Bhutan doesn't have any information about number of metal bands there, therefore it is grey which looks a bit like red from the picture.

Us Northern Europeans can walk through the airport metal detector naked and still set it off. Didn't know Finland had so many bands though, I haven't heard a lot of them.

There are some metal bands in Finland. They have a strong folk metal stage with Finntroll, Turisas and Korpiklaani on the top, but also Ensiferum, Amorphis or Moonsorrow which are also good bands. There are some bands influenced with gothic music like Nightwish or HIM (ok, this one is [gothic]POP-metal ), or Apocalyptica, but there are also bands like Celesty, Thy Serpent or Hevein. Try also some other finnish bands from other genres like: Children Of Bodom, Tarot, Stratovarius, Warmen, Cadacross, Lordi, Mors Principium Est and many many more Finland have lots of good metal bands

PS. I'm from Poland It's not my advertisement of Finland :P

And you cannot forget the Finnish death metal scene from the nineties. Demilich, Demigod, Convulse, Sentenced, Unholy, Purtenance, Adramalech, and the aforementioned Amorphis.

That's quite a lot of bands - I can only name a few Norwegian ones.
