Quote:Some of the world's richest nations are home to the largest concentration of heavy metal bands.
Countries such as Sweden and Norway have 53.20 heavy metal bands per 100,000 people, whereas countries in Africa have just 0.001.
What might account for this trend?

LOL, that sounded like a whole lot of BS. I don't see capitalism would be causing this although heavy metal music is a big export in northern Europe. I think it's more about mentality and the fact it's so freakin dark half of the year.

Quote:The Galeria do Rock (Gallery of Rock) shopping centre in São Paulo, Brazil is every heavy metal fan's paradise. T-shirts with the insignias of many Finnish heavy metal bands are well represented here, because Brazil has a taste for Nordic metal.

“Without Scandinavia, metal music wouldn’t be nearly as strong as it is today. Thanks to Sweden, Finland, Norway and a few other countries, heavy metal is still alive and kicking,” says Animal Records owner Carlos Chieroni.
