Finland To Honour Metal Bands With Special Stamps

The Finnish postal service Posti are releasing a collection of 35 stamps in September, celebrating Finnish music. It includes a set of 6 of the country's most famous rock/metal bands: blog favourites Nightwish, cello masters Apocalyptica, gothic rock bands The Rasmus and HIM, melodic death/thrashers Children of Bodom and 80s glam group Hanoi Rocks. The stamps are the work of graphic designer Klaus Welp.

Nightwish band leader Tuomas will doubtless be pleased to join his childhood heroes The Moomins, who also appear on many Finnish stamps.
