Within Y  

Within Y is another band from the mecca of melodic death metal that is Gothenburg, Sweden. And sure enough, melodic death metal is what's on offer on the band's debut, Extended Mental Dimension, but they aren't necessarily cloning any of the multitudes of other bands in this genre. The tempo and tone is a bit harsher, the riffs slightly more thrashy, and vocalist Andreas Solveström's throaty monotonic style steers the band toward metalcore territory (granted, metalcore and melodic death seem almost interchangeable these days, with many bands borrowing from both genres). These guys may need another album or two to establish their own identity, but EMD is a solid debut and recommended for the style.
