Most Extreme Music Genres of All Time

GREYBOYY

The Top Ten

1 Death Metal

The tempo changes, deep growls, heavily distorted low-tuned guitars and it's fastest genre in the world. - GREYBOYY

I don't know why but I get goosebumps only by hearing its name. I'm happy with only Thrash Metal. Other forms of Metal are a completely no-no! - Kiteretsunu

There's no way that Thrash Metal could be heavier or more extremer than Death Metal, have you been living under a rock? - GREYBOYY

2 Black Metal

Very extreme, especially Mayhem, Darkthrone and Immortal songs. - GREYBOYY

3 Grindcore

This is the most extreme genre which can be at least considered as music, or it's subgenre - goregrind because of the low tuned guitar, often blast beat drumming and, of course, harsh, sick and bizzare vocal

4 Hard Rock Hard Rock Hard Rock is a subgenre of rock music known for having heavier guitar riffs/solos. It originated around 1964-1965 with various Garage Rock bands.

Foo Fighters and System Of A Down are the most extreme examples of this genre. - GREYBOYY

5 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression. The songs usually use fast percussive beats and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work.The genre evolved in the early 1980s from combining the fast drum beats ...read more.

Kreator, Sodom and Slayer are the examples. - GREYBOYY

This is the most hardcore, and why is hard rock higher than this? Someone clearly is retarded to think that.

6 Technical Death Metal (Tech-Death or Progressive Death Metal)
7 Groove Metal
8 Metalcore

Really love this but it is REALLY extreme

9 Gothic Metal

Evanescence, not only this band is Dark Metal but also is heavier than alll Gothic Metal bands, remember that heaviness is different with violence, also they make their guitar sounds heavier, just like Doom Metal bands, meanwhile, they're extreme. - GREYBOYY

This genre is extreme and symphonic. With death- and doom metal roots, there's no way this can't be #1

10 Hardcore Techno

Also knows as gabber,this is THE most extreme genre and only reason it isn't on top is the exposure of this genre is much less compared to the ones in top 10. the most extreme sub-genres of hardcore are terrorcore,speedcore and extratone which range from massive bass-backed kicks from 200 BPM to 300 BPM coupled with agressive (sometimes satanic) vocals for first two. personally extratone is beyond me, its too extreme. here are some examples : Tripped - Pure Hate (300 BPM), Noisekick - Just Statin (260 BPM0, Drokz - This ain't No Disco (probably 200 BPM). the kicks and basses in these tracks shatter walls lads

The Newcomers

? Extratone

The fastest genre in the world. A sub-genre of speedcore. BPM ia always 1000+. Many people say that it doesn't sound like music, because the tempo is so fast that it sounds like a single tone, thus the name: extratone.

The Contenders

11 Nu Metal

Slipknot, Linin Park, fast, violent mixed with death growls and groove metal thick voice, these things are enough to describe how much extreme this genre is. - GREYBOYY

15 Drum & Bass
