Waltari

Waltari . Big Bang Waltari . Decade Led by an orange-coloured abomination by the name of Kärtsy Hatakka, these Helsinki disco/rock mongrels won't let anything get in the way of them breaking as many musical boundaries as possible. Least of all good taste, or good music. At times the results may very vaguely resemble metal. The rest of the time, even more vaguely. Have shared members with Barathrum, Kreator, Sinergy and so on.

Wild Force

Wild Force . You're Allright Wild FOrce . Frozen Hearts Vaasa-based combo with huge hairdos executing good but irritatingly characterless melodic hard rock in the Scandinavian fashion. Renny Harlin ("Die Hard 2", "Cliffhanger", "Cutthroat Island", etc.) directed the video for the song "I Want You to Stay". It's one of the very few Harlin productions where the entire set isn't engulfed in flames and blown into pieces - a bit of a shame really.

Wings . Thorns On Thy Oaken Throne A short-lived death metal band that guitarist Karri Suoraniemi masterminded after his original death metal group Cartilage faded away.
