Well I've searched the forums and can't seemed to find a thread on this yet.

Been browsing the internet and have been amazed at the Japanese Metal scene, no not X Japan, The GazettE or Luna Sea anything like that (those bands are great though), I've been delving much more underground and come across some great J-Metal Bands like -OZ-, Unsraw, Screw, Exist Trace (an all female group), 12012 and so on...

So thought I'd introduce some of these bands to you, I'm fairly new to the genre myself so forgive me.

Exist Trace - Judea
-OZ- - Zenith
Unsraw - 9
Screw - Death's Door

Anymore bands I should keep an eye out for?

Jap metal?
Jap metal????
JAP METAL?!?!?!?!?

Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

i saw them live with deftones... it was scary lol.

Not metal.

Sure, stuff from "Withering to Death", "VULGAR", "Marrow of a Bone", etc. are heavier in nature, but, IMO, they aren't metal. ESPECIALLY in their early days.

They're freakin' intense!


I do agree that they don't really qualify as metal, though. They're pretty hard to categorize.

How could I forget about Boris?

All girl jap-death/grind FTW. Well, i would say grind, but some death metalish riffs in there. Anyway, flagitious idiosyncrasy in the dilapidation win. http://www.myspace.com/fidgrind

I'm pretty sure they're Canadian, I might be wrong on that though.

Actually I change my mind. This is the best Japanese metal:

Quite catchy.

My friend is obsessed with that.

Anyway, Sigh, the Sex Machineguns, Gallhammer and Galneryus are all great. Coffins was pretty good but I haven't gotten around to listening to their stuff.

And to mention a name which hasn't been said yet, Concerto Moon is pretty cool.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

I thought they had Jap members...I may be confusing them with another band though...

Not a fan at all.

I love the GazettE <3
I didn't know 12012 were considered metal though, I've heard of them but I havn't actually heard them yet.

All the J-Metal I listen to that I can remember:
Abigail
Blood Stain Child
Intestine Baalism
Gallhammer
Sex MachineGuns
Circuit V. Panzer's solo stuff
Terror Squad

And Kadenzza, who is ****ing amazing. Into the Oriental Phantasma will own your face and your soul.

Oh yeah, I listen to Marty Friedman's solo stuff, does that count?

No mention of Sabbat? For shame. Although the English Sabbat are better...

Not to forget Abigail, Gorgon, Metalucifer...

goddamnit, japan fails then i dont know any jap bands other than sigh and dir en grey and DEG suck ass

Coffins,Anatomia, Funeral Moth,Gallhammer and King Goblin would be my favorites. Japan has amazing death/doom I also think that Japs growling sound so distinguished and way more brutal then most.

Jurassic Jade - Ryuketu Ningyou - that's where Slayer got the riff for South of Heaven from
