If the ratio were to be GOOD metal bands per 100,000 people, UK, USA, and Canada would have all of em beat.

What is "good metal"?

Bands that have gained a decent following by producing well made music. I'm not gonna go out and say that Black Metal and stuff like that are "bad genres" because there's no such thing as a bad genre of music, just bad artists. Most Black Metal artists are absolutely terrible, at least all of the ones I've heard. And the Scandinavian countries are mostly Black/Death/Shock metal bands.

No. I'm going to list a couple of awesome nordic metal bands with a decent following.
In Flames
Sabaton
Meshuggah
Korpiklaani
Children of Bodom
Soilwork
Ensiferum
Amon Amarth
Backyard Babies
Mustasch
Turbonegro
Opeth
Dark Tranquility
Candlemass
Bathory
Crashdiet
Ghost
Raubtier
Therion
Dissection
Entombed
Swallow The Sun
Finntroll
Lordi
Sonata Arctica
Turmoin K├Ątilot

And those are just a very little handful.

I didn't say they didn't have any, but compare that to the amount of success the UK and USA have created.

At the moment, Scandinavia/Europe are making by far the best metal, and, at the moment, most generally successful, I'll list a few bands that have primary sung vocals so you won't try and argue that it's Black Metal

Helloween
Blind Guardian
Sonata Arctica
Nightwish
Hammerfall
Amaranthe
Epica
Amorphis
Powerwolf
Stratovarius
Avantasia
Edguy
Within Temptation
Leaves Eyes
Elvenking
Rhapsody Of Fire
Dragonland
Wolf
Sabaton

In my opinion, the only good Metal bands to come out of the UK in the last five years are Hell and Pythia, and I can't name any American bands that have rose to prominence in the last five years that I enjoy. Other than Dream Theater and Kamelot, US metal does nothing for me.

And, again, a lot of those bands are very bad Black Metal artists.

You say 'bad' like it's true just because it's your opinion.
And there's only one black metal band in there, just shows how much you actually know about metal...
