MUSIC: Finland Rocks

Last night, SzélsőFa emailed me a song by Nightwish, a Finnish band, and today I read an entry by Nike on nBlog, called "Those frickin' Scandinavians," which talked about music. HIM, Nightwish, Lovex, and Sunrise Avenue are just a few in a long list of current music from Finland—it's not all tango and polka, peeps.

I hope Katja (who is the music half of us and who even knows the lead singer of HIM), will soon do a proper article on current Finnish rock music. When she does, I'll link it here.

Until then, "Guardian Angel" by Lovex, and the gorgeous "Cyberpunk meets BDSM" video.

Among those, I liked Nightwish the most. Thanks for opening up my eyes re: Finnish contemporary music.

Darling, thanks for linking to my Blog. :) I am looking around in here and find it to be highly interesting. We seem to share not only our tastes in music, but also in literature - and other things. :)
Keep the good stuff coming. :)

Oukei, Lovex and Sunrise Avenue... I'd much rather listen to Finnish tango and polka for a week nonstop, than those two ! Especially S.A. gives me a bad rash. I really have to do a new cd for you :) I am going to add Aino's favourite band's video into my blog today. Be ready for Kotiteollisuus...

nimim. "Aaaavaaan meren tuolla puolen jossakin on maaaaaaaa"

NOOOOO! How can you rather listen to polka than Lovex?? Ok, that just blooows my mind. But a new CD will be much appreciated.

Because Lovex is aimed to 12-year-old girls.
