Just noticed that there´s a new Element ( http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/element.aspx?ac=eleme - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/element.aspx?ac=eleme ) album coming out in late November:

Yep and actually much in the same technical brutal death metal style. I wasn´t much of a fan of Suffocation back in the early nineties, but I´ve spend the last couple of years gettin´ into their albums, and now I fully understand the praise they get and how influential their albums have been on the death metal genre. My favorite is:

I've got to get more Suffocation.  I only have Pierced from Within, and I'm familiar with one of their newer albums my brother has (self-titled).

The only Death Metal i listen to is opeth i guess, are there any bands you can recommend with a grunt that is a lot like mikeal's? I absolutely love death metal, but with a lot of bands, the vocals are just to big of a point to get past.

Yes I think it is. I´m quite the great fan of Katatonia ( all eras included) though it´s only the first two albums that are worth mentioning when were talking death metal or doom/ death if you will. Brave Murder Day is especially interesting if you ask me.

Big fan of Katatonia over here too, and yeah it's Åkerfeldt grunting on BMD. Own all the albums except Dance of December Souls and now seen them live twice. At least Brave Murder Day is pretty great from the early era. In last year's live performance they surprisingly played "Murder", Renkse singing the growls too.

Been discovering some death metal lately, most recently this one...

MORTA SKULD: "Dying Remains"

I liked it though it's a bit too long, kind of starts to lose its power in the middle.

I´m pretty sure you would enjoy "Dance of December Souls" quite a lot. I didn´t use to enjoy it much ( I´ve had a Cassette version for years), but I´ve recently purchased the album cheap on CD and now I´m beginning to understand why it´s so widely considered one of the seminal doom/ death albums from the early nineties.
 
I´d like to recommend this album, which I´m currently listening to a lot. It´s free for legal download here http://contaigeon.bandcamp.com/album/death-at-the-gates-of-delirium - http://contaigeon.bandcamp.com/album/death-at-the-gates-of-delirium :

Ohh I listened to Lost Paradise a lot when I went on vacation this summer. It was spinning in my car stereo when I went to town to purchase food. Nick Holmes had balls back then. What a great growler. No fake processing there. It took it´s toll on him though. Paradise Lost actually cancelled their first two appearances in Denmark because of problems with Nick Holmes voice. It came to a situation where the band had a hard time finding a venue they could book when they came to visit Denmark on the tour for Shades of God. No one wanted them because the promoters were afraid that they would cancel again. So Paradise Lost first concert in Denmark ended up being in the now demolished Ungdomshuset on Jagtvej 69 ( Kim will know what I´m talking about) with Tiamat and if I remember correctly Therion. I know this because it was my first extreme metal concert. And what a blast. I was a major fan at the time. On the tour for Icon they visited Denmark 3 times as far as I remember. One concert in Odense ( which I know Kim attended) and one concert in Pumpehuset in Copenhagen where I attended. Later that year they would play as support to Sepultura on their tour for Chaos A.D. I went to that concert too. Actually mostly to see Paradise Lost.

Fuck yes! Love some Bolt Thrower.

Two others I adore are: Autopsy and Incantation.

The latter oozes darkness out of those angular riffs. Mortal Throne of Nazarene is one of my favourite regardless of metal sub-genre.

I´ve seen Bolt Thrower live twice. Once on the tour for The IVth Crusade and once on the tour for ...For Victory. The latter tour featured Martin Van Drunen on vocals as Karl Willets had quit the band fo the first time before that tour. The first show I went to was absolutely amazing. Lots of stagediving and moshing. The show was recorded and shown on MTV Headbanger´s Ball.
 
The show with Martin Van Drunen was also really great, but I twisted my ankle and had to be carried home by my brother. We were picked up miles from home in the middle of the night ( and it was a School night) by my mother who was furious, so all in all a succesful eveningLOL.
 
AutopsyThumbs Up Pretty big fan here too. I´ve got the picture vinyl version of Mental Funeral. Pretty cool artifact.

Believe it or not ( the violent artwork in mind) it was actually my grandmother who gave me "Acts of the Unspeakable" for Christmas back then ( together with Butchered at Birth by Cannibal Corpse):

I haven´t listened much to Incantation yet. Only a listen here and there. If we´re talking blasphemous anti-Christian death metal one of my favorites is Angelcorpse ( http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/angelcorpse.aspx?ac=angelc - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/angelcorpse.aspx?ac=angelc )

Covenant is a classic. It´s recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark you know. I used to know a guy who had an internship at Sweet Silence Studios as part of his final year in secondary School and he happened to be there while Morbid Angel was recording Covenant. Too bad he wasn´t a heavy metal fan. Those of us who were could only drool at the opportunity he had been given.

Yep Suffocation can be a mouthful. Extremely brutal death metal with a technical twist. I´d recommend listening to Pierced From Within first. The vocals are a bit more "human" on that one allthough still very brutal.
 
Discovering Autopsy is definitely recommended. Mental Funeral is my favorite:
.. Album Cover
 
Retribution for the Dead contains some early versions of songs that ended up on Mental Funeral, so if you like that one I´d go for Mental Funeral too. Severed Survival has a pretty different sound compared to the two other mentioned releases. Still a great one too IMO.

You know, musically, I think the songs differ from each other, but the vocals are very monotonous - I give you that. But it's got "Mass Obliteration" on it, which is one of my favorite Suffocation tracks. "Pierced from Within", which UMUR mentions, is pretty good, too - possibly better in some respects.

Still only listened very little to a couple of songs by Incantation. Sounded like they are very influenced by Morbid Angel ( and of course that´s a good thingSmile).
 
Regarding Angelcorpse they are also very influenced by Morbid Angel. Just imagine a less adventurous and more aggressive Morbid Angel and you´re just about there. Lead vocalist Pete Helmkamp used to play with American black metal act Order From Chaos, so it´s no surprise that the vocals are not deep growls but sneering caustic rasps. I absolutely love Pete Helmkamp´s vocal delivery. Spitting out blasphemies with conviction.
 
I´ve added some videos on the Angelcorpse page too: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/angelcorpse.aspx?ac=angelcorpse - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/angelcorpse.aspx?ac=angelcorpse

If you haven´t heard Carnage - Dark Recollections and Dismember - Like an Everflowing Stream yet I´d recommend taking a listen to them too to familiarize yourself with a couple of other classics in that style.

Thanks for the recommendations! So far I've been going by this YouTube clip that inspired me some time ago, and am planning to go through them all:

It seems to include those Dismember and Carnage albums too, so maybe those next!

Finished Left Hand Path earlier today and it was pretty good, next up is the Grave of which I have even higher expectations (based on the video). :-)

Swedish old school death metal had some of the best album art ever! Just look at those covers for Entombed, Grave, Dismember, and Carnage... amazing stuff! Clap

There were so many great artists in metal back in those days... Seagrave, Edward J. Repka... they just don't make 'em like that anymore! Heart

I've really got to make a point of going through this thread and checking this stuff out.  Probably old-school death metal is my favorite of all old-school metal.

Nothing too fancy: Death (Human and later), Carcass, Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation (though I only own Pierced, but will get more).

Besides checking out God Macabre, Sorcery and Gorement which are new discoveries to me I´ve been listening a lot to Dawn of Possession by Immolation lately:

It was not a favorite of mine back when it was released but some things take time to appreciate and I have to say it´s one of the more interesting albums from the early New York scene.

I've just bought "Subconscious" by Terra Tenbrae... and the two seconds I've heard so far are not promising (but in all fairness, it was only two seconds, and the loudspeakers suck).

Mostly legal I'd believe, though some could say it's against good taste. I doubt many demos are properly copyrighted so that they couldn't be shared in blogs etc. I find blogs like that useful but some don't.

The demos are probably not a problem, but the description says EPs too. That could pose a problem.

I think I'm with Vehemency on this one. For the most part, I doubt all of those demos are properly copyrighted to prevent blogs like this. However, it's likely that there's at least one illegal EP download on the site... I could be wrong though.

The first couple of Morta Skuld albums are awesome. Old school death metal with a certain sense of technical finesse.

Has anyone heard of Deface? They're a pretty good German death metal act that released 2 demos in the mid-90's before disappearing into oblivion.

I've added them to MMA: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/deface.aspx?ac=deface" rel="nofollow - http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/deface.aspx?ac=deface . Both demos are available for free legal download from the official website on that page.

That seems to happen a lot, bands give forward a good effort, than disappearing. Confused

Yeah, especially to a lot of death metal bands in the 90s. There were simply too many of them, and the market got saturated.

By the mid-nineties it was still only very few acts out of the legions of existing death metal acts that stood out from the crowd. The scene drowned itself. Just like the black metal scene did just a few years later.

You guys need to listen to more oldschool death metal.

Demented Ted - Promises Impure (1993)

Stupid name for a band but the riffs are fucking crushing and the vocals are killer.

Date Posted: 17 Jan 2011 at 1:50pm
As a total opposite to oldschool death metal, I've been spinning HATE's "Erebus" lately and find it a solid piece of pure aggression.



Have you heard it UMUR? I'll post my review tomorrow or the day after.

I´ve heard that name before, but I´ve never heard the music. They aren´t present here on MMA yet. I´ll do something about that shortly.

^ I wouldn't really consider Lamb of God to be a death metal act. They have some death tendencies, but I would put them in a thrash/groove/metalcore subgenre before death metal.

True, but they were the first real "death" anything band I was introduced to. That was the period when I detested everything with growling vocals. Then Opeth came into my life and my eyes were opened LOL

I like Death Metal, but I tend to lean toward the less popular acts like Sinister, Disincarnate, Dismember, Vader...
 
Though I do enjoy Entombed, Death and Suffocation...

I'm hopeful for the new Deicide... even though the title, To Hell With God, is pretty stupid. Doesn't look like they've stopped hating Christianity any less over the years! LOL

I was really into their debut last summer... killer old school death metal! Headbanger

I was quite the big Deicide fan back in the early nineties. I really liked the debut and still do to some extent. I remember when Legion was released too. I didn´t like it as much as the debut but I still enjoyed that one too. I saw Deicide on that tour and I gotta tell you that Glen Benton is probably one of the most unsympathetic frontmen I´ve ever witnessed. He ordered the crowd to beat up a poor guy who was wearing a t-shirt with a cross...and they did. Very nasty behaviour IMOErmm.
 
From Legion and onwards the albums have just declined in quality IMO, and today I find Deicide rather irrelevant. The first three albums are still worth getting though. All "Classics".

New Deicide will probably be much better then thier last album (which was pretty bad) but it wont be anything mind blowing.
