A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.Thing is, Finland has already seen six metal number one albums in 2007. A recent album chart (fi) contained no less than ten Metallica albums (due to them visiting the country for a gig), the top two were local power-metallers Sonata Arctica and some guy named Ozzy Osbourne, plus I counted four other metal acts in the top 40. The question needs to be asked: if the Swedish policy spreads over the Gulf of Bothnia, how will the Finnish welfare state survive?
