351 Wovenwar
352 Evergrey

Sweden's best progressive metal band - particularly their first 5 albums. Chugging riffs, melodic as, and classy as. Queensryche aside, the thinking man's metal band. From 'In Search of Truth' on, this mob were on fire. They may already be up here, and would be surprised if they weren't.

Attention! If you don't own Evergrey's album The Inner Circle your progressive metal collection is incomplete. Do you want me to personally sell my copy to you? These guys are Queensryche on steroids.

527? You guys don't know what you're missing. This thread should read in reverse order. Top quality thread, by the way. You'll have to hire IT staff soon just to maintain it.

Best band on the planet at this point in time!

353 Soilwork Soilwork Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Helsingborg. They are signed to Nuclear Blast. Formed in late 1995 by Björn Strid and Peter Wichers, originally under the name Inferior Breed, the band changed their name in late 1996 to Soilwork.

I love their perfect mix of screaming and singing, it takes so much effort to do that! It is sad that I have to put Soilwork on this list! At least it is actually metal unlike Three Days Grace and Linkin Park!

354 Hed P.E.
355 Bolt Thrower

Awesome death metal band, the relentless drive of their rhythm section, such mouth watering heavy riffs, you really feel like you have had your head pummeled in after listening to these guys (and in a good way). They have a way of really firing you up with their style of riffs and intensity, great to listen to before participating in sport or something like that, you feel you can take anyone on after a bolt thrower rev up!
