vilken svensk musikband är din favorit? 
 
now that i've offended native svenska speakers with my very basic knowledge of the language, i'll ask the english-speakers: what's your favorite swedish band? 
 
i nominate meshuggah. 
 
in before 'ABBA'.

Hammerfall is a Swedish band right? If that is the case, I say Hammerfall until I remember something better.

Evergrey is awesome. Maybe the most awesome of them all?

#4 Posted by Bionicicide (1213 posts) -

Sabaton

old Millencolin

#8 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

If anyone says ABBA, so help me god I will murder you where you sit.
 
Personally, I don't really fancy a whole lot of Swedish bands or artists. There are some songs that I like, but rarely most things by one artist.

Meshuggah. That's as far as my knowledge for Swedish bands go, but still. Thomas Haake is insane.

#10 Posted by TimeWaffle (946 posts) -

In Flames are awesome

#11 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

This.
#13 Posted by Anto0on (14 posts) -

There's pretty many good bands from here. You should listen to Backyard Babies, Millencolin, Hardcore Superstar and like... Cardigans maybe? The Sounds too!

@DevWil:  You got it almost right. It should be "Vilket svenskt band/rockband tycker du om mest?"
#15 Posted by Mikemcn (6988 posts) -

Movits?

The Hives is the only acceptable answer, motherfuckers.  They are law, you are crime.
  

 
 

Refused is second.

#27 Edited by Droop (1870 posts) -

The Tallest Man On Earth! He's Swedish right? 
 
Edit; Oh and I like "I'm From Barcelona" and Jose Gonzalez

#28 Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious (1641 posts) -

Opeth definitely. 

#29 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3153 posts) -

I didn't know The Hives were Swedish. Their music is pretty good.

#30 Posted by Anund (897 posts) -

I have a soft spot for The Haunted 
  

#31 Posted by DevWil (842 posts) -

i like that i haven't heard of most of these bands. 

#32 Posted by Anund (897 posts) -
@mnzy: That isn't true :) I think it's fairly easy to get the money needed to start a band and find a place to play though.
#33 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1232 posts) -

Refused are probably the best (as in what they did for music and how epically crazy skilled they were), but my favorite is The Tough Alliance.

#34 Posted by Black_Raven (1759 posts) -

Abba

#40 Posted by Robiin (294 posts) -

Wow, I'm impressed by all of your knowledge about Sweden.
 
If you understand the language, Organism 12 is the best artist around (pretty niche hiphop though..)

#41 Posted by ThePhantomnaut (6197 posts) -

Besides Opeth, Entombed, At The Gates, etc.
 
Refused. 

#42 Posted by Disease07 (11 posts) -

Refused! 

#43 Posted by Bamsen (342 posts) -

In Flames we trust :-), helt klart det beste bandet. 
In Flames is the most awesome swedish band
#44 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

I would have gone with Arch Enemy a couple albums ago... but now I don't know what.
 
Meshuggah's constant switching between weird timings just sounds cacophonous to me. Maybe it's the way I'm programmed. I get how it's all technically challenging and stuff, but it just doesn't sound very palatable. Here's where metal nerds call me an idiot without taste, and I respond with how shitty they are as human beings. I have a friend who does electronic music exclusively with similar odd timings and I have the same response. It's kinda like hearing somebody speaking a strange foreign language.  Like I said, maybe it's something in my brain being incapable of locking on to the odd beats, but they do not sound how they were described to me.
 
Opeth's actual metal segments are pretty great. But they're usually so sparse.
