Top 10 Best Slam Death Metal Bands

This is about all the best Slamming and guttural Bands that have been slamming.
The Top Ten
1 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.

The true creators of slam. They took the original brutal death metal style and tweaked it into the rhythm-focused, guttural sound that was their own back in their day, and today is heard on every other band on this list. Abominable Putridity, Ingested, Kraanium...all great bands who would NOT exist without Devourment. 'Molesting the Decapitated' and 'Butcher the Weak' are easily the two greatest slam albums ever made. And every band who followed them is doing exactly what Devourment started, but still not close to the extreme brutality and depravity of these slam-gods. Devourment are one of the few metal bands who truly created an entire subgenre single-handedly, and there's no denying that they are one of the most influential and important extreme metal bands of all time.

Devourment is no question the ones that really put death slam together in a nice groovy, very catchy, brutal way that was sick and still is today... Even though going through there own internal issues back during the early days but managed to keep the Devourment going and that's badass... What can I say that hasn't already been said positively about Devourment... There the Death Slam Masters and should be the undisputed #1 Death Metal Slam Band ever...

Easily #1. They didn't actually create the genre (Vomit Remnants did), but Devourment perfected it. Molesting the Decapitated was an album ahead of its time, and both Ruben and Mike have some of the absolute filthiest, most brutal vocals. Every slam they do is original and catchy, and their blastbeats are miles above anyone else in speed and brutality. They also have possibly the goriest lyrics. Close 2nd place would be Abominable Putridity.

The original and the best. Other bands are great, but they are largely Devourment done in a different way. Molesting the Decapitated blew everyone away when it came out, and they have continued to release amazing albums since their classic MtD. I'd like to shout out Butcher the Weak and Obscene Majesty as their other two best albums.

2 Abominable Putridity Abominable Putridity is a Russian slam death metal band formed originally from Moscow, formed in 2003. The band has released two albums; In the End of Human Existence and The Anomalies of Artificial Origin. They are one of the most popular brutal death metal bands to day. Abominable Putridity shares the same vocalist as fellow slam death metal band Pathology (Matti Way.)

Abominable Putridity are amazing! These guys really know how to make some awesome Slam Death Metal!

These Russians know what real Slam Death Metal isM/. Much respect from Sweden.

Indisputably the best band, amazing gutturals and great tone.

This band is awesome! They get my vote for #1

3 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.

With the songs like Carpet Wounding and Post Apocalyptic Segregation, this is one of the best bands not just in the slam category but also in the whole of metal, the co-ordination is just ORGASMIC!

Great band, love it.. And I hope someday I can make they are art for t-shirt design... Tani Art's

4 Extermination Dismemberment

Made Slam more brutal with their breakdowns, vocals, and of course the BASS DROPS! I recommend Omnivore and Disemboweled Engorgement.

The bass drops are very heavy. Definitely check them out if you haven't listened to them yet.

This band is insane! For me they are the best

Some great bass drops. Pretty heavy stuff.

5 Kraanium Kraanium is a Norwegian slam death metal band formed in 2001. Kraanium was founded by twin brothers Martin and Mats Funderud. Having played previously in hardcore and black metal projects together, the brothers seeked out for a heavier project.

Kraanium were one of the best slam bands ever in my opinion. What a pity Martin died...

6 Ingested Ingested are a British slam death metal/deathcore band from Manchester. Since their formation in 2007, the group have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time and have built a large fanbase within their country as well as in the US, Australia, Canada and Sweden.

These guys are awesome. They deserve the respect.

Filthy and brutally disgusting!

My absolute favorite band!

One of my top 5 bands in general.

7 Pathology Pathology is an American brutal/slam death metal band from San Diego, California, formed in 2006 by drummer Dave Astor (formerly of Cattle Decapitation and The Locust.) And vocalist Matti Way (also of Abominable Putridity.)

Simply incredible! They can be incredibly brutal even without being as morbid as other slam bands. They were especially great when they were fronted by Jonathon Huber.

Listen to there Purification album, its one of the best out there.

8 Acranius Acranius is a German slam death metal band from Rostock, formed in 2009. The band shows elements of beatdown hardcore, crafting their own signature sound.

Find something heavier than Armathine Redolance

14 Walking the Cadaver

WtC is a very talented slam band with very unique vocals that will leave you on edge throughout the whole song. Love throwin down to Cadaver.

15 Vulvectomy

Brutal and wonderful

16 Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia is the best Brutal Slam Band I've ever heard. Their vocals are amazing and how they present their lyrics is also great. They do a great job and are very nice to their fans. They called my little brother awesome because he was wearing my Finis Omnium Ignorantium hat.

Best slams band in my opinion. The lyrics are amazingly wild and the instrumentals are great as well. Honestly it's one of the only slam bands where I find their songs to be catchy. I hear one song and it's stuck in my head the rest of the day

I'm Rick Harrison and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, Big Hoss, and in 23 years I've learned one thing. You never know what is gonna come through that door.

Vulvodynia is my favorite slam metal band and always wil be. Listen to their first EP called Lord of Plagues it is awesome and so is the rest of their music.

17 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.
18 Internal Bleeding

Internal Bleeding is without a doubt a major part of NY DeathSlam scene which along with Suffocation, Skinless, and Repudilation used to destroy venues in the 90's and still kill it today... This band has been through just about every adversity known to man and there so badass there still putting out new records.. So if I have anything to say since I've been in this scene for damn near 30 yrs and there would be no Devourment if it weren't for Internal Bleeding... That's a FACT... (R.I.P Bill Tolley)

THE slam band.
Should be number 1.

19 Visceral Disgorge

Brutal death from the murder capital of the east coast, Baltimore Maryland.

My friend knows these guys personally, such a great band!

Should be way higher on the list...

Dankest riffs bra

20 Guttural Slug

Megalodon has roughly Twenty minutes of Grovy slam complimented with some of the best cricket vocals, and a change in tempo at the halfway mark for the song Hacksay Surgery wich is not slam but rather Brutal death.

21 Infant Annihilator Infant Annihilator are an English/American deathcore band based in Hull, East Yorkshire. The band was formed in 2012 by drummer Aaron Kitcher and guitarist Eddie Pickard.
