I didn't found earlier topics about this, so I created a new topic and it's about finnish metal bands!
I am from Finland so I know alot about of them. Here are a few of my favorites:

I'm pretty sure that everyone knows about the Eurovision Song Contest winner Lordi
Lordi - Raise Hell In Heaven
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiQ3i5MwWrg

Then we have our beloved band, Nightwish
Nightwish - Wish I Had an Angel
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0awOhthRG0

This next song is my favorite from Children of Bodom
Children Of Bodom - Hellhounds On My Trail
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qSIupWxKc8

This one is a pure classic
Doom Unit - Killing Time
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a3O33dtnts

This next song is just crazy!
Korpiklaani - Vodka
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7kJRGPgvRQ

Redy to hear some finnish language?
STAM1NA - Valtiaan uudet vaateet
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Bk7EjFDsIY

World didn't end in 2012 because of this song
ENSIFERUM - From Afar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALrjjJdmxgA

Amorphis band brings Finnish mythology to life!
Amorphis - Silent Waters
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P4rL_btdwY

Apologize for bad quality, but these guitar-riffs are so good!
Viikate - Mies ja kuusi kantajaa
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk-2tKyVTC0


One of my favorite powermetal bands!
Sonata Arctica - Wolf and Raven
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY3wHogSyWs&list=UUWkJT6uIIpC2NpmSuiSCynA&index=42

Need more power metal?
Stratovarius - Hunting High and Low
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WT-wxAHYYw&list=UUWkJT6uIIpC2NpmSuiSCynA&index=59

Well, this is something different! :P
Battle Beast - Enter the metal world
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja6fFOJ2bXs

Jesus wasn't there, but Apocalyptica was!
Apocalyptica feat. Corey Taylor (SlipKnoT) - I'm Not Jesus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMLsF8ajI6U

These guys were also in the Eurovision Song Contest, but the song choice was wrong
Teräsbetoni - Taivas lyö tulta
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K0wJEcte-8

This song makes me dirty!
Thunderstone - Dirt metal
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asEljFxzlu0

We like to call these guys finnish vampires
The 69 Eyes - Lost Boys
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_qye6m6nnI

Need more screaming? Here you go!
Norther- Mirror of Madness
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjEXb5hKRek

This singer is just awesome!
RUST - Miss You
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0Yhp_uwdjA

This song is rushing my head!
Poisonblack - Rush
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3Q4CZux9Kg

I want to listen this song forever!
Tarot - I walk forever
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9rFH9voBtY

Now let's end this list with a metal choir!
Northern Kings - Kiss From A Rose
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDLSlg78gFU

If you want so, I can update more finnish metal bands to this topic!

Finland is my favourite place in Scandinavia, simply for the music. Ensiferum are a German band with Finnish blood, and they have a few songs in Finnish, including some song titles aswell. So I think they might count, if you wanna add them. They're pretty similar to other Finnish metal anyway, so.

Tarja era nightwish is one of my favourite bands, especially the song Ghost love score.

Tarot (Marco from Nightwish's band) is also really good.

I have only heard the Levan polka cover by Korpiklaani but I like it.

STAM1NA - Valtiaan uudet vaateet was the only one I could enjoy; the music video was pretty cheesy, like most metal music videos. lol

Well, if we're talking about Finnish Metal, Nightwish (when Tarja was still part of the band) always comes to mind.

Favourite Song? They're all pretty awesome, but 10th Man Down tops my list

How are Ensiferum German in any way?

Don't let it bother you too much. Was just a mistake. I was listening to Blind Guardian at the time, I remember.

Thanks for all the links, FatalVerse--I look forward to checking out some new Finnish bands!

I agree with everyone about how the best symphonic metal (and just good music in general) seems to come from Finland these days. Nightwish is my #1 band of all time, but I also really like Sonata Arctica, Delain and Amaranthe from the Netherlands, and older Within Temptation and Tarot. Also, Xandria's latest album seems pretty good, though I haven't had a chance to listen through the whole thing.

I agree with MiseryKitsune--"GHOST LOVE SCORE" by Nightwish is my favorite song of all-time. Other fave NW songs are:

-Beauty of the Beast
-Nemo
-Dark Chest of Wonders
-Ever Dream
-The Escapist
-10th Man Down
-Poet & the Pendulum
-Last Ride of the Day
-End of All Hope
-Wish I Had an Angel

Ahh, actually, the list could go on forever. I really love Nightwish.

I also love Tarot! (and "I Walk Forever"--gets stuck in my head very easily!) My fave Tarot song is probably "[url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbPZWYnBlz8"]Ashes to the Stars," however. It's just so epic and star-crossed sad... (and you've gotta love that video--Vikings in Space!!! :D)

I actually met Marco (and got to hug him/take a picture with him) at ProgPower USA in 2010! He was so nice--he (and the other bands) were just wandering around mingling earlier in the show because they didn't go on until late night, drinking and talking with people. In fact, the second I walked into the theater's lobby, he was right there wandering around in front of me, so I ran straight up to him and asked for a photo. He was so sweet (and greeted me with that infectious Nordic merriment I love so much!).

Randomly, Delain was also there that year (the reason I finally bit the bullet and bought my plane ticket), having their US debut, and the whole band was super-nice as well. I love Nordic metalheads--nicest people ever!
