How about we all headbang to some old-school Swedish Death Metal. Not the Jotenbourg crap, the real stuff.

Sorry Swedish people, but I am so disappointed by your metal bands compared to Finland (produces the best bands IMO) and Germany.

STRONGLY disagree:

Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, In FLames, At the Gates, Amon Amarth, Meshuggah, Bathory, Hammerfall, Therion, Candlemass, Katatonia, Bloodbath, Entombed, Nihilist, etc, etc, etc......

Not even close despite Finland producing some very great bands as well.

Finland probably has the best death metal overall, but Sweden has a larger amount of quality bands (and TRITSIO to their name)

Finland is OK at BM with a few REALLY good bands and some solid doom, but holy crap are they bad in just about every other facet of metal

It really depends what type of metal you're talking about. Sweden blows Germany out of the water in regards to Death Metal.

I was talking in more of powerhouse countries, becuase Sweden also blows countries like America out of the water as well.

You won't like this one bit,

Opeth: tries way too hard to be good and destroys their songs.
Dark Tran.: Pretty good band, but not great.
In Flames: Meh
At the Gates: Never heard of them.
Amon Amarth: Hate them, very overrated.
Meshuggah: Above-average band.
Hammerfall: They only have a couple of good songs.
Therion: Fantastic band, both in death and symphonic.
Bloodbath: Hate them.

I am very particular in Death Metal bands I like because I dislike any growling like Nile. Plus I am in viking, pagan, and folk scene.

Ensiferum
Wintersun
Sonata Arctica
Moonsorrow
Korpiklaani
Stratovarius (Earlier albums)
Swallow The Sun
Norther
Battlelore
Falchion
Turisas
Catamenia

Amazing bands.

Only ones I can think of I absolutely hate,

Children Of Bodom (Meh)
Nightwish (very mainstream-ish sound, ewwww)
Amorphis (Songs are too simple and mainsteam-ish)
Finntroll (Worst folk metal band, bar none)


Germany
Blind Guardian
Helloween
Gamma Ray
Edguy
Equilibrium
Haggard (Best band in the history of bands)
Primal Fear
Falkenbach
Xandria
Suidakra
Iron Savior
Wolfchant
Stormwarrior
Disillusion (awesome band)
XIV Dark Centuries
Secrets Of The Moon
Assassin
Thrudvangar
Menhir

^ Just about the opposite of what the above guy said for me. Yeesh.


Someone "into Viking Metal" but hates Amon Amarth...and says Meshuggah is above average. I do hate Opeth, though.

I got myself the debut LP from Wintersun recently, and have to say I liked them immediately despite not having a lot of experience with that sort of metal. Great stuff.

Lol Amon Amarth does suck. Just because I like a genre, doesn't mean I have to like every band in that genre like you guys do. It's like the blind leading the blind. OMFGZZZ a new death metal band filled with chicks from North Korea?! OMGZZZ they must bez goooooooddddddzzzzz!!!!!!

Also sorry I haven't heard of At the Gates, seems I lost trade value because I haven't heard every band in the world.

I'm just kidding. I realize there's good metal everywhere, but there also seems to be a lot of crappy symphonic/power metal coming from the Netherlands, too.

WHAT? I don't understand this statement at all.

I'll agree with some of this. Opeth has lots of good stuff, but they have also made some crap. I don't like much of their newer stuff, and Akerfeldt is starting to annoy me (he's seems very pretentious). In Flames sucks now, and their older stuff is just okay. I like Amon Amarth, and Meshuggah's kind of boring. How you have never heard of At the Gates... I just don't know.

-I like Folk too, and a lot of those bands in the first list are good. I will agree that Finland has some better Folk than Sweden.

Now, onto that second list:
-How can you say you hate these bands, and then say COB is "meh". You can't think they're "meh", and also hate them, it's one or the other.
-I don't like Nightwish either, as I don't really like Power Metal w/ Female Vocals. The Power Metal I do like is stuff like Blind Guardian, etc.
-You obviously have never listened to any of Amorphis's older albums. They have some classic stuff (Tales from the Thousand Lakes, etc.). I think their new material is good though too, for what it is. I liked Skyforger.
-I like Finntroll. They're not as good as some of other stuff you named like Ensiferum or Moonsorrow, but I like them.
