A follow up on the last post about The Discordance: the most excellent Islander over at No Clean Singing was inspired enough by my statifying to do some digging of his own into Encyclopedia Metallicum's database, and did me one better by finding a feature that not only adds in population (by millions of people, rather than straight population statistics), but strips out inactive bands from the totals list for the country. The results are basically the same - Finland, Norway, and Sweden are still the places to go to get metal out the ass - but tiny places like Lichtenstein, Monaco, and Faroes Islands fall out of the list, removing the statistical oddities of my list. Good stuff. Gives me another reason to want to visit Iceland, too.
