I like listening to foreign metal, especially Japanese. I want more music like them, but I really don’t know how to find it.
I don’t think there is another band like Maximum the Hormone, but if you like Japanese metal, you can check out these bands (if you don’t already know them):
blood stained child
gaze of death
dir in gray
There is a follow up
sex machine guns
Man, I love the Japanese metal scene. Unfortunately, few bands in Japan are like MTH. Girugamesh, Deluhi and D’espairsRay are probably the closest.
there’s nothing like MTH, but some bands that I feel a similar vibe from are as follows (I also think it’s very likely that MTH is influenced by some of these bands)
System of a down (you already know this one, but I think it’s pretty obvious that MTH are big fans of it)
