Bands from Sweden seem to like to add a lot of melody to previously non-melodic styles. Of course there is the melodeath scene that I have been discussing all week, but there are also bands who play a melodic form of black metal from Sweden. Lord Belial is one of those bands. Heavily influenced by Dissection, but possessing their own style, Lord Belial's music is melodic but at the same time dark and evil sounding. They produce a cold atmosphere that is powerful and suffocating. They also have some damn good album covers.
