If you haven't heard of these prodigies then welcome to the new wave of brutal death which doesn't suck balls (NWBDWDSB).

I seem to always enjoy the instrumentation more than the vocals with this sort of stuff.

I'd lump this into slam before brutal death metal.

I'm a slight genre autist but I skipped ahead a bit and listened to like 3 minutes straight of nothing but palm muted riffs so I'd have to call it slamming brutal death metal and not the kind I particularly enjoy.

I have a few bands to drop but slam death is one of those niche things in death metal that for a lot of people sounds pretty much like shitty deathcore. Would like a slam general thread be cool?

I actually feel the other way around, that deathcore is shitty and slam is..uh...unshitty deathcore.

Some "slam" I would consider deathcore, yes



I might be a genre autist but I like the term "slamming brutal death metal" to describe artists of the style I actually think are good like Myocardial Infarction, Disconformity, etc.

There's some good slam; I never minded playing shows with slam bands. It gets me to dance more than it gets me to headbang, though.

This guy is actually saying "ree". That takes balls, even for deathcore.

Deathcore seems to be characterized by bass dependant chugging riffs, guttural vocals, and lengthy breakdowns with interspersed pinch squeals.

I remember the first deathcore bands, they started in a trickle with Suicide Silence and then in a wave with shit like Tony Danzy Tapdance Extravaganza and Dancefloor massacre and other names with the word dance in them and then began taking on names that were obvious in their core influence, usually with four words and trying to evoke something epic.

Most of these first deathcore bands HATED being called out as unrelated to death metal, they wanted to be called death metal, but they just didn't get that to be metal means more than just to down tune your heavy riffing and grunt.

I feel that slam actually does deserve the name death metal, as an official category subgenre. Even if is obviously the result of deathcore somewhere in its timeline actually realizing what it was that made them so un-metal and fixing the problem.

This we agree on, I believe. HERE is the point I'm aiming at. Slam has more in common with brutal death than it does with deathcore, even if the deathcore obsession with heaviness is irritatingly over the top.

This, but in my opinion it came from taking grind-and-groove-type writing to the extreme in both directions, so you get hyper grinds and doom-tempoed grooves, and by grooves I'm not talking about breakdowns... that would make it death core.

Slam is absolutely in the death metal camp.
