About Capital of Metal

The Capital of Metal campaign sets out to determine which Finnish city deserves to be known internationally as the Capital of Metal. It also spotlights Finland’s position at the centre of the global heavy metal community: Finland has more metal bands per capita than any other country.

The Capital of Metal website and campaign are a collaboration between Tuska Festival, Sony Music Finland, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, thisisFINLAND and the Finnish cities of Helsinki, Joensuu, Jyväskylä, Kemi, Kuopio, Lahti, Lappeenranta, Oulu, Tampere and Vaasa, with support from Radio Rock, Record Shop X, Musamaailma and Inferno.
