Next to anime, my greatest interest is in music. Here is a list of my favorite Japanese bands

Cool no worries. This is great, I've been wanting to find some good Japanese metal - plodding through YT mainly, have listened to some Blood Stain Child. I liked that Volcano you linked and of the ones you listed Area 51 (liked the clean vocals), Lost Eden, Youthquake, Kadenzza, Shadow (chicks singing death vocals are always great haha) and Sigh all took my fancy. SSORC, Vomit Remnants and the vocals in Intestine Baalism were pretty full on haha.
But anyway, there's heaps there to get to so I'll take my time listening and checking out these bands so cheers!
Yeh, those death style vocals do get a bit same same after a while - I do like to mix it up a bit. But here's a band, Psychroptic, from my country that are pretty cool, thrash/death metal you might dig it :)
I have given Dream Theater's new album a good whirl - it's great, I particularly like the first track, probably my fave off the album so far I'd say!
Dude, I've just been checking out the list of Japanese bands on your page - they are awesome! Will have to spend time giving them a proper listen tomorrow, good stuff.
Cool, well hopefully you get into it - yeh they are more thrash/power metal (some cheese involved at times) but they do what they do really well. If you're keen for more Iced Earth I'd recommend checking out 'Framing Armageddon', 'Dark Saga', 'Horror Show' and 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' - these are defining and awesome IE albums (avoid their most recent 'The Crucible of Man' from 2008 for now, not their best work, but 'Dystopia' is true to their best form).
Actually their new singer Stu Block used to (I'm not sure if he's still working with them or not) sing for Into Eternity who are also really great. They are more on the extreme side, a mixture of black metal/power metal and his vocalwork is astounding, really cool stuff which may also be worth your while :)
Hey dude! Cheers, yeh I totally used the cover art from Iced Earth's new album as my avatar ^_^. Now it's out I may just have to change it, but I'll see what happens... I have listened to it and am waiting for a copy to arrive, it's definitely worth it. Really digging what they've done with this album. It's a return to form for them I think, the music is great and the sci-fi inspired theme is a nerd/metalhead dream come true. Favourite tracks so far are 'Dystopia' and 'Dark City' - great stuff. Check it out if/when you can!
I was the same before, i only watched actions till i watched cowboy bebop then i started to watch other ones and its been great^^ anyways thanks for the info on please teacher im definitely going to watch when im done with my other shows.
