METAL


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.

@Tzenker there might be some truth to that. Norway was a little extreme when in came to christianity, and then we gave birth to a satanic and anti-religious music genre :)

@Cyborg_Viking: If I remember correctly, Denmark didn't have as much to rebel against. A laid back culture doesn't spawn as many hardcore rebels. There's probably some curious musical historical reasons too, and if anyone out there has those I'd be interested in hearing them.
