To me austalia looks like the least obvious metal country in the world, i mean you have nice woman, nice weather, diverse country bla bla bla.

Some country's i can understand;

Poland, with its poverty and pretty grim weather

Scandinavia, 5? beer, freezing your balls off half of the time

But in all that grimness still australia manages to have a steady foot in the metal scene, you guys even have a metal sub gerne.

There must be something that i am missing

Obviously you are the greatest noob to have existed then.

Listen to Astriaal and save your soul and then look on Metal Archives for War Metal.

Because theres predominantly white people living in Australia. I hate everything in the charts at the moment. All crap rock music. I think theres a competition in Australia for which Tv station can play 'Forever Young' the most amount of times. I HATE THAT SONG!! You guys need a taste of NZ Music. Thats where its at.

Yeah metal is minimal here...there's still a scene but like pretty much every country there's at least a small scene of it. Pop, Rap and Emo dominate the music scene here.

yeah, Australia has a small Metal Scene i reckon. We do have alot of grand bands from here, but overall, its majority RnB, Hip-hop and Rap, i have to travel 1.5 hours to find a store that sells metal music!! (Utopia Records - damn i love this place!!!) I wish we did have a bigger metal scene, but unfortunately we dont.

(but then again, for those aussies that think i am wrong, i probably am, cause i have to say, i dont know many Aussie metal bands, even though black majesty is wicked!!!, but yeah give me some shoutouts for bands, im more into melo-death and power metal!! cheers)

Well not really, metal is big over here, but there isnt much big aussie metal bands, its mostly just hardcore bands. I listen to FMR every week and they don't play much Aussie metal either.

FMR doesn't play much metal in general.

And Butterfly Effect are gay and nu-metal.

The Eternal are a fucking disgrace to the Australian metal scene and are most certainly not heavy. That performance at Opeth was one of the shittest things I've experienced in my life.

That being said, yes, we do have some bands capable of massive ownage. Just a few to name: Psycroptic, The Berzerker, Black Majesty, Pathogen, Alchemist, Destroyer 666..........

8 Foot Sativa is awesome NZ band.

And your defintly right about the "Forever Young" song, its ridiculous the amount they play it.

As Dwain said a while back, the Aussie metal scene is so great because we are isolated so we've had a ****load of time to create our own style/sound.
