Well, it’s been sometime that I’ve started digging some great slam records out there. So, I’ve decided to fill in something about this brutal death metal subgenre in this blog too. So…

What the fuck is slam death metal anyway?

Slam death metal is a very straightforward, non-technical and minimal form of brutal death metal, that incorporates and emphasizes ‘slam’ passage – a variety of a very catchy breakdown that is similar to hardcore breakdown (but not exactly) and which helps to carry out a riff, with tempo changes multiple times within a song.

Check this song and you’ll know what I’m talking about.


Condemned – “Desecrate the Vile”
Devourment – “Molesting the Decapitated”
Down From the Wound – “Agony Through Rituals of Self Purification”
Goretrade – “Ritual of Flesh”
Human Rejection – “Decrepit to Insanity”
Infertile Surrogacy – “Postulate of Mass Genocide”
Malodorous – “Amarenthine Redolence”
Pus Vomit – “Degrade the Worthless”
Septycal Gorge – “Erase the Insignificant”
Viral Load – “Practitioners of Perversion”
Vomit Remnants – “Indefensible Vehemence”
Vomit the Soul – “Apostles of Inexpression”

    A lot of the albums on the list leave me a bit cold, though when the riffs and arrangements are there, I really like slamming death. I’d recommend—
    Great songs/arrangements: Dysentery Internal Devastation
    Best riffs: Begging for Incest — Orgasmic Selfmutilation
    Kraanium — Post Mortem Coital Fixation
    Abominable Putridity — Anomalies of Artificial Origin (though this is borderline technical dm)
