Metal really is a universal language. Very Happy

I believe the Botswana band "Overthrust" (who are mentioned several times in the captions to these pix) played at one of the European metal festivals this past summer.

This isn't exactly a new thing though - pictures of the Botswanan metal scene have been doing the rounds for a good few years now, and every so often an article like this emerges.

These are probably the three most active bands.

Skinflint:



Wrust:



Overthrust:



Botswana doesn't have that many metal bands. although it's one of the least densely populated countries in the world so might not do too badly per capita.  The African countries with the biggest metal scenes would probably be South Africa, Tunisia and Egypt.

That was kind of cool, and it really shows the universal aspects of Heavy Metal culture.

Keep it Metal headbanger

Here's some more on the metal scene in Africa (South Africa specifically) courtesy of Sam Dunn. It only scratches the surface, but it's something at least.
