it isn't really about geography, since geographically Denmark isn't part of Scandinavia (but northern Finland is). Denmark, Norway, and Sweden are far more similar culturally and linguistically than the rest of the Nordic countries, and so most Scandinavians don't recognize Finland, Greenland, or Iceland to be part of Scandinavia.
I love Scandinavian music, on the best in the world <3 and I listen to many of Finnish music and a little Swedish and Norwegian music, I love skandinavian languages and I like to look for new bands and artists form Scandinavia :) There is so many good and wonderful music...
Scandinavia =/= Finland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Estonia, Latvia, Ireland, or literally any other country or territory you can think of besides Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. I thought this was common knowledge.
@ killUwhnUslp there are plenty Swedish Viking/Folk metal bands, they aren't all black or death. Same goes from Progressive metal bands etc. Also you cannot automaticaly compare Sweden to Norway just because they both dabble in Black metal a lot. The music industry in Sweden is far larger than all of the Nordic countries and they've had success in basicaly most genres. Norway on the other hand has just begun to really venture out.
I finally have gotten my act together and made something out of the last.fm page that lutenist was so kind to start up for me quite a while back. 4 albums uploaded so far to the profile: http://www.lastfm.se/music/Christian+Munthe
