I'm looking for something with aggressive and dense riffing. The best example would be the fast, death metal sections of Deathspell Omega like this:

and

The intro riffs to this

Note that I'm specifically looking for something that's on the low-er end of the guitar, which means I'd like to avoid the high pitched weedle stuff that you hear in bands like Origin or Brain Drill, however chaotic they are at times. Generally, the noisier and harder it is to figure out what's being played the better. Dissonant and or odd time stuff like Discordance Axis works as well.

Get on the Jute Gyte hype train: http://jutegyte.bandcamp.com/track/at-t ... rtile-land

Also, Encenathrakh basically made all other BDM obsolete: https://encenathrakh.bandcamp.com/releases

This is the ultimate chaotic, hard to hear death metal album for me. It isn't just blast beats and random noise, which is an easy cop out when bands try to make something hectic sounding. This is some good shit.

Also, Jute Gyte kinda sucks. Derail that hype train as quick as possible.

Not crazy about Jute Gyte either, the breakbeats/trap/whatever the fuck aspect is an immediate turn off.

Wormreich is my favorite ultra-chaotic metal band. American black metal with chops but not distractingly technical...just crazy fast and in your face good shit. A lot like Bestia Arcana who are also amazing. Also seconding Svartidaudi.

While they sound silly, war metal and caverncore are filled with that.

Some of these may be suggested here but here we go:

Dark, suffocating,gritty tech death: Ulcerate, Gorguts

Less technical but still crushing black/death: Phobocosm, Mitochondrion, Abyssal

'War' metal/bestial black metal (sloppy almost grindcore-like): Tetragrammacide, Revenge/Conqueror (they are pretty much the same band)

Also I found this hellish blackened death-doom band: Verbum

Can't go wrong with Revenge or any war/bestial black metal band along those lines as IamDBR mentioned. Black Witchery and Archgoat come to mind.

Youtube: show


Check out Magnanimvs too, they're a local band that plays this really chaotic, ultra-fast and cavernous death metal. If you don't hate Trey Azagthoth soloing, you'll like them.

Youtube: show


You might also wanna check out Diocletian, pretty chaotic, gritty and they don't go wanking around like Origin.

You need some Crimson Massacre in your life. Similar bands like Blasphemer, Ingurgitating Oblivion, Lecherous Nocturne, and Orgone might also be interesting.

I fail to understand how war metal bands are chaotic, btw - nothing entropic about slamming on power chords loudly. Fuck bands like Revenge, they're far too predictable to be dense or chaotic.

Even with all his fluffy prog love, I really hope some day someone manages to talk Brun into some death metal nostalgia again, both Darkthrone and Molested were such huge losses for the death metal scene, and only with Darkthrone we got something equally good after the stylistic shift. Blod-draum is amazing and absolutely unique to this day in what it does.

Oh, yeh, Blod-draum is awesome. Also worth mentioning Liers in Wait while we're at it - very chaotic stuff.

Btw not to hijack the thread but is there any stuff similar to Portal that has that Ehnahre-style (besides Ehnahre) art student sipping latte at Starbucks image more than the war metal or whatever aesthetic Portal-like bands usually have?

They're not as chaotic as Ehnahre and may therefore be inapplicable, but Flourishing fit the bill.

Chaos Echœs, Epistasis, Geryon... Maybe even worth mentioning Encenathrakh, considering that the guy from Flying Luttenbachers is involved in it. Mick Barr-core is definitely artsy and chaotic but I dunno if it's the sort of thing you're looking for if you want stuff like Ehnahre.

Nefas from Italy perhaps? Their newest album is like a very strange alternate direction brutal death metal could've gone as opposed to the chug thug and tekdeaf fare we have nowadays. A lot of fragmented tremolo lines inspired by a mixture of earlier US and Scandinavian death metal broken up by chaotic collapsing percussive patterns. There's actually a bit of melody here but it's incredibly minimized, something songs build up to before they're violently torn away from again. Think of it like a simpler but far more feral Crimson Massacre.

Their 2002 debut is good too but not as noisy.

I don't have a link (none on youtube) but you can find them on Bandcamp - check out ALTARAGE and their album 'Nihil.' It BLEW me away, some seriously crushing hellish death metal. Some tracks feel as if they are just there to assault your senses. If I can recommend anything, its that.

The phrase "Dense, chaotic metal" fits Order from Chaos's "Stillbirth Machine" album very well:
