2. How does the climate in Finland affect Finns?
The cold and sometimes severe climate has contributed to the population’s interest in heavier forms of rock.  

3. What is a typical characteristic of Finnish people according to Medium?
Most Finnish people are emotionally restrained. The Finns do not easily express their emotions when they talk. Whatever emotions – soft or hard – they feel, they keep them inside. For them, emotional introversion is a form of learned behavior in Finland and the roots go back quite far in history.   

4. What does Katharina Kiljander think contributes to Finns’ introversion? 
According to Kiljander, the introversion has something to do with the fact that they often want to keep things private. It has not been socially acceptable to show great emotions, for example anger or sadness. One has to appear ‘strong’ at all costs.  

5. How does Katharina Kiljander think Finns treat heavy mental music? 
According to Kiljander, Finns consider heavy mental music as an outlet to deal with their negative emotions. Because they are so private that it is difficult to discuss their feelings, heavy mental music offers a way to express these emotions.

2. “In fact, new research published in Frontiers supports the theory that heavy metal and similar music genres can efficiently express Finnish people's pent-up emotions.  (para 6)

3. The reason why heavy metal might reflect the Finnish mentality is probably because we are so private that it is difficult to discuss our feelings, but still we need an outlet to deal with these negative emotions. (para 10)

4. Those who tend to keep their emotions inside may find themselves drawn to a medium or genre that allows them to do the opposite -  something that Finland has made loud and clear with its growing number of heavy metal fans. (para 11)

V. Further information
Heavy metal music is characterized as powerful and loud. Together, the bass, drums and electric guitar of a band evokes a sound that is aggressive. 

The lyrics of heavy metal music can be difficult to understand at times because of the vocal (声音的) technique used.
