Best Slam Metal Bands

This is about all the best Slamming and guttural Bands that have been slamming.

The Top Ten

1 Katalepsy Katalepsy Katalepsy is a Russian slam death metal band from Moscow. They have released two split albums, one EP, two full length albums, and one demo. Katalepsy has established themselves as one of the most prominent acts in the Russian metal scene, and a popular band in the extreme metal underground.

With the songs like Carpet Wounding and Post Apocalyptic Segregation, this is one of the best bands not just in the slam category but also in the whole of metal, the co-ordination is just ORGASMIC!

Great band, love it.. And I hope someday I can make they are art for t-shirt design... Tani Art's

2 Devourment Devourment Devourment is an American brutal/slam death metal band from Dallas, Texas. Formed in 1995, the band has split up and reformed three times and Brad Fincher is the only original member.

Easily #1. They didn't actually create the genre (Vomit Remnants did), but Devourment perfected it. Molesting the Decapitated was an album ahead of its time, and both Ruben and Mike have some of the absolute filthiest, most brutal vocals. Every slam they do is original and catchy, and their blastbeats are miles above anyone else in speed and brutality. They also have possibly the goriest lyrics. Close 2nd place would be Abominable Putridity. - ThatStrangeKid42

Why isn't this band number 1 in the slam death metal ranks?

3 Abominable Putridity Abominable Putridity Abominable Putridity is a Russian slam death metal band formed originally from Moscow, formed in 2003. The band has released two albums; In the End of Human Existence and The Anomalies of Artificial Origin. They are one of the most popular brutal death metal bands to day. Abominable Putridity shares more.

This band is awesome! They get my vote for #1 - ryanrimmel

4 Kraanium Kraanium Kraanium is a Norwegian slam death metal band formed in 2001. Kraanium was founded by twin brothers Martin and Mats Funderud. Having played previously in hardcore and black metal projects together, the brothers seeked out for a heavier project.

Kraanium were one of the best slam bands ever in my opinion. What a pity Martin died...

5 Pathology Pathology Pathology is an American brutal/slam death metal band from San Diego, California, formed in 2006 by drummer Dave Astor (formerly of Cattle Decapitation and The Locust.) And vocalist Matti Way (also of Abominable Putridity.)

Listen to there Purification album, its one of the best out there.

6 Putrid Pile Putrid Pile Putrid Pile is an American brutal death metal band from Racine, Wisconsin, formed in 2000. Putrid Pile is a one man band.

Putrid pile isn't slam, just regular brutal death metal

12 Walking the Cadaver

It's Waking not walking - Mikbiter15

WtC is a very talented slam band with very unique vocals that will leave you on edge throughout the whole song. Love throwin down to Cadaver.

Not slam. They're deathcore. They just have slams instead of single-note breakdowns. Same goes for Acrania and Whoretopsy (although they're all great bands). - ThatStrangeKid42

13 Operation C*** Destroyer

They broke up, but they are by far my favorite slam band!

14 Ingested Ingested Ingested are a British slam death metal/deathcore band from Manchester. Since their formation in 2007, the group have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time and have built a large fanbase within their country as well as in the US, Australia, more.
15 Vulvodynia


Vulvodynia is the band that got me into slam metal and brutal death metal and they are awesome!

Vulvodynia kicks ass!

Vulvodynia is my favorite slam metal band and always wil be. Listen to their first EP called Lord of Plagues it is awesome and so is the rest of their music.

16 Acrania
17 Pathology Pathology Pathology is an American brutal/slam death metal band from San Diego, California, formed in 2006 by drummer Dave Astor (formerly of Cattle Decapitation and The Locust.) And vocalist Matti Way (also of Abominable Putridity.)

Pathology is on here twice - ryanrimmel

18 Visceral Disgorge

Dankest riffs bra

19 Extermination Dismemberment
20 Infant Annihilator Infant Annihilator

Even though they can't play their own music live, still one of the best bands I have ever heard

21 Analepsy Analepsy

Check out their songs Genetic Mutations and Eons In Vacuum if you've never heard them. They're a good band! - KoTaJfAc

22 Signs of the Swarm
23 Guttural Slug
24 Gore Obsessed
25 Disentomb Disentomb Disentomb are an Australian death metal band from Brisbane. They were founded soon after the disestablishment of Brisbane death metal act Cadaverine by three of its five members: Jordan Phillip, Henri Sison and Jake Wilkes formed Disentomb, together with bassist Tom Joice.
26 Party Cannon
27 Internal Bleeding

Internal Bleeding is without a doubt a major part of NY DeathSlam scene which along with Suffocation, Skinless, and Repudilation used to destroy venues in the 90's and still kill it today... This band has been through just about every adversity known to man and there so badass there still putting out new records.. So if I have anything to say since I've been in this scene for damn near 30 yrs and there would be no Devourment if it weren't for Internal Bleeding... That's a FACT... (R.I.P Bill Tolley)

Basically the Inventors of Slam - Mikbiter15

28 Within Destruction Within Destruction

True slam to the core...also their videos are amazing =)

29 Intestinal Alien Reflux

Kill all humans must kill all humans - KoTaJfAc

30 No One Gets Out Alive

I'm sure they have a spot. NxOxGxOxAx is the first slam death metal, death metal in general, band to feature bluegrass elements, which is extremely rare. Andreas's country/bluegrass influences grab him at adding a BANJO, which extreme metal has never noticed before.

31 Cadaverous Contingency

I love Cadaverous Contingency, they are two guys that broke out of Abated Mass of Flesh. Christian metal at its best!

32 Waking The Cadaver
33 Inherit Disease
34 Hamburger Head


35 Carnivorous Eyaculation

The top 3 songs by these guys in my opinion are 1. Bleeding Castration 2. Anomaly Amputation 3. Cerebral Executions
