Hello everyone! Tell me somebody,is that possible to take artists list by country name using last.fm api? Not top artists and tracks of the selected country but the list of all artists of selected country name( for ex. germany->Rammstein,Oomph etc.)

I guess it's possible to do so.
explr.fm for example uses country name tags to produce a map of the artists a user has scrobbled.

On this site:
http://explr.fm
they do something similar to your request (of course you need to provide a last.fm username). When clicking on some country, you can have all artists/bands you've scrobbled from that country.
I guess that, since they do this, there IS something useful in the API that could match your desire.
But what exactly is, I don't know. Sorry.

P.S. Of course, the results may not be very exact if some artist name is shared by several artists/bands (take this artist for instance: Shogun -- on that map is displayed for Chile, but there is  Shogun from New Zeeland, from France, or USA, or UK ...). But I suppose this could not be avoided in any way, unfortunately.
