25 Pain
26 Enforcer

They're not the best from Sweden but there are so many, who knows. They always put on a great show and I can't get over " the Banshee", a killer song, delivered with a lot of style.

Bringing back old school metal sweden has the best bands nowadays number 3 after opeth and sabaton

Mathias Blad has dramatic vocals. The music is haunting. The lyrics are thought provoking. This band is a cut above and deserves a higher ranking

31 Cult of Luna Cult of Luna Cult of Luna is a Swedish metal band from Umeå founded in 1998. They often perform post-metal music similar to the contemporary bands Neurosis and Isis.
32 Deathstars

Have been listening to Deathstars for about 10 years now and I think they are heavily underrated, between the music and the awesome vocals this band has very little to fault apart from a similar sound between albums. but with many bands the first album was the best and I don't think it will ever be surpassed but it is worth a listen for any industrial metal fan.

The band that stands up to, and is influenced by all the goth metal and industrial originals - heavyheavy

33 Bloodbound

I vote for Bathory cause it's the biggest ifluence for both black and viking metal but this power metal band deserves to be higher than 26 for sure

34 Dead By April
35 Graveyard Graveyard
36 Spawn Of Possession Spawn Of Possession
37 Unleashed Unleashed Unleashed is a Swedish death metal band that was formed in 1989 by Johnny Hedlund in Stockholm. Common lyrical themes found in the band's music include Viking culture, recollection of a pre-Christian world, and Norse folklore.
