Metal Fans Learning Norwegian, Finnish?

There’s a report I read on Blabbermouth, basically claiming that the world over, fans of Nordic metal are committing full-time to their adoration.

To better understand the music, they’re allegedly learning languages like Norwegian and Finnish.

Can this be even remotely true?

Could this be such a trend that it necessitated a report like this? I don’t see it happening in America at all. Unless my friends are all secretly listening to Rosetta Stone tapes of Nordic languages.

“It’s quite a well-known phenomenon that students in Italy study Norwegian because they’re interested in metal,” a Norwegian professor in Italy named Siri Nergaard said.

See the following video report.

Any of you folks willing to own up to studying Norwegian or Finnish?
