No I'd say Sweden is a close #2 nowadays when it comes to putting out over-polished crap metal, with stuff like Hammerfall, In Flames, Soilwork and Sonic Syndicate as the most awful ones. However, Finland in my opinion is even worse in this regard, with bands such as Stratovarious, Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica, Korpiklaani, Finntroll etc.
The best Finnish metal I rank among the tops of metal as a whole though (amazing in the early 90s, and for example some bands like Hooded Menace and Reverend Bizarre nowadays), it's just that I often have to wade through so much awful stuff to get to it .
