there's a huge Swedish death metal scene...which includes none of those bands. they're melodic death at best, and...melodic death at worst. but, still, you need to do stuff like Entombed, Carnage, Dismember and Nihilist (early Entombed, but better)
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

the swedish death metal you're referring to is more specific to the Gothenburg area, known for its melodic death metal scene (obviously, death metal that is more melodic in the positive connotation that has become attached to the word)
which differs from its american origins, which evolved pretty much directly from thrash metal, making it rawer and less "melodic" than their swedish counterparts
edit: misanthropy; i've seen you report so many threads and double posts and whatnot; are you like...
UG's hall monitor or something?

I should hope not, UG shouldn't allow Table-ist-Nazi-Pirates to be Hall monitors.

...i'm being an asshole? you said a few bands that you claimed represented Swedish death metal, i said that they didnt' and gave you some better examples. how is that being an asshole? if you wanted to do it on melodeath, you should've specified that.

just wikipedia "melodic death metal" for more information on the bands you listed and how they differ from other death metal bands (of course there are exceptions; some great traditional death metal comes from Sweden, and there are of course melodic death bands from other places, but its origins are in Sweden (and England with Carcass)

American death metal= No burnt carbs

Actually that's Norwegian Black Metal (mostly) and he's doing his strictly on Death Metal.
