Best Metal Bands from Finland
The Top Ten
Nightwish is the best Finnish band without a doubt. Great music and amazing live performances... unlike wannabe Moonsorrow who blow.
Awesome band! Great songs!
Music - the power of the lyrics - a fairy tale, the voices - lovely
Tuomas - God, Marco - a brutal man, fire, Erno - northern elf, Tarja - goddess, Anette - Sun, Jukka - a great drummer
They're all great!
The great Finnish band for the first time connected the symphonic power metal with female operatic vocals! Tuomas Holopainen - the genius. Tarja and Anette beautiful singers!
Ya... Nightwish is superb. Music, style, lyrics and voice all are outstanding. I like Anette's voice very much. Tarja was great too. They truly deserve to be the number 1 metal band of FinlandV 3 Comments

One of the best bend in finish metal and the whole world. They are epic for their signature series Tone and Pattern. They are Riff are too melodious then COB. Of cores their lead are too awesome... Love Love Love
This is the first metal band I have ever heard, and it exceeded my expatations completely. Wow, they have very meny great songs and I like many of them. Tony Kakko's voice is fantastic and their melodies and the structures of the pieces are unique! They really are great musicians, all of them.
Sonata Arctica manages to incorporate many emotions in their lyrics, while painting a vivid image in their listeners heads. :D
Not to mention, the music itself just owns.
They grow and change and get better all the time!
Tony Kakko is one of the best male vocalists of all time!V 2 Comments
Melodic death metal at it's finest! True melancholy and beautiful brutality from Finland!
Insomnium, such a fine band with the beautiful melancholy in its spirit makes it one of the best. - Ananya
Insomnium should be in TOP 5 best metal bands in Finland.
The best melodic death metal band EVER!
Love jari and of course love wintersun I'm from Canada a nother land of snow and sorrow
Best band ever in the history of universe
How is this lower than HIM when HIM isn't even metal? - Metal_Treasure
Timo Tolkki genius of music. Songs are filled with deep meaning, masterpieces, sophisticated technical techniques, emotional choruses, etc.
For all of these years, after many changes, they are still awesome.
Stratovarius should be ranked higher than now because the voice is very awesome.
Episode and Visions are pure classics in a legue with Rainbow Rising, Machine Head, Piece Of Mind, Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Marching Out,...all other bands on this list---- specially overrated Sonata Arctica---- are miles behind the mighty Stratovarius.
Moonsorrow aren't only the most talented band from finland, they might be the most talented group of musicians ever. Their songwriting and musicianship is unbelievable.
I've spent more time listening to the first track of the Havitetty album than I care to admit. Best Finnish metal band by far, and one of my top 5 bands of all time from anywhere.
Pagan metal from Finland is awesome! Nobody does it better than Moonsorrow! Truly epic! They represent Finland well.
Hey you fools, Moonsorrow should be the first in the list of Finnish bands. THEY ARE THE BEST IN THEIR PAGAN MUSIC...V 1 Comment
I've been into Amorphis since I was 15 (which was back in 95) and I haven't been disappointed yet.
Best band ever!
Amorphis! Then Moonsorrow, Kalmah...
The album, "Under the red cloud", is absolute masterpiece, and I think that the bands is totally aweseome
They have opened doors for all bands from Finland if there wasn't of them Finnish bands wouldn't reach so far. And they went gold in the U.S. first and because of that I think they deserve to be no. 1 without any doubt.
While not exactly metal, it's extremely good. - SoldierOfFortune
HIM is a great band! I always find myself into their lyrics... the song that most fits me is "I love You"... oh... it reminds me lots of things...
HIM is all time the best their cds always have a new sounds and Ville Valos voices is one of the best. HIMs #1V 3 Comments
Damn Petri was hot!
Just the best
Lordi is awesome! They're masks are so realistic and they have a very theatrical show live! They're are world famous for being the only metal band to win the Eurovision - a pop song contest!
They're the reason I love finland som much.
RIIF IS A KILLER
I am a fan of both Nightwish and Xandria. But with Amberian Dawn I have truly found a new favorite band! Ladyhawk is totally electrifying! This band now has my total respect and attention.
Simply one of the best metal bands. Listen especially the older production. Very good.
Just listen, you will understand!
Their debut album was one of the best thrash metal debut albums, and they were teens when recorded it. - Metal_Treasure
Come on guys...They deserve to be on top 10
They are One of the best thrash metal band of modern era.
Listen to their recent album braindead it's great...
Fast and wicked, they do no wrong!
GET STONED! STAY STONED!
Suomi Finland Perkele!
They play the original glam sound!
The best melodeath band ever!
Some of the best Finnland has to offer in the black metal scene, sticks to the good old black metal "sound", but as well to that have created their own sound.
Beherit is a legendary band in the Black metal scene.
A band with Marco Hietala as the bassist AND lead vocalist is worthy of some mention. Their sound is comparable to that of Black Sabbath+Helloween but faster and more charged with more "Maiden" styled lyrics. A good band with originality in most of their songs, lyrically and Instrumentally. Tarot's solos are also truly some to behold. Their songs "I Rule", "Wings of Darkness", and "Pyre of Gods" are the penultimate example of solos so fast that they sound like a swarm of electric flies in your ear. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone.
Should be on number one... they are incredibly original!
Great band! Ari Rocks!
"Amoral is an exciting modern metal band. Great musicianship and they know how to write a song too! Watch out! " - Gus G. / Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind
Best finnish metal bans
Not metal - Disturbedpotato
They are from Sweden and not Finland, geniuses. - Metal_Treasure
