I don't understand wiggers. I do not comprehend their thought process, nor their fashion sense. And I don't think I ever will.

1) LOL at anyone owning a fitted cap being a "wigger"

2) LOL at anyone seriously using the term "wigger". If you're like 14 and you don't know any better sometimes I'd give people passes in life but at some point if you pretend to be an adult, I mean, c'mon.

Now don't get me wrong, I love slam, but I really, really wish the gore theme would go die in a fire. Can we get some slam bands with like a power metal theme or something? Is such a thing even possible?

Apparently the highest note I can hit is A7 bordering on B7. My friend said that was really high for a guy.

NEW ENABLER TRACK

Easily the best non-metal heavy band featuring a (once :grumble:) former member of Fall Out Boy out there. FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU FOREVER!

I'm imagining epic slam to sound like Nile's atmospheric moments, except considerably simplified and made more repugnant by production and Cephalotripsy vocals.

So, pretty shitty and insubstantial; fun for novelty value maybe.

I can't believe this many people popped up and declared they like slam at all, everything I've heard has zero listenability for me. I guess it has cross appeal for brutal death fans, but again that's a genre that I just can't understand the appeal of. Really it's hard for me to tell the difference.

Appartently Epicardectomy's album has 7 seconds of not slam, and Cephalotripsy has four non slam riffs or something. So there are bands that get close.

Yeah, those bands are pretty rare though. I find that without anything to build towards the slams or create tension, it sort of loses it's effect.
Jenovavirus will always be the best slam band anyways.

Regarding Nortt: by listening to any other blackened funeral doom band instead.

The Murder of Jesus the Jew is Meads' best IMO; The number of genres it mixes together borders on ludicrous and could have come off as pretentious and clunky by many other avant-garde bands, but they somehow make it work. The black metal parts are furious and riff-heavy, and the non-metal parts--There's an entirely folky acoustic song, a dark-lounge music song, and a hardcore punk song interspersed there--are equally creative and catchy as hell. It's obviously very overblown and over-the-top, but if you're the kind of person who loved La Masquerade Infernale you'll definitely like it.

Re: "Wiggers".

The proper term is wegroes, assholes.

Honestly, I see nothing intrinsically wrong with "being white and acting black", except 1). It usually means adopting mainly negative stereotypes of "black ppl", and 2). It's often either some privileged rich kid living in the suburbs and trying to seem "dangerous", or it's just trailer trash trying to piss off their parents.

All of Nortts music is pretty much the same, so you can start pretty much anywhere. I can't remember what tuff I liked most anymore haha.

hehehe sweet, I've been waiting for the day someone said something like that. My mark on these forums has finally been made.

Idk dude, I've just been really feeling slam for the past year or so. It's probably one of the weirdest and most inadvertently forward-thinking genres of metal around. Everything is backwards! The guitars act as percussion, and the snare drum is the lead instrument! Lyrics have finally become obsolete, all that matters is the grossest song titles you can think of! Also, it is completely hipster-proof as well: slam will never become the domain of insincere trendhoppers like black metal or traditional metal have because it is too disgusting and uncool for anyone who isn't legitimately into the genre to handle. Nobody will ever start a slam band with the hopes of becoming rockstars like with deathcore or whatever because you will never play anything above basement-level shows. Unless you're also a tech death band like Defeated Sanity or Pathology, I suppose.

I can get behind this, their demo is some fucking punishing stuff. You might dig NJDOTS for a similarly retarded slammassacre.

The only semblance of "slam" related music I have are Ahumando Granujo (mix of cybergrind etc) and CBT. The rest of it pretty much is boring just as Slaneesh described.

The only slam bands I know are local... It's one of those genres I've only been exposed to by the occasional live-show.

Re: Nortt: I'd say his best disc (and also a great entry point) would be Graven. It's got a wonderful atmosphere...claustrophobic and cobweb-caked yet somehow simultaneously vast and quasi-epic. Totally nails the 'depressive' sound without a shred of emo-ness. Truly somber, heavy-as-fucking-hell metal. Ligfaerd is also very representative and quite good, though not as consistently great. His split with Xasthur is also good (on both artists' parts).

Galgenfrist I wouldn't recommend as an entry point, he kind of went overboard with the ambient side of things and meandered into boringness. It's worth listening to, but it's not his best or most representative material by a long shot.

there's much pleasure to be had in slam. I pity the dudes that can't get into it. It's such a stupid genre but it's so much fun to jam and play loud in the car, especially pre surf. I probably like it more than I do most normal death metal :scratch: That Raped By Pigs is pretty bad though. Production's too clear, the slams don't slam hard enough. Sounds like a victory records attempt at slam.

It doesn't have enough FUCKING RIFFS MAN. And "the vocals are stupid" (as if that couldn't be said about the majority of death metal).

Anyways, Nortt is truly bad and ALL of his stuff is 100% meandering. He takes the whole play one chord, play another chord a semi tone higher, play the chord again style and runs it to the ground. I guess he succeeds in some way because his music does make me want to kill myself because of how mind numbing it is. His interviews are hilarious too. "You see, with this album I nihilistically wanted to represent nihilism musically by espousing total nihilism and nihilistically illustrating the nihilism of nihilism."

I can see the appeal in slam death; it's simple, it's stupid in a funny way, and it lends itself well to crazy headbanging and bouncing. It's not my thing, but hell, I listen to Pantera precisely because they fill the niche I just mentioned, for the most part.

@Shouvince; some bat species are bloody adorable. Have you seen those huge, red haired, Indian (or at least I think they're Indian) bats? I'd keep one as a pet if I could.

True that, but Nortt are exactly the kind of Funeral Doom you shouldn't listen to. Go get into Catacombs and we can talk.

I think they're ok, they've got a unique thing going with the bm vocals and piano notes, but yeah, the don't have much in the way of riffs or ideas.

Cloud Rat are becoming one of my favourite grindcore bands. Definitely going to go see them when they play here next month. It's awesome they're going to play Margate, never seen a non-local band anywhere other than London before, nice not to have to make a 5 hour round trip!

Mediocre at best in my opinion. Good Funeral Doom is few and far between.
