The Duskfall  

Formed in 1999 initially as a side project, The Duskfall embodies Swedish melodic death metal as well as any band, releasing five well-executed, if not generic, albums over the course of their career. The melodic death scene has been saturated for a few years now (even more so with the increasing number of American metalcore bands borrowing Swedish melodic death riffs), and it is has been increasingly hard for bands like this to really make a name for themselves in such a crowded field. Having said that, those who can't get enough melodic death will want to check out The Duskfall, as they did perform well within the confines of the genre. They broke up in August 2008 following the departure of founding member Mikael Sandorf, and then years later Sandorf himself recruited an all-new lineup and kept the name going.
