Most Extreme Music Genres of All Time
The Top Ten
Still I don't get why people say that death is more extreme. Did cannibal corpse impale goats and pig heads during their concerts? Bestial black metal (which is actually different from blackened death) is way more extreme than brutal death metal. Even some normal black metal bands are heavier than cannibal corpse (marduk, deathcrush mayhem, dark funeral, infernal war etc...) - Anonymous1234
Very extreme, especially Mayhem, Darkthrone and Immortal songs. - GREYBOYY
Only those who perfect the Norway and Swedish Black Metal can only know how kvlt this music was.
Hail Satan -|-
Arch Enemy. All I gotta say for the lead vocalist, the solos, the drums, the speed and just the sheer fact that there are two women who can sound like they have balls that have dropped below their knee caps will make me accept how Death Metal is the most extreme genre of music.
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
Soundwise it is the most extreme music genre
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
most hardcore punk genre
Grindcore is violence.
This is more of a punk subgenre than a metal subgenre, and it's one of the heaviest genres out there.
Some punk genres are actually more heavier than some metal genres because of how raw and chaotic punk is (I of course am talking about the more hardcore stuff and not the melodic/poppy sounding stuff). So punk is ironically more heavy than heavy metal.
This is the most hardcore, and why is hard rock higher than this? Someone clearly is retarded to think that.
Kreator, Sodom and Slayer are the examples. - GREYBOYY
Really love this but it is REALLY extreme
Foo Fighters and System Of A Down are the most extreme examples of this genre. - GREYBOYY
Death metal + heavy metal + hardcore=heavy
The ugliest, loudest, scariest and most misanthropic and dissonant music (so brutal, it's not music, it's harsh hell sounds). The ultimate in terror. Why is this not number 1!?
This is a very extreme genre. Very distorted noise, extremely vulgar lyrics, and really loud
Black metal, death metal, thrash metal... it's all baby music compared to extratone.
How is this not number one - randyr
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.
Diabarha, Hynla, Awesa just a name a few
No competition - tommy123
one of the most extreme metal/punk geners
should be number 1
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
Many mathcore bands like Messhugah,Dillinger Escape Plan and Protest The Hero are really heavy
I am a metalhead,but hardcore techno beats every subgenre of metal..260+ BPM,I think that it says it all..and it is very dark music,filled with rage and power (except "happy hardcore")..give it a try.
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
I honestly don't know how this isn't number one
Extremely brutal especially K-Pop 😂
Nothing is more brutal and insane than a Komprex track.
What’s more extreme than 400-100000 brutal beats per minute? (Seriously aeswa made a 100,000 BPM song)
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
Could be higher to be honest - randyr
Think Skrillex (particularly Scatta). In my opinion, Brostep could be weaponised. - Winterush
