    Re: Which country produces the best music?

    Finland definitely in my opinion! Most of my favorite bands are from there.

    Finnish bands whose (whole) albums I enjoy and have on my mp3 player:
    Battlelore - ...Where the Shadows Lie (2002)
    Brother Firetribe - False Metal (2006) | Heart Full Of Fire (2008)
    Children Of Bodom - Follow the Reaper (2000) | Hate Crew Deathroll (2003) | Are You Dead Yet? (2005) | Blooddrunk (2008)
    Ensiferum - Ensiferum (2001) | Iron (2004) | Dragonheads (2006) | Victory Songs (2007) | From Afar (2009)
    Finntroll - Midnattens Widunder (1999) | Jaktens Tid (2001) | Visor Om Slutet (2003) | Nattfödd (2004) | Ur Jordens Djup (2007) | Nifelvind (2010)
    Korpiklaani - Spirit Of The Forest (2003) | Voice Of Wilderness (2005) | Tales Along This Road (2006) | Tervaskanto (2007) | Korven Kuningas (2008) | Karkelo (2009) | Ukon Wacka (2011)
    Moonsorrow - Suden Uni (2001) | Voimasta Ja Kunniasta (2001) | Kivenkantaja (2003) | Verisäkeet (2005) | Viides Luku - Hävitetty (2007) | Tulimyrsky (2008)
    Nightwish - Angels Fall First (1997) | Oceanborn (1998) | Wishmaster (2000) | Over The Hills And Far Away (2001) | Century Child (2002) | Once (2004) | Dark Passion Play (2007) | Imaginaerum (2011)
    Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica (1999) | Silence (2001) | Reckoning Night (2004)
    Stratovarius - Elements, Pt. 1 (2003)
    Tarot - Gravity Of Light (2010)
    Turisas - Battle Metal (2004) | The Varangian Way (2007) | Stand Up and Fight (2011)

    Those are just the ones where I've added whole albums. There are definitely more Finnish bands I enjoy that I haven't got full albums of.

    The UK produces excellent music, probably the best when it comes to English-speaking songs. I also tend to like what Sweden produces.

    Belgium's music scene is not very well promoted but I think it produces some pretty good music, although of course I'm biased.

    Re: Which country produces the best music?

    Impossible question and unfair due to the massive exposure of American promotion when it comes to chart music. For me personally right now, charts have no real impact at all. I'm almost exclusively dependent on active music exploration or the music articles/blogs I choose to read. Nordic (Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark), The UK, Germany and The Netherlands music development interests me for the moment. I'm quite unimpressed by the current British and American music scene and if it takes the effort of searching for goodies, I rather do the search in more exciting places. I would like to hear more from Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Turkey and beyond. I'd love a more dynamic Eurovision!

    I don't know what to answer in this question, I like music from many countries, but I'll mention one country that is very underrated, or maybe not well promoted: New Zealand. I know many songs from NZ that could easily be worldwide hits but they are completely unknown!
