Welcome to Japanese Metal Wiki!
This wiki will be a comprehensive guide to Japan's metal and hard rock bands, regardless of popularity or era. To be used along with our forums.
Since this wiki is fairly recent, expect to see further updates over time. In the meantime, check out some of these bands' articles (for every article posted so far: )!
Mostly a traditional metal fan getting into Japanese metal? Loudness, Anthem, Bow Wow, Earthshaker, Sabbrabells, Show-Ya, Ezo, and Nokemono are good ones to start off with. More melodic stuff like Terra Rosa, Hellen, Hurry Scuary, X-Ray, Flower Travellin' Band, Wolf, Blizard, Ebony Eyes, Action!, Misako Honjoh, and 44 Magnum might be up your alley.
