Death Metal

MetalMusicArchives.com — the ultimate metal music online community, from the creators of progarchives.com

Death metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal. It typically employs heavily distorted guitars, deep growling vocals, blast beat drumming, and complex song structures with multiple tempo changes.

Building from the musical structure of thrash metal, death metal emerged during the mid 1980s. It was mainly inspired by thrash metal acts like Slayer, Kreator and Celtic Frost. Along with the band Death and its frontman Chuck Schuldiner (who is often referred to as "the father of death metal"), bands like Possessed and Morbid Angel are often considered pioneers of the genre. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, death metal gained more media attention as popular record labels like Earache and Roadrunner began to sign death metal bands at a rapid rate. Since then, death metal has diversified, spawning a rich variety of subgenres.

Inclusive death metal music subgenres:

  • Brutal death metal See: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/subgenre/brutal-death-metal
  • Melodic death metal See: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/subgenre/melodic-death-metal
  • Swedish death metal, also referred to as Scandinavian death metal, should not be confused with melodeath. This genre is characterized by its focus on raw energy and aggression. The guitars are typically extremely distorted and downtuned, and, in addition to traditional death metal elements, artists within this subgenre also draw on hardcore punk and early thrash metal. While not restricted to Sweden, the genre is called death metal because it was largely popularized by death metal artists from Sweden, such as Carnage, Nihilist, early Entombed, Dismember, Grave, and Unleashed. Seeing that many of the prominent artists within this genre were located in around Stockholm, it is sometimes referred to as the Stockholm sound in contrast with the Gothenburg sound. While big in the 1990s, the popularity of this genre waned in the 2000s, as melodeath became more popular, but recently a number of bands based in Eastern Europe, such as Brutally Deceased and Morbider, have taken up the Stockholm sound and are bringing it back onto the scene.
  • Death-grind combines elements from death metal with element of grindcore. From grindcore, the genre inherits song brevity (with the average length being 2:30), emphasis on fast picking and blastbeating as well as the lyrical content (which means that a lot of death-grind deals with gore, pornography or socio-politics). From death metal, it inherits song complexity and focus on performance and technique, although guitar solos are not as common as in other styles of death metal. When Napalm Death started to gravitate towards death metal from pure grindcore, they developed a death-grind sound, and they are probably the most influential band in the death-grind genre. Other death-grind acts are Lock Up, Terrorizer, and Pig Destroyer. On MMA, those death-grind artists and releases that lean more towards grindcore are included under grindcore, while those that lean more towards death metal are included under death metal.
  • Technical/progressive (or tech/prog) death metal See: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/subgenre/technical-death-metal
  • Blackened death metal combines death metal and black metal, of lyrically the focus is typically on Satanism, occultism and anti-religion. Behemoth is considered one of the most influential blackened death metal bands.
  • Death ‘n’ roll See: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/subgenre/death-n-roll


The following subgenres are NOT listed under death metal in the MMA:

  • Grindcore: has its own sugbenre section.
  • Death-thrash: included under thrash metal.
  • Deathcore: included under metalcore.
  • Doom-death: included under doom metal.

SUPURATION Isolated

EP · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Isolated" is an EP release by French death metal act Supuration. The EP was released through Seraphic Decay Records in 1991. It follows the release of Supuration´s 1990 demos and the 1990 "Sultry Obssession" EP. The material featured on most of the minor Supuration releases from 1991 was culled from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91".

Stylistically it´s also a continuation of the relatively brutal (for the time) death metal style Supuration initiated on their 1990 releases. Supuration have a bit more up their sleeves than your regular death metal act though, and there´s a progressive edge to their music (including the use of keyboards and clean vocals), which was quite unusual for the time. "Isolated" is culled from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91", while "Sultry Obsession" as far as I can hear is culled directly from the 1990 "Sultry Obsession" demo/EP. "The Creeping Unknown" is culled from the 1991 "The Creeping Unknown" single (but ultimately also comes from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91").

As the case is what almost all of Supuration´s early 90s releases, "Isolated" is a good quality death metal release with progressive leanings. Although the material are culled from different releases, the sound production on all three tracks are relatively well sounding (considering that this is early 90s demo/single/EP death metal recordings). A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

SUPURATION The Creeping Unknown

Single · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Creeping Unknown" is a single release by French death metal act Supuration. The single was released through Morbid Records in 1991. Supuration formed in 1990 and released quite a few minor releases before recording and releasing their 1993 debut full-length studio album "The Cube". "The Creeping Unknown" is just one of those minor releases. The material featured on most of the minor Supuration releases from 1991 was culled from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91", and that´s also the case with the two tracks featured on "The Creeping Unknown" ("The Creeping Unknown" and "Sojourn In The Absurd").

Both the title track and "Sojourn In The Absurd" are good quality death metal compositions with a progressive edge. Powerful growling vocals, intriguing riffs and rhythms, melancholic lead guitar work and an overall interesting atmosphere. The sound production is of a good quality too, so upon conclusion "The Creeping Unknown" is another intriguing release from the early 90s Supuration catalogue, which is well worth investigating. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

SUPURATION In Remembrance of a Coma

Single · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"In Remembrance of a Coma" is a single release by French death metal act Supuration. The single was released through Distorted Harmony in 1991. The material featured on most of the minor Supuration releases from 1991 was culled from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91", and that´s also the case with the two tracks featured on "In Remembrance of a Coma" ("In Remembrance of a Coma" and "1308.JP.08").

Stylistically the two tracks on the single is death metal with progressive leanings. It´s still primarely rooted in old school death metal but Supuration are not content with just playing straight forward death metal and their songwriting is pretty adventurous and eclectic for the time. Clean futuristic/robotic vocals (on "In Remembrance of a Coma" they are more of the spoken variant) compliment the growling death metal vocals, and the music features both keyboards, clean guitars, and a good portion of tempo-changes and compositional shifts in direction.

"In Remembrance of a Coma" is the more regular Supuration track of the two tracks on the single, while "1308.JP.08" is quite unconventional sounding like a death metal song where the songwriters have listened to a lot of Voivod and Killing Joke. It´s a pretty odd track, but certainly intriguing. The material is well produced and this is overall a good quality single release from Supuration and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

MITOCHONDRION Archaeaeon

Album · 2008 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
The Canadian MITOCHONDRION which got its start in Victoria, British Columbia in 2003 is amongst a new breed of dissonant death metal bands that has popped up since the late 1990s with the intent to craft dense ominous atmospheres as its primary focus and in the process incorporating myriad methodologies of extreme metal techniques to generate a chaotic and complex surrealist’s soundscape of otherworldly metallic bleakness. Founded by guitarist / vocalist Shawn Haché and guitarist / bassist / vocalist Nick Yanchuk along with early members bassist Nick Gibas, guitarist Mitch Aramenko and drummer Jesse Anderson, the band experienced the usual turmoil of lineup changes before settling as the four piece of Haché, Yanchuk, Godard and Gibas.

While following in the footsteps of bands like Portal, Gorguts, Ulcerate and Pyrrhon, MITOCHONDRION developed its own stylistic approach early on thus setting itself apart in significant ways. Primarily steeped in the world of chaotic and dissonant death metal, MITOCHONDRION spawned its first early convocation ARCHAEAEON in 2008 as a self-released limited edition of only 666 copies but due to the its rising popularity has since found the proper label support on the Dark Descent label which remastered this debut in 2011 and has reissued it with completely new cover artwork. The remastering was performed by none other than metal avant-gardist Colin Marston of Krallice, Dysrhythmia and Behold… The Arctopus fame. The music while more accessible than most of Marston’s output offers a plethora of metal stylistic approaches that deliver a turbulent descent into the an atmospheric yet intense metal encounter.

ARCHAEAEON successfully weaves together a tapestry of metallic savagery owing as much to the burgeoning modernities of technical death metal as it does the more continuous streamlined flow of the old school variety. Often compared to Deathspell Omega for delivering an order to chaos approach, the blackened avant-garde tones and bleak barbarity of the musical flow is undeniably intense in nature and yet utterly impossible to pigeonhole into an established subgenre of the metal universe. While chaotic and dissonant in the vein of Portal or Ulcerate, ARCHAEAEON delivers its descent into darkness in a martial stylistic approach akin to going to battle as if the band crafted its own metallic vision of some of the classical soundtrack moments on epic films such as The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. While many disso-death bands excel in complexities that offer curveball drifting into time signature rich frenzies or atmospheric abstractness, MITOCHONDRION delivers a fairly uniform rhythmic procession through the entire 71 1/2 minute run of ARCHAEAEON.

The band proves on this debut that it exhibits the perfect flow of consciousness that is punctuated by moments of atmospheric respite as well as delivering an incessant cascade of martial rhythmic guitar riffing, war metal style drumming techniques and moments of lead guitar soloing that offer more than enough variety to keep the entire album from stagnating even for a single track’s worth of playing time. The tracks are cohesive in how they interact from one to the next and the confluence of the death metal techniques with black metal and occasional doom metal excursions provides the perfect recipe for a well-crafted album’s worth of technical yet not too abstract strain of innovative death metal. It would not be an understatement to call the overall feel and mood of the album epic in scope and instrumental fortitude. The secret of the album’s appeal is that it never allows you to fall off the trajectory set forth. The incessant riffing and marital drumming styles keep you enthralled in the battle at hand and the excessive arsenal of variations that decorate the rhythmic flow are vast in scope and maintain a highly aggressive and satisfying delivery system.

This album was one of those love at first spin affairs but after a fair number of repeating attentive listening experiences it is also one that has a surprisingly satisfactory staying power as all the elements are so perfectly strewn about in a way that doesn’t allow your attention to drift off and destroy the momentum. MITOCHONDRION has proven itself to be one of the major players in the modern world of the new and varied extreme death metal varieties and this debut ARCHAEAEON showcases the band on full operational mode from the very initial opening “Chapter 11” on through to the 14-minute plus powerhouse “137 (Death’s Hedecaratia)” right down to the noise-ambient closer “Conclusion: Organum Exitus.” The band delivers a highly intellectual album based on the texts of Gnosticism and administers it all with a brash bravado of a seasoned extreme metal band that gracefully blends all its astute research of the metal universe into a cohesive whole of metal splendor. This band has risen quite high in my world and one listen to this complex behemoth of a debut should answer the question of why i have come to that conclusion. A brilliant beginning that was followed by the 2011 masterwork “Parasignosis.”

SUPURATION Empheral Paradise

Single · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Empheral Paradise" is a single release by French death metal act Supuration. The single was released through Regurgitated in 1991. The material featured on most of the minor Supuration releases from 1991 was culled from the August 1991 "Promo tape '91", and that´s also the case with the two tracks featured on "Empheral Paradise" ("Empheral Paradise" and "Reveries Of A Bloated Cadaver").

"Empheral Paradise" is a track showing the many different elements of Supuration´s sound from this period. Both thrash- and death metal riffing, tempo-changes, occasional doom/death heaviness, atmospheric lead guitar work, growling- and futuristic/robotic sounding clean vocals, eerie keyboards, and a generally unconventional and adventurous approach to death metal songwriting. "Reveries Of A Bloated Cadaver" is a slightly more brutal and death metal oriented song, but of course that track also features one or two progressive inclined moments.

Qaulity wise I think "Empheral Paradise" is the better composition of the two, but "Reveries Of A Bloated Cadaver" is still a good quality track featuring the unique sound of early Supuration. The sound production is of a good quality, although the clean guitars on "Reveries Of A Bloated Cadaver" sound a bit "off" in the mix. Considering that these tracks were culled from a demo the sound production is just fine though. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

NAPALM DEATH Punishment in Capitals

Movie · 2003 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
Punishment In Capitals is a 2002 live DVD (also available on CD) by British extreme metal icons Napalm Death, released after their triumphant Enemy Of The Music Business album won back the praise of fans and critics after their experimental string of records in the nineties.

The band play a mixture of every era in their career up to that point, the catchy nineties singles ‘Breed To Breathe,’ and ‘Greed Killing,’ sit side by side with mid era death inspired fare such as ‘Suffer The Children,’ and ‘World Keeps Turning,’ which blends against the band’s early grindcore material era like ‘Scum,’ ‘Lucid Fairy Tale,’ and the famous ‘You Suffer,’ in a set list which also leans heavily on the band’s then newest, and still arguably best album Enemy Of The Music Business.

Standout tracks include an energetic version of ‘Hung,’ as well as ‘Can’t Play Won’t Play,’ and ‘Narcoleptic,’ which was as yet unreleased at the time of recording. With a set-list of this caliber, Punishment In Capitals should be a rewarding viewing experience for most Napalm Death fans and would serve well as an introduction to the band for potential fans as well.

Interestingly, the DVD recording retains all the dead air, waiting out-of-breathe and other non-musical moments in between tracks, presenting you the gig as it actually happened and not inter-cutting the show with outside material to create some false sense of professionalism or excitement. This is a double edged sword as it is commendable but may still irritate viewers raised on slicker, fast paced major label DVD releases.

The production is fairly good in terms of audio recording quality and mix, with simple camera work and editing covering the visual side of things. Although not the most impressive looking DVD ever released, it serves well for Napalm Death to deliver an energetic a sweaty performance. My only major gripe is that for the first half of the show shots of drummer Danny Herrera are very few and far between, but this is remedied later on.

There are a fair amount of extras too, including two bootleg quality recordings in Tokyo from 1996, a six track selection from a Chilean gig in 1997 as well as a hidden Easter Egg (a live-in-a-TV-studio version of ‘If The Truth Be Known,’ accessible by making the image’s eyes glow red my navigating the menu.) In addition to the musical extras there is also a documentary, which while not masterfully crafted is worth at least one watch, covering topics such as Barney’s haircut, the effect of foreign food on the bowels and the charity for which this gig was in aide of.

Overall, Punishment In Capitals is a worthwhile DVD purchase that will give you a good selection of Napalm Death material, both in the concert itself and with a nice selection of extras. Definitely recommended viewing for fans of the band.

This DVD captures Norwegian death metal band Zyklon on their 'Aeon,' era tour Live; the tracklisting on the wonderful but slightly short DVD is made up of tracks from the bands excellent first two albums.

The band are on top form and deliver the material fantastically live, They never miss a step, and are ruthlessly professional.

Song's from the band's debut album are much better here with new singer Tony 'SecthDamon,' Ingebrigtsen. Who has a better voice to match the material than Daemon did.

Furthermore the audio and visual quality is great, and apart from a little intro interrupting the first 20 seconds of fan favorite 'Core Solution,' there's very little to complain about whatsoever.

Indeed, with such a brilliant performance, a good production and an excellent track listing, this DVD is a real must-have for any Zyklon fan.

AMON AMARTH Wrath of the Norsemen

Kingcrimsonprog
Talk about value for money, from a band like Amon Amarth you wouldn’t expect them to be able to afford such a crazily generous and in depth DVD package when some of the bigger bands can’t afford anything even half this good.

The Set comes in a glorious 3 DVD digipak with detailed artwork, a full booklet and an awesome little viking crown that keeps it closed. Then you get Five full concerts (with 22, 16,13, 11 and 9 tracks respectively) and a documentary.

The main feature; a 22 track concert from Cologne in 2005 is an incredible affair with crystal clear sound, Huge guitar tones, amazingly heavy drums and nice clunky bass. The camera work is of a higher quality than even some of the biggest metal bands’ DVDs and again the sound is immense.

Then theres the performance, the band are absolutely electric delivering furious renditions of material from all eras a their career from the massive ‘Amon Amarth,’ and ‘Fate of Norns,’ to catchy closer ‘Death In Fire,’ and the crowd just lap it up.

Vocalist Johan Hegg absolutely commands the stage, engaging the crowd at every opportunity and singing his heart out while the band hammer through their classics like ‘heavy,’ is going out of style.

On top of all that you have a great light show, huge Amon Amath banners, more pyro than a kiss concert and an interlude with about thirty Viking reenactors sword fighting on stage! That feature is worth the money alone, the show is probably one of the best metal concerts on the market and I can’t stress how good the sound and picture are; then on top of all that you get the rest of the set, featuring virtually ever Amon Amarth song ever written, and performances from ‘Waken Open Air festival,’ ‘Summer Breeze Festival,’ and two more indoor concerts in Europe.

If you like Amon Amarth Buy this right now. If you don’t, you will within thirty seconds of watching this.
