Top 10 Best Slam Death Metal BandsThis is about all the best Slamming and guttural Bands that have been slamming.
The Top Ten
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.
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.
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
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
Such good vocals
Kraanium were one of the best slam bands ever in my opinion. What a pity Martin died...
Seriously? Vulvodynia is on this list as SBDM?
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.
This need to be al least on top 3
Great vocals and amazing performances from the instruments, it all flowa and fits together perfectly
These guys are awesome. They deserve the respect.
Filthy and brutally disgusting!
My absolute favorite band!
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.
This is how to make sure nobody steps on your lawn
Gets the dishes cleaned and the floors done
The better band
Find something heavier than Armathine Redolance
I need to make more slam metal, maybe with some jazz influence... If you want to see this check me out on YouTube as Lopyt *Sir_Guy*. If you don't, go listen to Malodorous, have a great day everyone!
What, disgorge is 3rd place, no lowest
Seriously, why are they so low?
What?! Why they are so low ?!
Why is disgorge so low
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.
It's Waking not walking
Not slam. They're deathcore. They just have slams instead of single-note breakdowns. Same goes for Acrania and Whoretopsy (although they're all great bands).
They broke up, but they are by far my favorite slam band!
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
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 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.
Even though they can't play their own music live, still one of the best bands I have ever heard
Aaron is probably the best slam death metal drummer
Brutal death from the murder capital of the east coast, Baltimore Maryland.
My friend knows these guys personally, such a great band!
Dankest riffs bra
Brutal and wonderful
Brutal, filthy, slamming wonderful sons of various bitches
Heaps of people don't even know about Intracranial purgatory.
How is this not rated higher
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.
Check out their songs Genetic Mutations and Eons In Vacuum if you've never heard them. They're a good band!
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)
Basically the Inventors of Slam
The Inventors of Slam! Come On!
