    He's my favourite, too.

    Actually I was about to mention that Finnish reggae is a thing.

    Now that I've listened to them more closely, I'd say these guys are stupendously good for anyone who loves 'classic' heavy rock.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    Kotozakura… for reasons.

    Today the YouTube algorithms sent me towards Hirosaki, Aomori! Today was a good day.

    Lyhyestä virsi kaunis. The first one appears to have been shot in Japan.

    Hey, now I can see it. Nice to see I've got someone to delurk themselves. I'm a bit of a font junkie, so I do recognize Storm as a font producer! I believe Czech and Netherlands are the two (relative) powerhouses in this area of expertise. I'll search for those names mentioned! Excellent! I wouldn't have guessed though, that someone abroad knows Linkola.

    Oh, I've seen it. For once a reactor (funny word to use about a person) had done his homework. Far too many reaction channels offer nothing meaningful to the song. Unfortunately no Kratzenian has yet introduced their favourites, so I'll add few Finnish female artists.

    Oh, Ieva's polka resurfaces semi-regularly, it seems. I noticed some time ago that my newly found favourites Отава Ё (a folk (not sure about the categorization) group from St. Petersburg) has their own cover of it, but the video doesn't include themselves, so I'll add two of my favourites from them below. Gyulain Prince I remember being mentioned in this context. I need to schedule that link. My personal favourites among the first-time Floorgasm experiencers are HalfLifeSistah and Wolfkain. That woman's reaction and its intensity came as a big surprise to me. I tend to get emotional with music, but nowhere near like she does. Now that I've mentioned this, I guess I need to provide the link to that one as well.

    So their fame has dwindled. Nothing's permanent. If your grandpa retreated through Lapland, I'm afraid my late father (being of the youngest cohort to be recruited) was after him. Never in a million years would I have thought Munamies is known even in Åland, Internet or not. Let alone anywhere else. Nightwish, of course, leads me to what Finland is known (if known at all) in regards of music, viz. the heavier stuff. Let's see who to mention in this regard. Meanwhile the reaction channel favourite:

    I did smile at the end. I have nothing against those guys but that stuff just isn't my cup of tea.

    About the only thing I can tell about Lordi is that the local metal audience tends to be more or less embarrassed about them ("that shameful ESC participation and – hell forbid – a victory"). I count myself among the majority in this. Everything about them is worthy of quadruple facepalm. Even a Kiss tribute band would be less cringey. The local national broadcasting company happened to write about their later endeavours just few days ago (in Finnish only, unfortunately) and how this sentiment lingers on after well over a decade. And why not? Everything about them reeks of puerility and not in a sense, say, Hevisaurus does. Hevisaurus used to be my niece's huge favourite, but now at the ripe old age of almost ten, she's grown out of them. So sorry, I have no insight about this. But here's a kiddo metal song anyway.

    Yes, I hear Eläkeläiset ('Pensioners') has for a long time been popular in German speaking Europe. At one time the band consisted of so many members, it was able to give concerts simultaneously in Finland and Germany. But I wouldn't mention them in any "serious" context. I wonder how they can be enjoyed without knowing the lyrics. Or with knowing them, actually. Halavatun papat operates on the same field. If they exist any more as it seems their vocalist just died. I won't link to a song of theirs for reasons of modesty. Oh, a Nightwish reference...

    Anything goes. Most everything worthwhile was done before 1789 anyway. Well, there are exceptions.
