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.

My cats fell out with metal a while back and now desert my office most days if I have it playing in the background. They were here this morning actually until I put the latest Accept album on at which point they left. I probably should have gone with them in all honesty.
Edited FA's list to save me typing a ton of the same stuff.
Gorguts - Colored Sands (2013) - this album massively upped the Gorguts' game and was my pick of top album for the 2010's. Containing songwriting that most bands can only dream of and musicianship that is unrivalled in my opinion, this is a weighty and varied album that despite it's forays into other genres still remains a death metal beast at it's very core.
Akhlys - The Dreaming I (2015) & Melinoë (2020)- 2 of the greatest modern bm albums in my collection (both sitting on vinyl on splattered effect formats). The musical genius of Naas Alcameth knows no boundaries. Melinoë is a suffocating listen. Its main driving force the oppressive nature it imposes on you as a listener, whether through all out battery or utilising menacing atmospherics that would sit just as well on the soundtrack to most horror films, you can't help but fear the sounds it produces. The experience leaves you feeling like being lost at sea and having to swim for some distant shore and the tumult of the tide just endlessly pulls you down to the darkest depths of the blackest waters. Even when you manage to get your head above water again it is not long before you are pulled back under.
Suffocation - Human Waste (EP) (1991) - a true benchmark of brutality that I somehow overlooked for years in favour of Effigy of the Forgotten & Pierced From Within. It's worth noting that they are one of the most copied bands in death metal (along with Incantation) but what the debut shows is that most copycats are just colouring in in comparison to the masterpieces that Suffocation dropped early in their careers.
Altarage - Nihl (2016) - now here is a nasty piece of blackened, squally death metal that knocked me on my arse when I first heard it. A deathly shapeshifting monster of a record that is still truly a horrifying listen. They only came close to topping this with their 2019 offering The Approaching Roar and I believe they have a new record coming out soon but the track I heard left me a bit cold if honest.
Paysage d'hiver - Steinche (1998) Schattengang (1998) - I could list the whole discography probably but these two really standout from the glut of releases I have become familiar with in recent years. Wintherr released three demos that same year and to really understand the depth of the content here you have to grasp his penchant for non-linear storytelling with all of his releases being parts of the same narrative. The predictability factor is low here with tracks on Steinche going from ambient atmospherics to scathing bm in seconds. Schattengang runs with much the same format and again showcases the song writing prowess of Wintherr superbly. Both need a clear schedule to enjoy, no background music here folks.
I could go on all day here but I have to start work (at some point) and I prefer to add rationale on my choices which takes up time - but hopefully promotes discussion.
When I heard slam death metal, he gave me the feeling that a dirty monster was destroying everything
I wanted to listen to some metal music with the feeling of war, so I searched war metal. After listening to some, I found that they were just some faster and more chaotic black metal
They only express war in the lyrics
Is there any band trying to add some sense of war to riff?
For example, use riff to create the feeling of troops marching or fighting
If so, can you recommend it, thank you
