Best Grindcore BandsAvAtArA Hatred, frustration, political intolerance, and medical terminology are what Grindcore is all about.
The Top Ten
Bill Steer of Carcass was apart of this
Best grindcore band ever...
Most intense live band I've ever seen! - ThatStrangeKid42
Absolutely the best no contest.2 Comments
I like carcass and their first two albums are grindcore but everything afterwards is melodic death metal
Grindcore at its best. The angry vocals, Steer's brilliance on guitar. Why on earth is carcass so underrated?
Listen to Reek of Putrefaction and you will know what is the definition of Grindcore. - Nord666
Carcass much better then napalm. Especially when they lost steer and he went to carcass.4 Comments
One of the best out there. There vocalist Travis Ryan can do pretty much anything and they have amazing technical instrumentalists.
One of the greatest bands eve, the intensity and the vocals just everything is brilliant
Cattle Decapitation is most certainly one of my favorites.
I'm a huge Cattle Decapitation fan, but they aren't grindcore. They are Deathgrind, (yes there is a difference) But most people consider them to be just Death Metal - ryanrimmel5 Comments
Everyone is talking about Prowler in the Yard (amazing album), but let's not forget about Terrifyer which is just as good, if not better in some cases in my opinion - cjWriter1997
This is the first grindcore band I really got into. Prowler in The Yard is a superb album and the others do not disappoint. Any grindcore fan should look into this bands work. Also Brutal Truth should be ranked higher. At least in the top 10.
This band is great for their genre, but one thing I noticed is on their Prowler in the Yard album the song Starbelly that has parts that sound a lot like the Melvin's song Boris (which was made way before starbelly). You might think I'm being unjust since the Melvins and Pig Destroyer sound nothing alike, but if you listen to the middle of the song starbelly and then listen to boris then you'll notice that they sound almost exactly alike. I'm beginning to wonder if Pig Destroyer stole the part from boris (if they did, that would be bad because bands should be original and not rip off other artists. If they did it but asked first, then it would be okay. If they didn't, then it wouldn't matter.)
Prowler In The Yard is a record that proved Grindcore as a genre which can tell a twisted, engaging story while still maintaining musical brutality and unrelenting energy.4 Comments
Aggression, speed, rage, heaviness that what is Grindcore and that is all about Terrorizer. World Downfall is the greatest Grindcore record ever made.
Should be at the runner-up just below Napalm Death.
I love this band
Should be under Napalm Death.
Awesome band and the
commando is king
Amazing band. Every grind fan should listen to their self-titled debut and Dissimulate! - AvAtArA
Such a funny band but very crazy and intense.
They are the most creative grindcore band without a doubt
Way better than napalm death, these guys have pure talent! - bigmike137
Anal C is the all time heaviest band ever. There 5643 song ep cannot be topped. Absolute pure noise. Beautiful in every aspect.
I went back in time and voted for Hitler is easily the greatest lyrical achievement since anything by GG Allin5 Comments
For me is in the top 3 grindcore bands Napalm Death and Carcass are top 2 but after them I would put Brutal Truth
Extreme conditions rules! Enough said.
Best American grindcore bend.
Brutal truth is death metal not grindcore1 Comment
Gold from texas
This is black metal
Great band though
One of the most unique Grindcore bands ever. Mix a nice dose of Black Metal (which I usually dislike) and Industrial into their Grindcore mix which creates a crushing yet hooky sound with dangerous grooves and haunting melodies. They should at least be in the Top 5.
1 - Napalm Death
2 - Cattle Decapitation
3 - Pig Destroyer
4 - Anaal Nathrakh
Carcass, as much as they completely rule, generally sounds more straight up Death/Melodeath to me.
Aborted is great they are amazing expecially the Extirpation Agenda
These amazing band
try in Engineering the Dead
and Strychnin.213 Albums
the Greater Grindcore
This is Number one grindcore
One of the underrated ones. These masked Mexican musicians really know how to rock
Rotten Sound should at least be in the top ten.
They can bring great riffs, great bass guitar, great solos, great voice an still being one of the heavyes bands of all time. Albums like "Cursed" and EPs like "Napalm", or "Consume to Contaminate" are some of the best grindcore works of all time.
Best band that plays Grindcore.
Wow why are these guys not higher on the list? One of the best.
Arguably they're deathgrind, but if we're going to include deathgrind into grindcore, these guys are EASILY top 5 material. Like Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage has a surprising and creative take on the deathgrind formula. Where Cattle Decapitation experiments more with vocal techniques, Cephalic Carnage has a great and variative vocalist as well (though slightly less creative as Cattle Decapitation's Travis Ryan) but experiments more with interjecting ambient sounds from jazz, surf rock and flamenco or at set times using jazz fusion licks into their unique and trippy brand of deathgrind without ever seeming ridiculous. These unique elements, combined with the fact that they manage to stay as brutal as grind gets throughout, makes them far more interesting than straighforward peers such as Terrorizer, The Berzerker, Nasum or Anal C*nt.
Should be top 5: 1) Napalm Death 2) Carcass 3) Cattle Decapitation 4) Pig Destroyer 5) Cephalic Carnage. And while Carcass is an excellent ...more
Sick fast and loud
The greatest Modern Grindcore band ever and one of the greatest Modern Metal bands.
Should be number 1
Best grind ever.
They are the best because is real grindcore, raw and pure
Most Violent Singing Parrot!
They are awesome and their music style is also very innovative... I want them to see at least at no. 5.
By the way Brutal Truth also should be ranked higher. - Nord666
Death grind at its best nothing else
Awesome band, misery index is their best releases ever...by the way why is Sayyadina was not voted?
They're awesome! The cover of their album "carnivorous erection" is the the gorest ever.
They are pornogrind but are a really good band
Don't let the name fool you, this band is absolutely insane! - ThatoneMetalhead
The best song from them in my opinion is murderer - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
Their 1st grindcore album was sick! I'm not saying they are the best grindcore band... But one of the best... They currently changed direction to death metal/deathcore... - nooreldeen
Have any of you heard a song off The Sin and Doom of Godless Men? It's really hard to believe something that harsh came from a Christian band
I love them. They're so fast paced that they fired their drummer when he couldn't keep up. So they replaced him with a drum machine
Italian grind is a total different thing.
Cripple Bastards are easly the best grindcore band of all time.
Gory grind with a punk mentality. Highly recommended.
They are the best underground Grind/Mincecore band ever! After 30 Years still that great and ass-kicking!
#1, what are all of you doing!?
One of the most diverse bands around.
Though the vocals are not, the instrumentals are grind paced and I think these guys kick any other grimy low quality bands ass
Seth Putnam was wrong about a lot of things, but he was right about you? - xEliHbkx
Why is this band not even on here?! These guys are epic!
Their self-titled LP is definitely a must listen for grindcore fans. - cjWriter1997
Not a Grindcore band!
This band should be number 1 they are awesome and so brutal with lots of shreds my favorite band ever
Deathgind molto bravi e tosti
Okay... this is the worst band I have ever heard. Their timing is terrible, and so is their vocalist. - ThatoneMetalhead
Great crustgrind band
Love these guys. Put them in the top 5 - ryanrimmel
They honestly have much more meaningful lyrics than Dream Theater.
One of my favorite bands
They did good as a grindcoee band. They're old demos are grindcoee and they sound really raw and brutal. Look up the songs Candyman and Thomas The Tank Engine. Stupid titles but awesome songs. - MetalFoREVer1228
The best grindcore band, and also the best French band ever!
