    Everyone enjoys all the European or American metal bands... but anyone ever thinks about Asia? What are your favourite bands from there?

    I'm a Hong-Kong girl, the underground metal bands absolutely SUCK. messiah is about the only acceptable one here, but even so they still suck, but in China, especially Beijing, there are some damn good bands!

    My favourite Asian bands are:
    Sigh - a damn good band!
    Ritual Day - black metallish, they're really good, I was surprised.
    Chthonic - their "Resurrection of the Gods" was completely awesome
    Gate of Meditation - is brilliant..
    Seraph - some good stuff
    Cankered Corpse - very interesting :p

    Anyone who has a wide variety of likings really should check these out! you can come surprised...

    Well done on a topic idea. I don't feel qualified to list my favorites as I don't think I've heard enough.

    I'll add to the thread by mentioning Rudra, though.

    Rudra rocks.

    Eh, at the moment my favorite band from Asia is Spitz, from Japan.
    Some really really great music and musicians.
    And ambigious, poetic lyrics.
    Their latest album is quite good.

    Fortunately, I have the country of origin in parentheses after each band name on my playlist. Japan, Taiwan, and India were the only three nations that returned any results though. I wouldn't say all of these are my favorite bands, but they were all good enough to remain on my playlist.

    Anthelion - Melodic Black Metal (Taiwan)
    Blood Stain Child - Melodic Black Metal (Japan)
    Chthonic - Melodic Black Metal (Taiwan)
    Galneryus - Neo-Classical Power Metal (Japan)
    Narsil - Death Metal (India)
    Seraphim - Melodic Power Metal (Taiwan)
    Sigh - Avant-garde, Black Metal (Japan)
    Galneryus and Seraphim are both power metal. Galneryus has a male vocalist who sings in Japanese and Seraphim has a female operatic vocalist who sings in English.
