I don't doubt his interest in death metal is real at all, and as I said I don't think it's an awful record, but I think it's not as great as is being made out to be is all.

Direwolf is hilarious. It sounds like Cynic soundtracking Battle of the Planets. I like the best about "mastering the language of the elephants". I'd never in a million years call it death metal though.I feel the same way about the whole technical/widdly dm as I do about "brutal" death metal - I have no interest in it generally but there's, like any other genre I suppose, the odd exception I can get behind. Direwolf isn't really it though.

Adversarial are really good, looking forward to the album.

got enough of a Cynic/Nocturnus feel that i thought it was worth a mention. plus I enjoyed Andy's reaction.

listened to Coffin Texts on the way back from work today. nice semi-early Carcass feel.

Portal and related stuff is great too (Vasaeleth/Impetuous Ritual). seem to have a bit of 'hype' but who cares.

for the classics it's mainly been Dismember and Bolt Thrower the past few months. Bolt Thrower live was top. shame about the ropey support bands.

Maybe they're more on the tech widdly-widdly side of things, but I saw Gorod tonight and they were fucking spectacular.

Re: death metal thread

Re: death metal thread

How insightful, Carl.

Gorod are alright for what they are, I think. Shame that guys who know how to play want to play that sort of twiddly wank though!

I can't get over how good Grave's 'Into The Grave' is. So heavy, so crushing. I've been listening to Carcass' 'Heartwork' a lot the last two or three days too. Essentials, like. A Swedish band called Harassed have a rad demo called 'Desire of Exploring the Afterlife". Check it out if you like it heavy!

"Soulside Journey" is an excellent record, one of my favourites ever. I really like "Goatlord" as well which is in that vein.

Sentenced's "North From Here" should be on your list if you like either of those two as well actually. Very underrated album, and their first one ("Shadows from the Past") is a bit of a lost gem as well.

"Heartwork" still sucks.

Oh man, I remember hearing Sentenced on some metal magazine CD samplers when I was a kid and they were playing bad melodic crap so I always forgot to check their earlier discography. Will do soon.

And I also really love "Soulside Journey." I think it's very overlooked because most people know Darkthrone for the next three records they released after that one but man, yeah, amazing death metal album for sure.

More power to me.

Re: death metal thread

Goatlord is Amazing! I brought the Frostland tapes boxset a few months ago which has the Goatlord sessions minus the vocals which surprisingly sounds great on its own. It is very odd how technical Soulside Journey And Goatlord Is in comparison to the black metal stuff which followed. I only wish they made a couple more albums in this style before going all grim and that.

B9 kids are probably due to start forming "death metal"  side bands as a direct result of Innumerable Forms any minute now.

I disagree 100%. I think Innumerable Forms are the absolute embodiment of the kind of death metal I fell in love with - dark, fuzzy, atmospheric, bass heavy 90's Suomi-style (i.e., the early stuff of Abhorrence, Disgrace and Demigod). For me at least they hit the spot far more than the admittedly excellent Funebrarum.

For my money it is the most crushing death metal record of all time. It's well worth checking out all of their pre-album stuff too, which have a slightly nastier, thrashier feel (although they are nowhere near as heavy).

It is also worth hearing the pre-Grave projects; the Putrefaction 'Painful Death' demo ('89) and especially the Corpse 'Black Dawn' demo ('86), which is awesome thrashy death metal.

Also, if you dig this dark, bass-heavy sound then check out this Miasma tune (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkZy6gywfIE) and also this Mutilator tune from their 'Grave Desecration' demo '86 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1De8T5C … aynext=1).

played a show with him/ them on the weekend and it was great stuff. Look out for future releases not being on a Painkiller side label and on a more traditional metal label

absolutely, shame the come back LP wasn't up to much. Pabluki's current band Blasphemic Cruelty fill my Angel Corpse needs quite nicely

Re: death metal thread

I've got a couple Slaughter Strike LPs if anyone wants one. It is well good.

Get a Mammoth Grinder LP / 7" while you're at it.

Autopsy were pretty unique in their grinding, sludgy, atmospheric horribleness, but the following contain some (in some cases, most) of these elements:

Dr. Shrinker - 'Wedding the Grotesque' demo
Rottrevore - 'Copulation of the Virtuous and Vicious' EP
Gorefest - both demos (avoid the albums though)
Paradise Lost - Frozen Illusion demo
Necrovore - Divus De Mortuus demo
Pungent Stench - Split with Disharmonic Orchestra
