So, are there any fans of Nordic music artists? Any genre is fine, but I'm particularly looking for metal, rock and pop.

I like artists like Månegarm (Rock/Metal), Amaranthe (Metal), Haloo Helsinki! (Pop-Rock?), Skálmöld (Viking/Folk Metal), Noice (Pop), Arja Saijonmaa (Pop) and MANY others.

For example, my favorite song by Haloo Helsinki! is "Kiitos ei ole kirosana", by
Månegarm it's "Hemfärd", by Amaranthe it's "The Nexus", by
Skálmöld it's "Múspell" and "Að Vetri", by Noice it's "Du lever bara en gång", and by Arja Saijonmaa it's "Högt Över Havet" (I like this version of the song better. It's from a concert at Liseberg in 2009, and I was there =])

If you like any of those, or just any Nordic/Scandinavian artists in general, feel free to comment your favorites =]

I absolutely love Kygo and Avicii (Norsk + Svensk respectively) but that doesn't really seem to be what you're into.

I like Avicii, just didn't actually think he was Swedish. Apparently his father is Tommy Körberg, a popular Swedish singer, especially in the 80s.
Kygo is cool, just not my style. I mean he makes "alright" music, but not something I'd listen to daily.

His real name is Tim Bergling, so I doubt it.

Yes! I listen to a lot of melodic death and folk metal by Nordic bands, including Manegarm, Ensiferum, Children of Bodom, Wolfheart, Suotana, Satariel, Amon Amarth, Finntroll... I think I'd better stop now :lol:

I love Wardruna- I'm not too sure how to describe their music, kinda how you would imagine traditional Nordic music maybe?

I'm also a big fan of FM Belfast- they're an Icelandic band I discovered when flying to Iceland, their songs were being played over the music system on the plane. I guess they're sorta electro-pop, I find their music really energising.

Finally, Fever Ray- you'll likely recognise 'If I Had a Heart' from the introduction to the show Vikings; however, her other songs are really great too!

Yeah, though according to "Sveriges befolkning 1990" (Sweden's People's Register of 1990), his birth name is "Tim Lidén", so he changed it for some reason.

Oh yeah, Sigur Rós are amazing. Skálmöld did a cover on one of their songs, don't remember which one.

I don't particularly listen to them, but I've seen them at a music festival once, then I listened to them for like a week, and stopped
But they're cool; I think they're from Göteborg, right?

Wardruna are great, yeah. Hopefully will be seeing them in a few weeks but I don't yet know if I'm going to the festival yet.

Just looking through my iTunes collection I have a bit of Nordic stuff:
Amon Amarth (SWE)
Apocalyptica (FIN)
Burzum (NOR)
Ensiferum (FIN)
Finntroll (FIN)
Ghost (SWE)
Hay & Stone (FIN)
HIM (FIN)
In Flames (SWE)
Kaizers Orchestra (NOR)
Korpiklaani (FIN)
Lordi (FIN)
Naglfar (SWE)
Opeth (SWE)
The Rasmus (FIN)
Sigur Ros (ICE)
Solstafir (ICE)
Tyr (DEN)


Most of the music I listen to is from Britain though.

I keep meaning to listen to Windir but so often forget.
While getting a lift from a mate he was playing one of their albums in his car and I must have asked him three times what the band was as it sounded really good. Although because of the pronunciation of the band name (and his accent) I didn't realise that he was talking about Windir until the third time!

Zara Larsson, yes, I've seen her at Bråvalla once. Based on your given bands, you might like "Haloo Helsinki!", they're a pop-rock and punk band from... HELSINKI! (who would've guessed!). Listen to Jos Mun Pokka Pettää or
Vapaus käteen jää by Haloo Helsinki!. I'd consider them "beginner's" songs :lol:.
They sing in Finnish, so you likely won't understand a single word, unless you speak Estonian, Finnish or one of the Sami languages (Despite the fact that I speak Northern Sami, I just like their music).

Nationalism much? xD
Also, abbreviation for Iceland is "ISL", as per "Island", Iceland in Icelandic.
But yeah, most of these are amazing, and I'm a long-time fan of these. Lordi represented Finland in Eurovision a couple of years ago I believe.

Eh, of those it's really only Burzum that has any obvious nationalistic tendencies, and that isn't really incorporated into the music. And yeah, I completely forgot that about Iceland. Had a bit of a brain fart and just went with the first three letters.

Yeah Lordi represented Finland years ago, this is where I first heard of them!

Are you Finnish or Sami yourself? That's so cool!

I think he meant you're a Nationalist in the sense you mostly listen to British music? :dontknow:

Aaahh, I see. The reason I listen to a lot of British music is because

a) a lot of it is really good
b) supporting your own local scene is good. I try to support bands from my area where I can.
