Canada 14.Avril Lavigne (don't know many others :D )
You're stupid.

I usually don't even know where bands I listen to come from, besides my favourite bands. Anyway for Canada it would probably be Stars for me at the moment.

Uk: Anathema (But it would’ve been Queen if they existed)
USA: Not sure something like Ignite, TSOL or Anti-flag or something.
Sweden: Opeth
Norway: Arcturus
Finland: Sonata Arctica
Germany: Subway to Sally
France: Anorexia Nervosa
Italia: Elvenking
Holland: We’ve got waaaay to many good ones :-/ especially in (gothic and progressive) metal. For now I’ll stick to Serenade of Darkness or Slechtvalk, but if The dust connection is ever going to release something new again I may very well switch to them.
Canada: Alanis Morrisette
Irland: The Cranberries
Japan: Mono
Switserland: Samael
Austria: Edenbridge
Belgium: Clouseau (mostly for nostalgic reasons)
Spain: Mago de Oz

Mono is amazing.

Tigger Army

Mono is amazing.

I sure thought so when I saw them playing in Belgium two years ago. Now THAT was playing with passion.

I really need to give them a listen properly. I've dl some stuff but only had one listen when I was quite tired.

I believe they used a friend of mines photo for US tour posters.

I would have said Billy Talent.

Rush is better.

That_Guy91
08-27-2006, 06:20 PM
I know, but im assuming it's an opinion thread, otherwise most countries would only have one or two choices.

Also, you have to admit, Billy Talent is better than every canadian band mentioned here besides Rush.

Sloan is by far the best Canadian band. With special mention going to Danko Jones.

I don't remember what country Sonata Arctica are from. I think it was Finland, right?

Billy Talent gets my Canada vote.

All About Eve
08-27-2006, 07:39 PM
Yeah. SA from Finland, in terms of skill I'd say Dream Theater from USA; otherwise it would be too hard to pick. From Canada, I'd have to say Sum 41, although I don't know many and they're a guilty pleasure of mine. From UK I'd say Muse.

0r4ng3
08-27-2006, 07:40 PM
A year ago, I would have said Sum 41 for Canada, too.

Shortly after, 2006 Jesse would kick 2005 Jesse's ass.

Since so many American bands are known, I think we should go by state.
Streetlight Manifesto for New Jersey!

Canada 14.Avril Lavigne (don't know many others :D )


Our Lady Peace? Barenaked Ladies? Treble Charger? Gob? Protest the Hero? Rush? The Tragically Hip? Matthew Good Band? I Mother Earth?...........

Personally I think Our Lady Peace is the best canadian band out there right now.

Living in Chaos

Axel Rudi Pell is a good German band.

And well, from Australia... The Living End or AC/DC

mrconeman
08-28-2006, 04:08 AM
I don't listen to any bands in a foriegn language...

Ireland: Thin Lizzy
England:/The World: Pink Floyd
Austrialia: AC/DC (by default because no other band from there counts)
U.S.A: Too hard to choose...Van Halen/Guns 'n' Roses...I duno...
Japan: The Black Mages

08-28-2006, 09:50 AM
USA-Smashing Pumpkins
UK-The Clash or The Specials
Japan- Nicotine
Germany Die Toten Hosen (although i do like Ramstein)
Canada- Sloan (again, with special mention going to Danko Jones)


*Billy Talent is good, but they are certainly not the best band from Canada.

rammstein is hilarious. in germany, they're a complete joke. They know they're a joke. Yet people in the states think they're awesome. They have like, fan clubs here. I think they're funny to listen to, but I laugh when people actually like them.

and die ärtze? the best german band? umm...

bd007h
08-28-2006, 10:15 PM
All these people are saying Billy Talent are the best band from canada. The lead singer's voice is barely one step above awful. If it weren't for the music, I wouldn't listen to them.

I guess it's one of those voices you have to get used to. I think it's pretty good.

edit: I mean the old kane and the old di-rect.

when we can exclude the new work then old Within Temptation would kick the asses of both those bands.

Most funny thing with Rammstein is that they're loved only by people who don't understand german (or mostly anyway).

I must say they know how to sound impressive eventhough their lyrics are the worst shit ever.

I still vote for Subway to Sally as number 1 german band.

I have to admit though... Within Temptation sucks.

08-29-2006, 09:34 AM
Why am i funny? Its the truth, Within temptation its just a collection of faggy goths who make music about a thousend other bands make.

Ok i know kane and di-rect arrent really original but atleast there music is better.

Xynobite and smogus are really good rapcore bands, now thats original.

This was hard! I guess most music I listen to is from USA, Uk, or Sweden. Hm, anyway, here it is, in some sort of an order:

USA: Manowar
UK: Judas Priest
Sweden: Falconer (but I love Candlemass and Sabaton as well)
Germany: Blind Guardian
Italy: Rhapsody of Fire (Elvenking seem damn good too though)
Portugal: Ironsword (I've only heard two songs, but I fucking love them!)
Israel: Orphaned Land
Finland: Hm... I guess it's Sonata Arctica or Stratovarius
Denmark: Wuthering Heights
Belarus: Vicious Crusade
Canada: Moonlyght
France: Killers
Ireland: Celtic Legacy

I can't say I regularly listen to anything below Orphaned Land though. I just found out about most of them last week ;p

Kane and Di-Rect just suck ass... Within Temptation as well but they are more talented then those 2 bands.

Smogus and Xynobite don't suck that much, I just don't like that kind of music. But still... Within Temptation is more talented than those 2 bands as well.

That's the band I'm thinking of.
The reason I thought they were British was 'cause someone classified them as "Brit-Pop".
EDIT: No, wait, I was thinking of someone else. Sorry.

More talented definitely. Too bad about the silent force though but when I listen to especially Enter then they're probably the best gothic metal has to offer world wide.

Mother Earth was great aswell but sadly not very metal anymore and well the silent force is rather boring really :-/

But talentwise they're definitely way above direct and Kane... I don't know the other two bands mentioned so I can't judge those...

just wondering... why is your sn tigger army? like, I know the band Tiger Army... is it like a cross between winnie the pooh and tiger army? or what? just wondering... I wonder every time I see it.

Tigger Army
08-29-2006, 03:18 PM
Actually you're right about the cross thing, though I wouldn't call myself a Tiger Army fan. I've got an army of Tigger dolls though (about 20 of them).

I do think Tiger Army is a fairly good band.

With that genre in mind, i'd say DragonForce. But thats 'cuz i'm a mainstreamer when it comes to power metal.

Tigger Army
08-29-2006, 03:31 PM
hey but that's still possible concidering I would be replacing the slot for the USA and you for the UK :)

And uhm, generally in power metal (with all it's cliches) the mainstream isn't a bad place to be ;)

I would like to add Spain - Dark Moor to his list aswell :D

Manowar will always have a special place in my heart. <3 Partly because they kick ass.

And I wonder if anyone could make a list of power metal bands that AREN'T cheesy, haha.

Oh, and Dragonforce... well, I won't say anything this time. ;p

Mannen som blev en gris
08-30-2006, 08:28 AM
Haha, exactly! I can't say they're bad, but a) I usually don't like that kind of power metal (the extremely happy and catchy kind, you know?) and b) there are better bands, who sound more or less exactly like them, around.

Tigger Army
08-30-2006, 08:31 AM
I don't mind happy power metal but I mind when the songs seem to rather similar and that's the problem I had with Sonic Firestorm. Besides I liked their slower songs best but they don't do many of those

ok if sum 41 is from canada, my vote goes for 'em, and offcourse germany has kreator and scorpions, but rammstein is better in my opinion, their lyrics are simple so even i can understand them, the guitars are good to in their songs. offcourse acdc from australia, i forgot the whole country.
