The Official Death Metal Recommendations Thread


Recommended Posts

Cerebral Rot, Disentomb, Nightfell, Sempiternal Dusk, Tomb Mold, Vltimas & Witch Vomit have all released absolute crushers this year which I highly recommend to anyone here who enjoys high quality & unique sounding death metal. Also the latest Cannabis Corpse is really fun...or at least as "fun" as a death metal album can be.

*Looks around for a Moment*

Death Metal can be fun right?

I think we're about overdue for another round of these, since it's been a year and a half since my last addition. This is the one that seems to be getting the most attention lately, so I'll start here

Abominable Putridity -  Parasitic Metamorphosis Manifestation

What to say about music? I don’t know what to say. I never know what to say. Excellent guitar sound, very tight, perfectly recorded drums, the vocals are so well done, I just can’t get enough of these vocals. I love the riffs. Non stop palm muted power chords are what my ears need. The riffs are interesting. This music is very relaxing. The existence of guitars and amps that can make these sounds makes an exquisite reality.  Very clear and bright but plenty distorted. 

 

Anal Stabwound - The Visceral Sovereign

Slightly muddy sound. Very technical, precise, interesting, fascinating, I am mesmerized. My ears can hear their way deep into a guitar amp. The snare fits my brain real snug. Vocals float inside of everything. There are guitar solos.

Phlegmlord - Entrenched In Excremental Fumes Of The Rotting

This is a one man band. As is Anal Stabwound. Primitive in a good way. Album is recorded well, everything sounds right. I don't know what I want because I have it already. But every new album I like is recorded well with everything sounding right. I can listen to this on repeat. I can't say if this is very primitive riffing or if it is technical. At first I thought it was very primitive but I am not so sure now. Humans on TV don't know shit about anything, that shit needs to be shut down. Phlegmlord is more informative than fake experts on tv giving shit advice.

Has anyone got any death/doom recommendations? I've recently discovered Konvent and love them, anything like that would be awesome!

I am not the biggest doom fan, but some rec's I do like:

Mortiferum

Void Rot

Temple of Void

Asphyx

Heretical Sect

There's plenty more but from top of my mind these are pretty ok.

Sometimes there isn't much to say. I find it very hard as well to say exactly why I like certain music and others I dont.

Slam definitely has my interest and Abominable Putridity is among my favourites. This also was very good release:

Right hang on.  Don't need another thread of Slam recommendations masquerading as (bad) album reviews thanks.  Merging threads - thank me later.

Anything reducing the amount of slam on a thread is much appreciated... by me, anyway 😜

I really dig Temple Of Void!!!

I'm about 30 years behind on getting into Asphyx, haha. Have been listening to them on and off over the last year or two and liking most of what I've heard.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
