
Dark Ages - Their guitarist has some history with Jon, auditioning/ jamming & stuff. They've only have a couple of demos & an EP so far.
Perhaps some Thulcandra & Watain if that's not too obvious.

not sure i'd call these all that similar, but some of the more or less melodically inclined bm i like, off the top of my head (most of these might be way too obvious):

old man's child - pagan prosperity... one of the first black metal albums i really got into - likely largely because of the heavy... melodicity? melodicality? (what's the actual word for that?)
rotting christ - first four albums are my favourites - i think triarchy... would be closest to what you're looking for - late era is more chanty
naglfar - vittra
thou art lord - the regal pulse of lucifer
satyricon - nemesis divina

The obvious recommendation is Unanimated the biggest influence on Dissection. They even stole a riff or 2 from them.
The wider swedish melodic black/death scene fits into this as well with stuff ranging from Lunar Strain by In Flames to Sacramentum.

The Sacramentum album is EXACTLY what I was looking for! It sounds great, I previewed it on Youtube, can't wait to really give it a listen! Still have to check out the other stuff.

Thanks everyone for the recs!

Dawn - Slaughtersun

In the same vein as Storm, only better.

If you haven't listened to them yet I think Vinterland's Welcome My Last Chapter and Hyperion's Seraphical Euphony might be worth a try.

Thulcandra is toal Dissection worship. Their albums don't vary greatly, but "Under a Frozen Sun" is probably my favorite by a hair.

Everdying might be one to look into. While it's not pure Dissection worship, it crosses a lot of the same T's and dots the same I's.

Funny, my story is almost identical to yours. For years and years i could only listen to traditional heavy metal.
Although from there it was bands like Be'lakor and Amon Amarth that kinda introduced me to harsher vocals.
I never quite gotten in to Black Metal because of the bad production, Dissection was the first black metal band i could listen to aswell but i still prefered Reinkaos.

I guess you've heard Ensiferum, Eluveite, Wintersun etc?

Bands a lil' closer to the genre you're looking for would be Aether Realm and Demonaz

Hope you'll like it :))

I still haven't heard Tarot yet but idk if Aether Realm is really gonna do it as far as Dissection vibes go... BUT, Jake did play bass for a cool meloblack band called Oubliette. They even covered Thorns of Crimson Death!

Kvist, they only did one album I believe, slightly less polished production wise, but very much in the same style.
