11Artcell (Best Asian Progressive Metal Band)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".
I don't know why DarkenedBrutality said they aren't heavy metal. Well, they aren't heavy metal for sure cause they don't play heavy metal. They play progressive metal and rock. And they didn't plagiarize any song. And they are also on the metallum encyclopedia. And Metal_Treasure said that metallum encyclopedia aren't wrong. They didn't add Avenged Sevenfold but they did add Artcell.
And King Crimson is a very soft band comparing to their music. Because Artcell plays their solos very fast and heavily. You can search for the chords if you like. No band would fail to play metal if they play their music at that rate. - zxm
I know there isn't any category about this. But I know this band works hard. They worked madly for their albums. Especially for 2nd album. And they deserve it. - zxm
They sound more like some King Crimson ripoff who failed at being a heavy metal band than something good. No offense, but I looked everywhere for that one song zxm told me to listen to, and I couldn't find it anywhere.
If there was a catagory like this, surely they would’ve won. - Undistinguished
