looking for a swedish metal album

Hey All,
I just bought Soilwork's natural born chaos, and really liked it. I also bought most of sworn to a great divide.
and now I was wondering what band or albums might be similar. I really liked soilwork's combination of screamed vocals/lyrical singing.
someone recommended In flames to me, however they have a ton of albums, so knowing what I liked from soilwork, would I like in flames, and if so which album. I listened to some of the samples from come clarity, but as many know song samples they give you on amazon are short so aren't real good indicators of song quality.
so if anyone has any advice for me I'd appreciate it. Also are there any other bands I should check out? or, is soilwork unique in their style?
thanks for your help,
J.

P.S. hope my post wasn't too confusing, I wrote it kind of in a hurry, lol.

Well if you're looking for a band from Sweden there is At The Gates.

I am a huge Soilwork fan, and if you like them check out In Flames. Also from Sweden, and very similar style.

Check out something earlier than Come Clarity. Clayman is a good place to start.

yeah, I listened to a few samples on clayman and wasn't sure, but when I bought a few songs from come clarity, I wasn't really impressed, not like I was with soilwork. Maybe I'll go give clayman another listen.

are all the soilwork albums equally as good?

I own all of the Soilwork albums except their first, "Steelbath Suicide" and I would rank them like this.

01. Natural Born Chaos
02. A Predator's Portrait
03. Sworn To A Great Divide
04. Figure Number Five
05. The Chainheart Machine
06. Stabbing The Drama

A Predator's Portrait is fantastic, and if you want another Soilwork album I'd highly recommend that as your next pick but you really can't go wrong with any of them.

Swedish death metal? It's all about At the Gates, Dismember, and Arch Enemy, in that order.
