Best Asian Metal Bands

The Top Ten
1 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".

They are the face of Bangladeshi rock music. I feel proud that this band was born in our beloved homeland! Love and respect for them.

If you speak bangla and you like to hear music , you have listened to their music even if you did not know which band made that music

Only with two solo album and few mixed album, ARTCELL won our heart. Best of the best band.

Every single song is masterpiece. They are huge talented.

2 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".

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.

It's a gimmick, that's why they have become popular. They toured with Lady Gaga as an opening act, which doesn't speak metal.
On the other hand, the band behind the girls is very good and the girls can sing/growl. But first and foremost, the girls are cute. Babymetal is just a successful market product.

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 are Metal saviors. Making metal relevant, more acceptable and, dare I say it, fun. Just watch any of their live shows. Heck, if given the opportunity, attend their live shows.

3 Abominable Putridity Abominable Putridity is a Russian slam death metal band formed originally from Moscow, formed in 2003.

4 Boris Boris is a Japanese experimental band formed in 1992 in Tokyo and composed of drummer Atsuo Mizuno, guitarist/bassist Takeshi Ohtani and guitarist/keyboardist Wata, with all three members participating in vocal performance.
5 Mezarkabul Mezarkabul (formerly known as Pentagram) is a Turkish metal band formed by Hakan Utangaç and Cenk Ünnü.

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.

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

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.

You have to bujhte hobe it's aurthohin. You can make amazing songs with the bass guitar alone. I really hope Bassbaba get well and blows our minds off!

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.
