Not as in the lyrics sound Finnish but a lot of Finnish bands have a very similar sound in their tuning and production (at least to me a lot of them have a similar sound to them) and this band has that sound in it's music and production.

Uh, Finland isn't a part of Scandinavia. And even if it was, you'd have to agree that Insomnium, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Noumena and Before the Dawn have a sound of their own, just like In Flames, Soilwork and Dark Tranquillity do

Not to mention ALL of the Finnish aesthetically Power metal-esque bands (CoB, Wintersun, Norther, Whispered, Nightwish, etc.) have a very distinct sound which is what this band reminds me of...

@Arathir And yea, Finnish history is more closely tied to Russian and Estonian history. Scandinavia would be the Viking countries Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland.

Yeah, that sounds right.
In a Metal Hammer article they were indeed compared to something between CoB and Ensiferum.
