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".

Lincoln Di Costa, Ershad Zaman in guitar and Shaju in the drums were as a group or as individuals second to none (apart from Warfaze, they are on par) in their prime.

Artcell is not just a band, it's an emotion. The best progressive rock band in Asia.

I have always been a big fan of Artcell. Every song of Artcell is in my blood.

2 Warfaze Warfaze is a Bangladeshi hard rock band.

Ibrahim Ahmed Kamal (Lead guitar),
Sheikh Monirul Alam Tipu (drums and percussion)

Two generation of captivative vocalist in Sunjoy and Mizan Rahman, Guitarists Ibrahim Ahmed Kamal and Oni Hasan were just relentless. Can only be compared with Artcell.

Are you lonely? Sad? Are you missing your friends? Listening to them since my school days. They are the best in they are way...

War faze is the legendary band who pioneered Bangladeshi band music in heavy metal and hard rock arena. Undoubtedly they are unparalleled.

3 X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi.

Asian heavy metal band from Japan.Probably most famous in Asia.

Modern-day rock band, songs are so great, I wish people all over the world knew somewhat Bengali!

Aurthohin is the best band for all time who have all types of song.

They are just top class savage band for their song.

8 Tang Dynasty
9 Blood Stain Child
10 Love Runs Blind (LRB) LRB is a Bangladeshi rock band founded in 1991 by guitarist Ayub Bachchu. The group consists of Ayub Bachchu, Swapan, Masud and Romel.

It's all about the late guitar legend Ayub Bachchu who inspired guitarists in our county throughout the years. And with his death LRB essentially died as well.

Ayub. Bachchu the National Rock icon Bangladesh,all time greatest rockstar in the history of BD music industry...he is the greatest guitarist not only Bangladesh whole asia...

It's one and only in the Asia as well as the world.

The Contenders
11 Nemesis

Maher Khan was an amazing guitarist who lost passion for music and left the industry. But Zohad Reza, the vocalist is still rocking. They have some english tracks as well.

Nowadays nemesis is the best band in Bangladesh.

12 Powersurge
13 Ashes

They are a bit controversial in our country because of the subject matter they cover such as cannabis. But there is no denying of the fact that the vocalist Junayed Evan is very powerful with his voice and music.

Bangladeshi young nation love Ashes for Their unique Style. They've a grate vocalist and huge fan follower.

14 Nagar Baul

Just like LRB, Nagar Baul is all about the legendary vocalist James. I see them as more like legendary solo artist. And in this list I would swap them for Shironamhin or Indalo/Meghdol/Black/Vibe etc.

One of the greatest bands in Asia.

15 Arekta Rock Band

I have been following Arekta Rock Band since the release of their song Shikari. Love how they have brushed up their sound over the releases.

ARB is one of the newer bands working on bringing modern western sound to Bangladesh. Keep going ARB>!

16 Fossils

Band based on Kolkata. rupam islam is the lead singer of this band.

17 System Of A Down System of a Down, formed in 1994, is an Armenian-American alternative metal group from Glendale, California. The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD.

18 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".
19 Junoon

Junoon or Strings from Pakistan. No Comparison. They weren't copycats like the rest, they were legends in their own. Pakistan seems to have the majority of stake in cultural musical talent globally.

20 Underside

Perhaps the best metal band in the current scene.

21 Mezarkabul Mezarkabul (formerly known as Pentagram) is a Turkish metal band formed by Hakan Utangaç and Cenk Ünnü.
