All of the Heavy Metal Bands from Georgia (Updated: 2021)

Much of the credit in making this list goes to Encyclopedia Metallum: The Metal Archives and its exhaustive, crowdsourced documenting of heavy metal from around the world. For more information on the bands listed here, check out The Metal Archives’ Georgia page.

This list is compiled from a variety of sources, including MySpace, YouTube, Spotify, The Metal Archives, Bandcamp, and other social networking sites (i.e. Facebook). Bands are organized alphabetically and supplemented with relevant links.

For metal bands from the other two countries of the South Caucasus, check out my other articles: Azerbaijan and Armenia!

If bands are missing, links are broken, or information is incorrect — please let me know! I will update the article as more information comes. This list is a work in progress.

Enjoy!
