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!! Fuckin EVERYTHING I like is comin outta Sweden.
