Melodic death metal (also referred to as melodeath) is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music that combines elements from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) with elements of death metal. The style originated and developed in Sweden during the early and mid-1990s (pioneered by bands At the Gates, Dissection, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames). The Swedish death metal scene did much to popularize the style, which soon centered in the "Gothenburg metal" scene in Gothenburg, Sweden. Among them, finnish Death Metal band Sentenced deserves mention as well through their 1993 album North from Here.
