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.

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.

They set the rules for slam death metal, they are slam godfathers. They're like Slayer for thrash metal and Bathory for black metal.

Only free wordS, FATHER OF SLAM.

6 Vulvodynia Vulvodynia

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

Love this band to death, honestly, their vocals inspire me to learn how to scream. Their lyrics make me laugh most times because they're so gruesome

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.

Vulvodynia helped me get my little brother into slam. I'm thankful to them for that. - Solariser
