Most Brutal Dubstep Artists

The Top Ten
1 Skrillex Skrillex is an American (Born in 1988, in Los Angeles, California) EDM producer who is known for popularizing dubstep. He is part of the bands Jack Ü (DJ) and From First To Last (Lead Singer). His album Recess debuted at 4 on the BB200, tying him with Zedd for the highest debut for an EDM album on ...read more.

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, Scary monsters and Nice Sprites... Does any more need to be said?

Best among all producer...

2 Excision

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 artists with his songs. There's absolutely no way beating Excision...

Excision is much more brutal than Skrillex. Skrillex has Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites while Excison has X-Rated, Deviance, Sexism and so many more and they all sound good!

I love Skrillex but his style changed a lot. He isn't as brutal as he used to be so I'd have to go with Excision.

Listen to x rated

3 Xtrullor

Xtrullor should easily be #1. His dubstep 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 this powerful robotic alien mafunction noise which will genuinely blow your mind. And 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 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.

Most dubstep is brutal. Some of it is intense enough to be X-rated. But Xtrullor? That's a whole new level of insanity.

Nobody can make things more extreme than this, only Lockyn, Dex Arson and maybe Skrillex have ever come somewhat close. NR 1 ALL DAY!

4 Datsik

I've been listening dubstep for a long time. Best dubstepper is Skream in my opinion but most brutal? Datsik for sure. Excision is much like meh and Skrillex is so overrated :<

5 Zomboy
6 Knife Party Knife Party are an Australian electronic music duo comprising Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, two members of the drum and bass band Pendulum.

A friend showed to me knife party. at first I don't liked it but when I listened carefully I loved him

7 Ephixa

He is amazing, the bass in his songs are insane.

8 Peer Van Mladen Peer van Mladen (born May 3, 1989 in Belgrade, Republic of Serbia) has more than 8 million dollars in annual revenue and one of the most influential music producers.
9 Noisia
10 Ajapai
The Contenders
11 Flux Pavillion
12 Deadmau5
13 NightKilla

All of his songs make me want to buy earplugs - in a good way of course!

14 Rusko
15 Dex Arson
16 Panda Eyes
17 Dubsidia
18 Eptic
19 D Jahsta

He's not well known, but his tracks are some of the filthiest dub I've ever heard

20 Ry Legit
21 Devin Martin

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.

This list is just based on fame instead of how brutal their music actually is.

22 Code:Pandorum

Should really be in the top ten.

23 Fester

Fester has so many heavy songs that are insanely heavy, his most unheavy songs are probably heavier than any song by 90% of the artists on this list.
(You could argue Kretery is heavier but I think Fester has more songs that have a super heavy beat)
