Death Metal Black Metal UNDERGROUND Metal Discussion Thread

edited December 2019 in Other Music
Just wanted to start a thread to discuss favorites new and old. This thread is all about UNDERGROUND metal. You can discuss Korn, RATM, Pantera, Metallica, Slipknot, and Tool in their own threads. No offense to those bands, but this is more about "extreme" underground metal. Some more established bands that are probably familiar to you, if you're an underground metal fan: Death, Bathory, Entombed, Darkthrone, Autopsy, Obituary, Death Angel, Behemoth, Possessed, Carcass, Venom etc... What are your favorites?







1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
Nothing since then. I suck.
2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights

  • Here’s a flyer I made for a little soirée we threw in LA Jan.3,1986. Lots of Bay Area representation here. I think Death Angel’s drummer was about 14 at that time. Pretty wild night. I can’t believe it was 34 fucking years ago...

    4 of these bands had a decent following.  Never heard of Possessed though?

    My man has seen so many cool friggin bands I am jealous...

    That is a rad flyer. Would have loved to have been at that show. Zed's records was a great store.

    Possessed are legends and they just came out with a new album. This is their most legendary record. Sorry I couldn't embed it, but for some reason I can't get the share link on my computer at work.

    Yeah I don't recll them at all and I thought I knew a bunch of these bands back then.

    I guess a few slip through the cracks?

    I'd like to see a battle of the Angels tour w  Morbid Angel, Death Angel and Dark Angel w special appearance by Chris Angel.

    I had an lp from them. They were all covered in blood. I should have kept it, but didnt give it the love it deserved. I love primus. Even though they suck.
  • Dont feel bad. I sold my first press of Seven Churches a few years ago. 
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 1,416
    I think thats the one I traded in too. I like to pass it on.

    I love all the old classics. Venom, Bathory, Entombed, Napalm Death, Disfear, and even more so hardcore and punk!

  • I got to see Neurosis as a headliner w Converge supporting.

    Converge killed but Neurosis was not my bag.

    Their songs would build up and never "drop".  They just moved on to another buildup.  You kept waiting and waiting but it never came...

    ^^^saw clutch in the 90s and I felt the same way. Never took me to where I hoped to go. Lots of clutch lovers so maybe it was a one off show and I should try again...30ish years later. Damn.

    Now for whatever reason I never got into Clutch in the 90's.  No idea why...  I hear their music and it kills.  Don't understand How I missed them because it is a sound I like.
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 1,416
    Never too late I guess. They have a deep sabbath type groove.

    Back to death metal OP...demolition hammer. Septic death...always liked corrosion of conformity...Not really death metal but heavy.

    I saw that tour and love both bands, so I was stoked. I feel like both bands are challenging. The first time I heard Neurosis I was on the fence, but got into Eye of Every Storm, since I was writing a review for a zine. When I first heard Converge's Jane Doe I was thinking "WTF is going on here?". I compare understanding and appreciating Converge to learning a new language. Once I became more fluent, it opened up a whole new world of extreme music, for me. Listening to You Fail Me, right now.

    Difference between the two bands is one is a hardcore band and the other is Black Metal.

    Glad you got into Converge.  The two albums you mentioned are masterpieces and should be enjoyed.

    Now, have you ever got into Pig Destroyer?

    Sampled them a long time ago, but it didn't click at the time. I will give them another shot when I remember.

    Some blackgaze ( black metal and shoegaze) bands that are good listening. They all start very gazey and then BM vocals kick in. Yes, there is also Deafheaven, but I mostly only enjoy their first record. Of these three bands, Wolves in the Throne Room are more black metal than gaze.

    I need to get some stuff from Napalm Death. So many bands, so little time. 
    I have high expectations for the new Carcass record. Hopefully, they are met.

    Are you asking what year did it come out? I think 2019, but released on vinyl 2020. The violin parts lift it up. Don't know if I'd wear a shirt that said "Weeping Sores", though. =)
