Top 10 Metal Bands That Don't Sing In Englishryanrimmel
The Top Ten
You don't need need English to understand their songs, cause they are a prog metal band, their instrumental part is very long - zxm
The band is flawless and will continue being a very successful band.
This band needs to be top. I'm not a Rammstein fan. - IronSabbathPriest
I expected Rammstein to be no1 easy, I guess ill check em out - EliHbk6 Comments
I'm kinda feeling ashamed of liking this band. I can understand their language in their songs cause I'm German/Aussie. - Mumbizz01
They have a few English sounding songs like P***y and Amerika. But their songs are still really cool.
Waidmanns heil kicks ass
That's awesome even if you don't understand what is mean4 Comments
The name "Mezarkabul" means Pentagram in Turkish. As a result, this band is sometimes confused with the American Metal band known as Pentagram. They obviously sing in Turkish and are a Traditional Heavy Metal band for the most part. - ryanrimmel
Their original name was (still is) Pentagram but in order to avoid confusion with the American metal band Pentagram, from their 2001 album "Unspoken" on, they began to use the title "Mezarkabul" on international releases. And yes, they DO sing in English. In fact they didn't have any Turkish songs until their fifth album "Bir" (except one cover of Turkish folk song Güandüz Gece on the album "Anatolia" by Aşık Veysel). and even after that, 2-3 Turkish songs on each album, at max. So they mostly sing in English. Regardless of the language though, you should definitely check out them, they're awesome.
Recommended album: Unspoken
I completely forgot to add equilibrium. Thank god you guys did - ryanrimmel
This band totally kicks ass so underrated
Japanese Sludge Metal/Drone Metal band. They have some pretty good songs if you are into Stoner music. - ryanrimmel
They are amazing.
^Amen to everything, though 3) is not right. That isn't a movement. It's just a fanpage that isn't even run by Finns.
Mostly power metal but also heavy metal in Finnish. Some songs use viking/pagan lyrical themes and folk tunes. Their singer is the best metal singer from Finland (Jarkko Ahola). They deserve to be in the top 10, if not higher.
Missa Miehet Ratsastaa, Metalliolut, Kuumilla Porteilla, Teraksen Taakka, Paha Sanoo, Konstantinopoli, Pyha maa, Maailma tarvitsee sankareita, Ala kerro meille, Saalistaja, Uudestisyntynyt, Voittamaton, Taivas lyo tulta. - Metal_Treasure
This band is very special - I’ve never heard of any other metal band with such a unique bio:
1) They got their first recording contract thanks to a nation-wide petition. The band performed only live at clubs but excited fans circulated a petition, demanding a recording contract for Teräsbetoni, and sent it to several record companies. The band signed a contract with Warner Music in 2005. This is a very unusual way to get a contract but it's very democratic.
2) Then Finns elected Teräsbetoni to represent Finland at the Eurovision International Song Contest 2008, with their song Missä miehet ratsastaa. Oh, those Finns - they really love metal and of course, they love Teräsbetoni. This contest is not for metal songs but Finland sent a metal band to represent them! Isn’t that amazing?
I don’t know if Teräsbetoni won the whole thing but here’s their Semi-final performance, live (YouTube: "ESC08 Semi-final: Teräsbetoni - Missä miehet ratsastaa (HQ)" - Metal_Treasure
About 10 albums in Norwegian - Black metal, Folk metal, medieval music, Dark Ambient, Experimental.
Burzum is one of the top 10 black metal bands.
To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan but Varg is really good at what he does. - Metal_Treasure
Classic Heavy Metal band from Wales. They sing in Gaelic Welsh. They actually have great songs and they are from the NWOBHM. They obviously didn't get much commercial success due to the fact they didn't speak English, and they were overshadowed by bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Motörhead. - ryanrimmel
Hungarian Speed Metal band. Sometimes they are considered pioneers of Speed Metal along with Motörhead, Anvil, Accept, and Exciter. - ryanrimmel
Pure metal from Hungary. Rock on! A bit correction: PokolGép and not Pokoljép...
French Thrash Metal band - ryanrimmel

@ryanrimmel - I like AC/DC but if a metal band gives me the AC/DC vibe, it's not good because AC/DC aren't metal. Just saying. - Metal_Treasure
Traditional Heavy Metal band from France. Listening to them really gives me the AC/DC vibe. - ryanrimmel

They are a Norwegian folk metal band and sing in the most unique language ever - Trollspråk, which is a fictional language and is a mixture of Norwegian and German. Trollspråk is the language of the trolls (you have to hear that).

Russian industrial dance metal band (sing in Russian, EN and German).
Song in Russian - Cyber Girl (RUS).
I'm not their fan and this isn't a recommendation - just an invitation to check them out if you like this subgenre (adding a dance vibe to metal music sounds kinda weird to me).
I added Xe-NONE and Eisenherz mostly because Ryan wasn't sure whether there were bands playing dance metal, other than Oomph!
For sure, there are even more bands than those 3. - Metal_Treasure
German industrial dance metal (in German).
Song - Engel Der Nacht. - Metal_Treasure
Black metal from Czech Republic. Good videoclips.
Many fans think their best albums were 'Rituál' - 1991, and its follow up - Jilemnický okultista.
But the band is still active and released songs with more updated sound.
Songs: Vracejte konve na místo (2012), Cerna Svatozar, Mezi kopci cesta je klikatá. - Metal_Treasure
Atmospheric black metal from Quebec, Canada (sing in French). They are very good.

La Dryade - acoustic instrumental black metal with strings involved (which is pretty unique) - Metal_Treasure
One of the most interesting metal band in history. I really love their experimental sound.
Cracking Welsh speaking (mainly) - dazter
What the hell? They do sing in English. Plus they're not a metal band at all.
They are not a metal band. They're alternative rock. And they sing in English - zxm
Troll item. Trolls are everywhere, like mosquitoes. - Metal_Treasure
