Soilwork - The Living Infinite (2013)
Good melodeath is rather hard to come by these days seeing as how many bands are doing it and so few really succeed. However, one of greats of the genre have returned to show everybody how it's done with what may be their best album yet. Whereas the previous few were inconsistent quality-wise, "The Living Infinite" contains no filler and all thriller. From the riffs to the melodies to the solos to the choruses, this double album is packed with catchy, heavy moments that really grab your attention. It's a very satisfying listen and shows that bands who are considered to be "past their prime" can surprise the music world and put out some of the best stuff of their whole career. Melodeath might not be entering a renaissance with this album, but Soilwork sure are.
