Scandinavia and the World


Originally it was just about music and Sweden was dressed up for pop, but it then turned into a comic about the famous Scandinavian metal scene.

Norway, Sweden and Finland are known for metal, while Denmark is better known for rock.

Iceland is of course dressed up as Björk. :XD:

Oh, and Finland has that weird reddish skin-colour because a lot of the Finnish metal and rock bands I’ve seen are painted in some way.

@Kalastajamoraali Lars Ulrich (founder of Metallica) is from Denmark. He moved to the United States when he was 15 years old, so yeah. But in comparison to the other nordic countries when it comes to the amount of metal bands, Denmark is quite low on the list.

Also Metallica is recognized as being american, despite Ulrich being from Denmark.

Care less but my favourite metal band from Sweden is to me obviously Sabaton. They sing about past history which most of it is about Sweden during it's great empire. Anyone who understands swedish should listen to their songs, some are also sung in english.

This one is about our king Carolus Rex death:


Interesting stuff..

@Zeust MyRock is just about the only radio station i ever listening to.

Yeah it's a danish band. It's not that we don't have any death metal bands, but they are few in numbers. Give Hatesphere a listen. It's danish as well.

I do really enjoy a Danish radio station called MyRock, which also plays a considerable amount of metal, though admittedly not the heaviest of metal.
Also @Missingno #9364380 Isn't Mercenary Danish as well?

Yeah we don't have a lot of heavy metal here.
Volbeat i think is the most popular Metal band from Denmark, but to my ears it barely sounds metal. More like hard rock.
I prefer Metal Core and Death Metal
