RaHoWa (alternatively RAHOWA or Rahowa) is a defunct Canadian White supremacist band that played goth metal with some elements of neo-classical metal. The band name is an abbreviation of Racial Holy War. They released two albums from 1993-1995. Many of the songs on their first album, which had a straight Oi!/hardcore sound, had explicitly racist and violent lyrics, but they adopted a more mature style of songwriting to go with the gothic sound on their second album.

They broke up in 1997 after George Burdi renounced Racialism and formed a new band called Novacosm. Burdi would return to Racialism in later years.

In 2017, an album of demo recordings from the RAHOWA-Novacosm transitional era called "Uberfolk" was released, which was not authorised by Burdi. This was instead the name of his new band, which released its debut album "Music for Nations" in 2019, featuring versions of some of the tracks on the Uberfolk bootleg album.

In 1995, RAHOWA contributed their cover of Skrewdriver's "The Snow Fell" to the Foundations Forum's official sampler for that year's forum and to a Milwaukee-based metal compilation. These are the group's only appearances on mainstream (non-WN) releases.
