Murder Your Hangover With Metal

(Probably are plenty of more obscure discs I've never heard of that you could substitute for a few of the following, but a lot of them would likely require some journey into the web. Where people have a tendency to make their presence known. Not advisable when hungover. Best to stick to the whole alone thing and the sorts of albums that everyone should either have a physical copy of or at least in their comp music folders somewhere.)

1. Warning - Watching From A Distance
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Wolves In The Throne Room - Black Cascade

Top Brutal Death And Slam Albums 7/18/2012

Here are my favorite albums from the death metal subgenres in the title. Each offers something special and deserves attention for being in my view among the best I've heard. I listen to every brutal death or slam album I can find. These are, in my opinion, the best of the best.

Most are in recent years as the subgenres are relatively new. If a band could be categorized simply as death metal, I've generally left them off this list. These bands fit firmly within the BDM and/or Slam realms. This leaves out bands like Skinless, Pyrexia, or even Krisiun who all can be called BDM by some and just DM by others. This list should offer a doorway to some great bands and albums for new fans and old of the genres involved. It's hard to keep track of them all.

1. Bodysnatch - Insights Of A Rotten Theatre (2011). [BDM] This band offers everything from excellent guitar riffing, top-flight vocals, tight drumming, and creative songs, interludes, hooks, and structures. Elite production.
2. Abominable Putridity - The Anomalies Of Artificial Origin (2012). [Slam] Again some squeals or would be higher on my list. The drumming and kick-drum mix is pounding and probably the best in genre. The complex and tight guitar riffing is endlessly interesting. Elite production.
3. Deadly Remains - Severing Humanity (2012). [BDM] Along the lines of Pathology in vocal style and riffing formulas but simply done better. Creative accenting chord-work elevates the entire album. Very tight guitar playing and endless filthy riffs. Elite Production.
4. Begging For Incest - Orgasmic Selfmutilation (2012). [Slam] Would be higher save for the frequent pig-squeals, but offers filthy, creative riffs and top-notch slams with excellent sound among all instruments. Excellent production.
5. Pathology - Awaken The Suffering (2011). [BDM/Slam] A terrific mix of guitar riffing, cohesive drumming, and excellent low growls and gutterals. Filthy brutal sound with good bass, energy and technicality with some catchy hooks. Excellent production.

Top 150 Most Influential Metal Bands Of All Time

Please write your opinions on the list, if you have any. I'm not doing this list because I consider myself as an expert more than other people here, but because I think it is interesting to discuss things like this. I might be wrong in many cases, and I would only be glad if you correct me about any of my "mistakes", if you find any, or suggest other bands that deserves to be on the list. I have tried to only include bands that are fully accepted as metal, why many alternative bands are excluded.

1. Black Sabbath
2. Judas Priest
3. Iron Maiden
4. Motörhead
5. Venom

My Top 60 Favourite Death Metal Albums (including melodeath and deathrash)

I know some of the albums are more thrash than death, but I added them anyway, because I guess they could appeal to death metal fans too. Many of the albums are not so well-known, but I prefer them over the classics. If you have any other suggestions of underground albums you think I could enjoy based on my choices, you can suggest me.

1. In Flames - Clayman
2. The Crown - Eternal Death
3. Sororicide - The Entity
4. Pestilence - Malleus Maleficarum
5. Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness
