You know, stuff that makes your house shake when you crank up the volume/bass output. Im looking for anything with, simply, bass heavy production. that doesnt mean that the bass (guitar) has to be loud or the source of the bass, such as SUNN o))). Other examples would be Electric Wizard and Khanate. But also, bands like Dismember with reasonable thick production like on Like an Ever Flowing Stream although that's about as low as the bass should get. I'm NOT looking for bands that use bass drops. I mean if they do, its fine, but only if the production is THICK. Any genre is fine.

I, too, am interested in audible, at par with other instruments, bass guitars, which are lush and intricate, as if coating the whole music with their presence, yet remaining equal with other instruments in terms of the puissance of composition. As my whole collection of CDs is confined to the heavy metal music genre, I can name a few acts coming straight away to my head (including a band associated with my city): Slauter Xstroyes, Manowar, Satan, Iron Maiden, Lethal, Deadly Blessing, Cirith Ungol, Manilla Road (all the previous bands seem not to have authorized links to their music, but you can buy these CDs or vinyl records even without a second thought), Cauldron Born (check its "Crusader" - it was available for preview somewhere), and Blacksword (myspace.com/blackswordmetal).

I love listening to the Esoteric album The Pernicious Enigma with the volume cranked up. I'd say it has the thick bass heavy production you''re after.

The death metal band Pavor has some really awesome bass work.

Devoid of Grace (Death Metal from Russia) have an excellent bass tone and presence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blaPxTxNFvE The album was freely available from their website at one point, but I can't seem to find it now.

That was surprisingly good and the bass was nice ALTHOUGH it isnt thick sounding but I still like it.

Suffocation's Pierced From Within immediately came to mind. There's a few death metal bands that use a freakishly loud bass as well, Baphomet/Banished also comes to mind. And Incantation's debut album of course.

Dragged into Sunlight has a pretty outrageously profound mix of bass on 'Hatred for Mankind'

I've been all about this record lately, and it's beefy as fuck.

Suffocation does have some LOUD bass and especially thick production, it gets to a point were you can almost feel the bass, good rec

Iniquity - Serenadium
Possibly the most crushing low frequencies i have heard on a death metal production. A lot of Danish death metal seems to have a very strong low end but Iniquity and early Illdisposed always stood out.

I also remember Disastrous Murmur's - Rhapsodies in Red having a paticularly thick bass sound.

A fantastic band from Denmark named Gigandhi.

Think "Neurosis meets Godflesh meets some Hindu dude in the street"

Both this album and its predecessor are recorded entirely in bass with keyboards and lots of epic and intense parts into the song. Scarlet witching evil black is a bit more obvious with the bass tuning, but both albums are incredible pieces of Hellenic black metal and even without guitars they fucking destroy.

Also, there is something odd called Bassinvaders, but I would not recommend it.

Check out Incantation's EP Blasphemous Cremation. Some old tracks with an extremely bass heavy mix.

Rottrevore has a VERY heavy bass. OSDM.

Coffins is another extremely heavy death metal band.

well anything related to doom/sludge/ and stoner rock has a lot of bass
now Crowbar comes to my mind with their distorted guitars and loud bass

Beyond Creation is pretty bass heavy tech death. This might be an obvious recommendation though

A lot of OSDM-'revival' bands have what I would describe as a thick, heavy bass (which is something that I look for, too), though I'm of course not sure if you mean the same thing that I do. Anyway, I'd add my vote to Rottrevore and add Moondark, Disma, Corpsessed, and, most importantly, Undergang: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lWlUB-5E3I

Seconding Iniquity's first album, which was the first thing that came to my mind upon seeing this thread: http://youtu.be/irv7OmvVcqU
Funebrarum - Beneath The Columns of Abandoned Gods sounds like it was recorded in a massive subterranean cavern, one of my absolute favorite production jobs of all time: http://youtu.be/Fyrl4g-wpHY
Ahab - The Call of the Wretched Sea has some moments that are especially memorable because of the way the way the bass works in those songs, but it's probably not production specific like the other two examples are: http://youtu.be/OpGl7saUSig

The album Clandestine from Entombed. One of the best bass heavy albums ever made. Check out the song Stranger Aeons.

I don't really like too loud bass (my bass guitar is enough for me) but if you want to shake the ground, check out Bongripper.

Immolation's album Majesty and Decay is also trustworthy. Double bass kick ass.

A bit different, but check out Big Business "Here Comes the Waterworks"

A bunch of the songs are only bass and drums but there is some guitar sprinkled in, sounds like it should fit your req nicely.

A Danish band called Kolos might be something for you. It's a sludge act with only two members: A drummer and a bass player. Really loud and angry production
