Top 10 Most Brutal Dubstep ArtistsNot all dubstep is created equal. Some artists specialize in creating music that is dark, intense, and downright brutal, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with electronic music. From bone-crushing bass drops to mind-bending soundscapes, these artists are the ones that make your heart race and your head spin.
Skrillex is what brought me to dubstep. I wouldn't exactly call him a role model, but I believe he's the rightful king of dubstep and doesn't deserve so many haters. As far as brutality goes, Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites... Does any more need to be said?
The first artist that welcomed me to the world of dubstep is Skrillex. But the first artist that welcomed me to the world of brutal dubstep is Excision. And I have to be honest, Excision is way more brutal than any other artist with his songs. There's absolutely no way to beat Excision.
Excision is much more brutal than Skrillex. Skrillex has Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, while Excision has X-Rated, Deviance, Sexism, and so many more, and they all sound good!
I love Skrillex, but his style has changed a lot. He isn't as brutal as he used to be, so I'd have to go with Excision.
Xtrullor should easily be ranked #1. His dubstep music is extremely emotional, but I'm not here to talk about the emotion. I'm here to talk about how brutal and extreme it is. His drops mainly use a powerful robotic alien malfunction noise which will genuinely blow your mind. Most of his songs sound like he is breaking or attacking something. This isn't just the typical "wub wub wub" sound. No, I'm talking about mental stuff here. When I first heard Xtrullor, I thought my washing machine was breaking (that's a good thing).
If you consider voting for Skrillex, please listen to Ego Death, Corrosive and Cry first. Then, assuming your brain still functions properly, think again.
Nobody can make things more extreme than this. Only Lockyn, Dex Arson, and maybe Skrillex have ever come somewhat close. Number one all day!
Most dubstep is brutal. Some of it is intense enough to be X-rated. But Xtrullor? That's a whole new level of insanity.
I've been listening to dubstep for a long time. The best dubstepper, in my opinion, is Skream, but the most brutal? Datsik, for sure. Excision is much like meh, and Skrillex is so overrated.
A friend showed me Knife Party. At first, I didn't like it, but when I listened carefully, I loved them.
He is amazing! The bass in his songs is insane.
All of his songs make me want to buy earplugs - in a good way of course!
He's not well-known, but his tracks are some of the filthiest dub I've ever heard.
Skrillex #1? Seriously? I know, it's a generic name for a DJ, but Devin Martin makes the most brutal dubstep tracks ever. Go check out his track Mad Maestro and compare that to any Skrillex or Excision song you've heard. Also, go check out FESTER & Punishment - Pain. That track is the most brutal in the world.
Literally anyone from Crowsnest, Plague Born, or Abducted Records beats every other artist on this list several times over in terms of brutality.
Should really be in the top ten.
