Just as the title refers, I would like to know about some heavy metal bands, from all subgenres, that feature typical arabic and eastern asian instruments on their music. I usually prefer it with clean vocals, but i'm fine with harsh ones as well. I'll give you some examples of what I'm looking for:

Bands with this style of music that I like, to avoid repetitions:
Spoiler: show
Narjahanam, Orphaned Land, Melechesh, Darkestrah, Sechem, Myrath, Arcana XXII, Bloody Tyrant, Tengger Cavalry, Onmyou-za, Song of Chu, Tamerlan Empire, Gonin-ish, Kokumaromilk, Seeds of Iblis, Arkan, Al-Namrood

Hard to believe you still haven't come in contact with Tengger Cavalry, which is pretty much the best of them, they are pretty serious about their heritage and their social media is full of horse riding and Mongol weaponry, and so on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHNzJCB05vs

Persefone has an album dedicated to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnRo5dMu6aw

Edenbridge makes good use of Eastern sounds in their music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_5ksvK0TYo

Raventale incorporates Vedic chants in one of their albums which is a fusion with traditional Indian music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHLYkHYWxZ0
