Any fans of Death Metal here?

Maybe there may 1 or 2 of you? If you’re a fan of Death Metal, you should check out this new band MASADA with current/former members of IMMOLATION, GOREAPHOBIA, CRUCIFIER, RELLIK, + more. Two song demo of old school death metal available for free download at http://masada.bandcamp.com :o

I’m listening to INCANTATION’s Mortal Throne of Nazarene as I type these words, so, yes, one DM fan here. Not much into newer stuff in general, I might it give it a chance though.

Hah, okay, so there’s at least 1! :wink: Anyhow, I’m with you on the not liking the new stuff… Masada is comprised of mainly folks from the old days of DM and definitely doesn’t have that “new” sound.


(sartana1968) #4

death metal no, rock yes!


(scherpschutter) #5

One step too far for me

I love Tool, Deep Purple, Queensryche, Led Zeppelin


(Bad Lieutenant) #6

Big death metal fan. Just listened to Penetralia by Hypocrisy. Most Nuclear Blast stuff from that era was good; Monstrosity, Dismember, Benediction, Sinister, Gorefest etc.


(El Topo) #7

Not really

Always more on the speed, trash, punk, grindcore of life, and even so not that often these days

Go figure I’m listening to a Cocteau twins record lol


(Bill san Antonio) #8

Deicide is one of the bests for sure.


(Bad Lieutenant) #9

In terms of ferocity I like their Amon recordings best.

Tool is also a longtime favourite of mine…also early Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, the Melvins, Soundgarden and the Smashing Pumpkins. The only band I like that would come close to “Death Metal” would be Meshuggah.

I’m still surprised there’s more than 1 person who listens to Death Metal here, haha. I do like old thrash and such, but nothing tops the Death Metal from the late 80s - early 90s. Anyhow, that Masada stuff may bring back some memories if you’re into it!


(kit saginaw) #12

You’ll hafta define ‘death’ in-relation to amp-stacked zap-structure…


(SunsetUnlimited) #13

I listen to death metal, black metal, and other variations of “extreme metal”… was in a black/death metal band at one point. Nowadays I’ve moved onto rock–specifically spaghetti western influenced rock, haha.

I’m big into death metal but I mean quality death metal. I get excited over old stuff, I like 80s innovators like Death Strike (Master), Canadian Slaughter, demo era Death, Possessed, German Poison. To the 90s I really really REALLY love Finnish death metal, some Swedish though I think that sound is overrated, and also really scummy stuff like Impetigo. I like all the classics like Immolation, Deicide, Morbid Angel but don’t think these bands were good past a certain number of albums. Autopsy is probably my favorite dm band of all time but I’m so into the genre its impossible to say what my favorite is. I DO NOT like faceless overtly technical shit or gore grind or porn grind. New bands that use extremely long riffs to build monstrous catacomb epics like Cruciamentum, Grave Miasma, Mitochondrion, Father Befouled, Portal are really pushing the genre to new depths! Then I also like GOOD black metal, I actually play guitar in a black/death metal band.

The biggest downside to liking this music is outsiders assume it is the only thing you listen to, now in the 80s this stereotype was probably true but as I see it people who are obsessed with metal also happen to be the most seasoned and eclectic music fans you’ll run across. I like an ungodly shitload of music spanning various styles, decades n whatnot but this post is about death metal, I will defend this music to my grave!

and i am a fan of FEAR FACTORY ;D, or i used to be, nowadays i even don´t know if they still exists or what they are doing, hm, but always a great inspiration for me, i think it was called industrial metal or cybermetal - thing is i was a cyberpunker, mainly because i read William Gibson and such sort of science fiction and it had some connections those books and music
but i listened many bands, symfonic metal, speed metal, big Helloween fan, now i almost can´t say names of those bands, i just don´t remember, pretty long time ago it was

Nothing else matters


(ION BRITTON) #17

Well, I could easily name 100 bands I couldn’t live without right now. Narrowing it to 4-5 bands only is totally asphyxiating :wink:


(scherpschutter) #18

I was joking, I also love Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Dream Theater, Jacques Brel, Morricone, Janis Ian, Branduardi, Paolo Conte, Ede Staal, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Boudewijn de Groot and many others

Here’s the Dutch bard Ede Staal (no Death Metal):

not to mention porn grind- nooo, just little afternoon joke - what the fuck is porn grind? i have some foggy memories that someone explained it to me but i wanted to forget :’( maybe Gringo! knows :wink:

Neil Young is something for me too, and Nick Cave, one of great aspects of Proposition is his music and script, that´s why i love the movie (and because Pearce is one hell of actor)


(scherpschutter) #20

Like Nick Cave too, Murder Ballads is one of my favorite albums

Any good bands from your country? Most famous Dutch rock band is still Golden Earring, I guess. Tom Barman is number one in Belgium, no doubt (Toots Thielemans is also from Belgium, btw)
