Leaps and bounds. I disliked their early material. They've really come into their own on the last two albums though. Their music has more progressive and melodic elements than before, while somehow becoming even more brutal at the same time. Try songs like The Carbon Stampede, Your Disposal, Lifestalker and Kingdom of Tyrants for a taste of what CD does now.

I'm currently in a metalcore phase, so I won't be checking them out today at least, but what would you compare their current sound to? It's hard to get a handle on what you're talking about, but I am definitely intrigued and will be listening to that album pretty soon (my metalcore phase is concerned with only the most brutal of bands ATM, so I may very well transition into death metal soon if I hear of anything that interests me, such as this.)

78. Homewrecker - Worms and Dirt - (2012)




Quite possibly the best extreme metal album I've heard which has come out in the past few years. It combines modern (non-Hot Topic) metalcore with death metal brutality and the chaotic energy of grindcore/crust punk. Blast 'n' grind sections seamlessly merge with devastating breakdowns that set themselves apart from deathcore bands by being based around honest to god riffs, rather than nondescript chugging. All set off by what I guess you could call post-death metal hardcore screaming (i.e. not growling, but far too ugly to compare to Black Flag, Madball, or even Hatebreed.)

The thing I love about this band (apart from everything else about them) is that their attack is simple, primitive, and goes straight for the throat, same as any other extreme metal band, but their influences keep them sounding eclectic. Why every band doesn't combine metal and punk in such a way I really don't know, but Homewrecker show a lack of genre purity that makes many extreme metal bands just as dedicated to aggression seem irrelevant. Still, this isn't experimental by any stretch of the imagination, just intuitive.

If there's any justice, this band will soon be knocking critically acclaimed boots with other first tier extreme metal bands.

Edit: After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that this band is the modern successor to Terrorizer, and they are just as awesome. They also have two albums that rule, as opposed to just one.

79. Flourishing - The Sum of All Fossils (2011)



So this is basically the absolute best fusion of metal and post-hardcore ever. An atmospheric blend of early tech-death a la Immolation and Pestilence with Fugazi-esque melodies and noise rock and sludge metal. It's still death metal above all though. I guess it falls into the weird group of bands like Gorguts, Gigan, Ulcerate and whatever, but this sounds nothing like anything else.

If you wanna make extreme metal/post hardcore, do it right and take after this album

80. Blasphemy - Fallen Angel of Doom... - (1990)




A primitive, brutal, dense, unrelenting blast of black/death/grind. If you like death metal, but feel it's too polished, like black metal, but don't dig the dissonance of Norwgian BM, and like grindcore, but wish they'd add some more extreme metal influences, then Blasphemy is your band. There's not a single thing pretty about this band, but they ****ing rip.

They also inspired their own sub-sub-genre of black/death metal known as "war metal", populated by such awesome, sonically regressive bands as Black Witchery, Bestial Warlust, and Diocletian. I'll probably have to make posts for each of those bands too.


Spoiler for ****ing ****, dude!:

81. Marduk - Panzer Division Marduk - (1999)



Note: So far as I know, Marduk aren't associated with Nazism. I'm assuming they took their name from the Sumerian god Marduk, and there also happened to be a Panzer Division Marduk in WWII.


Many black metal purists don't like this album, as A.) it's heavy influenced by death metal, and B.) it has relatively clean production. These people suck, as this is quite possibly the most intense black metal album I've ever heard, and it gives even the most brutal of death metal bands a run for their money. I'd call this war metal, but whereas most of those bands have pretty muddy production, this album has a much fuller sound, which really lets the aural assault hit you with full force. All the songs sound the same, but who the **** cares?

Extra points for the greatest song name in all of music: "Christraping Black Metal". Honorable mention: "Fist****ing God's Planet".


Spoiler for Rape that Christ, dudes!:

82. Necro Schizma - Erupted Evil demo - (1989)




Imagine if Hellhammer had recorded an entire demo of those slow, doomy songs like "Satanic Rites" that they would explore with more skill in Celtic Frost. That's pretty much what Necro Schizma did. Ultra-heavy and primitive, but without being droney, these dudes are the sound of first-wave black metal played at a snail's pace, with the brutality updated to be on par with late-eighties death metal. Quite possibly the first true death/doom band, and one of the few to never play with any speed even approaching mid-pace.

Another thing I love about these guys is that their abrasive, lo-fi production gives their music the evil atmospheric vibe of black metal. However, unlike black metal, the slow pace of the songs allows for that atmosphere to really descend into the spaces between notes like the fetid stench of the grave. This is a truly fugly, low-rent recording, only to be listened to by those who love death/doom with a passion. I'd say too bad they never released an actual album, but I doubt they could have built on this sound without ruining it to some extent.


Spoiler for Dude... **** yeah...:

84. KORN-S/t (1994)




Korn.... you would ask your self hey this is metal Korn isn't metal there not and they would tell u that themselfs. BUT and this moment in time and this album they were pretty heavy. The sound of this album could best be described has a mix of alot of stuff. To me it sounds like tribal rhythmatic hip hop drums Dual down tuned Guitars and alot of Click Bass.

fav track Predictable

85. BRUJERIA-Matando Güeros (1993)





Mexican Metal Terrorist IMO could really best describe this band of lunatics. Matando Güeros or Güero" is a Mexican-Spanish slang term for a white or light skinned/haired person. The album talks mostly about killing white Americans and border crossing. SO yeahhhh this album is relentless non stop thrash rif***e from beginning to end . I really liked this band when i was young cus this was like the first Spanish speaking band that i discovered.

fav track Misas Negras (Sacrificio III)

this vid was great the rip up some talk show
