Australian/NZ metal

Nazxul is pretty good. "Iconoclast" was one of the better black metal albums of the last 5 years. At least a B/B+.

Ignivomous isn't really worth the effort. Superior work by Cruciamentum, Decrepitaph or Dead Congregation already exists.

Let me second D666, Bestial Warlust, SadEx, Vomitor, Spear of Longinus, and Midnight Odyssey. Each has work which is B-grade or higher.
No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

Dead Can Dance alone cements Australia as having contributed quality music to the world.

Not to diminish either Dead Can Dance or the wonderful nation of Australia, but DCD are about as Australian as the Bee Gees.

Lisa Gerrard is entirely Australian, and Brendan Perry moved there (from what I understand) early in life. Furthermore, their particular musical pursuits were due in large part to the (Australian) climate in which they met and developed musical ideas. So, in light of that: how do you mean? And more importantly, why does it matter?
