Yes, it's the US fanbase crying about the new stuff. I'm very happy about this situation cos it might mean that we'll get more of them in europe if they don't need to bother with US gigs. I might even get to see them in Finland. Keep on crying, we'll welcome them with open arms! We got metal on mainstream radio here. It's mostly some sort of melodic metal like A7X, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish etc. More extreme or progressive acts are played on rock channels.
