Best Asian Metal Bands

The Top Ten

1 BABYMETAL Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

Just the best there is in the list. If you want even your youngest child to enjoy metal, they are here. A new dawn of metal genre. We get the best of both worlds, metal and jpop in 1 act. Babymetal.

They aren't bad, in fact they're quite good, but they write some crazy ass songs. However, a lot of the English fans judge by the fact that they are 3 girls who they can't understand. Then again, with the song Gimme Chocolate, that might not necessarily be a bad thing.

They bring fun into a genre dominated by anger and violence.

They are a breathe of fresh air to the genre. A diverse range of songs from different sub-genres of the metal. People say they are a gimmick but why would this gimmick last as long as it is today (7 years) and still going strong even being asked by other bands to perform for them as openers. At the end of it all, they(Kami-Band I think) have an excellent band backing the girls up, the girls are great at singing and bring life in their performance through their choreo and presence.

2 Artcell Artcell is a Bangladeshi progressive metal band formed in October 1999. According to The Daily Star, a leading English national daily, Artcell is "one of the leading bands of the country".

Every single song is masterpiece. They are huge talented.

Best because of quality of music they produce

Artcell artcell artcell my love.

5 Mezarkabul Mezarkabul (formerly known as Pentagram) is a Turkish metal band formed by Hakan Utangaç and Cenk Ünnü.

One of the very few great metal bands to come out of Turkey. They are often confused with Pentagram due to their original name. - ryanrimmel

First two albums "Pentagram" and "Trail Blazer" are raw-thrashy and later albums more of Turkish folk influenced heavy/power metal. Though "Anatolia" and "Bir" are also great albums, personally I like "Unspoken" more. Check out "Lions in the Cage", "In Esir like an Eagle", "Unspoken", For Those Who Died Alone.

6 Katalepsy Katalepsy is a Russian slam death metal band from Moscow. They have released two split albums, one EP, two full length albums, and one demo. Katalepsy has established themselves as one of the most prominent acts in the Russian metal scene, and a popular band in the extreme metal underground.

They played lots of metal songs. In fact some of their members were inspired by bands like Iron Maiden and Deep Purple. They never released a whole metal album. But each album contained some metal songs. And by metal I meant pure metal genres. Like heavy metal, prog metal. - zxm
