I have a friend who says he likes the music in death metal but he strongly dislikes the extreme vocals. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some instrumental only death metal bands for him? I tried to think of some but none came to mind! (He's already listened to Opeth, who aren't totally instrumental but you know what I mean). Thanks.

I know but that's about as close to enjoying more extreme music as he's come. Amon Amarth are an exception for him too, I suppose because of how melodic they are and because the vocals aren't as extreme. But I'm looking for some pure death metal that is only instrumental.

if Amon Amarth are ok already, try giving him other melodic stuff using clean vocals
can recommend the Synestesia album Feeniks, the first Red Descending album, also the latest Kataklysm albums are rather close to Amon Amarth
also he might like the Arghoslent album Hornets of the Pogrom
can"t really recommend other bands/albums, as i don"t listen to much melodic death
don"t really remember any instrumental bands either...
hope it helps

Thanks man I'll mention those bands to him. Though I think he's interested in moving onto heavier stuff (he seems to already like most melodic dm) and is just finding the vocals not to his taste at all.

Thanks a lot. I've linked those two bands to him and I'll see what he thinks. Might even listen to a bit of Sleep Terror myself now - that was some good shit!

glad to have helped
well, those have those vocals but aren"t that extreme, so he can get used to the vocals, then he"ll have an easier time finding more extreme bands
and if it"s an issue with growls only and not shout/scream then grindcore might be the answer

Really good band. Haven't listened to them much but I remember them on Metal Archives a few months ago and thought what a retarded name they had. Thankfully the music was much better than their name suggested.

Frostland Tapes by Darkthrone includes an instrumental Goatlord. It's not a regular black coffee though.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that was closer to something like black metal? The sound quality, the flow, the atmosphere, the vocal style, pretty much everything.

Actually I'd say it's this record where the black metal influence has completely gone. The first couple of albums have a bits of pieces of black metal influence in them but I didn't hear any in this one myself.

They are incredible. I actually grew up with them two. They are working on some new material right now.

Maybe I'm on crack, but stuff like April Ethereal set up an atmosphere for me like "False Dawn" by Drudkh. That and in an interview I heard Mikael say "With the third record, My Arms, Your Hearse, it was a little more black metal" or something along those lines. If you'd like I could probably find it.

Got it. It's at about 2:13 in.

In my experience members of the actual bands in question are the people that get their own genres wrong more than anyone else. I don't get any black metal in My Arms. Never have, never will. Only a few blackened screams and a somewhat hazy production, which isn't enough to make it black metal for me.

I guess that makes sense. To me, Opeth has always been in between everything anyway. They have a mix of all kinds of progressive metal, folk music, melodic death metal, atmospheric black metal, and more in each one of their albums. I think that they're not just one thing, they borrow from too many different styles to have any of their work to be labelled as a single one of those styles. If I was going to pick a single term, then I guess I'd go with extreme progressive metal?

I don't know, I'm just saying that, to me anyway, My Arms sounds like melodic death meets black metal meets progressive. Again, I could just not know what I'm talking about, but there's a certain ambiguity to genre labels anyway, isn't there? There is a distinct difference between black metal and death metal, but then again I can also say that there's a distinct difference between death metal from Morbid Angel and death metal from Death. Where do you start drawing lines and making distinctions in sound? Doesn't each band sound different anyway (usually)?

Anyway, I'm just saying it all depends on the perspective of the observer, though it is indeed helpful for all of us to be on the same page and have the same distinctions between genres.

I can't think of anything instrumental which hasn't already been mentioned but if there is one album with vocals I would suggest it would be Disillusion's Back To Times Of Splendor. That album is largely responsible for my own introduction to death metal. Though whether he likes it or not will depend on how much he likes prog metal I suppose.

Pretty sure he likes prog metal. I'll mention that band to him too, thanks. Although in all honesty I'm beginning to think that the more extreme genres of metal may never appeal to him, so no point in forcing it if it's really not to his taste.

Also you have a fucking awesome avatar

I wasn't used to harsh vocals at the time but the ones Disllusion use on that album are a nice mix of clean and some slightly harsher ones. I'd guess he wouldn't find them too difficult to get into as they certainly aren't your typical death style vocals and I consider them as a sort of in between harsh and clean.

Haha thanks! I love Black Books, funniest show I've ever seen, and Dylan's standup is hysterical.

For me, I always thought MAYH was the most "blackened", if you could call it that. Still Life to me was when the black metal sounding stuff was pretty much gone, and had the most death metal.

It's hard to find instrumental death metal bands. After all, the deep guttural growls are a core part of death metal.
However, there may be enough bands that have made a few instrumental songs so that a decent playlist of instrumental "death metal" can be constructed.
Suggestions are:

Fortunately, Nile has a habbit of including some of their tracks wihtout vocals as bonus tracks to their albums.


Chimaira has more than once ended their album with an instrumental piece



Enjoy
