Not counting English, I'd say this. I absolutely love it. Kevin posted it some years ago.

K, so other than English and Swedish songs. Here's a Japanese metal song that I've loved ever since I first heard it in a Mike Tyson highlights video:

Probably my favorite "extreme vocals" ever.

Another good one.

Not really foreign, since it's Scotland's indigenous language, but as it's not my first language I'd say this counts:

It's one of the most beautiful/saddest things I've ever heard.

You know if you (or native English writers in general) want to share why you like Finnish metal or write reviews,

it might be quite easy to get them published: bands’ sites, Finnish metal music publications etc.

They might even want to interview someone like that for the radio. Why does someone in another country/US like a quite unknown local metal band?

Those who are heavily into metal usually like this festival: http://www.tuska-festival.fi/en/. The location is a bit urban to my taste, though.

If they are using the same concept as in other similar events there, then the sound and food should be good.
