Topic: death metal thread

Some more recent stuff I've been enjoying.

Excoriate - On Pestilent Winds
Dead Congregation - Graves of the Archangels (genuinely the best death metal band about just now in my opinion)
Perversor - Demon Metal EP

What have YOU been listening to?

Any post-2000 recommendations would be cool too.

Re: death metal thread

I enjoy watching Suffocation vids because of this thing Frank Mullen does with his hand.
e.g. 0:11-0:12 of this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6nrglujp1U

Hopefully this won't descend into what does or doesn't constitute being in a certain genre.

Mullen is a pure sausage.

This will probably be the extent of exposure a lot of younger hardcore folks will allow themselves to death metal because of the person involved. It's good, but it's not great. In fairness, the DFJ guy drummed on a Funebrarum record, which those kids probably completely ignored, and which is a far better record. B9 kids are probably due to start forming "death metal"  side bands as a direct result of Innumerable Forms any minute now.

Re: death metal thread

what jamie meant to say was:

drowned - viscera terrae
grave miasma - exalted emanation
cruciamentum - demo
claws - absorbed in the nethervoid
pseudogod - triumphant serpent magni
nominon - monumentomb
swallowed - 7"

Re: death metal thread

pretty much. and the new  Interment, Blood Revolt (it's death metal, I don't care what the vocals sound like) and Witchrist records.

I happen to really like that whole Boston mind eraser/rival mob/free spirit/new lows scene and just found out about them through that. Not really bothered if that makes me unkvlt or not. I'll check out funebrarum for sure!

Re: death metal thread

yeah, but the real question is are you going to check out any death metal bands that don't have people from hardcore bands in them, or would you have done so if you hadn't heard the IF record?

I couldn't give a fuck about your "kvltness", so don't throw that excuse at me. I'm just trying to work out are you interested in this kind of music genuinely, or just because some guy you like is dabbling in it?

Re: death metal thread

And so it begins!

I have heard good things about Diocletian, on an Irish label right Jamie?

Re: death metal thread

Yep, Invictus, which run by my friend Darragh, who also is putting out the BR and Witchrist releases I mentioned. New Diocletian coming later this year too. Great stuff.

Vassafor from New Zealand are really good too.

I'm more into thrash metal to be honest, but I like a lot of the classic old school death metal bands. In fact the ripping corpse LP is one of my favourite albums of any genre. I wouldn't say I was a scholar or anything though.

Fair enough, question answered. And  that Ripping Corpse is superb.


Okay, I'm in full nerd flow right now:

In terms of demo bands, the stuff Skeleton Plague puts out is great - particularly like Grave Ritual, Bural Invocation, Decapitation, and Mortuous. Also, Grave Ritual and Aethyrvore from Australia are both really good. Bone Sickness and Mutant Supremacy sound promising if a little cheesy.
Nocturnal Blood is good, enjoyed the demo and split lp with Sanguis Imperium.

The Encoffination tape is good, I look the more doom/death approach they take, and in a similar vein I'm keen to hear more by Anhedonist and Ominosity.
In terms of European bands, Gravehammer and Miasmal both have great 7"s out on Detest. Ascended, Krypts and Stench of Decay are excellent too. I think most of those were co-releases with a UK label whose name escapes me, guy shares office space with Paco I believe.

I'm still trying to decide wether I like Morbus Chron or not, but I think a lot of folks here will. Ditto Lamentation, also from Sweden


Bands I think really need to be taken more note of at the moment are Antediluvian, Mitochondrian and Stargazer. Personal favourites right now are Grave Miasma and Slaughter Strike.

I'd avoid anything that says "Upsalla Death Metal". It's generally rubbish.

Re: death metal thread

bone sickness were pretty good live the other week, although i've not heard any recordings. seemed like nice chaps, too.
and encoffination's hilariously hard to read logo (with the only other place the name's on the tape being similarly unreadable in a totally different font) kept me entertained for a good few minutes not too long ago.

Are you talking about Mitochondrion from Vancouver? If so, I hope they've gotten better in the last half a year or so because when I got their first CD a few years back it was terrible, and I saw them live in September and it was the same thing. I would certainly not recommend them to anyone. Maybe it's time for me to check them out again if they're good now.

Re: death metal thread

had a listen to that Mind Eraser blokes band and it's pretty decent. 'Dance Floor Justin' makes him sound like a bit of a muppet though. For more hc/death metal crossover action check out Funebrarum. They're singer used to sing for Citizens Arrest. they're a quality death metal band to boot.

the Cruciamentum demo is incredible. quite astonishing that the UK can produce a death metal as good as that. a diamond in a sea of gravity blast/tech/chug shit.

Diskord from Norway are great. another Jamie recommendation.

Re: death metal thread

although it doesn't fit in with the 'old school' death metal that's getting recommended I have to mention Direwolf. one of the guys from Behold The Arctopus doing a solo thing. bit like Cynic doing a Hammers of Misfortune style concept album about weird sci fi stuff. also "the power to understand the language of the elephants and use it to my advantage" is one of the greatest lyrics of all time.

Re: death metal thread

i don't think Innumerable Forms are bad at all, though there's only really one song on the 7" that stands out to me. And i think Justin is genuine in his love of death metal, any bullshit bridge nine death metal that may or may not (and in all honesty probably won't) occur can't really be blamed on him.

Besides aren't all the kids still to busy being all over Cursed's dick which badly translates into poetry and Wolverine Blues (the beginning of the end in my opinion, actually, screw that, turning 19 was probably Entombed's end) for death metal?

and as an antidote to Ewan's post above which sounds like it'd be the worst fucking garbage imaginable here's a local unknown i like:
