I've only heard of one of these bands, but will definitely check out the others.

I remember a TV clip featuring an acid metal band from Ghana or somewhere like that. (Cameroon?) And that was  +35 years ago. Back when Hakeem Olajuwon was first getting known he complained about American perceptions of Africa. Lagos, he said, had 4 music video channels.

Not metal, but Ngozi Family laughs in your general direction from the 1970s.

One of the coolest things about that scene is the way fans and musicians try to "out-metal" each other in creative ways.  One guy put a motorcycle on top of the archway leading to his house.

Are there any Cradle of Filth-inspired Afrikaans metal dudes who've moved to the States to pursue metal glory? Would they be White Black Metal African-Americans?

Alien weaponry and shepherds reign are both very good bands if you want some Maori and Polynesian inspired metal. The hu for Mongolian metal, bloodywood for Indian folk metal. There's heaps out there.

Tengger Cavalry would be my Mongolian pick, though I enjoy The Hu as well. TC will regrettably not be releasing anything new, though, so The Hu definitely have the edge there.

Pop and Miracle Whip: [YouTube video: Songhoy Blues - Worry (Official Music Video)]

From Mali, Africa.

I love Songhoy Blues. Their first record is a hell of an introduction into the Desert Blues sound from Mali.

Ignore him. He's a gatekeeper of what is and isn't metal. Thinks his opinion matters.

I suppose nothing, if you're too stupid to know how to use the search function on metal archives

THIS.


Arka'n Asrafokor - Afropolitan Nomad Festival 7th edition!
Youtube FU8mtGuff3o


Is the best modern metal show I've seen on YouTube. And yes, rap & metal can work together when done right.

/Book looks interesting, but not $100 Interesting.

He's the real-life "stop liking what I don't like" kid, only less mature.

Note to self to look into this more later.  I've heard metal from most continents, just not Africa or Antarctica.

Well, the native population of one of those continents might have a bit of a tough time on the guitar, what with the lack of fingers and all.

Nope, I don't give two shiats about what you like.

I do however despise that this site is full of people who go around
Thinking it's OK to call potato chips a hamburger is ok because you think both taste good and that's commonality enough.

But those are the type of idiots who end up writing articles like TFAz as if metal from Africa is new.
