Nightwish and COB are the most popular Finnish bands, right? Easy poll: Nightwish OR Children Of Bodom.

My choice is Children Of Bodom for two reasons: first, I always preferred Extreme Metal, and second, I'm disappointed by most of Nightwish's stuff after Wishmaster. And Anette Olzon's voice is... well, you know exactly how it sounds.

Poll

The ultimate Finnish Metal poll!

You can't compare these two... But I'll go for Nightwish, because they have great vocals, unlike Laiho's crappy vocals (Very painful to listen to and weak sounding in general) and his "wannabe br00tal" attitude.
And my favorite band from Finland (the best, and my favorite) is Demigod.

Good choice man.

Used to listen to some Demigod. Good stuff. Demilich's pretty good too.

Convulse too, Good Finnish DM and better than both bands here IMO, but I guess we should keep this on topic, Despite the fact it was me who started it

Would have checked them out, had it not been for the album's title, but now I totally lost any interest in death metal, and I no longer get very 'offended' by satanic themes.
On topic: Children Of Bodom are really a shame to metal IMO.

I don't think you can call any band "a shame to metal" if they were some "ambassadors of metal" and if they were a disgrace to "metal spirit", you could say that, but there are no such things. And, as childish as their music is (though I get some kicks from listening to a couple of their songs at a time), they were responsible for leading a lot of people born in the late 80's-early 90's into metal, or leading a lot of metalheads into real extreme metal, which is hardly doing metal a disservice. We need those gateway bands.

Actually I just wrote that to stay on topic But what they're doing NOWADAYS is really a shame to metal.

And again I go with the whole "a shame to metal doesn't exist" and besides, opinions aside (I got three or four full listens out of it, had some fun and left it buried in some folders, I know that some people, on the other hand, downright hate it), I'm still amazed as to how can a pretty standard release be remembered as a failure after ALL the horrible shit of last year even if people unreasonably expected it to be awesome, which it clearly isn't, it's merely a blip on the radar next to Illud, Lulu and similar.

Nightwish, easily. The vocals in COB's songs ruin it for me.

Oh my, that was a long time ago, I'd rather vote for Nightwish today lol. To answer your question, Thrash and even some Metalcore can be considered extreme. CoB isn't the same as in the ol' days, but they still sound kinda agressive on some tracks. If your mom calls it satanic, it's extreme

Children of Bodom. Used to liking something is better than never liking something.
Plus Hatebreeder, Follow The Reaper and Hate Crew Deathroll prevail over EVERYTHING Nightwish have ever done.

Ok then what about: "Oh sweet Jesus, [or Muhammad, Vishnu, the Big Black Rabbit] what in the Holy Virgin's name [or Kali, Sedna, Scarlet Whore] is this barbarian noise you are listening to, baby??? We'll have you exorcised tomorrow, all right?"

Nothing as such my mom reply's when I am listening Metal. She only says...Oh crap! and walks off. I've given assurance to her that I won't be turning angry, any kinda exoneration and will be your sweetheart since I was born. She still ignores me.
