    Well Marios is greek and so is Gus but Marios moved to Sweden and the lead singer , Thomas Lindberg is swedish as we well know. Also on the first record Per Jenson played drums and hes swedish. The new drummer and bass player i believe are swedish as well.

    No one said Dismember. And someone(two people!) said The Haunted. I must violently rape and murder everyone in this thread.

    Excluding In Flames of course, 'cause you probably wouldn't be here if you'd not heard them.

    Opeth
    Bathory
    Dark Tranquillity
    Katatonia
    At the Gates (The Haunted just aren't quite as good)

    Dissection never reached the heights that they could've if Jon didn't get himself tossed in jail. Dismember are good and very consistent, but nothing more.
