Top 10 Metal Bands From Luxembourg

With less than 2,600 sq. Kilometers of land mass, the nation of Luxembourg is no geographic giant. In fact, with respect, it's basically the Ronnie James Dio of the European Union. But like Dio, it packs a serious punch. 2 reasons: first, its famed bank secrecy rules have made it a favorite among wealthy people looking to stash their cash, making Luxembourg a big player in world finance. And second? By our calculations it has one of the highest per-capita number of metal bands in the world. Luxembourg -- population less than 500,000 -- has no less than 10 metal bands you should hear. These bands are the real deal -- and you can take that to the bank. Today we pick the top 10 metal bands from Luxembourg.
