A month's worth of reasons to vote for Helsinki in 2017, part 20

I'm posting a different Finnish metal video every day in June in support of the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid. Why? Because Finland is metal.

All I've been watching on Youtube for the past week has been Finnish metal, visual kei bands, and Witcher 3 gameplay videos. My recommended videos are bonkers.

This video popped up in my recommendations today. It's a good little death metal tune, but what really sets this apart from the typical band performance video is all the lovingly-shot hair. This was directed by someone with a passion for hair. Possibly an award-winning director of shampoo commercials.

This Deathchain, with "Seven Asakku Shadows". An asakku is a demon from ancient Mesopotamian mythology that steals men's hair. (Ok, I made that last part up.)
