    Anything by Fleshgod Apocalypse. The non stop blast beats are the reason I can't sit through any of their songs despite the fact they check many boxes of my interests.

    If you like this one; check out their first LP from a couple of years ago. It's not easy listening but definitely one of the most genre-pushing mathy grind bands I've ever come across (especially last decade).

    I haven’t listened to them in over 15 yrs but I want to say Hate Eternal has stuff like OP is looking for.

    I'm not too up to speed with drum lingo, but I'm pretty sure most of Wintersun's 'Eternal Darkness', apart from beneath the solo and the slower parts, are mostly blast beats with minor fills in between.

    That's the first thing I thought of too. It's all blast beat up to 5:00, with just 2 very short fills up to that point.
    There's plenty of other similar stuff too but I can't remember specifically which song might've had the longest blast beats.

    yeah I'm sure something Burzum or Darkthrone did fits the bill

    Paysage D'Hiver and Darkspace are all drum machines so that may disqualify them depending on what OP is looking for

    Naw. Not on the selftitled demo or the split with Lunar Aurora, at least.

    first thing that comes to mind is the first necrophagist album (which was IIRC, a drum machine?)
    probably not long enough for this particular inquiry, but i very vividly remember thinking "holy hell, are these blast beats are ever going to stop"

    Interesting thread, some crazy endurance on display if those beats can be played live, but personally I always feel like blast beats are what the drummer plays between the interesting parts.

    If you're into psychobilly, Baddest of the Bad by Reverend Horton Heat has a pretty sweet part where they make a Gretsch hollow body through a Fender amp and an upright bass sound like Anthems-era Emperor.

    Satyricon's Scorn Torrent is about 3 min of straight blast, starting at 7:06

    Just make your own, go into any DAW to pull up any drum program, draw out kick, snare, kick, snare. Copy and paste. Increase temp/bpm. Record a guitar tremolo picking over it.

    there’s your longest song with a blast beat :shrug:

    Probably a song off the Panzer Division Marduk album.
