Does anyone have any non-American punk/general hard rock/metal bands you’d recommend? (Particularly from Asia, Africa, South America, or Southern Europe?)

I’m going to be DJing a radio show and I’d LOVE to expand my repertoire a bit.

This is also a good way to get your favorite bands out there, so please give me some suggestions!

(A bit more info: The show is called Global Cacophony. It features punk rock/hard rock/metal from all over the world! I'm SUPER excited. If you want I'll send you a link so you can listen live!)

@doomnaut: Exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, thank you!!!

@warlock360: NICE, thank you!!!

@joygirl: Pirate metal??!!! :O SWEEEET

@doomnaut: Viking metal is why we Americans don't think of the Scandanavians as total nerds. ;)

@judasnixon: You just have a ton of neat suggestions, don't you! :)

@doomnaut: Haha, I know Falconer. I often refer to them as the Non-Ironic Bird Band thanks to the Spirit of the Hawk song. I've got to check out X-Japan! :D

@decoyelite: Probably can't use it as an intro song, but I might be able to slip it into the show at some point.

@judasnixon: Awesome, thanks!

@samimista: Thank you!!!! I'm super excited.

@yourneighborhoodcomicgeek: It most certainly is.

@nelomaxwell:I will! Thanks!!
