United States doesn't run the world, especially musically, so that's the dumbest fucking thing you could post.

General rule is first release = release year.

I'm an American. I'm telling you. We don't.

P.S. I want to move to Norway, need a roommate?

I agree that the release year is the initial release rather than the US release. However, if we were to put together lists of the top bands by nation regardless of genre, we would need at least a top 200 for the US. Whereas, we would need only a top 20 or top 50 for most other nations.

Top 5 Nations (Population wise) of the World and how many metal bands per country (according to M-A):
1. China - 159
2. India - 112
3. United States - 17,257
4. Indonesia - 577
5. Brazil - 3,847

A couple notes...
1. The low numbers from other countries are probably from M-A being a primarily English speaking site.
2. Is music sung in English usually more popular than other languages? I want to say yes, but I don't know.
3. English is the most well-known language in the world so it makes sense that metal sung in English would be more popular. Just out of curiosity I looked up the status for the UK and they have 3,238 bands listed on M-A. Germany actually has more listed with 8,156, but Germany is pretty metal so...

Not a particularly active forum but you may as well go for it.

Just heard these guys' debut 2010 album, it's incredible.
Can people rec me some middle eastern folk metal in the same vein as Melechesh, Orphaned Land, Myrath and Aeternam? I suppose also similar to Arkan, Lykathea Aflame and Winterhorde as well. That whole sound works particularly well.

"The Power of Thy Sword" is such a kickass tune, one of Manowar's best pure power metal songs.

The low number in China is due to their totalitarian government. The low numbers for India and Indonesia is due to the fact that so many of their people are religious fanatics. You'd have to have balls of titanium to form a pop band in one of those nations. From a metal band and you could be facing prison time or a lynch mob.

And when it comes to the UK and Germany, I'd say the relevant number is kick@ss bands.
