The original post

Posted by mz on 04.06.2013 at 16:53
It seems that lately, a new trend in Death Metal has started and bands like Portal,Impetuous Ritual, Abyssal, Mitochondrion, Ulcerate,Ævangelist ,Owl and Antediluvian (which I have yet to check out) managed to create some of the darkest forms of death metal. These bands, while not being exactly empty of technical or brutal elements, are mostly famous because of their harsh atmosphere and often have some non death metal inspiration (like post metal elements in Ulcerate's sound or ambient layers in the music of Mitochondrion,Ævangelist and Owl) . Since most of these bands appeased me and seemingly some other MSers around here, I though it would be appropriate to have an integrated topic about them to promote/discuss/suggest interesting band with similar sound. So, here it begins:what you think about this trend? Can we have a separate category in death metal realm in future for this trend? Also, new suggestions, both MS and non-MS bands, are appreciated.

Stumbled onto this accidentally. Seriously good old-school death with an almost stoner groove feel about it at times (on this track anyway). Amazing riffs.

Yep, shaping up very nicely indeed. Death metal is definitely outshining all others genres this year I'd say.

I really think Pseudogod should be included in this list, Maveth as well. Still I'm finding a hard time liking this new genre (new for me). I've tried listening to Portal alot since they're well known and everybody is talking about them, but I find them boring and can't even finish a whole song.
Mmm... I also think Lykathea is dark enough too, right?

I always found Lykathea to be one of the least dark death metal bands, quite possibly THE least. I'd even go so far as to call them uplifting. They even sing about hope and salvation apparently

But yeah, this song is totally uplifting in almost every way.

Yes they do have some cheerful riffs and melodies, yet I find them dark and bleak. Maybe they tried to sound happy and joyful but they failed.

Lykate lacks the suffocating and harrowing atmosphere of most of bands on these pages. Great band nonetheless

portal might be too filthy and their production is a little especial. I think that you should try impetuous ritual ( a more straight forward side project of portal with somehow normal production) and abyssal ( really well produced, which works for them pretty well)

True that Death is very strong this year and tons of them released as well but surprisingly I found Techdeath as well to have a lot of excellent releases.

On the dark waters though, Logos from Antediluvian was mindpwning.

Sounds like symphonic brutal death metal. Not really sure this fits on the dark side. More like the tongue in cheek side. Also sounds a little too whimsical to be called dark.

This band was introduced to me as a mixture of chaotic death metal like Portal, avantgarde/unorthodox BM like DSO and post-black like AAFCC or Alcest. Quite unique and should appeal to the post-death metal crowd. At least I hope so because I haven't fully listened to this yet but what I heard so far seems to back it up.

And then of course there's Asking Alexandria... For the record, nobody ever asked Alexandria anything ever again.

This is some really wierd mix. Still not sure how I like it.
Also, their logo reminds of this


One more thing: I never understood this post-death metal thing. Ulcerate is the only band I could associate with this term. Is post-death really a combination of death metal and post rock/metal?? or just a convention to categorize certain bands with somehow similar approach to mega-dense death metal?

Hi, my name is Flourishing. Nice to meet you:

A Momentary Sense Of The Immediate World [EP]
The Sum Of All Fossils
Intersubjectivity [EP]

Another band with some clear post influences (and some sludgy touches here and there)... Quite some post-hardcore on it too. One could also debate that some bands like Baring Teeth, Owl or Mitochondrion also have some of that post-death sounds.

I'm familiar with these bands and actually was thinking about Mitochondrion and Owl when I was writing my previous post as bands that post-death is over used to describe them. Admittedly, I totally forgot about Flourishing and this band also deserves post death tag (although I'm just slightly familiar with post hardcore) but in the case of the rest of bands you named, I don't really think that post metal/rock/hardcore etc elements are omnipresent enough. Also, what do you think about bands like portal, Aevangelist, Gorguts and Antediluvian being described by that term??
