Man…Metal Hammer is one of the best magazines on the planet and for them to really look out for bands, scenes from other places besides the US is much appreciated.
A couple days ago they put up this really cool article chronicling the Chinese black-metal scene. Super informative article that is worth your time to read through it especially if you want to know the history of metal in a country like China. Of course with any article that tries to do a quick summary of a certain scene or genre of music, they’re going to miss a lot of other bands that should be on this list. But the point is not to detail EVERY single band in China…this is to give you a little bit of an insight of how things work up there.
Enjoy – and BIG thanks to Metal Hammer for drafting, researching and publishing this article.
