Top 10 Best Bangladeshi Rock 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 perfect definition of progressive metal. Never-ending riffs and dramatic guitar solos are the main attractions of this band. The mesmerizing lyrics with the depth of vocal pitches, along with harmonic bass notes, are mind-blowing. And who is going to deny how superb the drum tracks were set for each song? I would kill to see their one last performance again.

No doubt, but still the best band in Bangladesh. I just love their playing. As I'm a die-hard fan of progressive playing, Artcell is the only option to be chosen. Besides, the vocal of Lincoln daa is just unbeatable. It seems like a clone voice of J.H Metallica.

Though I could vote for Warefaze, I didn't. Because they don't play various songs much. But I love them also as I love Aurthohin too. But their few tracks like Nikristo1, 2, 3, Guti etc., which I like most, just push myself to think those tracks are nothing but a computer sound effect.

2 Warfaze Warfaze is a Bangladeshi hard rock band.

Line Up:
Palash Noor (vocal)
Ibrahim Ahmed Kamal (Lead guitar),
Sheikh Monirul Alam Tipu (drums and percussion)
Samir Hafiz (Guitar),
Shams Mansoor Ghani (keyboards and vocals)
Naim Haque Roger (bass) .

Multiple changes have taken place in membership since its founding in 1984 . Since their inception, the band has released eight... read more

Subjectively, Artcell is the best. I love Artcell's songs a bit more than Warfaze. But objectively, it's Warfaze who is better. They were the first metal and hard rock band of this country, with more influences, better musicians, more albums, more active, and a wider range of genres, etc. They even remade their old songs for new generations. Plus, their musicians taught instruments to other band members too.

Artcell is kind of bad at this point. They released only two full albums. They have been saying they will release their next album for more than 3-4 years. But all they ever end up with is one or two singles every year. They rarely perform at concerts. Two members are living in Australia and stopped practicing with them. The lead vocalist lost his vocals. Only the lead guitarist is perfect. The other three members barely do anything now.

While there are other good things about Artcell too. They never changed their line-up. Most of their songs are good. Their music was more creative compared to other bands. They had better music arrangements. More technically talented musicians. The lead vocalist once had very good vocals/voice, until he became fatter and fatter and lost his vocal skills.

So, in this case, both Warfaze and Artcell are very close contesting bands. It's your opinion what you want to choose.

3 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 slaps, taps and solos.

It's very hard for me to choose between Artcell, Aurthohin, and Warfaze. All three are amazing but if I have to choose one, it will be Aurthohin just because of their range of songs. It doesn't matter if you feel sad, angry, happy, nostalgic or seek inspiration, they have a song that matches your mood. And of course, there is Bassbaba who has shown to music fans in Bangladesh that a bass guitar is not just a supporting instrument.

Compared to other bands, Aurthohin is more talented. They never had a fixed vocalist. Most of them were busy with their instruments. However, Sumon was always the lead singer. But comparatively, he isn't a very good vocalist. I like his singing, but he isn't like Mizan, Lincoln, or Jon Kabir. He is the best bassist in Bangladesh and one of the greatest bassists in Asia, and also the world. They had several guitarists. Shishir is now playing good lead guitars along with keyboards, proving his multi-instrumental talents. Ibrahim Ahmed Kamal totally changed the band. Piklu also did great guitar solos in the early days. Russel Ahmed was also a good backing vocalist and rhythm guitarist in the early era. But Rafa made significant changes to Aurthohin. He played a lot of instrumental roles. He joined as a backing vocalist. Later he drummed for the band. Still, he was a very good backing vocalist. He also played guitar, tabla, flute, etc. He played some solos too. He also sang songs like Anmone, Kadbo Bishshoye, and some other songs. They went downhill after Kamal and Rafa left the band. Their last album wasn't very good. Mark Don may be a good drummer, but Rafa and Kamal will remain the legends of the band.

However, they are talented. They played a lot of good songs. But I don't think they are better than Artcell or Warfaze. Objectively, they may be. They released a lot of good albums continuously every year. But they had a lot of lineup changes. While Warfaze is more influential and Artcell had better music arrangements. So, being number three is a perfect place for them.

4 LRB (Love Runs Blind) LRB is a Bangladeshi rock band founded in 1991 by guitarist Ayub Bachchu. The group consists of Ayub Bachchu, Swapan, Masud and Romel.

If you're talking about the "Top 10 Hard Rock Bands of Bangladesh," LRB should be at the top. Artcell, Warfaze, and Aurthohin are not "hard rock" bands. They are heavy metal. I'm sure they can top the "Top 10 Heavy Metal Bands of Bangladesh" list, but not this one. LRB should be at number 1.

Only for LRB people of all generation in BANGLADESH has been involved in rock area. AB is a kind of guitarist who can challenge any guitarist of this world.

LRB is only the band who have huge versatile songs & music.. The number of hit & good songs of LRB is much than any other bands in Bangladesh!

5 Shironamhin Shironamhin is an independent band from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Their music has a mixture of a wide variety of influences, including classical and folk traditions of Bengali music and rock music.

I can't imagine how one can write such types of songs, how one can sing so beautifully like from the core of heart and how a total band can make such kinds of songs... You are totally great... Your songs can give inner peace...

Shironamhin is my favorite band among all band of Bangladesh. Your songs give me peace in heart. Now I want your net album. I think vocal Tanir Tuhin is the king of vocal. I am the great fan of your. You are king of the band.

I am a big fan of your band. Cause your songs have the abilities to give soul peace. Your songs are spiritual and very much reality based. I think that the ranking is

6 Nemesis

They are simply awesome. With Maher Khan's solo and Zohad's vocal they sound simply amazing. They have that touch and feel of rock music that the Bangladesh music scenario has been looking for a long time. Best of luck to you guys.

Nemesis is the best youngest band! And I am sure that one they will become the best band in history with maher khan's solo! I love the way he plays guitar I'm a fan of nemesis

I think this band has a real rock vocal like Zohad and also awesome guiterist called Maher. They have done a lot of work which are liked by young generation. They are smart in music and as well as in stage performing.

7 Miles

Miles is the legendary band in Bangladesh and is also very well-known abroad. The music they have created is just great, with a number of all-time hit songs. They opened the door for other bands and showed how to make good music. Not only their music composition but also the lyrics they've used in their songs are significant. They are a very smart, tight, and the best band in Bangladesh.

MILES, legendary band in Bangladesh. 20 years old songs of miles give me pleasure still now, these songs never be old. MILES is evergreen. No band in Bangladesh can be compared with MILES. It's true. Miles is a legend.

Bangladeshi band music has got a road by miles... Miles is the pioneer band of Bangladeshi music scene... Only for MILES people of all generation in Bangladesh has been involved in rock area.

8 Nogor Baul

Nogor Baul is not for the time, it's for forever. Only James is the pioneer of rock bands in Bangladesh. James is the best performer in concert. He is a practical, romantic singer. He sings for humanity too. Only James is the singer who makes his listeners spread his music to every part of society, country to country. Only James is the singer, who stands in a leading position for 30 years. He is known as the Asian Jim Morrison.

Nogor Baul James is the best with an unparalleled voice and quality as a stage performer. That's why the band is the best. Moreover, James, who is the vocalist of this band, is called Guru in Bangladesh for such music in the music industry. No doubt, he is the only one who is the best in Bangladesh - just one name, and that is James, which is why Nogor Baul is the best.

I believe from my heart nogor boul is best band of Bangladesh, now not only country wise nogor boul is most popular for other country also, only bogor baul can create youth of young generation, we should be proud for nogor baul.

9 Black

Black is a band only one loving band of Bangladesh. Only in the songs of black anyone can find the real love and real pain. Try to love and listen black. Not artcell, warfaze, aurthohin, they are the god of pain song almost the world.

Black! The first alternative rock band in Bangladesh. Their sound quality is so good! An uncommon band in our country. Maybe at first you can't take the songs as good, or maybe you will not understand the meaning of the lyrics. Keep listening. After some days, you will say, "Wow, what is this? What am I listening to?"... and you will keep listening to Black! Black is "Love"!

Black is always best. They have their own style and that style is really uncommon. Their vocal Jon is really very much awesome. His vocal is really uncommon. And guitarist Jahan is really JOS! (Fantastic)

10 Vibe

Shuddho's vocal! Is that guy an alien or something? Such a nice voice and of course, all the other members of Vibe are also very talented. They know how to mix talent and composition together. I want them BACK! If any of the Vibe members are seeing this, then please guys, come back and release another album. We really want you guys on stage! You are the future legendary band of Bangladesh, though you guys are already considered as legends by many!

They have just won the hearts of so many people with just one song! Durey Durey is a very old song. Many people love it. But when they came out with Chena Jagat, people's minds were blown away! They are the best. All members are talented. And as I know, they are currently taking a break. I wish they get back soon! I love Warfaze too, but the old one. Sanjay Vai, Russel Vai, Kamal Vaiā€¦ they are too good! Legends! So Vibe will get the best vote.

Vibe is the best rock band in Bangladesh...
They should come back to the stage and show others who are they and what can they do with music... I pray that one day they will perform in stage

Best thrash metal band from Bangladesh!

12 Cryptic Fate Cryptic Fate is a progressive metal band from Bangladesh formed in the early 1990s. They started out as a heavy metal band. Their first studio album, Ends are Forever, was released in 1995.

Undoubtedly the best in Bangladesh. Their sound is very original. Besides, they have experimented across different genres and the diversity of their music is astounding.

Cryptic Fate is the Band and Sakib bhai is THE MAN. He can sing a heart touching love song but he is a born Rocker and always choose to sing in high pitch but sweet (or rough! ) rock tone.

They are one of the best if not the best metal band in Bangladesh. All of their albums are great especially the danob album. Moreover the drums and bass are as good as their guitars.

15 Shunno

Shunno beyond doubt! Just let some more years pass by and you will see and know why they will be up there in the top

Shunno has done a lot of good compositions so far. All of their songs are really awesome. I dunno what other people thinks about theirs songs but I like their songs most of all... They are young, smart and energetic and deserve thumbs up... :D

Shunno is the most talented band in Bangladesh. Too much creative, and their lyrics, the rhythms are just awesome. I like Emil vai and Labib and best wishes for Ishmamul.

16 Rock Strata

One of the pioneers of Heavy Metal/Rock songs. Rockstrata, the band that started the Metal revolution in Bangladesh back in the mid-80s. With other similar bands like In Dhaka, Rock Brigade, Aces, and Warfaze, Rockstrata started out in the late 80s and is still considered to be the first Metal band.

RS was the best at their time and still their album is the best for the composition, music and lyrics.

Real pioneers of hard rock in Bangladesh.

20 Moruvumi

Hello, I'm Shukhon from (DHAKA) - Mirpur. Actually, this band is a very upcoming good band in Bangladesh's band history. They are all doing very well, getting bigger, more active, and growing more fur every day. I think all of their songs are very different types. They're all playing variations of retro garage and soul music - or bringing. You are going to make it. Love you, Moruvumi Band, and all of the band's members. Just keep at it and cheers.

Moruvumi = love...
None like this band... Their solo, composition, lyrics, tittle all have a extra different touch love it...

Moruvumi going to be the next rock sensation of the nation... Keep up the good work!

21 Ashes

Ashes is like a family among those who want to hear something about their pain which is stored in the heart. Ashes is not just a band, it's a family, it's a relation between music and pain. Finally, Zunayed Evan is the person who speaks to the ear of the people who want to shut their life lamp down by music and says that it's only you who have the rights to receive your pain and it's you who has the right to give love to them who gives you pains. ASHES A/

Ashes is One of the top underrated band of Bangladesh. Who has some awesome unique songs. They are doing really great in this time.

The vocalist really tear the soul by his voice, what ever the lyrics is!
