Top 10 Metal Bands of Nepal

The metal scene of Nepal is a fusion of raw power, cultural influences, and an unyielding spirit. It might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of heavy metal, but Nepal has a thriving metal scene that's been making some serious waves. But who are the standouts? Who are the metal bands from this mountainous nation that truly make your head bang?

These bands, with their heavy riffs, throaty growls, and pounding drums, have been adding a distinct flavor to the global metal scene. They're not just about high-energy performances; these bands are known for their ability to weave in elements of Nepali folklore and traditional music into the heavy metal format. The result? A unique sound that resonates with both local and international fans.

Maybe you're a fan of the death metal stylings of UgraKarma, or perhaps you lean more towards the dark, melodic tones of Antim Grahan. Or maybe, it's the thrash metal powerhouse X-Mantra that gets your pulse racing. Whichever your preference, there's no denying the diversity and passion that each of these bands brings to the table.
The Top Ten

No one is better than Equals. They proved it in the global battle of bands.

Nice band with powerful artists.

3 Cruentus

Best of the best. Way better than the rest. All hail metal. All hail Cruentus. I don't know why they are so low.

I'm from Malaysia, support Cruentus.

4 Underside

Underside at number 10? So-called metal lovers should listen to at least one of Underside's songs and see the awesomeness in the video. When it comes to metal in Nepal, it's always Underside!

This band can be an international band because of the quality of the music they create.

Outstanding metal band from Nepal. Amazing vocal.

5 Atomic Bush

I heard only one of their songs named Sano Prakash and it's the best Nepali metal song I have heard to date. It would be great to listen to their other songs.

6 Binaash
7 Antim Grahan

None of the others are considered metal bands!

They are the best. Once considered one of the best Nepali metal bands.

8 X-mantra

X-mantra deserves number 1 position. Real lyrics and great music which touches your heart!

9 Rage Hybrid

Rage Hybrid deserves at least a top 5 position. They're good.

Albatross used to be in the metal scene.

The Contenders
11 Disorder
12 Dying Out Flame

Awesome band from Nepal. They will make history.

13 Shadow In Shade
14 Ugrakarma

These guys created death metal in Nepal for the first time. They gave other extreme metal bands inspiration.

Ugrakarma is one of the oldest and most amazing bands in the death metal scene.

You should listen if you haven't. You will not regret it. Number 1 Death metal Band in Nepal. I don't care about this ranking.

15 Narsamhar

17 Jugaa
18 Lost Oblivion

Different type of genre compared to other bands with strong lyrics and vocals.

19 Ayurveda
20 Nastik
21 Divine Influence

23 Kalodin

Do you really think Kalodin is number 19? You've got to be kidding me! They deserve to be in the top 5. The vocals, guitar riffs, and lead are amazing. How come Albatross is number 2? They are a rock band, not metal.

24 Tumble Weed
25 Sabotage

Aspiring young musicians. They have not released any songs but I have still heard them play. Good wishes.
