2 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.

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... - Vegashustler01


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. - ThatStrangeKid42

Devourment should be number 1, they practically created slam death.

8 Vulvodynia Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia isn't even slamming brutal death metal! why this band in this list though?

As a South African the music here is terrible for mostly because of our main language Afrikaans and Afrikaans pop to me is more terrible than regular pop but this band is probably some of the best music to come out of South Africa

They're so brutal, just insanely brutal. the best slam band is either vulvodynia, guttural slug, or extermination dismemberment

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
