I love the German style. Rage with their power/speed blend are among my all-time favorites.

Recntly found this underground hidden gem. It's progressive thrash metal, somewhat unique back in 90's I belive. I may upload the album and post it here, later.

You guys are all experts of the old stuff, so I´d like to introduce some "new" bands from the last decade.

Asking my database the best 'latest' German Metal release is (sad but true) an obscure band you never heard of.
Furthermore this one is not only the best 'recent' German album - but in my mind the best ever. - So here´s…
Germany: Alchera (Ger) - Era (2011)
Took them about 15 years to record their first regular full-length (and even longer for me to discover it) - but it turned out to be a milestone:
Straight-forward melodic Death Metal provided in a monstrous wall of sound (yes! 3 guitars do their work here) - amazing, but incredibly underrated.


Though Eluveitie also release excellent albums from their very begining, my favorite 'new' Swiss release is pretty clear.
Switzerland: Abinchova (Che) - Versteckte Pfade (2011)
Melodic Death/Folk Metal in swiss dialect, very enjoyable (except for the coverart).


Asking me about Austria, the decision is pretty hard as there are too many (imo), so I choose the most surprising release within the last 10 years:
Austria: Drescher (Aut) - Erntezeit (2014)
Actually no newcomers, but veterans forming a new band playing 80s thrash with accordeon.
Love them for their realistic nuts-and-bolts lyrics (in austrian dialect - so probably not for the masses).

But you might also check out the new albums by Bifröst, Senntus, Nonexistence, Flammensturm or Gasmac Gilmore (which I introduced earlier).

Just my humble opinion to 'Germanic' metal… ;)
