It can, however, feature characteristics that are not very common in the Western Metal community, which I believe is what you were trying to say here. Metal with oriental and middle-eastern influences, for example, Melechesh, Aeternam, Tengger Cavalry and heck, even Baby Metal.
In terms of northern steel, some of Metal's oldest and finest tunes are from Scandinavia and are highly accounted for. Hailing from Black Metal to Power Metal.
Russia is currently undergoing a MAJOR new wave of Djent, Prog and Tech. With the rise of bands like Periphery and Tesseract this is the new trend along with Brutal Technical Death.
A NWOTM (New Wave of Thrash Metal) is also at hand, which is great because honestly I think everyone is a bit over saturated with the old-school Thrash bands from the late 70s-80s.

Here's a fairly good song by Skinflint. Forgive me Samuel if I'm wrong, but to me you can hear how it sounds like classic metal.
