Hi guys,

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

I really want to listen to some extremely heavy and fast metal. Bands like Nile and Suffocation aren't really doing it for me - I want something harder and heavier than them. It doesn't have to be death metal, it can be grindcore, black metal, whatever.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Depending on your definition of heavy. To me heavy are slow chromatic riffs (Slow and low), like slam. So, the whole slam/brutal death metal genre may be for you:

Devourment

Torsofuck

If you're having trouble finding material beyond Nile and Suffocation then perhaps you're newer to metal. That's fine. Have you tried grindcore? Try REPULSION, and TERRORIZER's album - world downfall. For really brutal death metal try CRYPTOPSY's first two albums. That's insanely heavy. So is a new band called DEFEATED SANITY. They're super dense, and have a really technical edge. They're absolutely brutal, and leave you gasping for breath. So is the band GORGUTS, who are extremely technical, brutal and godly. Also there's old school thrash metal, which has very intense albums. Try MORBID SAINT, DEMOLITION HAMMER, DARK ANGEL, MAGNUS - Scarlet Slaughterer, DEVASTATION - Idolatry, INQUISITOR - Walpurgis-Sabbath of Lust. They're all pretty insane. So are bands like VIO-LENCE, and RIGOR MORTIS. If you want really brutal black metal, go for BLASPHEMY, and one of my personal favorites, the only material ever released by the band thus far, the self titled demo of the band GOAT SEMEN. It's absolutely insane black metal. It's like sarcofago meets blasphemy and has a duel!

Let's not forget KREATOR's album - pleasure to kill. Kreator used to kick ass, but now they produce shitty, over polished, cheesy garbage.

Also SADISTIC EXECUTION, and NUCLEAR DEATH. If you want really relentless violent music that's like a well planned assault on your ears, turn to these.

Anaal Nathrakh, personally, I consider to be intense as opposed to conventionally "heavy", but it might fit into your paradigm of heavy;

hmmmm, what about Blood Revolt? It's kind of strange - while the instruments come along in a black/death/"war" metal
way, the vocals are more or less clean (singing, manic screams, wailing etc, whispers) with occassional black metal snarls.
A great combination and sth not heard very often as well as just pure heavy.

Yes, Cryptopsy, definitely check out None So Vile. Terrorizer World Downfall and Repulsion Horrified are really good too.

Try Grindcore like Nasum, Gadget, Birdflesh, and Rehumanize (This is Christian grindcore but it is just as agressive and heavy as the three previous bands) , or go for technical death metal like Origin, Monumental Torment, and Entrails Eradicated (ultra fast and brutal, and tons of sweep-picking). Check out Henker as well. I also recommend Gammacide and Fastkill for insane thrash.

I annoys me so much when people call Anaal Nathrakh "heavy". A much more fitting term would be "violent"...nothing heavy about them.

I thought a couple songs on Vanitas were pretty heavy (Todos Somos Humanos for one), but I have to agree with you. Anyway, the heaviest band I can think of is Gojira, but if you want something more in the Brutal/Slam/Technical Death metal vein I can't really help you there.

Sorry, I find this to be a strange comment.

How are Annal Nathrakh not "heavy"??

I guess it all depends on your definition of the word, but to me, pretty much almost all black, death and grind bands have at least SOME "heaviness" to them.

Most metal does have at least A LITTLE heaviness...but the more "extreme" genres almost always do, even if the bands happen to suck at what they are playing, and generally, I would consider most metal music that sounds "violent" to also be "heavy".

I can't figure out what you mean here because I have a hard time imagining anyone saying "yeah, I know this one EXTREMELY "violent" sounding metal band, but they don't sound "heavy" AT ALL...

That would just sound like a very odd statement to me personally.

As for the OP, I think "heavy" is just too broad a term, but since you said you are cool with it being of any style, then I'll just give you bands of different styles all of which I personally consider to be "heavy" but each in their own different ways:

Heavy War metal/black/death---I've been getting a lot into this stuff lately. Proclammation, Revenge, Axis of Advance, Anima Damnata, Goat Penis, Arch Goat, Order From Chaos, Conqueror, all great heavy violent pissed off bands.

Heavy Gore Grind/Grinding Death Metal--Lord Gore is very heavy, The Berzerker also, although they are a bit more industrial death with some grind maybe

Heavy Death Metal--Disgorge (U.S.), Goratory, Decapitated, Broken Hope, Infester

Heavy grindcore--XXX Maniak, Gadget, Cretin, Circle of Dead Children, Pig Destroyer, Nasum,

Heavy Doom metal/Doom Death---Burning Witch, Winter, Thergothon, Disembolwment, Skepticism

That's really what's coming to mind right now for me.

A few grind bands with really unhinged and aggressive vocalists:

Parlimentarisk Sodomi
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBx9Szei0cE

Gridlink and Discordance Axis feature the same vocalist jon chang:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KZbdGCIHAU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-DCfg8yGhU

Swarrrm Is a little less heavy because of the tendencies towards unconventional melodies but the sheer insanity of the vocalist makes up for it:

If you're looking for slow, suffocating, heavy and kind of drony music you might like P.H.O.B.O.S.

You've to decide what sort of sound you're after. 'Fast' doesn't necessarily mean 'heavy'. If you want really heavy stuff then check out doom bands like The Wounded Kings, Reverend Bizarre, Ahab (as IanThrash mentioned earlier), YOB, Electric Wizard, Cathedral (early, Endtyme and their newest and last offering), Sleep, Crowbar etc.

I hate when people misunderstand the term of heavy. Heavy is not violent, or extreme. Black metal is not heavy, its raw, atmospheric and probably extreme. Thrash metal is heavy, death metal is heavy, and probably slam death metal is heaviest of them all. Anaal Nathrakh is extreme, violent. Not heavy. I love Anaal Nathrakh but they are not heavy, really.

A few mentions of the borderline black/death war metal, and nobody suggests Singapore's Impiety? "Asateerul Awaleen" is one if the filthiest, most extreme albums around. Sarcofago vocals meet Blasphemy's instrumentation, but longer songs.
In a similar vein, Mexico's Morbosidad as well.

Thanks for all the suggestions, sorry, I may be a bit late in replying!

I quite liked the slam stuff, and those Torsofuck lyrics crack me up (even though I can't recognise them in the song)! That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Anaal Nathrakh were also pretty good.

I'll give Impiety a listen. I used to live in Singapore, and it's not the first place I'd think of when I think of really extreme metal (though the country seemed to get some really cool concerts just after I left, as one would expect)!
