Top Ten Fastest Death Metal/Grindcore Bands

ThatStrangeKid42
This is a list of death metal and grindcore bands with the fastest music!

Here's what's NOT allowed:
- Deathcore (so, for example, no Infant Annihilator)*
- Black metal
- Things you KNOW are not death metal! (Slayer)
Those bands are just examples of fast bands, but that do not belong on this list. You will know better!

DO include:
- All subgenres of death metal: technical, brutal, melodic, slam, prog, all of it except deathcore!
- Grindcore, goregrind, deathgrind, or whatever silly grind subgenre you could think of.
- "Blackened" death metal is okay. In fact, Behemoth is already on the list!

*I know tech-deathcore bands are kinda on the line, like Rings of Saturn, The Faceless, etc. Those ARE okay to include.
