The headline is stolen – it is not mine… but admit it: it sounds nice!

It is Rolling Stone that have published this beautiful piece of thing, and it is filled with… strange stuff. Of coruse, you should read the article (hey, the pic is from the same place, and you know you want to read about all of this). The list, with some personal comments from your favourite Rebel Angel:

  • METALLICA (yeah right, that will happen…)
  • TOOL
  • DEFTONES
  • ROB ZOMBIE (…oohhh… could not care less!)
  • MESHUGGAH
  • LIFE OF AGONY (ehhhrmm… not in my book…)
  • GOJIRA (for sure, definately, absolutely – so far down the list this is the first I totally agree on and can go bananas over!)
  • NEUROSIS
  • MEGADETH (it’s already out there, right? So… what do you guys say?)
  • SUPERJOINT (….why is this on the list, is my intial thoughts..)
  • DREAM THEATER
  • KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
  • ANTHRAX
  • KVELERTAK (this is very interesting, where do they go from the two first albums…?)
  • KORN (bah!)
  • BABYMETAL (….eh… no. Hell No!)
  • HATEBREED
  • AMON AMARTH (this will be a top killer one, I am sure of it!)
  • ZAKK WYLDE (any year with a BLS-album is a good year… but this is not a BLS-album, I gather..)
  • NAILS
  • ACE FREHLEY
  • RED FANG (yes!)
  • CROWBAR (yes again!)
  • TOMBS (super-yes!)
  • MAGRUDERGRIND

Missing some? I am. And not just “local albums” from little Sweden that might be untinteresting to Rolling Stone. ANCIIENTS, for example!

    Not that much on this list that makes me drooling, at all. I think that Rolling Stone actually should be looking more to little ol´Sweden as we seem to produce so much more interesting these days than what ended up on this list. But that could also be just me, as I’m more drawn to the retro rock scene, where Sweden is among the rulers… 🙂
