Swiss National Day

The first of August, my wonderful mofos. Here's some Swiss bands to waste your time in a meaningful and constructive way (which is why I'm not including any shitty metalcore).
1Celtic Frost

First things first, amirite? Legends
2Apollyon Sun

Not really into industrial metal, but Tom G. Fischer can't do no wrong.
Melana Chasmata

I swear I won't include any more bands in which Fischer has been in.
Ceremony Of Opposites

Band went full apeshit after this record, but this and Blood Ritual are good.
5The Young Gods
Everybody Knows

Semi-legendary industrial band. They became famous after David Bowie cited them as an influence. They've been doing a lot of folktronica as of late. Check out "Knock on Wood" as well, it's great.
This band is the reason why I started university in Fribourg, I wanted to see them, which eventually happened.
Dark Space III

I lived in Bern for a couple of years. This excellent band from Bern reminds me of that time.
Lip Service

The Swiss are somehow convinced that this band is more famous abroad than in Switzerland, which is not (and yet, most Swiss have never heard of Celtic Frost). Sadly, the singer died in an accident, he was a cool dude, me and my friends used to see him at the grocery store sometimes.

A surprisingly awesome band from my area, they play a very synthy tech death.
9The Vad Vuc
Disco Orario

If you come from central Europe, chances are that you speak a minority language or dialect which is understood only by a handful of people. If that's the case, you'll know the feeling of hearing a song in that language or dialect, it just warms your heart. Their violinist represented Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest a couple of years ago.

As I said, no shitty metalcore in this list. This is quality stuff.

Amazing album, have it on vinyl... 3 x 180g LP, very heavy in more than one sense. Singer is kind of a pretentious prick but the music is top notch.
Movin' On

Great prog from the seventies. No electric guitars, no keyboards, very bass-centric (multi-layered bass tracks)
13Island (CH)

More 70s prog, low carb VdGG.

Even more 70s prog. Band from my home town, one of the members now owns a record store and he got me into some cool bands back in the day.
15Final Step
Uncle Joe’s Space Mill

Fusion, the saxophonist taught a good friend of mine how to play sax.

Technical thrash. Not my cup of tea but remarkable nontheless.
