If you enjoy Portal you should check out the self-titled demo from Aethyrvorous. Its more mid-paced but the
primary riffing style remains the same. Shame there was never a follow-up.

my top 3 for the decade poll we just had were venenum, horrendous, and slaegt, all of which fall into this category. since horrendous was already there on the op, and venenum was mentioned in the previous post, i'll just say slaegt have a sort of led zepplin + death metal approach, and their last album the wheel made #3 on my list

I really love Slaegt but to me they sound like Iron Maiden playing black metal songs. The Tower is amazing.



I think The Formulas of Death by Tribulation could also fit this thread.

Damn that is really amazing. I like the mid paced pace. there are lots of mid paced sections in ulcerate as well. it builds up atmosphere.

Great stuff. Very much like Ulcerate and Immolation.

Some of my favorite newer death metal bands as of late have been the ones that take old school death metal and push its boundaries.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely still enjoy the more straightforward OSDM worship, but my favorites are bands like Blood Incantation, Cryptic Shift, Horrendous, Voidceremony, Zealotry, Nucleus, the new Unaussprechlichen Kulten, etc. Bands who have a forward thinking, somewhat progressive approach to the murky old school sound that pushes the envelope.

I've merged your thread here into the Death Metal Help Thread. Please use the megathreads where appropriate when requesting recommendations.

I made these for those that collect Old School Death Metal. These are top 100 lists from 1988-2017 starting with Death's Leprosy.

Looking for this? :wanker:

There's a fairly fitting list for what you seem to enjoy on Rate Your Music that I'll post below. I'm a picky asshole, so I can't personally vouch for everything on this list, but it seems relevant to your request so I'll just provide and let you choose for yourself. I would, however, highly recommend Ghoulgotha, Epitaphe, Pavor (not really new; albums in '94 and '03, but necessary), Undersave, Inanna, Plague Pit, Crimson Massacre (not new, but an incredibly unique and virtuosic album), Cosmic Atrophy, Anata, and Polyptych. Specific mention on the list goes to Molested from Norway, whose entire discography is both eldritch and brutal; Timeghoul, who you probably know, since they specifically inspired a handful of the bands you mentioned, but if you DON'T...you damn well need to. One of the coolest and most unique demo-only death metal bands of the 90s, probably of all time. THREE GUITARISTS!! And they fucking justified it!! Incredible. Anyway, I also highly recommend Traumasphere from that list, presented as Abyssal Suffering on RYM; not technically incorrect, as they changed their name to that later on and did another (less cool) demo, but the Voidcall demo was definitely under the Traumasphere name. It's a really riffy and technical demo with an odd vibe, honestly one of my favorite discoveries of 2020, and this has been a year of new music for me so that's quite an accolade.

https://rateyourmusic.com/list/Sepulcru ... eath-metal

Beyond that list, here are a few more releases that could be considered unique in style or forward-thinking:

Desolation Realm-Desolation Realm: probably the tightest, most accurate band to be directly influenced by Timeghoul. They also cite Immolation, Cryptopsy, and Infester as influences, and if that doesn't excite you, then just gtfo
Tryptamyne-Tryptamyne: really weird proggy DM with a shit ton of jazz influence. Hell, one of the songs just IS jazz. The DM songs themselves are interesting as hell if you like that kind of stuff, but they do sneak some grating clean vocals in there as well, though sparingly. Still worth a listen!
Gash-Crossing the Lugubrious: Demilich inluenced, still fairly unique stuff

Dunno if you're too much of a pussy for brutal death metal or not, but Defeated Sanity is bar-none the most forward thinking death metal band, brutal or non, so check that out if you haven't already. If you want an actual old school band that is more forward-thinking than most of what comes out almost 30 years later, check out the first two Atrocity albums. Awesome stuff.

That's a lot of names, a good chunk of which you've likely already heard, but I hope this has helped you find a couple new things to check out!

I really liked Unanimated's Ancient God of Evil, are there any other albums similar to that? I really liked the melodeath/meloblack combination that album had.

Try these:

Caedes Cruenta - ερείπια ψυχών (2014)
Cult of Eibon - Lycan Twillight Sorcery (2017 EP)
Primal Cult - Perennial Fire (2018)

Horrified might be what you're looking for (the band, not the Repulsion album), old school melodic black/death metal

I am listening to Karmacipher and Aethyrvorous these days. First of all I want to know the technical term of what the drummer is doing in these bands(especially Karmacipher). He seems to be playing very off kilter off beat stuff. Is it called syncopation or what is it called. The second question is how can I find other bands that are doing this stuff. It seems they all derive their style from immolation and ulcerate but I don't think there is a name for this style.

Do you have some song and time references for anything in particular? Without something specific it's hard to say what you're referring to. It's technical and/or progressive death metal drumming, which runs the gamut of different techniques, which yes, includes lots of syncopation, but it's difficult to know what exactly you're looking for because it's a very complex style with all kinds of things going on.

If you want to know the origin of it, check out albums like Atheist's Piece of Time, Death's Human, and Suffocation's Effigy of the Forgotten. It developed over the 90s especially with many other bands like Cynic, Pestilence, Cryptopsy, Nile, and such. It's mostly a combination of pushing the extremity of speed and technique in the genre with incorporating odd time signatures, meter changes and other elements from progressive rock, jazz/fusion and other genres.

Just to quote a couple of examples


https://youtu.be/wYpaTrRjQFw?t=1217

https://youtu.be/3IG_JCaoarw?t=1122

Also the title song in Close to a World Below by Immolation is a good example.

I don't think it is in the direction of Suffocation which I don't think is syncopated or whatever the term is.

Ulcerate and Immolation are more like that style which I am looking for.

EDIT:-Gorguts is also one of the references for this style.

OK, that's strange. It says my Unanimated post was from a few days ago, but I know for sure I didn't post it then, I posted it in like 2018.

I do like that Cult of Eibon album, reminds me a lot of Rotting Christ (Thy Mighty Contract is another one of my favourite albums).

I'm looking for current death metal albums with sounds along the lines of Monstrosity - Imperial Doom and/or Gorguts - The Erosion of Sanity.

Keep it relatively current, as in the past two or three years; chances are if it's older, I already know about it.

I'd have to recommend the newest Afterbirth records (Four Dimensional Flesh, The Time Traveler's Dilemma) - much less slam influenced than previous Afterbirth records and plenty progressive. I'd also recommend the newest Monstrosity album if you haven't heard it - it's pretty fun but I wouldn't call it a favorite of mine.

Other than that, lemme throw down some other recs:
Portal - ION
Hated - Breathless Art (especially if you dig that later Death sound)
Pyrrhon - Abscess Time (very eclectic, reminds me of noise rock meets tech death)

Lemme know what you think!!!

Monstrosity's last album was really good. It was one of my ten favorite albums of 2018.



I have heard songs from the Hated album and liked it. I recall there was no physical copy of it available. Has that changed yet?

Check out Psypheria, they're technically a Nocturnus clone but imo closer to symphonic death metal than Nocturnus.

Not quite what I was looking for, but I sure enjoyed it, so they'll go on my list either way! :D
