The Contenders: Page 3

41 Defeated Sanity Defeated Sanity Defeated Sanity is a German technical death metal band from Dachsbach, Bavaria, that was formed in 1994, originally as a side project of guitarist Wolfgang Teske and his son, drummer Lille Gruber.

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.

Never been a big fan of the drum machine but as far as guitar tone I have never heard a band with heavier sounding guitars than Mortician.

43 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.

44 Vulvectomy

Sickening gore to match the likes of the groundbreaking bands that brought guttural and slam to the mouths of metal heads everywhere. Fans of disgorge (mex) devourment and visceral trail already know what others will soon learn. They brimg to light issuez that face humanity like incontinence, Youll never look at a vagina the same

While none of its original members remain in the group, the lineup of vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway, bassist Shane Embury, guitarist Mitch Harris and drummer Danny Herrera has remained consistent more.

How are they not on here? Should be top 3 easily

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

Awesome best grind band ever, no one is capable of taking their throne!

This British band is grindcore, not brutal death metal.
