Sweden produces bubble gum music for the mases and purpose is to sell.
Finnish music has more soul in it...they don't always do it in mind for selling records they do what they want to do.
True and in Finland alot of music is sang in FINNISH. Thats also reason why so many bands are so popular when those are sang in your own language. Kent is a good example of made swedish music in SWEDISH not in english.
What about Poets of the Fall. Weren't they some sort of success atleast in Germany?
Talking about finnish bands that is.
That's a great band but haven't had success. HIM, Nightwish, Children of Bodom and Apocalyptica are maybe the front runners. Hanoi Rocks is still in cult status...and Guns N Roses stole some image from them.
