Best Metal Bands from Finland
The Top Ten
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 Finland
Nightwish are great. Been following them for 17 years now, have 3 tattoos dedicated to them, saw their last ever gig with Tarja and was lucky enough to see them record their live dvd in Finland in 2015. The nature of Finland is a great setting for listening to nightwish and luckily I now get to do that daily with my awesome Finnish son. The old stuff over the new stuff.
I can't believe Stam1na are not on this list!
these guys rule! how wildchild can play like that and sing I don't know! - DopeWithABass
children of bodom rule alexi is so cool and there music is awesome. there new album is sick
Greatest band Finland has produced. Would love to see them live one day
Get this band out of this list. Their music is bland and generic, one of the most overrated metal band ever.
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!
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.V 2 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
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
Stratovarius should be ranked higher than now because the voice is very awesome.
For all of these years, after many changes, they are still awesome.
Timo Tolkki genius of music. Songs are filled with deep meaning, masterpieces, sophisticated technical techniques, emotional choruses, etc.
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.
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!
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...
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.
How is this awesome band sitting at number 9 behind Nightwish, Children of Bodom and Sonata Arctica? Oh yeah, they are not "commercial" enough to appeal to most metal fans..
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.
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 #1
While not exactly metal, it's extremely good. - SoldierOfFortuneV 3 Comments
Damn Petri was hot!
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
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.
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.
Just the best
RIIF IS A KILLER
Simply one of the best metal bands. Listen especially the older production. Very good.
Just listen, you will understand!
Fast and wicked, they do no wrong!
GET STONED! STAY STONED!
Suomi Finland Perkele!
They play the original glam sound!
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...
The best melodeath band ever!
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
Beherit is a legendary band in the Black metal scene.
