They are a Danish metal band. Saw them play yesterday with POD, Sevendust and Papa Roach. Can't believe I haven't heard of them until now They were really good.

I'm not sure If they sang that one, I didn't get their set list. Still Counting and A Warrior's Call were pretty good though.

They are OK(ish).

Only problem is that Ulrich is an utterly terrible drummer. And a terrible man for that matter.

The Danish metal scene has never really been very big compared to the rest of the Nordics, which I've always found very weird.

That's because they'll never stand a chance in DK. DK music is all about pop. There're a lot of unknown metal bands in DK which are quite good, they just never get publicity or success because there's no interest in it here.

The guy may drum like a toddler but that won't change that he IS Metallica's drummer and has been for ~30 years lol.

Eh, not impressed by them at all. Radio station here has only been playing them for a couple weeks but makes it sound like they're the biggest band in history.

That song would be more in the hard rock area imo. But really metal music is such a large genre that wth. What to you is real metal?

After listening to a few songs they sound more hard rock, but then again Alternative Metal is the genre that bridges that gap, and I would clarify them as such if I were to call them 'metal'.

That's a weird combination. Does he thrust his pelvis at the crowd while singing "YEAH" the whole time?

Funny enough, the first time I saw them live was when they opened for Metallica. I definitely enjoy their music.

I'm sorry for the rest of the bands you saw though.

Speaking of Danish metal...

Was scrolling through my music collection and found artist I used to listen like 7? years ago.

MNEMIC - Dreamstate Emergency
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chR7VROY99E

Turns out that they have released 4th cd at 2010, have not heard it, will definitely check it out. First two CD's were awesome, third not as good, the only song I can remember about it as "Pig****".
