Eurovision Metal Contest 2016 : Group One



 Well, Eurovision has rolled around again and since there's the usual shortage of anything resembling Heavy Metal, I thought I'd redress the balance. It seems to have turned into an annual thing at this point.

 Here's how it works: All the songs must have Metal in the title, it has to be something I've not posted already  and I'm going to try and stick to songs released post 2000.
  Please don't be insulted if I don't post anything from your homeland - I just couldn't find a song that fits my criteria. Maybe next year.

 Since Sweden are hosting Eurovision this year, we'll start with them. 

SWEDEN

Gehennah - Because We're A Street Metal Band (2016)

SPAIN

I'm going to cheat with this last one.
You know how countries sometimes get foreigners to sing for them in the real Eurovision?
(Britain has fielded Americans Katrina & The Waves & Aussie Gina G for example)
Well, this next band are actually Swedish but since they're singing in Slovenian for some reason
I've decided that they're going to represent Slovenia.

Slovenia

Terminal - Heavy Metal Lokomotiva (2014)


Honour to: Thrashwar

See you soon for Group Two.

That's all folks.

  2. For what it's worth I'll give it my 'better than average considering it's the very pop-oriented Eurovision'. First place to Sweden - 'Dr. X Hungry For Metal'. Has good lead guitar licks and a melody line and vocals (ie. best cross-over potential). Second place to France - 'Mystery Blue - Metal Dream'. Like the female vocalist and again a tuneful melody line........but then again that's just my opinion. Thanks for these. Mind you our angelic Dami Im wouldn't be caught dead doing metal......but she's so good I'll bet she could even pull that one off as well.

    1. I bet she'd make a pretty good fist of Symphonic Metal. Lots of vocalists there who sing beautifully.
