    These guys here know what's up. :hbang:

    There is a .... ton of great modern death metal out there, you just have to sift through all of the gimmicky stuff to find it.

    You know what? I'd even go as far as to say that death metal is the best it's ever been at the moment. There are some truly amazing bands out there who are really pushing the boundaries in terms of songwriting ability and technicality.

    I think the biggest problem now days is what you see marketed. Back in the day when death metal was fresh the bands that were being marketed as death metal were bands who were paving the way and not trying to be as edgy and gimmicky as possible (don't get me wrong, there were a few of those too). It was a new genre so the quality was much better back then because they weren't following a template, they were making one instead. There are plenty of bands now days who are making their own as well, you just have to be really willing to look and not just assuming that whatever YouTube classifies as death metal is what modern times have to offer.

    Also, props again to the dude who said Horrendous. Easily my favorite death metal band in the last few years. It's not even overly technical music, the song writing is just nuts.

    You just don't know what to listen to.



    But OP, listen to the Nails album Abandon All Life. It's more hardcore than DM, but it's as brutal.

    Just got my head blown off by Dead Congregation last night.

    If you ever get a chance to see them live, don't miss it.

    Some cool nostalgic sounding music posted here! Nice!

    But is it just me or does growling sound like playing smurf voices really slow?


    No matter how much energy playing the instruments; when the growling starts I kinda find it hard to take seriously.


    Oh wait...! I'm getting old...

    ITT: some tr00 DM elitists come out of the woodwork to demonstrate their elitism to other metalheads.

    Technical death metal from 2016 that isn't over the top wank you year nowadays. And as a bonus, the vocals sound like Chuck's from Death.

    Yes, I think their music defines balance in heaviness and still retains being musical.

    I dig Gorguts till I get lost in Obscura album.

    I love Necrophagist, Obscura but sometimes their music is just too damn technical and tiring to listen to (play more so).

    Damn I really hope I get to see them someday. They are an outright favorite of mine right now in almost every aspect of their sound. Definitely jealous of everyone that gets to a show! Hopefully someday they have enough following to get a US tour together.
