Top 10 Metal Drummers from Nordic European Countries

Nordic countries include the Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Norway and Sweden), Finland, and Iceland.

I wasn't sure whether to include Opeth drummers because their status is a bit complicated:
- Anders Nordin is actually a Brazilian adopted by Swedish parents.
- Martin Lopez was born in Sweden to Uruguayan parents, who later moved to Uruguay, then back to Sweden...
