Here be a collection of great music and/or videos that be available in YouTube!
- Ulver - It Is Not Sound (quite a homage to Bach, great song, video and band)
Johnny Cash - Hurt
(infinitely better than the original by NIN)
- Venetian Snares - Szamár Madár (more classical references, Elgar this time, I believe)
- Sly and the Family Stone - Ohio State (at the Ohio State Fair Talent Contest in 1968)
Solla Solla Enna Perumai
The Third and the Mortal - Magma
Zola - Umdlwembe (African native music +
Hip hop + Eurodisco = Kwaito)
- In Flames - Cloud Connected (state of the art of Swedish melodic death)
Captain Ahab - U Want Me (best dance video ever)
Stolen Babies - Push Button (silly semigothic song with great visuals)
- Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - A Hymn to the Morning Star (lovely, scruffy postmodern horror imagery)
- Apocalyptica with Nina Hagen - Seemann (this also totally pwns the original by Rammstein)
- Peccatum - The Moribund People
The Gathering - Liberty Bell
KMFDM - A Drug Against War
(not so great a song, but the drawing style is very much to my liking)
Lemon Jelly - Nice Weather for Ducks
Cradle of Filth - Nymphetamine Fix
- Amorphis - Black Winter Day (Mårtenson Heirship Supremacy)
Electric Six - Danger! High Voltage!
- Ihsahn - Invocation
- Tiamat - Brighter Than the Sun
- Emperor - The Loss and Curse of Reverence (Armadillo Mix)
Lisa Dominique - All Fall Down
- And the best of them all: Manowar - Gloves of Metal (don't miss the battle scene at the end in which the musicians enter from thin air with explosions, kill the bad guys and get all the barbaric girls with 80s hairstyle!)

Great summer activities! I bicycled with two friends from Turku to Helsinki. Although the shortest possible travel distance between these cities is something like 160 km, we spent the night at Tammisaari and rode 300 km in two days.
We based the route on the recommendations in the excellent guide book published by Karttakeskus and it went mostly along The King's Road, an ancient postal route. That was a wise choice, since the route in the guide book was very well thought of and it had only 6 kilometers of driving along a busy highway - all the other roads were quite rustic byways, mostly surfaced, but there were truly enough gravel road also.
Without the guide, we would never have thought ourselves of going under a small subway under the railway, apparently to backward direction, to gain access to old, quiet highway going along the new one. Or we would have missed the photogenetic dams and all the countryside scenery. Hence, the guide book was very useful and I would recommend the Fillariopas series for anyone taking longer bicycle trips in Finland.
