The Contenders: Page 2

21 Den Saakaldte

Black metal in Norwegian. Formed in 2006 - 4 albums (2 in Norwegian and 2 in EN).
Try "La vinteren vare evig" - one of the best black metal songs. - Metal_Treasure

22 Aurthohin Aurthohin Aurthohin is a Bangladeshi hard rock and metal band formed in 1998 by bassist, singer and songwriter Sumon. He is the only founding member still with the band . Aurthohin are known for their mix of melodic acoustic numbers and extremely heavy metal numbers in their albums often containing lots of bass more.

I don't know why this band isn't on Encyclopaedia Metallum while Warfaze is. - zxm

23 Dir En Grey Dir En Grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

Their style of music is similar to that of their compatriots Destruction, Sodom and Tankard; along with those three bands, Kreator has been referred to as one of the "big four" of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer more.

They sing in English. If they didn't, they would be number 1 - gemcloben

A German band. A pioneer of the thrash scene.
On the best thrash metal bands list it is in the TOP 5! - a7xrules

27 Maximum the Hormone
28 Xe-NONE

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

30 Master's Hammer

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

31 Gris

Atmospheric black metal from Quebec, Canada (sing in French). They are very good.
Songs: Veux-tu Danser? , La Dryade, Il Etait Une Forêt, Dil (2013).

La Dryade - acoustic instrumental black metal with strings involved (which is pretty unique) - Metal_Treasure

They are not a metal band. They're alternative rock. And they sing in English - zxm
