Why cant all metal be this good?

"If Arch Enemy and Killswitch Engage were to play next to each other, people would fling bags of flaming poo at the latter and continue headbanging to this ausome band. The Swedish metal scene, which, unfortunately, destroys the North American metal scene (Im talking about bands that came after 2000), is blossoming with amazing bands such as this, Dark Tranquility, In Flames, Opeth, Amon Amarth, Soilwork, and Hypocrisy.
Onto the album, everything is top notch. The Amott brother's guitars flow and weave into each other gracefully, Daniel Erlandsson's drums are always complex and interesting, and Johan Liiva's vocals are fierce and brutal. Every song has an interesting riff and drum beat that never stales and always leaves you wanting for more. The solos are spot on, and only Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King or Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman could ever form a better guitar team that Mike and Chris Amott.
Every song is a classic, but The Immortal, Angelclaw, Silverwing, and Pilgrim are my favorites.
Make sure to look into this band more, even with a new singer, their still making high-quality metal.
