    So there is this really amazing burger restaurant where I live called Kuma's Corner. It's a metal themed restaurant that makes gourmet burgers named after metal bands, and they often try to use ingredients that capture the "flavor" of the band, or the country they come from, or some kind of song reference. For example, the Ghost burger had a red wine reduction and communion wafer. The Pantera has a bunch of spicy ingredients and tortilla strips. They list "Anger" as an ingredient on the Slayer burger lol! The best burgers I have ever had in my life! You gotta check out their menu: http://kumascorner.com/menu

    Anyways, I recently emailed the location near me, suggesting that they make an Amorphis Burger for their March Burger Of The Month, to celebrate the upcoming US tour. They emailed back, simply saying "We like where your head is at." lol! So we shall see whether this ends up happening! There are three locations in IL, so chances are good that one of them will do it lol!

    I started thinking, this would be an interesting discussion for the forum. What would you put on an Amorphis Burger? You can use any ingredients you want. Kuma's uses a pretzel roll bun and 10oz patty on all of their burgers, and then get creative from there. Let's hear your ideas!! I'll post mine as soon as I come up with something!

    Finally...the moment for which they made this:

    They should, however, go for either a Devil's moose burger or a breaded pike fillet.

    The Bourbon Sauce is a great idea! Maybe make that Pike Fillet Beer Battered with Ale From The Thousand Lakes!

    I've now realized that I know absolutely nothing about Finnish cuisine.

    Here's what I'm thinking so far, (credit to Tounelan for the Pike & Bourbon Sauce idea!)

    10oz Beef Patty on a Pretzel Roll Bun
    Fresh Pike Fillet Beer Battered with Ale From The Thousand Lakes
    Hopeless Bourbon Sauce
    Pickled Bearberries
    Crumbled Feta Cheese
    Spinach Leaves

    To make it real Finnish, the bun should be made of dark rye (we even have an official metal version, see image below) and indeed the beef replaced with moose or reindeer (sorry Santa). Also it should be aurajuusto instead of feta, that's a Finnish blue & white cheese that indeed is popular on burgers (I wouldn't order one without it) and otherwise - try for example stuffing salmon with it (Esa's recipe from a few years back, turned out to be quite delicious).

    And let's not forget a nyhtökaura (pulled oats) version for Santeri. :)

    I suppose chanterelle mushrooms could also be in order.

    Sounds like lovely suggestions! Is aurajuusto kind of like a Blue Cheese?

    yes, a bit like gorgonzola but milder in taste. Goes with pretty much everything and also tastes lovely just by itself. :)

    I guess Kumas didn't take my suggestion. They ended up making a burger for the band Green Jelly. :cry:

    I'm disappointed, though I tried the Green Jelly, and it was delicious!!

    Green Jellÿ: 10 oz. beef patty, sliced beef gyro, herbed goat cheese, jalapeño-mint jelly, topped with buttermilk breaded deep fried zucchini strips!
