    Editors Introductory

    This guide is to educate other users which are into death metal but are either just into the new wave of death metal (so like slam death metal) or are just getting into this massive expansive genre. This will take you on a journey from the start to the end of Floridian death metal scene. All bands mentioned are worth the listen and also worth the odd CD buy to fit into your collection.

    The Odyssey


    The journey begins in the heart of Florida, the beating arteries of death metal. You may have heard of a lot of these bands, but everyone is deserved to have recognition with the start of the fourth phase (depending on the way you look at it) in the family tree.

    The first doesn’t come as a surprise. This is of course the legends Death who formed in 1984 with the general idea of trying to speed up the scene and also put in more deep vocals. These were of cause the death growl. This has obviously progressed over the years into a more guttural vocal sound. …
  • Weekly Edition: The Fourth Hysterectomy

    Editors Introductory

    So, this thing is working well now, I can see the big differences from the pre-weekly editions group charts to how they look today. Still a few anomalies here and there but these will be squeezed to the last one after these artists below pound your ears!

    This time just the artists below, haven’t had tiem to put anything up. But next week I might do something extra like a poll or something. Also, any suggests for names for the weekly editions would be fantastic. Eg. The Fifth Atrocity etc.

    Week Main Listening: 23rd – 30th November

    Fourth Edition

    1) Defeated Sanity , You all know this band by now. The Prelude to Tragedy the first and full most, most epically produced guttural slamming death you could hear, with that living up to their name again with an album which blew my mind. That is indeed “Pslams of the Moribund”, this album slams, pounds, blasts and thrash riffs all the way down to a nail. Markus Keller was a bit dry with his vocals but now they have got rid of him…
  • The Weekly Edition: The Damnation (Edition 1)

    Editors Introductory

    Now in this edition we have the strange, the classic and the known. These slam bands are brutal, sick and a must have in your collection. If you’re already into the slam scene quite a lot you will probably know all of them, if you’re new…well listen to them!

    Secondly, I am trying to get my group to listen to each of these (possible) new artists that week it comes out.
    So if you know or don’t know these five sickos below get them or reach for your CD collection and play them this week. Starting date for this week is: 2/11/08 and it ends on the 9th at 12.00pmGMT. Then I know how much users are enjoying this edition from my group, also I urge to comment any complaints, possible improvements and praises after reading each edition.

    Finally, with each edition will come download links for a particular album from each of the artists, but please don’t just download the artists listen to it and decide to like it and not buy the album…It is really painful to see fans…
