Huh, I've never really thought of Covenant as sounding "medieval." Dire Omen's Wresting the Revelation of Futility has a similar style to that album in the faster riffs, and it also feels occultic:

Sepulchral Zeal and Possession (Belgium) are two death metal bands I would definitely say sound dark, occult, and medieval.

I'd recommend Shub Niggurath (Mexico), Imprecation (USA) and Totten Korps (Chile) off the top of my head.

I asked for some recommendations a couple of pages back. I still didn't get any.

I mean, you're asking for a specific sound from a specific year, so there's no guarantee anyone has anything. Maybe Parasitic Slavery by Body Harvest is vaguely close to what you're looking for? It doesn't have as many breakdowns though, I think.

I am really bored, and I am expecting the answer to be a flat "no", even given how many bands exist in this wide genre, but I really must ask:

Is there anything out there, even one band, that could remotely be called, using the archives' genre labeling, either

-Progressive Slam
-Atmospheric Brutal Death metal (or Atmo. Slam but there's no way that shit exists lmao)

I'm expecting "no" but hell, it might exist out there, and I absolutely want to hear this utterly incomprehensible genre.

Would love to hear someone actually take a crack at this idea properly, the closest thing I have heard would be a few moments on the Proteus album Personal Narrative of Cognitive Dreamscapes and maybe the Jenovavirus demo.
Otherwise everytime I have heard something tagged "atmospheric slam" it ends up just being another deathcore band with some heavily reverbed/delayed guitar lines and juddery time sigs which does not equate "atmospheric" imo.

I have a suspicion that slogging through (positive) Noktorn reviews might yield results. That said, the quality might not be brilliant. For example, I can imagine Jenovavirus being an acquired taste at best.

I'm not sure about atmo slam but you may find a bunch of bands if you want to search for atmo sludge

Atmospheric sludge on metal-archives is often an euphemism for post-metal, which they didn't adopt as a genre label until lately for some reason. You'll find bands like Cult of Luna and Pelican.

Enmity - Illuminations of Vile Engorgement - slambient

Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris - new age brutal death

Morpheus Descends - Chronicles of the Shadowed Ones - not really brutal, but atmospheric as fuck

7 H. Target - Psy Slam Damage - tech slam

Dripping - Disintegration of Thought Patterns During a Synthetic Mind Traveling Bliss - bizarro brutal death

I don't hate Edge of Sanity. I am listening to them and I see that there are the properly aggressive parts mixed with ultra melodic parts but it has an identity of its own. I just wonder if there is more stuff out there like Crimson I mean from other bands.

Well, I would recommend Entombed's Morning Star album due to its thrashy nature and catchy, heavy and headbanging riffs.

@Xymosys

Sure, nothing wrong with that rec just a bit obvious given that I have heard Entombed so many times already before.

Hey guys, could anyone recommend some brutal bands similar to Gorgasm, Deeds of Flesh. Please no slam, i went through a slam stage and i am burnt out on it.


Hopefully something in here to your liking:

Regurgitation - Tales of Necrophilia (fucking savage and reasonably technical brutal death)
Sepsism – To prevail in disgust (debut is also great but more old school brutal ala CC, this however ought to fit your request)
Deprecated - Deriding His Creation (bdm super group, short but sweet like a mix of old Pyrexia, DoF, Disgorge all thats good)
Pyaemia – Cerebral Cereal (absolutely killer well rounded work of bdm)
Flesh Consumed – Anything (personally I recommend Mutilate, Eviscerate, Decapitate... cali brutality, techy but with a nice sense of groove)
Defeated Sanity - Prelude to the Tragedy (less dense than later releases, imo has mid-period DoF vibe)
Dissenter – Bloodlust & Blasphemy (polish dm mix of Deeds of Flesh, Deicide and as to be expected Vader)
Sarcolytic - Thee Arcane Progeny (excellent tech brutality, think DoF meets Nile with some Myrkskog on the side)
Guttural Secrete – Reek of pubescent despoilment + Nourishing the spoil (fast spastic bdm with a little bit of slam)
Disentomb – Misery (brutal and technical, like Disgorge meets Immolation with some crushing doomy passages)
Inveracity - Circle of Perversion (very Suffocation influenced but has that dry clipped DoF feel)
Disavowed – Perceptive Deception (mix of DoF and percussive NYDM style stuff)
Severed Savior - Brutality Is Law (more cali brutality, on the techier side especially so on their second lp)
Visceral Bleeding – Any (ferocious and dense technical bdm, all good stuff but I personally prefer their first album)
Defaced Creation – Serenity in Chaos (excellent Swedish bdm, became Aeon)
Condemned – Realms of the Ungodly (more bdm and less slam than their other releases)
Goratory – Any (you may be best off with Sexual Intercorpse, later stuff is increasingly technical and ridiculous but good fun)


This stuff is absolutely top tier stuff. I didn't get it at the time it was posted. Now revisiting those pages. Also looking
into @Blarg223 suggestions.

I listened/sampled a lot of stuff through @Hayisforhorses and @Blarg223 recommendations and I'm surprised at how much I missed at the time. Time to try again. So far I tried and liked the following:

Deprecated
Sepsism
Septycal Gorge
Dissenter
Sarcolytic
Malignancy(especially liked)
Condemned
Defaced Creation
Deivos
Broken Torso


I haven't heard/sampled the rest so likely this list is going to grow longer once I do try more bands.


Bands that I am familiar with but which do not interest me as much are:

Hate Eternal
Hour of Penance

Bands that are great for me are:

CANNIBAL CORPSE(any friggin' album)
Suffocation(almost any album)
Death(ANY ALBUM)

and there are others but these are the primary ones

Hoping to get some recommendations in the BDM and Slam genre. Not so much slam though.

Impressive list, hayisforhorses. Very impressive actually. Shocked to see Nefas, Broken Torso, and a few others on there, you really know your stuff. I have a few other recommendations I might add, generally in the Early 2000s BDM style. My favorite label in BDM currently is New Standard Elite, and they really specialize in raw sounding brutal death, very much in that turn-of-the-decade format. Here's a few NSE releases in particular I think you'll really enjoy, and honestly everything the label releases is quality. It's run by Dan Osborne, drummer of Inherit Disease, which is also a band you should really check out if you haven't already, especially Visceral Transcendence. He's also a good personal friend of mine and is going to be playing drums in a project that I'm starting in the vein of Abhorrence, Nox, Rebaelliun, Hate Eternal, etc. lol.

Abnormal Inhumane-Consuming the Infinity (new Greek BDM, very strong Inveracity/Deeds of Flesh vibes)
Injury Deepen-Anthropophagus Realm (Inndonesian band that sounds a lot like Gorgasm. Honestly the whole Indo scene sounds a lot like Disgorge, so looking into some of those bands isn't a bad idea, such as Bloody Gore, Asphyxiate, Bleeding Corpse, Anorgasm, Bleeding Murder, Gerogot, Gore Infamous, Guttural Disease, Jasad, Plasmoptysis, Reduced, etc. It's a gold mine if you can dig through the literally hundreds of bands from there)
Iniquitous Deeds-Incessant Hallucinations (probably my favorite release on the label. Super alien sounding BDM; if you want to hear the weirdest shit ever, listen to the last 2 minutes of Infinitive Putrefaction)
Baalsebub-The Sickness of the Holy Inquisition (Estonian Brodequin worship)
Abhorrent Castigation-Throne of Existential Abandonment (German brutality that had Lille Gruber of Defeated Sanity on drums)
Delusional Parasitosis-Ingurgitating Intestinal Rot (hyperblasting raw brutality with predator vocals)
Dissevered-Agonized Wails of Disseverment (Laotian BDM)
Ecchymosis-Aberrant Amusement in Cadaveric Vomitplay (totally raw, sloppily powerful Thai BDM)
Embodied Torment-Liturgy of Ritual Execution (imagine a more dark, atmospheric Brodequin)
Euphegenia-Telexistent Depravity (members of Guttural Secrete and Cerebral Incubation)
Infectology-Innards of Misanthropic Embodiment (Ecuadoran brutal death)
Omnipotent Hysteria-Abattoir of Slain Deities (UK BDM in the vein of Disgorge and such)
Virulency-The Anthropodermic Manuscript of Retribution (insane vocal variation, Spanish band)
Seminal Embalmment-Seminal Embalmment (BRAND NEW Aussie brutal death, very Gorgasm-y)
Cerebral Effusion-Idolatry of the Unethical (one of Spain's best BDM bands, right up there with Wormed and Human Mincer)

Some other releases that aren't from NSE, with a wide range of years, though since Hay covered most early 2000s BDM already, a fair bit will be newer releases, 2008 and onward.

Septycal Gorge-Scourge of the Formless Breed (Italian brutal death, slightly techy, like most stuff from that area)
Insidious Decrepancy-Extirpating Omniscient Certitude (the best one man brutal death metal band of all time)
Unfathomable Ruination-Finitude
Fleshbomb-Reincarnated in Abomination
Derogation-Revival of a Nest Ignorant (another Ukrainian band)
Posthumous Blasphemous-Exhumation of Sacred Impunity (Belarusian BDM that's strangely technical, but not in a meedly-meedly sweeping way)
Relics of Humanity-Ominously Reigning upon the Intangible (Ukranian band, similar to Disentomb imo)
7 H. Target-0.00 Apocalypse (Spazzy Russian sickness)
Despondency-God on Acid
Blasphemer-On the Inexistence of God (very technical and riffy ITDM, sure to please)
Internal Suffering-Unmercyful Extermination (this is an early EP of theirs. Later work is much more well known and popular, but I love the rawness of this. Also, I am a HUGE fan of the Colombian scene; if you want to hear the rawest, most disgusting shit on the planet, dig into that scene, from around 2001-09 especially. Bands like Suppuration, Mindly Rotten [first album], Mental Apraxia, Blaze Inside, Wormeaten, Ancient Necropsy, Carnal, Goretrade, Evil Darkness, Melting Flesh,. Masturbation, Phalogore, My Plague, and Sadistic Mutilation. Here's actually a write-up and list I made about the scene: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/Morguelo ... ath-metal/
Alienation Mental-Ball Spouter (Craaaaazy Czech technical death/grind!!!)
Mortal Decay-Sickening Erotic Fanaticism (some of the best early BDM work ever)
Carnophage-Deformed Future//Genetic Nightmare
The Sickening-Sickness Unfold
Gorged Bile-Absterged from Hominal Patterns (the name brings to mind Pyaemia almost as much as the music)
Colonize the Rotting-Composting the Masticated
Severe Torture- Misanthropic Carnage (not sure how I missed this, one of the greatest brutal death metal bands of all time. All albums are great, but especially the first 2!!)
Kataplexia-Supreme Authority
Deepred-Prophetic Luster (extremely underrated Finnish brutal death, very much in that early 2000s style!)
Euphoric Defilement-Ascending to the Worms
Yattering-Human's Pain (disjointed, crazy Polish tech/brutal shit)
Mutilated-Devirginated Genital Pulp (one of my absolute favorite albums, so many fucking riffs!! Sounds like Severe Torture, or if Tomb of the Mutilated was dunked in nuclear waste and mutated into something even more heavy and gross.)
Moonfog-Cadaveric Changes (don't let the name fool you. sick stuff)
Mass Infection-For I Am Genocide (another Greek band, incredible tremolo riffs)
Corpulate-Boundless Expansion (surprisingly Malignancy-esque, also look into Incarrion if you like that style)
Back Door to Asylum-Cerberus Millenia
Necrotic Disgorgement-Suffocated in Shrinkwrap (Hay mentioned Regurgitation, this is almost a continuation of that band, shares members)
Debodified-Utopia in the Eyes of the Beast
Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement-As the Shroud of Suffering Suffocates the Land
Peshmerga-Murderous Acts of Cruelty (probably about the closest thing to Gorgasm you'll ever find, shared members)
Human Filleted- Blunt Force Embludgeonment (another band that shared members with Gorgasm)
Face of Oblivion-Cataclysmic Desolation (kinda techy stuff, out on Comatose last year)
Incinerate-Anatomize
Domination Through Impurity-Masochist
Saprogenic-The Wet Sound of Flesh on Concrete (evil sounding riffs in this one)
Unmerciful-Unmercifully Beaten (debut is best, but the new one is good too)
Pillory-No Lifeguard at the Gene Pool
Sufferatory-Compulsory Martyrdom (Russian band that really likes Suffocation and Pyrexia)
Penis Leech-Proliferation of Malignancy (this is a compilation, but it's easy to find on CD, surprisingly great band)
Gory Delivery-Conceived to Prevail
Embryonic Depravity-Constrained by Miscarriage
Fumes of Decay-Devouring the Excavated
Meathook-Infernal Torture
Gortuary-Manic Thoughts of Perverse Mutilation
Hideous Deformity-Defoulment of Human Purity
Corporectomy-Within the Weak and the Wounded
Decrepidemic-The Void of Un-Existence
Repulsive Dissection-Cut Open the Aberration
Deadlystrain-The Moltitude of Beings
Birth through Gore-The Culmination Conquest
Birth of Depravity-From Obscure Domains
Haemophagia-From Sickness to Cult
Christ Denied-...Got What He Deserved (Dave Rotten of Avulsed!!!!!)
Carnivorous Voracity-The Impious Doctrine
Baalphegor-Post Earthquake Age
Extreme Violence-Ecstasy in Pain
Arsebreed-Munching the Rotten (dumb name, but this is basically what Pyaemia turned into)
Brutus-Slachtbeest (one of the most unrelenting albums of all time)
Houwitser-Rage Inside the Womb (a little more old school but totally savage)
Castrensis-Hierarchies (painfully dark Danish brutal death)
Copremesis-Muay Thai Ladyboys (super fucked up NYDM....)
Purulent Jacuzzi-Vanished in the Cosmic Futility (if you like the Coprobaptized Cunthunter rec, you'll like this)
Gored-Incinerate the Vanquished (tried to shy away from TXDM as the majority is really slam oriented, but I think this fits what you're looking for)
Die-Rise of the Rotten (one of the lesser known Unique Leader releases. Honestly, their entire catalog up until around 2008 is solid fucking gold, everything is worth checking out)

Ok so that's kind of a fuckload of bands. Hope you enjoy some at least, I'm certain you'll enjoy the majority of them.


this stuff is top notch i say ..

Yeah, blarg/Morguelord really knows his brutal death metal. Wish he was more active on these boards.

That said, are you familiar with Afterbirth - Psychopathic Embryotomy? They remind me a lot of Suffocation with their convuluted riffing style.

That album starts out somewhat slow but gets richer later. I particularly like this kind of song:

Those are great tracks indeed. Pretty much the whole album I find consistent honestly, and the weaking sounding production works for me in an odd way.

I'll be checking out the rest of blarg's list very shortly.

Here I've taken the several recommendations and briefly commented the first thoughts on it.



Youtube: show

Disgorge she lay gutted vibe

Youtube: show


Youtube: show

clear Brodequin vibe

Youtube: show


Youtube: show


Youtube: show


Youtube: show


Youtube: show


Youtube: show

Intense and heavy as hell

Youtube: show

Vibes of Spawn of Possession or Decrepit Birth

Youtube: show

Coffee can drums and a very eerie atmosphere. totally recommended

Youtube: show

Good stuff. Gives the effect of being down tuned and good. Drums tuned low also it seems. Sounds like beating a curtain lol

Youtube: show

Great gutturals.

Youtube: show


Youtube: show

Bit tech-y but brutal parts are there

Youtube: show

Great stuff. down tuned and stuff.

Youtube: show

typical bdm with the right tuning. several good slams too. a good solo here and there

Youtube: show

lots of inhaled vocals. pig squeals , ultra gutturals etc. tuned low/good.

Youtube: show

ultra guttural with all instruments tuned down

Youtube: show

not as down tuned as some others. but guitars have a good sound. overall vibe is also decent.

Youtube: show

consistent sound. not tuned particularly low but sounds good. gutturals are quite low though and there's the
occasional scream.

Youtube: show

Simple aggressive effective.

Youtube: show

sounds good but not tuned low enough. sounds a bit thrashy at times.

Youtube: show

Not tuned low enough. sensible music overall just the tuning should have been lower.

Youtube: show

horrifying deadly black sinister music.

Youtube: show

Now this is the sound you don't often get to hear. Very downtuned. Low sounding. Kind of like if an earthquake were audible.

Youtube: show

sounds great by its own standards but tuning could have been lower giving greater weight to the music

Youtube: show

good stuff. tuned low. kind of like a cross between brodequin and disgorge. drummer sounds like he's beating sticks on a wooden table.

Youtube: show

sounds good and i won't complain about not being down tuned enough

Youtube: show

Very weird cricket like vocals/screams whatever. no technical virtuosity but good songwriting.

Youtube: show

Vocals not low enough. Otherwise fine

Youtube: show

sharply tuned instruments to deliver maximal impact.

Youtube: show

may take some time getting into. too much empty space between the drums and the guitars.
sounds great just the bass should be a bit louder in the mix

Youtube: show

evil.nasty. all things death metal. guitars sound like chainsaws delivering a great riff after another.

Youtube: show

no need to say much. it's Severe Torture.

Youtube: show

the vocals are irritating but the rest of the music makes up for it. it's the kind of music there should be more of.

Youtube: show

deep and dark.

Youtube: show

production not up to the mark. too much reverb/echo to the drums.

Youtube: show

great stuff

2011

Youtube: show

low as hell. great production and songwriting.

Youtube: show

sounds good. can't figure out where they are tuning wise. drums seem to be metal sheets

Youtube: show

this is metal for tough minds. heavy use of heaviness inducing heavy things.

Youtube: show

another band that heard and liked Brodequin i suppose. great sound on offer here.

Youtube: show

not downtuned enough but great sound.architecture of songs and layering is great.

Youtube: show

great song craftsmanship but could have been tuned lower.

Youtube: show

sounds ok but they could have made it a bit more extreme if they only pushed themselves more but needs a careful listen there are some good moments on offer here.

Youtube: show


real metal for real metalheads

Youtube: show

very down tuned stuff. very low gutturals to the point that they are just a rumble. great stuff.

Youtube: show

great sounding low sounding death metal. vocalist is just great.

Youtube: show

very high register for a death metal album/song. sounds like hate eternal or hour of penance followers. two bands that
i don't really like.

Youtube: show

aggression but matched with songwriting. great riffs here, nice fills.

Youtube: show

Very high register for DM. the vocalist should be more guttural otherwise the whole thing hangs in air. The redemption is that the guitars are really good as is the drums.

Youtube: show

high level of brutality. drummer seems a bit machine like but otherwise fine it is.

Youtube: show

has a certain attraction to it

Youtube: show

the kind of metal that is made for the great ones.

Youtube: show

Never heard anything like this before. Maybe it's meant to be a joke. But the sound itself is really novel.

Youtube: show

not tuned low enough. would have been killer if it had been. also need lower and louder bass,

Youtube: show

also needs to be lower but sounds quite good the way it is.

Youtube: show

terrific slams to be found here. and an assault hard to withstand. cricket sounding vocals are also interesting. gives the whole thing heaviness.

Youtube: show

Very raw and brutal sound.

Youtube: show

riffs are too good

Youtube: show

Can't believe that death metal musicians would choose to play in this scale. They should be playing in a lower scale otherwise there is no intensity.

Youtube: show
[/youtube]

Youtube: show

Good sound but not great sound. Quite good songwriting though. I just wish they sounded more primeval.

Youtube: show

Interesting.

Youtube: show


tight

Youtube: show


Youtube: show

noteworthy

Youtube: show


Youtube: show

great

Youtube: show

very deep and brutal

Youtube: show

great vocalist, deep music. metal for rock stars.

Youtube: show

listenable

Can someone recommend something like

Disgorge-She Lay Gutted
Coprobaptized Cunthunter
Gortuary
Jasad

something weird like Neoandertals is also fine.

Basically I'm trying to sieve all the bands that have the raw tin can coffee can drum sound or those that have all their instruments tuned way down. A great vocalist is always welcome. By a great vocalist you can refer to the Vocalist of Gortuary.

Another way classy band I forgot was Medecophobic.

Artery Eruption - Gouging Out the Eyes of Mutilated Infants
Pencil Lead Syringe - Suffocated and Embalmed
Purulent Jacuzzi - Vanished in the Cosmic Futility
Encenathrakh - S/T


Are great examples of ultra-downtuned, weirdo brutal death. Also, the ultra-kvlt folks at the NWN boards seems to have an active thread for this stuff. You can probably find a lot of cool bands there.

I need disgusting and filthy brutal death metal with an obnoxious snare that sounds like a kitchen pot or coffee can, ie extremely pingy. Examples are Baalsebub, Excoriation, Gastrorrexis and those few Defeated Sanity songs.

Super obvious suggestion would be Brodequin.

Otherwise some of personal favourites, Orchidectomy, Blaze Inside, Agony Conscience, Coprobaptized Cunthunter, Devouring Humanity

I've exhausted most of the listed recommendations in this list. I haven't done much else in the past couple days.Now I need more shit.

I don't like open sounding bands. I like closed cavernous sounding bands like they are playing in a haze or smog. Hard to describe very clearly though.

EDIT:--

I'm looking for more Disgorge She lay gutted type of brutality. Bit of a slammy aspect is cool as well though if it's purely non slam that is cool too. The thing I like about the Disgorge vibe is that it's very flat sounding. Like the drums have cotton on top of them and that it sounds like they're playing in an acoustically insulated chamber. I do like pingy snares the coffee can sound is interesting as played by Gastrorrexis etc. Some examples of bands which have lived up to my expectations are Excoriate, Gastrorrexis, CENOTAPH, Membro Genitali Befurcator, Jasad, Fadihat and others.

I'm trying to remember the name of a death metal band. I can't remember much about it musically, other than it had some rather strange and unorthodox vocals for the genre. Lyrically, the band wrote of incomprehensible and kind of demonic things. I remember there was a song about touching a portal and screaming until the mouth disappeared, and vomited guts turning into a kind of space balloon and floating people off into space.
