This article was inspired by a brief weekend trip that I took to Helsinki while living in Russia, and while there I paid a visit to PRKL, one of the many metal bars in the city. While in there, I got thinking about which other places in the world would be required visiting were someone to make a “Metal Pilgrimage” to the important sites that saw the creation of various subgenres over the decades. Here is the result of this pondering, embellished with a bit of investigative journalism. Places ordered however I felt like it.
