Yes, more than you know; but that's because I'm a collector. but that's beside the point.
Yes, beside the point, like a branch is beside a tree.
Who to you is the best live band(s)?
There's a few....
Melodic death metal wise, Dimmu Borgir.
Also, not even a Melodeath band (from what I remember), Symphonic Black Metal actually.
Some of their music is considered Melodic Death metal.
By people that have probably never heard Heartwork, Storm Of The Light's Bane or The Red In The Sky Is Ours.
Psure at least 2 of those albums are by At the Gates, not In Flames, and psure they are all Death Metal albums, and psure that In Flames was Melodic DM earlier in their career and then changed into nu-metal like ATG did.
