    While I love the Gothenburg Death Metal scene, it's been sort of stale since the mid 90's. Nothing really new coming out of that area of the world.

    But it's influences are important. They used Scandinavian folk music to inspire their death/black metal roots. I've been searching for bands from other cultures who have dived into their ancestral roots to bring a different form of death/black metal. I really enjoy when modern bands incorporate traditional instruments and rhythms into their music.

    Here are some good ones:

    African Death Metal

    Asian Death Metal

    Samurai Metal

    I'm really fond of Pale Waves. Like many, I've found their latest album a bit washed up and bland in comparison to their initial singles, though I guess it's still a band developing their sound. Here's my absolute fave single of theirs:

    Japanese Breakfast is a band I've found much thanks to the wonders of the Spotify playlists. Also a recent Indie band, their music does have a very upbeat and enjoyable sound to it:

    Why not, here's a cover I've made a couple of years ago of this last track:

    Here's one last pick more like what the public here would consider Rock. I've found about Hozier thanks to a girl I've started to talk to some months ago. Sadly we've lost the contact ever since, but at least I've got some good music recommendations:
