    Where the heavy metal bands are

    I thought this was funny, Sweden and Finland are Heavy Metal Central: http://www.theatlanticcities.com/art...ands-are/1714/. This is a world map of the prevalence of heavy metal....

    I like Nightwish (and Tina Dico, but she's Danish) myself.

    So, I have a reason to be a proud Finn...
    I like Apocalyptica very much, and liked Nightwish in the times of Tarja Turunen.
    I have even seen many of those bands, thanks to younger boy Finnice, who has needed a chauffeur to the concerts. Opeth is very good, too!

    Finland's metal supergroup Northern Kings have some faaaantastic covers.

    I love Apocalyptica and Sonata Arctica. And HIM. But they aren't always metal.
