So I'm sat here watching Eurovision. Only because my wife is a big fan :/

But I just started thinking, 'what if Eurometal existed?!' :hbang: who would you pick to represent each country? And could anyone make a metal playlist for all 26 countries this year's Eurovision?

All I got so far is: Sweden - Meshuggah (or Opeth) / France - Gojira / Norway - Kvelertak / Germany - Rammstein / UK - Carcass.

1. Israel

2. Poland

3. Belarus

4. Austria

5. Armenia

6. The Netherlands

7. Moldova

8. Hungary

9. Italy

10. Denmark

11. Portugal

12. Azerbaijan

13. Croatia

14. Australia

15. Greece

16. Spain

17. Norway

18. United Kingdom

19. Cyprus

20. Romania

21. Germany

22. Ukraine

23. Belgium

24. Sweden

25. Bulgaria

26. France

For Spain I would choose Angelus Apatrida

That's tough, even just for the UK.

I would almost immediately say Carcass...... But then.... Bolt Thrower????

karnivool or Caligula's horse for australia
Behemoth for poland

Plus let's be honest, as awesome as rammstein is, Necrophagist is a better choice for germany :D

Freak Kitchen seems a more suitable choice for Sweden, given the silly nature of Eurovision...

Not bad, but I'd rather something different for Spain. What about this?

Since metal is so big in the Nordic countries and the UK, in comparison, I don't know if it'd be a fair contest for Southern and Eastern Europe.

Just google search "European Metal Bands"

Opeth, Iron Maiden, Meshuggah, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Mercyful Fate, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Saxon, and Scorpions are the top ten hits - only two of which are from neither the UK nor Scandinavia.

I would say Fleshgod Apocalypse from Italy, and definatly Necrophagist from Germany, though Kreator would be a existing band.
From Finland I would say Wintersun, but there is a ton of choices here.
From Denmark King Diamond as mentioned is a good bet, but for something a bit more modern maybe Tyr (They are from the Faroese Islands, but thats a part of the Danish kingdom).
Austria should be presented by Belphegor \m/

Edit: Norway should have Mayhem (no ....ing brainer!)

Some great bands from Portugal are Crushing Sun, Equaleft, Web (I'm biased on that one :D), Switchtense and a few others.

Keep in mind that Eurovision is meant to be a competition for best new music so I'd like to think the Metal version would be similar.

Australia would be the best each year but there would be some controversial excuse for why we didn't win.
