When Dark Tranquillity released "Skydancer", there pretty much wasn't anyone sounding quite like this at the time. Carcass were releasing "Heartwork", Carnage had done "Dark Recollections" in 1990, Dismember were an active project already, but surely this took the idea of inserting melody into Death Metal to a new level, even if Dark Tranquillity would only be glorified by it with "The Gallery". Then, Anders Fridén, was the lead vocalist, and Michael Stanne was on rhythmic guitar, and it's interesting to think they'd go on to become two of the main figures of the genre they helped create but in different bands, nowadays exploring different directions, sonically.
