Meh, I really don't like 2nd wave stuff. Even if they did give birth to the Scandinavian black metal sound(highly doubtful), they should be nowhere near the top 20, they're a mediocre band.

Way better? Nah. To be honest I like Sodom and Kreator, but never cared at all for Destruction despite being so influential. Coroner are pretty cool but nowhere near as influential as Sodom or Kreator were.
