Here in the US, just about everybody knows about that annoying, purple dinosaur “Barney,” but kids in Finland are more likely to be familiar with the hard-rockin’ metal group Hevisaurus. Dressed up in green dinosaur costumes adorned with extra heavy-metal style spikes, the group produces original songs which could have been written by just about any other 1980′s-style metal band you care to name (though, since I can’t understand the lyrics at all, I can only assume they’re a bit more kid-friendly).
What do you think readers? Is Hevisaurus awesome, or not?
