    Just to be clear, these are the most popular metal bands from each country, according to worldwide listening stats, correct?

      Yeah. I agree it’s fairly confusing. Seems to be the most listened to band from each country according to Spotify.

        So in other words, nothing you’d be able to find on Encyclopaedia Metallum (unless they also got classified as some genre without “core” in it)

        Edit: just joking. Mostly. I am still pretty salty about the fact that their gatekeeping is denying Every Time I Die their rightful place among the metal greats

            Looked up the site and it seems like they also don’t have Between the Buried and Me or Protest the Hero so it seems like it’s one of those “exclusionary to be pretentious and no other reason” kind of sites

              They’re great at finding new bands as long as the bands are properly “metal,” but they arbitrarily exclude any genre that includes the term “core” which seems like a miss to me.

                They have a pretty narrow definition of metal I don’t always agree with (like cocktail and ball torture missing), but I’m sure glad it’s not flooded with -core bands.

        Xavleg (zav-leg) is the accepted “short” name for when you need to say it out loud or write it and can’t be bothered to put the whole thing

        The whole thing is an abbreviation for a bunch of gross shit with X’s on the front and end.

            English speakers most often use a Z sound for an X at the start of the word, like xenon and xylophone. I’m ignorant of how it would be pronounced by speakers of other languages, but all my conversations about the band (all three of them, lol) have been in English

      There are a few surprises here, tbf. I had no idea that Pentagram was Turkish (although, maybe it’s a different Pentagram). I kinda remembered that Sepultra that was Brazilian, but I’m not really a fan, so I had mostly forgotten.

        Benighted has always been my favorite franchement band, above Gojira. Living in Lyon, I see Julien (the leader & singer) at nearly every gig that happens in that city.

          Super, moi je parlais de Manu le gratteux. Le mec était déjà un génie dans notre petit groupe de pre-ados/ados, tu lui mettais une track il l’écoutait une fois et ensuite on la remettait et il jouais pratiquement nickel avec le morceau, un monstre.

            N’étant pas musicien, j’ai jamais compris comment c’était possible ce genre de choses. Mais c’est sûr que ce ne sont pas des manchots, leur batteur est excellent aussi par exemple. Et nouvel album dans 2 semaines !!!

              Je n’écoute plus trop de métal mais j’irai regarder ça.

    Genuinely surprised to see that Eluveitie beats out Celtic Frost.

    Edit: Just looked at the stats, and wow, it’s not even close: 872,935 to 120,157. That’s a real wtf. Insert Principal Skinner "…it’s the children who are wrong."jpg

      Click the HD button in the top right but even that won’t help you spell South Africa’s favourite metal band.

        Here we go "“XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX (abbreviated as Xavleg, aka Acidic Vaginal Liquid Explosion Generated By Mass Amounts Of Filthy Fecal Fisting And Sadistic Septic Syphilic Sodomy Inside The Infected Maggot Infested Womb Of A Molested Nun Dying Under The Roof Of A Burning Church While A Priest Watches And Ejaculates In Immense Perverse Pleasure Over His First Fresh Fetus) is a South African deathcore/ Christian music/ deathgrind/ death metal band.

          Fucking THANK YOU! I’ve been wondering what the abbreviation was for since some dude offhandedly mentioned it in a comment above. I didn’t want to have to figure out how to google all that lol.

          Side note, however:

          Sadistic Septic Syphilic Sodomy Inside The Infected Maggot Infested Womb Of A Molested Nun Dying Under The Roof Of A Burning Church While A Priest Watches And Ejaculates In Immense Perverse Pleasure Over His First Fresh Fetus

          Christian music

          Its members rarely consider themselves Christians

          I am now even more confused.

      This needs a per capita, otherwise just another map of population or Spotify Accounts

        It’s the number of views for each bands (as it is one band per country). It’s not a map population of Spotify accounts, otherwise you would see Mexico in much darker green for instance (and Australia less dark)
