I honestly do not really like "melodic death metal" but I have a soft spot for Aephanemer. I encourage anyone who feels similar to give them a listen. Vocalist Marion Bascoul can hold her own with the best of them. I also like that this band is just pure music driven. There are no sexy gimmicks or cringworthy singing mixed with growling. In fact, I would say her vocals are far better than some of the more well known female vocalist in the genera. Prokopton, their new and fifth release, is an absolute crushing mix of melody, black metal, and prog rock. I can put this one and enjoy the hell out of it. Take a listen and follow the band on Facebook.
