Death/Grind Metal List




Edition 45          

February 14, 2002   



Introduction revised Thursday, February 14, 2002 A.D. (Sixth Revision)      


Greetings.  My name is Bill Vogel III.  I am the Keeper of the Death/Grind

Metal list.  Firstly, I'd like to thank my predecessor, Thomas Wolmer, for

allowing me to take the list over, for all of his great works (previous and

current), and for allowing me to build off of his list.  I must also pass my

gratitude on to Travis Johnson, who created the Metal List From Hell which

inspired these later lists.  To my masters I give honor.  Your contributions

will live in infamy.   


Now to tell you a little about myself...  I am a College graduate (Bachelor

of Science in Computer Information Systems) in the U.S.A.  I have written

reviews, editorials, etc. for approximately 9 years now.  I am a Christian,

and I've been into Metal since I was 8 years old...I'm now 29.  I listen to

all forms of Metal, but I especially enjoy Doomdeath, Doom, Death, Grindcore,

Black, Thrash, Industrial Metal, and Rapcore Metal.  [Problems with my

religious or philosophical views are YOUR problem not mine.  Problems with my

artistic and music preferences are YOUR problem as well.  Treat me with

respect, and I will do the same for you.  Animosity, just like respect, has

to be earned.]


I publish my own Electronic magazine called Stranger Aeons (formerly known as

Hate Box), which is dedicated to the extreme forms of music.  I also created

and maintain The Rapcore Metal List, and Spitting Blood (a list of any

compilations that contain at least one Death Metal band, and the pure Death

Metal compilations as well...that list will be updated shortly).  I have also

had articles published in several underground magazines Brave Words & Bloody



I hope to update this list at the very latest once every 2 months, and

hopefully more frequently than that.  I also plan to diversify the list a

little more.  I want to incorporate some "marginal" Death Metal bands and

some Deathpunk (a.k.a. Crust, Crustcore, or Crusty Punk) as well.  So enjoy. 



P.S. I use several different pseudonyms (nicknames) including: William The

Bloody, etc.


This of course means that all additions and correction should be sent to me.


Keep sending info!


Also, I need someone to let me put my lists and magazine on their webpage.  I

believe that Thomas Wolmer is no longer maintaining his page.  Thanks.






The Deathgrind Metal List

Revision August 16, 2003 A.D.

Edition 45v   

Bill Vogel III   




What the Hell is this?


- This is an attempt to list the Metal World's treasure of Death Metal and

Grindcore releases. The discography was until now maintained by Thomas Wolmer

(, but now is maintained by Bill Vogel III [Missouri,

U.S.A.]  ( who in the rest of this document

refers to himself as The Keeper. The list is a descendant of the late Metal

List From Hell, once kept by Travis Johnson ( and

originally created by one ( The document is

however copyright 1995 by Bill Vogel III (big deal since the information in

it is totally free).



Now of course there are mistakes, and omissions in this list.  I would like

to make this a complete list of all the Death Metal, and derivatives for the

entire world.  But that is an impossible task.  I cannot be everywhere and

know everything, I am not God.  Please send comments and information to me at

the following email addresses:
















I welcome all additional information.  But if you strictly write to gripe,

and provide no useful info...then don't even bother.  One whiney little

individual wrote me to tell me how terrible the list was, and how they didn't

have the time to take out of their little self-important life's schedule to

provide what they felt was the correct information.  To people like this I

say, "Get outta my face."  I accept all comments, but why should I waste my

time on a loser attitude like this?  I don't and won't.  Also, don't email me

and say like "your music sucks," etc.  Flamers can screw-off...I don't need

the hassle.  It's hard enough to keep-up with the legitimate emails.  Your

opinion is your business, so keep your mouth shut.  This is an informational

list, not a chat room or a bravado/ego contest.


BUT, to all those that provide me with their generous help and expertise, in

the past and future, I thank you all from the very catacombs of my cold

heart.  God's Eternal blessings to you all.  Later.


While I want the list to be more inclusive than it has been in the past, I

question what should be included.  Should I put Slayer and Kreator on the

list?  While they were definitely influential on the style, do they honestly

sound Deathly by today's standards?  Some say yes, others say no.  And then

if I do include them, should I include Voivod who in their early days was

similar to Kreator.  Send me your comments.


What is Death Metal? And what is Grindcore?


Death Metal****


Death Metal is an extremely aggressive form of Heavy Metal that incorporates

brutal guitar playing with Growl style vocals (which are also referred to as

Deathgrowl or Deathgrunt vocals...some of the silly critics call them "gargle

with glass," "gargle with razorblades," or trash-compactor" vocals).  It is

the heaviest form of Metal in existence.  And it, in its pure form, is

totally unique from all other styles of Metal.  Also, many Death Metal bands

use double bass drums.


Grindcore Metal****


Grindcore (a.k.a. Grind) is a derivative (offshoot or hybrid) style of Death

Metal.  It is a mixture of Death Metal and Hardcore Punk that is of the

REALLY FAST variety.  The term was coined by a member of Napalm Death.  But

it is different than Deathpunk Metal which is more like Death Metal mixed

with early style Punk.  It tends to not be as heavy as pure Death Metal (but

of course this varies from band to band, etc.), in sheer power, and has a

much more rhythmic nature to its sound.  It almost has a mechanical feel, in

a very frentic and manic manner.  There as a rule are no tempo changes, and

the songs tend to be short.  There is also really no use of melody.  It's

sheer, fast rhythm that has no mercy.  (If you were pounding-out sheer

attitude with brutal aggression at a speed only rivaled by God you'd get

tired too.)  Being super heavy and rhythmic, and not to mention FAST, it

makes the fastest Thrash seem totally whipped.  Prime examples of the style

are: Napalm Death (of course, they are the Kings Of Grindcore.), early

Carcass, Brutal Truth  (one of the best examples), Exit-13, Macabre, Filthy

Christians, Enemy Soil, Old Lady Drivers, Heresy, Bolt Thrower, etc.  Many

Death Metal bands experiment with Grind, so the two styles tend to blur a

bit.  It's hard to describe, but killer to listen to.



Deathpunk (a.k.a. Crust, Crustcore, or Crusty Punk)****


Deathpunk is simply a mixture of Death Metal and Punk Rock.  The band that

best personifies this style is Disrupt.  Other bands include Merauder,

Destroy, etc.


Black/Death Metal****


Simply put it is a mixture of Black Metal (screach style vocals and occult or

mythology based lyrics...sort of reminds one of the Linda Blair character

from the "Exorcist" movie).  Examples of this style include: Incantation,

Belial, Blasphemy (Black/Grind), Dissection, Cradle Of Filth, Bathory, etc.


There are basically three styles of Black/Death Metal:


1.)     Northern Style - (a.k.a. Norwegian Style, Scandinavian

          Style, etc.).  This style originated in the Norway,

          Sweden, and Finland area.  It is basically very

          heavy Black Metal with vocals that are a mix of

          a screech and a growl (a raspy growl).  This fits

          bands like Immortal, Darkthrone, Dissection, Cradle

          Of Filth, etc.


2.)     Brutal Black Death - This style incoporates a brutal

          Death sound with Black style lyrics with some

          screeching [but used only slightly].  This includes

          bands like Incantation, etc.


3.)     Black/Doomdeath - This one mixes Black Metal and totally

          brutal Doomdeath.  This includes bands like

          Bethlehem, Carpathian Forest, and Carpathian Full



Industrial/Death Metal****


A mixture of Industrial [i.e. use of samples] and Death Metal.  Example: Dead

World, Purge, Candiru, Fear Factory, Meathook Seed, Skin Chamber, Hybernoid,

Anorexia Nervosa, etc.


Doomdeath Metal****


My favorite style.  A simple fusion  of Doom Metal [slow, heavy guitar with

deep and slow vocals] and Death Metal.  Examples: Paradise Lost, Pyogenesis,

Anathema, Cerebral Fix, My Dying Bride, Celestial Season, Enchantment,

Amorphis, Divine Eve, Renaissance, Cemetary, Nightfall, Ceremonium, Darkside,

Blood Divine, etc.


Of course there are hybrids of this style as well.  An example would be the

band Mindrot which mixes Doomdeath Metal and Grindcore Metal.  This band is



Aggro /or/ Aggro/Death Metal****   


A chunky, rhythmic style of Metal with a mixed vocal style (usually growled

and clean).  It's typically not as heavy, has a slight Hardcore tinge, and is

more 'radio friendly.'  Definitive bands of this style include Slipknot,

System Of A Down, Kittie, and American Head Charge.  (ONLY the ones with at

least a slight Death Metal influence will be included here.)   


Reading This List****


How am I supposed to interpret the unintelligible mess that makes up the



- The entries in the list look like this:


Artist: Country birth_year-demise_year (comments on state of existence.)

   # General comments on the band

  Name Of Release/format/release year [Record Label(s)] (comments on     


   # Comments on this particular release



If the band is currently alive, there is of course no demise year, and if one

or both of the dates are unknown they are left out. If the band has existed

during several periods there are several intervals.  If the format field is

missing then the item is an ordinary full-length LP/CD/MC release; a non-

full-length release is usually called an EP or possibly a CDS or 12" if that

is the only available format.  Inconsistencies in the notation would not

surprise The Keeper.  


To save space, the record label names have been abbreviated; a key is

available at the end of the list.  But I do hold the option not to abbreviate

if I see fit.


At last, is there any legal junk to remember?


Not really. This document is freeware (public domain), you are allowed and

encouraged to copy, spread and make it publicly available, provided that you

do not charge any money for it.  Use the information in it in any way you can

think of, but when you quote straight from the list, The Keeper would

appreciate if you mention your source.


What is not allowed is spreading versions of the document with any of the

text changed. If you want any changes made, tell The Keeper, OK?  And BTW,

even though The Keeper sometimes spreads versions of the lists without this

header section, don't give such a headless list to anyone who hasn't gotten a

headed one.


History Of Death Metal***


Most of the so-called Heavy Metal historians lay the creation of Death Metal

at the feet of the now infamous Black Metal band Venom.  Venom rode-in from

the dark abyss in 1979 in what is now called the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British

Heavy Metal).  They were part of this flood of bands that included the likes

of Iron Maiden, Samson, Witchfinder General, Witchfynde, Praying Mantis, etc. 

And yes, Venom did have some very subtle Death Metal in their sound.  But

their style ran more towards what is called Old Style (a.k.a. Old World,

German Style) Death Metal. 


Many other bands influenced the sound of this style of Death Metal.  Such

bands as Kreator, Slayer, early Voivod and others were influential (although

many of these would now not be categorized as Death Metal). 


Death Metal as we now know it wasn't spawned until now legendary bands like

Possessed, Bathory, and Celtic Frost tempered the sound in the early 1980's. 

After that the torch was picked-up by bands such as Death, Entombed (one of

my favorites), Morbid Angel, Carcass, Master, Repulsion, and Napalm Death

came into being.  These bands intensified the power of the instrumental, and

intensified the growl of the vocals.  This happened in the mid to late



Since then Death metal has sprung into several new directions such as

Industrial Death Metal (i.e. Dead World, Purge, Candiru), Doomdeath Metal

(early Paradise Lost, Anathema, Celestial Season, My Dying Bride, etc.), etc.


Where will Death Metal go next?  No one knows for sure, but as long as the

style keeps its progressive nature and its underground attitude it will

continue to thrive.  Stay true, and stand hard.  Later.



Edition Notes*****


7th. Edition - Addition of the South African Death Metal

     scene.  ---BBVIII.


8th. Edition - Addition of bands from the DM scene in

     Latvia (formerly part of the U.S.S.R.).  None of the

     Latvian bands can release their stuff on Cd or vinyl,

     but these releases are past the categorization of

     demo.  So their releases come out on magnetic tape

     or compact cassette [CC] (in most areas just known as

     a tape or cassette).  So their releases will be

     denoted as "tape,"  ---BBVIII.


9th. Edition - Addition of more from the Latvian scene as

     well as bands from Defiled Records (U.S.A.).  ---BBVIII.


10th. Edition - Addition of the Death Metal scene in

     Portugal.  Many of these bands have only released demos

     while others such as Moonspell and Thormenthor have

     released Cds.  ---BBVIII.


11th. Edition - Revision and addition to previous entries.



12th. Edition - Addition of more of the Australian Death

     Metal scene.  ---BBVIII.


13th. Edition - Additions and revisions.  ---BBVIII.


14th. Edition - Additions and revisions.  ---BBVIII.


15th. Edition - Additions and revisions.  Stuff on Exmortis,

     Darkside, Exhumed, etc.


20th. Edition - Additions from the Italian scene.  ---BBVIII.
