I'll talk about that later, as I've only listened to it at about half volume, which isn't nearly enough to form an opinion, but I'll say that the vocalist isn't exactly my fav. Kinda sounds like he's ripping out his ******* desperately trying to pass a giant turd.


Right now, while I'll definitely do something more in depth on them soon, I just have to post something by Arkangel. Their Dead Man Walking album might just have just become my go-to album for straight-up brutality. I honestly can't think of another album as extreme as this. The simple, straightforward malevolence, and unnatural heaviness is just awe-inspiring. I challenge anyone, ANYONE to find me something more brutal. It defies words.

New entry in my top ten---hell, top five---metal albums easily, and possibly best hardcore album I've ever heard. Oh my ****ing GOD this thing just kills in a way that brutal death metal and grindcore can't touch with their tempo changes that, even when handled perfectly, undermine their vehemence. Arkangel's brutality >>>>> Pig Destroyer, Cyrptopsy, Mayhem, Gorgoroth, Marduk, and Suffocation... possibly combined.

Please, PLEASE find me something to destroy my ears like this album does, because I will worship it. Worship. As far as I know, this is the pinnacle of hateful, ear-destroying musical filth. I will listen to everything this band has ever done very soon, and likely bump them constantly for months to come. Mondo, don't let me down. Find me something that can piss my neighbors off more than this. I will be spamming whatever relevant threads I can to pass on the gospel of Arkangel. Be warned. Wpnfire needs to hear this band.

Bloodlet's vocals take some getting used to, everyone knows, I really didn't like them that much a while ago, but the musicians shred, especially that rhythm section.

I haven't heard of Arkangel until the other day via you, but have listened to their first album and find it really awesome. Here's my best shot at that request

All Out War is a band that I knew, and they're listed as Arkangel's most similar on the metal archives, both have a solid and similar thrash influence. Not all of their albums are that stellar either, but this one, Condemned to Suffer, would be a good recommendation.



Have you got around to listening to Ringworm yet? Not as brutal as Arkangel, but a big name in hardcore that would be worth checking



Best I've got for now. Check out Gehenna for ****s and giggles though, they combine hardcore/metalcore with black metal influences and you might dig it.

I've only heard Ringworm's first album, that one with Baphomet on the cover (I think that was Ringworm), but I remember it being suitably awesome.

Yeah, that's The Promise. That one's my favorite from them, but they're generally consistently good imo.

All three of these are a resounding, mother****ing, YES!!! And I'm glad I could be the one to introduce you to something for a change.

Don't mention it, Gehenna is my favorite of the bunch, local band for me.

More people should know that not all metalcore sucks. Good suggestions Mondo, I got some more metalcore to listen to!

Botch
Mathcore/Metalcore/Post-Hardcore
1993--2002




Need a break from the straight-forward assault of Arkangel and Ringworm? Try Botch. Mathcore to die for, these dudes combine the intensity of the truest metalcore with odd time signatures that break up the heads-down hardcore brutality, while still ripping like some mother****ers. At times they do some really weird things that remind me of Between the Buried and Me's experimentalism, but without being as arbitrary (and they're a much better straight-up mathcore band to boot). I love BtBaM, but Botch are smarter and know how to make their diversity work in the context of their overall sound. A true thinking man's metalcore band. Their We Are the Romans album is another that is shooting up the ranks of my all-time favorite metal albums. Simply brilliant.


Spoiler for Botch ****ing rules!:
