Vietnamese Metal?

I am finishing up a class on Vietnam history and it got me curious if there was a Vietnam metal scene, and from there I found the Saigon documentary about the small local scene but I’m having trouble finding more groups/Spotify profiles for any of these groups (if they even exist) since that’s what I use.

We now have link flair!

Just as the title says -- we now have link flair. These, as in r/metal, correspond to the genre of music being posted. It's still recommended (though not required) that you add your own information about the country of origin and what traditional elements are involved to the title of your post.

Please remember to flair what you're posting with the correct genre. However, if you're unsure of the genre, do not flair what you're posting. If what you're posting is a crossover genre (ie black/death), then you can either pick the flair that you think is most representative, or you can add that information to the title yourself.

Happy listening!
