* MelodicDeathMetal: Probably the easiest label for them, and they most definitely served as an UrExample and TropeCodifier for the heavily keyboard-laden, power metal-flavored side of the genre as played by Ensiferum (who actually predated them but had nothing but a demo out by the time ''Something Wild'' dropped), Norther, Kalmah, Wintersun, and similar bands.



* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Their style can be summed up as "Neo-Classical [[ProgressiveMetal Progressive]] [[BlackMetal Blackened]] [[MelodicDeathMetal Melodic Death]][=/=][[ThrashMetal Thrash]] PowerMetal"... or something. Generally it's easiest to refer to them as "extreme power metal" (Note: Not to confuse them with Music/DragonForce, who call themselves this, but have more SpeedMetal than Extreme Metal in their sound), which is what people do. [[InternetBackdraft It's not a good idea to mention the black metal influence among devout metalheads, of course]].

* WordSaladLyrics: Very, very often. This can largely be owed to Laiho's less-than-spectacular grasp of English.
