Often used to describe bands like Pantera and Exhorder. With mid-tempo riffs similar to those found in Thrash Metal and a tendency to focus more on groovy syncopation and heaviness than outright speed.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but you've sort of made another mistake, 'The Thrashing'.
While your answers are interesting and cool, you've actually answered a question from @FatherAlabaster that I've already answered. It's a good question, no doubt, but it's been answered.
This thread is about answering the very last question that is asked in it. If you stick with that idea you can't go wrong. You have to focus though.
So I asked, would you rather give up dairy or wheat? Pretty lame and useless question, I'll admit, but that was technically the last question asked, and in accordance with the rules, you should make an attempt to answer it, if it is at all within your power to do so.
And I'd rather be Robocop.
To me the most extreme, aggressive metal there is, is thrash/death and blackened death thrash. Other genres just don't have that kick in the teeth as far as riffs go.
I haven't seen any new bands to have that same spirit/attitude of we're going to play the fastest, heaviest, most aggressive stuff humanly possible. I only come across the old bands which most of them I already know from the 80s to early 90s. Are there any new bands playing like this? Only Summon (US) comes to mind as far as newer stuff. I'm talking about stuff like Possessed, early Death, Necrovore, Incubus/Opprobrium, early Sadus, early Pestilence, Sacrifice, Hellwitch, Demolition Hammer, Dark Angel, Solstice, Massacra etc
Does anyone have any hidden gem recommendations for me?
