Not Heavy, but Super-Heavy (Revised Again)

I’ve been posting about how regular death metal isn’t shocking me anymore and how I’ve gone super-heavy. Yet as I look back on it, I forgot some key albums, and half of these bands don’t do lead solos (it ought to be a law). So now I’m trying to phase out most of the bands that don’t do leads (some are just too brutal not to include), and I think I’ve got a better list this time. So here goes:


  1. Reek of Putrefaction – Carcass
  2. Deicide – Deicide
  3. House by the Cemetery – Mortician
  4. Mortal Massacre – Mortician
  5. Gore Metal – Exhumed
  6. Slaughtercult – Exhumed
  7. Church of the Five Precious Wounds – Repulsive Dissection
  8. Cut Open the Aberration – Repulsive Dissection
  9. Panzer Division Marduk – Marduk
  10. Generation of Hate – Dismembered Fetus
  11. Mutilation of God – Dismembered Fetus
  12. Feasting on Blood – Severe Torture
  13. Misanthropic Carnage – Severe Torture
  14. Infesting the Exhumed  – Lust of Decay
  15. The Ultimate Incantation – Vader
  16. Cross Species Transmutation – Malignancy
  17. Assembled in Blasphemy – The Ravenous
  18. Through the Cracks of Death – Abscess
  19. Wrath of War – Thornspawn
  20. Sanctified by Satan’s Blood – Thornspawn
