Not all the classics tbh. I have like At The Gates, Bathory, Amon Amarth, Dark Tranquility, Opeth, Meshuggah, Cult Of Luna, In Solutiude, Ghost, Kongh.... I think that's it. But I guess that is exactly 10 so that's more than I thought :lol:

Most them music I listen to is American :usa: :jima:

I'd have to give this some thought before posting a bona fide list, but I can tell you right now that this thread definitely needs more Burst.

EDIT: I'm also a little shocked to see zero love for Arch Enemy. Dunno if they'd make my final list, but still - I'd think somebody here has to like them well enough.

Burning Bridges and possibly Stigmata would probably land in my top 50 Swedish albums. Which is actually saying something I think, because probably 30-40% of my favorite bands are Swedish.

I really love this disc. If I get around to making a list for this thread, this disc will definitely be on it.

Fuck, this is too hard. Anyone who knows me knows that I am pretty much obsessed with Swedish grind and death metal. I'll give it a go:

1. Nasum "Human 2.0"
2. Dismember "Like An Everflowing Stream"
3. At the Gates "Slaughter of the Soul"
4. Entombed "Clandestine"
5. Repugnant "Epitome of Darkness"
6. Grave "You'll Never See"
7. Gadget "The Funeral March"
8. Crematory "Denial"
9. Unleashed "Hammer Battalion"
10. General Surgery "Left Hand Pathology"

This would probably change day to day, but the top 5 are pretty solid.

At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul

Their 2007 Reunion tour was also probably one of the best concerts I ever saw too.
