    The American scene will forever more be utter shit. And yeah I live here too. Fuck the US msuic scene. Sweden and Germany and those tyles are where its at. The only thing we've evr had going as far as I'm concerned is Savatage, Iced Earth(pre glorious shitfest)Shadows Fall even tho the new one sucks, Nevermore, Symphony X(They American??) and....... and...... who else is from the states? I like GWAR. Oh Megadeth :) ... AND TESTAMENT!!:headbang:

    Fuckin EVERYTHING I like is comin outta Sweden.

    Ska is shit like No Doubt, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Sublime. Emo I still dont get. I guess its called "Emotional Music" But Everlost Part 2 is emotional music for me.

    All i have to say is, who cares?

    Let us hear the album for ourselves and we'll be the judge of the content.

    As far as american death metal goes, i'd have to agree that some of the best death metal is coming out of there lately. The Black Dahlia murder fucking OWN (melodic death-sue me) , as well as some others.

    For a country of that size, USA has a pretty pathetic metal scene IMO.

    Well, until a country has run out of good bands to listen to, then its wrong to say they have a bad metal scene.

    but what does it matter to me? most of my favorite bands are from America anyway, and I don't really care....

    Same here.

    @Sunlapse, I hate Simple Plan with a passion. But some of their songs have distinctive Gothenburg-styled melodies. And Yellowcard and Rufio as well...but I like them.

    And ska owns.

    thats too broad a generalization i think.... maybe.... its like saying a guitar part plays this certain note after this one, etc.... the problem is just that the musical context of the two styles are waaaaaaaaaay too different to compare.

    Of course.. there are lots of good bands from USA. But compare the scene to the Swedish, Norweigan, or Finnish metal scene. If you compare USA and Scandinavia in size and population there shouldn't even be any competition. That's pretty much what I'm trying to say.

    US underground metal scene is thriving like crazy.

    And if you get over the fact that "numetal" exists, and is good, then America has the greatest metal army ever.

    \m/!!!

    ... fuck the American metal scene. I dont know if you guys actually have good stuff there. But here the only good shit I'm hearing is the shit in my cd collection and what I download.

    well all the great music you have to look for yourself. you should know that. of course you aren't gonna "hear" it, because most people like crap. when it comes to thrash/death, the american scene ranks among the best. the best imo.

    I'm guessing Western Europe will have the best scene soon.
    The US has some great bands (Novembers Doom, Abaroth, Maudlin Of The Well/Kayo Dot, Testament, Deicide), but look at all the great bands coming out of Poland alone:
    Trauma
    Decapited
    Enter Chaos
    Demise
    Aural Planet (not metal, but still good)
    Graveland
    Behemoth
    Misteria
    Devilyn
    Luna Ad Noctum
    Crionics
    Elysium
    Azarath
    Dominium
    Imperator
    Tenebris
    Slashing Death
    Betrayer
    Armageddon
    Violent Dirge
    Hazael
    Domain
    Nyia
    Cerebrum
    Vader
    Hate

    I could keep going on, but there's a list of great bands from Poland alone, and Germany and Holland are also producing a lot of awesome bands (Detonation is one of the best).

    The American isn't going to be as great as you say it is. and it certainly won't beat Western Europe.
