for sure.

I think I get it, and for that Martyr really represents the scene in my opinion.

Can someone name some other Canadian Death metal bands? I can only think of 4 bands: Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Martyr and Neuraxis.

FearFrost and Beast of Carrion are right. So far, everybody else doesn't show any understanding of the word 'representative;' I see a bunch of lists made up of somebody's favorite band from a given country. That said, it's not really that good of a question.

Most representative bands from each country.
US- I'd say Suffocation
Sweden- In Flames and At The Gates are definitly main influences on most of the bands from there.
Poland- Vader
Finland- Don't know, lots of Folk Metal stuff. Finntroll maybe.
Norway- Emperor

This is about metal. I don't see how Beethoven reprents all the metal bands from Germany.

how big of an impact has he had on people who play metal?

All of black metal sucks his dick, and alot of prog musicians do too.

LOL

nice wording..

I figured Cryptopsy is definitely representative of Canadian Extreme metal. Its an exageration of all the other key elements from extreme bands I can think of from Canada.

Shame I dont live there. The UK? From the area Im from, Carcass. (Thanks tim)

All the extreme bands here have an element of old school writing but also a willingness to branch out, but theres always an element of grind ness.

Thats my reckoning anyways. I dont know about the WHOLE of England, but certainly the bands I listen to, yea

No, Tranny, it wasn't. It was somewhere in between, which is better, but not the same thing. If it had been the same thing I'd have singled you out when I singled the others. You may understand what representative means but your list doesn't evince that. I'll get into specifics if you really want so much attention paid to your list, but I don't see the point of it.

Wagner is probably more representative of Germany than Beethoven. Jingoistic, overreaching, hateful, throwing everything in ad hoc, and the result occasionally so sublime we can forgive the rest. Then again, this all doesn't have much to do with the music Germany has produced recently. The band for that job would probably be Kraftwerk. In the realm of metal, probably Rammstein. And now I hope everybody sees how silly this question is.

PST how is that different from what the OP wanted? those are bands that are forerunners and good representations of metal from their country. sodom (kreator also) are pure german thrash, norways black metal scene is well represented by darkthrone, etc

I can see that you tried - if I couldn't tell that by your original post the fact that you've tirelessly, obnoxiously defended it would tell me that. And in the case of Norway you've probably chosen as well as you could, though why Darkthrone is any more representative than, say, Mayhem is lost on me.

But Bodom? Most Finnish bands aren't really in that direction. TOOH? Your favorite of the three Czech bands you know. Too small a sample to know which one, if any, is the most representative. Germany's biggest scene in the 80s was power metal, not thrash; Helloween, not Sodom. I guess it's better than choosing Necrophagist. I know a few Dutch metal bands, but none that sound like Pestilence. etc etc.

Dealing with extreme personal preferences and certain information gaps is just one of the reasons why I think this is a silly question. In the end it's not practicable, and, unless you're dealing with a case like AC/DC in Australia or Rush in Canada, it won't have an answer.
