It's unfortunate really.
I think what made those so good was that they weren't too heavy, so a lot of people could actually listen to it. Amon Amarth's "Twilight of the Thunder God" is my 2nd all time favorite record I think. It's solid, but unfortubately it's too heavy to ever be mainstram In Flames's "A sense of purpose" is also super good, at least that's a little more to mainstream... Sure, those bands you mentioned had some amaxing songs, but I think there are equally good records being made today, but they're harder to find due to it being so many bands having records published today?
