So normally I like my metal as simplistic and raw as possible, but there is something about Arghoslent's melodic RIFF attacks that I just love. Of course, it has made me wonder if, horror of horrors, maybe I just like melodeath??

Anyway, any other good bands in the Arghoslent style? I'm fine with stuff like Dissection, Dawn, At the Gates etc (not that they are the same), but none of it really wows me like Arghoslent. I do enjoy House of Atreus (and GBK of course), just wondering what else is out there that sounds like Arghoslent without sounding too much like Heartwork (which, while it's not a "bad" album, it's just not something I'm into).

Well if this is the case then I can rest easy about unknowingly being a melodeath fan...

That Svolder was pretty good...I felt like the couldn't quite sustain a full length, but lots of great GBK worship moments anyway.

You ever check out Thou Art Lord's latest album that NWN! put out a few years ago? I bet you'll dig it. Then again I've always thought that Arghoslent sounds like an Americanized Hellenic black metal band. So I think of bands like Thou Art Lord and Rotting Christ before I think of At The Gates or Dissection. But I can see that side of their sound, too.

Edit: Here's the link for The Regal Pulse of Lucifer:

I've gotten Arghoslent vibes from Sacriphyx.

https://nuclearwarnowproductions.bandcamp.com/album/the-western-front

but still... even if a band kinda sounds like Arghoslent, it's a tall order matching those riffs.

Huh, I never explicitly put the Greek connection together before (Varathron/Necromantia split was one of my first bm albums back in the 90s, and I've been heavy into the scene ever since), but yeah, that does make sense...maybe that's what makes me like Arghoslent so much, they temper their melodic stuff with classic heavy metal sensibilities just like the Greeks.

A band, or a description of finding something that matches Arghoslent? Wink

I will back the Sacriphyx mention in this thread, killer band and The Western Front has many tasty melodic riffs.

Though critics of the band will tell you they sound like a slightly more aggressive version of any 80s US power metal band, I've come to find that no bands really sound like Arghoslent. I'll be checking this thread though, because I'm a fan.
