Melodeath is not inherently metalcore, what a stupid fucking thing to say. What defines metalcore (the new melodic wave of it, at least), except for breakdowns is the hardcore punk drum beat. And probably the distinct kind of cheesy, uplifting guitar harmonies reminescent of post-hardcore, but absent in proper melodeath. On this album the drum beat can be heard in the main riff of "This Momentary Bliss", coupled with the same cheery guitar melodies, so yeah, I'd say this album does have some metalcore influences.

Tbh Melodeath was influential to the melodic metal core scene
albums like A Predator's Portrait utilizing clean vocals mixed with traditional screaming style set
Soilwork apart from other Swedish death metal bands.

No one is saying they are metalcore dumbo. For the most part they are a modern melodic death metal band. However they also have various other influences in their sound, metalcore being one of those influences.

Sonic Syndicate is much closer to metalcore, though. And much closer to shit, for that matter ^^

Notrap's soundoff: "Catchy piece of mainstream metalcore that should please all fans looking for a more melodic and predictable side of extreme music."

So what because one person wrongly labels it metalcore that makes it metalcore does it? I dont think so... And more importantly i was talking about people in the discussion. The person you mention was not present when we were having the discussion. Nice try at being a dick though.
