Hellsinki” Finland’s heavy metal fans placed masks on four giant statues in the capital city to honour hard rock group KISS.

The statues, officially called “lantern bearers” but better known among Finns as stonemen, were given their makeover to mark the band’s 10th concert next week in the Nordic country, which has one of the world’s highest concentrations of headbangers.

Heavy metal is hugely popular in the Nordic countries but particularly in Finland.
