I would to know your opinnion about latin american bands ... and all the metal scene in South and Central America ... I know that's such smaller in comparison with European or American metal scene ... but we have here really good bands like
Renacer (Argentina), Rata Blanca (Argentina), V8 (Argentina), Weichafe (Chile), Six Magics (Chile), Brujeria (Mexico)... I don't know .. what do you know in the rest of the world ?? ... seeing that in the data base of MS you can't find too much.
There are many latin american heavy metal bands......but as large as I can observe in my country there is a strong underground scene that remains unknow for most people..
When people hear heavy metal they often say: this is good......Thefore Reggaeton is still the most popular musical genre.. and metal bands remain undereground and unsigned.
Tren Loco, Heavy Metal in the style of the NWOBHM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pSVyRKTiRw
Mastifal: Started as a Thrash band, moved to Death on their second album, Melodeath on their third, and the fourth album is a mix of Death Metal, Groove Metal, Metalcore and even Rock. Amazing and creative band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_jMFDssrMs This song also has a Tango intro and outro.
Tungsteno: Old School Thrash band with goofy lyrics about alcohol and moshing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YymDqumKqus

Serpentor: Thrash band http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfphwyoosl8
Overall Centeral and South america have been pretty big sized metal grounds so give it more time and they should all be flying high too. I just got my hands on a few bands recently and they're all damn decant.
I also gotta say inquisition is one of the best things to come out of that part of the world!!!!
Brazilian Bands like Sarcofago, Vulcano, and the almighty Sepultura were important in the development of black metal. Mortem, from Peru, has to be THE most underrated Dm band of all time. So many great albums that go unnoticed...
What about this bands? (from my country Costa Rica)

Brazil has one of my favorite thrash scenes \m/
I can honestly say that I have only heard maybe one thrash band from there that I didn't like..
I also enjoy some heavy metal from Argentina like V8 or Rata Blanca. As for the rest of South America I am not too familiar with the bands.
Well the metal scene here in mexico is pretty good, although they arent to popular so thats why most bands are never heard of, anyways i've been to acouple of black metal concerts here and its not bad, not bad at all, and its not just black metal, there are a couple of good thrash bands among others, if you guys wanna you can search for,
