Best Metal Bands from Finland
Get this band out of this list. Their music is bland and generic, one of the most overrated metal band ever.
Amazing band! Alexi rules! One of the greatest metal guitarists ever. And their 2019 album is awesome.
Greatest band Finland has produced. Would love to see them live one day
Damn shame I really only discovered them after Alexi died:( Incredible guitar and so many good tunes.
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!
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!
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
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!
Insomnium, such a fine band with the beautiful melancholy in its spirit makes it one of the best.
Melodic death metal at it's finest! True melancholy and beautiful brutality from Finland!
Insomnium should be in TOP 5 best metal bands in Finland.
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
I've been into Amorphis since I was 15 (which was back in 95) and I haven't been disappointed yet.
Best band ever!
The album, "Under the red cloud", is absolute masterpiece, and I think that the bands is totally aweseome
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.
Tony Kakko is one of the best male vocalists of all time!
They grow and change and get better all the time!
Timo Tolkki genius of music. Songs are filled with deep meaning, masterpieces, sophisticated technical techniques, emotional choruses, etc.
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.
For all of these years, after many changes, they are still awesome.
How is this lower than HIM when HIM isn't even metal?
Damn Petri was hot!
One song, Frozen Angel, if there was more like that they would be #1
Love em to death
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...
While not exactly metal, it's extremely good.
Their music hits you in the heart!
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.
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..
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.
Crazy sure, but a lot of fun!
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...
Their debut album was one of the best thrash metal debut albums, and they were teens when recorded it.
Some of the best serious folk metal.
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
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!
Fast and wicked, they do no wrong!
