I'd say they're older. They really hit their stide in the 90's, and nu-metal was way, way more acceptable then extreme metal, even now.
I don't know if in this day and age we'll see another metal act be able to headline arenas on normal tours other than Metallica and Iron Maiden, but I have no doubt in my mind that LoG will come close within the next 5 or so years.
