Most Brutal Death Metal Bands

Nord666
This is a list of Death Metal bands based on their brutal sounds, heavy guitar riffs, harsh guttural vocals and deep death growls.

The Top Ten

1 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988. The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: ...read more.

They are the gods of brutality. I don't want to hear any bull about cannibal corpse being "mainstream." They are not even close to being mainstream. If they were mainstream they would be mention in the same sentence as popular pop acts, but they're not. Cannibal corpse is more popular than probably any other death metal band ever, but that doesn't make them mainstream because death metal is underground to being with. Some people might try to pretend they are mainstream to make them less brutal, but even if they were it wouldn't make them any less brutal, just more popular. They are the heaviest, most brutal death metal band of all time.

Keep on make a most number 1 in death metal music history. Get on hammer smashed.. Haha

You are number 1 and you always will be

Very mellow band compared to newer bands like Origin and Portal. Very mainstream and Hammer Smashed Face was even featured in Ace Ventura's Pet Detective movie. Not sure why it's number one here!

2 Nile Nile Nile is an American technical death metal band from Greenville, South Carolina, United States, formed in 1993. Their music and lyrics are inspired by Ancient Egyptian/Near Eastern mysticism, history, religion, and ancient art, as well as the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

For me no one like Nile. Brutal, but different than other Death Metal bands. They creates great atmosphere... Like ancient tomb

They do brutality right. When they're fast it rips your face off. When they're slow it feels like the hammer of the gods on your spine. Absolute best Brutal Death Metal.

Still as technically brutal as ever in 2016. Caught them in London this week and the show was outstanding! Great atmospheric death metal, neck break speed and flawless.

Nile is a band that may not be what people immediately think of when they think brutal death metal, but they have some of the fastest and most brutal songs out there.

3 Behemoth Behemoth Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground.

One of my favorites in this genre of music the guitars kicks you in the ass and the songs are well composes and produced cool choice of lyrics and and singing style awesome choice for songs they just keep getting better every album they sound so good live they crush the competition they are metal gods in this genre all hail mighty behemoth

Behemoth's demigod and evangelion make cannibal corpse's butchered at birth and tomb of the mutilated sound like a boy band so much brutality in behemoth

What... Behemoth On 13... It must be on top man... Come on... Where you'll find more devilry in songs... And each time I listen their music... Gives me chills... Wo... Like a horror movie...

They are scum but they are good

4 Devourment Devourment Devourment is an American brutal/slam death metal band from Dallas, Texas. Formed in 1995, the band has split up and reformed three times and Brad Fincher is the only original member.

If this is a list on BRUTAL death a which is a different genera then death metal and devourment helped create it and get it better known with the amazing albums molesting the decapitated and butcher the weak so these bands that are just death metal shouldn't be on a list of brutal death bands.

How is this not at the top? Most brutal band I've ever heard.

This band is FAR more brutal than Bloodbath, Nile and Cryptopsy. They're not even that guttural compared to this guy's growls. These guys are WAY heavier. Plus, just look them up on iTunes and compare the song names and lyrics to the other bands. There's no comparison. "Babykiller" and "Molesting the Decapitated" by Devourment make "Eaten" by Bloodbath look and sound like a lullaby.

Butcher the Weak is maximum grotesque brutality. Rape, murder, eat... any order's satisfactory to Devourment's lyrics. I prefer Devourment over Cannibal Corpse when I need a Brutal Death Metal fix.

Behemoth is my favorite band, but for this list it should be near the bottom. Behemoth is more mythological and epic, than disgusting & violent - hence its label 'blackened-death'. Devourment IS the most BRUTAL death metal band; it's on the top of this list.

5 Bloodbath Bloodbath Bloodbath is a Swedish death metal supergroup from Stockholm, formed in 1998. The band has released four full-length albums, two EPs and two DVDs depicting their performances at Wacken Open Air and Bloodstock Open Air.

BLOODBATH this band is just like the name of it BRUTAL the most brutal band ever with those guitars bass and drums it not done the main reason for BLOODBATHs brutality is the vocalist named MIKAEL AKERFELDT this guy is the best growler ever his voice is awesome brutal and with lyrics brutality is seen, from songs like EATEN, SOUL EVISERATION, SO YOU DIE and much more BLOODBATH deserves to be number 1 on this list...

I love Bloodbath. They are indeed brutal, but definitely not the most brutal. - Flav

My absolute favorite band. Bloodbath have a dark ambiance mixed with good and heavy groove. Taking from bands like entombed and dismember. I wish these guys would come across north america, sadly they seem to only play in the Netherlands.

Has the best growls and vocals

Mikael Akerfeldt did it all... in combination with the sheer evil melodies and virtuoso drummer - they're easily the bost brutal sound wise and the scariest as well - soundwise.

6 Cryptopsy Cryptopsy Cryptopsy is a Canadian technical death metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 1988. The band has sold over 300,000 records.

"None so vile" is maybe the best brutal death metal album ever!

One of Cryptopsy's earliest albums, Blasphemy Made Flesh, is extremely loud, fast as hell, and downright heavy and insane, and that was just when they first started! They're other albums continue to amaze with incredible sound and brutality. These guys will never dissapoint if you're in the mood for the slams!

Blasphemy Made Flesh and None So Vile are hands down two of the best Death Metal albums ever recorded. A true showcase of the severity of the Canadian Metal scene.

The first two álbums are bruuuta

7 Dying Fetus Dying Fetus Dying Fetus is an American death metal band originally from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Formed in 1991, the group is known for their consistently hook-laden song structures, characterized by blast beats, complex riffing, slam riffs and heavy breakdowns.

Dying Fetus brings technical death metal into brutality cannot compete with cannibal corpse but definitely a close second in my opinion has the crazy lyrics, wild ass sweep arpeggios, and still those caveman riffs all together creating dying fetus cannot wait for there new album, gonna be hard for them to follow up reign supreme but they managed with purification through violence still my favorite album theyve made

Brutal As all HELL, just go listen to Subjected To a Beating.

Maybe the biggest influence on brutal death metal besides, cannibal and suffocation. Should be ranked much higher

This band is so amazing just like their brutal but awesome name I would listen to them all the time

8 Suffocation Suffocation Suffocation is an American technical death metal band that was formed in 1988 in Centereach, Long Island, New York, United States.

I had been constantly in the search of some serious brutality until I came across this band, and I knew I had struck gold. I mean its not that CC is not good enough, but I personally favour Suffocation

Suffocation, great death metal band, their first album was genius, same with a lot of their others.

Should be #1, or at least higher than Cannibal Corpse. Cannibal Corpse is very overrated.

Number 8? are you joking. Suffocation crushes and has been for more than 25 years despite numerous lineup changes. Band deserves more respect and has earned the top spot

9 Deicide Deicide Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987 by bassist and vocalist Glen Benton and drummer Steve Asheim. They are known for their blasphemous and satanic lyrics which have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticisms from religious groups and the public. Frontman Glen Benton is also known for ...read more.

Brutal, blasphemous and satanic. That right there should say it all. Guttoral vocals and super fast tremolo guitarwork... Going strong for twenty five years as of 2013. Soldiering past bans and extreme controversy and censoring while laughing at it all the way... What's NOT to like?

Are you kidding me. Deicide should be there in top 3 at least.

I love Deicide and think they are heavier than cannibal corpse which happens to be my second favorite band.

I'm a long gone Deicide song on vinyl.

10 Decapitated Decapitated Decapitated is a Polish technical death metal band formed in Krosno in 1996. The group comprises guitarist, founder and composer Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka, vocalist Rafał Piotrowski, bassist Paweł Pasek, and drummer Michał Łysejko.

Day 69 is full of collateral bloody damage, CC is what everyone says and they're the Nickelback of death metal (too generic, sold out).

This band records their music in hell, death and gore - Odinest

One best metal band

They are often considered the fathers or founders of the djent metal sub genre due to their use of downtuned guitars. They are also known for their song “Bleed”, which is known for its extremely complicated instrumentation, ...read more.

Meshuggah aren't really death metal, but they're still one of the heaviest and most brutal bands ever. Their song Corridor of Chameleons will make you want to smash everything in the same room

Dude Meshuggah is the most brutal out there! Should be on top!

One of the heaviest bands out there, but they aren't Death Metal. The vocalist doesn't use death growls. I'd call them Progressive Groove Metal/Djent - ryanrimmel

Yeah stfu this is best band

12 Death Death Death was an American death metal band formed in 1983 by Chuck Schuldiner. Death is considered to be one of the most influential bands in heavy metal and a pioneering force in death metal. Its debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, has been widely regarded as the first death metal record, while the band's ...read more.

Hate those bands who try to much I love the pure brutal death when they just wrote the lyrics and don t care about anything else, but Death s first 3 albums are pure Death and better and more brutal than most of the bands, not the most brutal but definitely top 5, plus the greatest band ever in my opinion at least - Deako

Who ever said the genre is named after death needs to do some research. Agreed death is amazing but this is also a list for brutal and death isn't really brutal

It's really sad to see Death here at this position. It should be at number 1. Chuck deserves more than this.. He was a true musician and a real gentleman in all aspects. The band is not active anymore for obvious reasons, but human, symbolic are perhaps that takes death metal to a whole new level of song writing and musicianship. It is not a coincidence that Chuck is not with us anymore..greatness usually comes at a great price..

Heavy, but not brutal. - Merkwurdigliebe

13 Brain Drill Brain Drill Brain Drill is an American technical death metal band formed in 2005 from Ben Lomond, California. They are signed to Metal Blade Records and released their full-length debut album entitled Apocalyptic Feasting on February 5, 2008. In support of their debut, disagreements were engaged and members began ...read more.

I think some of the comments and votes are based on or too greatly influenced by people's favorite band(s) instead of the question at hand which is "who is the most brutal? " Although what is more brutal to one wouldn't be to another. There are several bands on this list I like better than Brain Drill, though I think Brain Drill are by far the most brutal. They are savagely intense, loud, insanely fast, super technical and spastically aggressive. There might be a few bands that come close but not quite touch them and whilst not being a whole new level up in the genera they have definitely raised the bar some.

What are they even? I can't wrap my head around their riffs. They all sound like solos except the bass is playing the exact same thing! They are completely insane.

Good Cybergrind

14 Vader Vader Vader is a Polish death metal band from Olsztyn. Formed in 1983, the group was founded by then-bassist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek and guitarist Zbigniew "Vika" Wróblewski.

15 Whitechapel Whitechapel Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper.

It's deathcore, not death metal. Still amazing!

Listen through somatic defilement and then tell me they don't belong on this list.

There are two kinds of people, those who love whitechapel and those who never listened to deathcore

Their 2006 demos were perfect, with beautifully violent lyrics

Much of their music is based ...read more.

Pure demonic bile for humankind. Their recent albums (The Harvest Floor, Monolith Of Inhumanity, The Anthropocene Extinction) are apocalyptically heavy. Dangerously fast and insanely technical, they are more than just a vegetarian grind core; they are black metal, progressive metal, death metal, tech death, and overall, they are brutal!

Nothing is more brutal than it!

A very very very heavy band, enough said

Should be top 5 not for everyone but this band is ingenious the lyrics unique, not just a bunch of nonsense actual thought put into the art,

18 Six Feet Under Six Feet Under Six Feet Under is an American death metal band from Tampa, Florida, formed in 1993. The band consist of four members: founding vocalist Chris Barnes, longtime guitarist Steve Swanson, current bassist Jeff Hughell and recent drummer Marco Pitruzzella.

I feel that 'the Bleeding' and 'Maximum Violence', are my 2 most memorable death metal albums, of al time. Chris Barnes just provides something that strikes a nerve, with me.

Best death metal band overall. Each album is consistently bone crushing good. No bad albums. Yet!

A gateway band for many metalheads who are looking into entering the passages of death metal. Maximum violence did the trick to me when I was a teenager...Chris Barnes needs his due credit, come what may

Sick band

Good band, especially their 2006 album Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead.

Dude check these guys out- if you've never heard them, you don't know what brutal is.

Most Brutal Songs!

I have yet to find any bands more brutal or violent than them. I mean come on, all of their songs are about raping woman and babies. What's more brutal than that?

Most bone crushing, heart stopping, completely insane death metal band I can find. These guys set a new standard for the whole metal genre. If you havnt heard about or listened to this band yet you are missing out!

They have the most brutal drummer I've ever seen, if you're a metal head definitely check out the song crusher.

I'm pretty sure its either

Very underrated band. As far as straight up, crushing musicianship and brutality, they are my go to.

Incredibly underrated. A consistent and relentless death metal band. Honour, Valor, and Pride!

Underrated but amazing! Listen to All That Remains, that's easily one of their best.

Honestly the most brutal thing to come out of britain, which is basically the origin of all metal with Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Iron Maiden... And of course the most brutal band of all...BOLT THROWER!

31 Aeon

A real good death metal band from Sweden

They're amazing but I wouldn't say brutal enough to be top 10.

*&$(*&#@)! @* WHO PUT AURTHOHIN ON HERE AND VOTED FOR THEM? It's not even death metal in the slightest sense! They're a Bangladeshi hard rock band, and they have no qualities that are even remotely similar to any death metal. Certainly they don't belong above Amon Amarth.

32 Carcass Carcass Carcass are a British extreme metal band from Liverpool, who formed in 1985 and disbanded in 1995. A reformation was enacted in 2007 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen, due to health reasons.

Goddamnit! Needs to be higher

They ate someone how were they not already on here!

Mayhem is a pure Black Metal band, though the Deathcrush EP was influenced by "Death and Napalm Death" and Death worship lyrics but it was still Black Metal. - GREYBOYY

I think they're black metal, but still agree they are awesome! I miss it when Dead was on vocals though

34 Katalepsy Katalepsy Katalepsy is a Russian slam death metal band from Moscow. They have released two split albums, one EP, two full length albums, and one demo. Katalepsy has established themselves as one of the most prominent acts in the Russian metal scene, and a popular band in the extreme metal underground.

I like both their albums but I got to say katalepsy needs top 10 and guttural secrete should be on the list like what are they?

The heaviest band ever

It must be at number 1

Listen to

Gore conspiracy

And

Cold flesh citadel

Their two newest albums are the HEAVIEST thing I have EVER heard. Cannibal corpse is EXTREMELY heavy, but even THEY are not THIS HEAVY! - elves23

36 Malevolent Creation Malevolent Creation Malevolent Creation is an American death metal band formed in Buffalo, New York in 1987. The band’s original members were vocalist Brett Hoffmann, guitarists Phil Fasciana and Jeff Juskiewicz, bassist Jason Blachowicz, and drummer Mark Simpson.

They're so damn evil! I love their ways of expressing murder. It makes me want to tear someone limb from limb with my bare hands while looking at their face knowing their demise has come. Their breakdowns are just as amazing! They have the longest held screams I've heard in all of death metal! They're my #1!

The band comprises vocalist John Tardy, drummer Donald Tardy, guitarist ...read more.

Obituary made death metal slow, heavy, and damgerous. Before, death metal was fast paced and crazy, but the charm that Obituary brought to the death metal family makes them one of the top death metal bands of all time. The doomy, heavy, looming, punishing riffs do death metal the justice it deserves. Without these guys, death metal would just be thrash metal with growling. Slowly We Rot is an influential album and a masterpiece, front to back.

38 Extermination Dismemberment

This is the pure definition of brutal. Growling guttural vocals and almost minute long insane bass drops. Simply amazing slam.

That is my favorite slam brutal death band

39 Aborted Aborted

That's the must for aggressive and speed death metal, all the brutal death metal is here!

Hey man, bloody hard list haha! They are all unique, but I love BDM and all things heavy! Great stuff

I thought this was a most Brutal list. How can Defeated Sanity be behind Cannibal Corpse or Bloodbath? And where is Abysmal Torment on this list?

This band literally lives to make brutal music. I expected them to be number one, to be honest.

Defeated Sanity is god-like brutal they have always been on Their game and each album is heavy, diabolical

Brilliant, Fast and Brutal. One of the most insane bands created on this planet.

42 Thy Art Is Murder Thy Art Is Murder

Thy Art Is Murder isn't even a brutal death metal band, they're deathcore. Shouldn't technically be here.

Try and imagine an Australian version of Whitechapel yup that's Thy Art is Murder for ya

Also, Thy Art is Murder is way better and more brutal than Whitechapel

Thy Art Is Murder is completely deathcore.

44 Deeds of Flesh Deeds of Flesh Deeds of Flesh is a four-piece death metal band from Los Osos, California, U.S. They were formed in 1993 by Jacoby Kingston, Erik Lindmark and Joey Heaslet and are still active.

Because they have one good song. Recycled trash by old men who can't give up as they have no other choice. Tragedy really.

This British band is grindcore, not brutal death metal.

And not Death Metal? Split hairs much? Back in my day there were only a few genres, now it's gone crazy. You kids don't know shiz!
