    Particularly, uninterrupted by any fills, but slight variations / cymbal changes would work.

    I scoured my music library and the best I could come up with is the outro to Behemoth's The Satanist @ about 17 seconds (starts at about 4:16)



    I know some Derek Roddy-era Hate Eternal has some long stretches as well as Vital Remains. But None that I could find that was longer than the example above.

    Curious if you guys know of any others. I love the focus and tension that extended stretches of blast beats can give song.

    Does grindcore do much of anything besides a continuous blast from beginning to end?

    Just visit a construction site. You can have 8 hours of jack hammering - minus a lunch break.

    No, but grindcore songs are only like 12 seconds long.

    Example:

    Funnily enough, to my memory, the longest "blastbeat" i can recall is the 1st side of the 1st Ash Ra Tempel album...not metal, but krautrock...several minutes of tak-ka-tak-ka-tak-ka.

    Obscura has a 29s blast in A Transcendental Serenade at around the 4 minute mark.

    There are tons of parodies of grindcore that probably go longer than that, but, like, why does this matter to you anyway?

    Definitely some black metal stuff like Paysage d'Hiver or something. Jon from Discordance Axis/Gridlink posted some black metal band last year with a song that was like 20 minutes long and I swear the entire thing seemed like a nonstop 260bpm blastbeat but I can't remember who they were.

    I guess there are some fills in these songs but the two that come to mind immediately are

    Belphegor - Lucifer Incestus
    Mayhem - Buried by Time and Dust

    This thread just reminds me of how good Napalm Death's Utopia Banished is.

    Paysage D'Hiver is a good suggestion, very long tracks. That is the solo project of Wintherr who is also in the band 'Darkspace' which is similar and has intense unrelenting percussion.
    Try this, most of it, but especially the section from 1:44. I find this extremely beautiful music.

    everybody jerks off FETO or HC, but UB is where i think they really hit their stride.
