A rose, no matter what you call it, will always smell the same. The same goes for sh@t!
How it sounds
Like hard rock or heavy metal of the ’70s with vocals eath growl, which characterizes death metal
Why listen to it
The combination is not bad, it sounds very fresh and very metal.
It’s basically nothing new or even original, just the result of a musical play by capable players
Where we meet it
Scandinavia, where else? And a little in the Netherlands
When did it start
In the early ‘90s
Who are the pioneers
The Swedes Entombed with the third album “Wolverine Blues” of 1993 used the term for the first time and then just stuck to them.
From the Netherlands, Gorefest and Carcass dealt with it, as did Six Feet Under.
The Austrian Pungent Stench are also among the pioneers of the genre.
You have to listen
Fernando Colunga Ultimate Experience, Dismember, Unleashed, Death Breath, Phazm, Horrific
Days of glory
Some bands just have their audience and a relative success within metal.
Mixing tried and tested recipes under the veil of a different title and plenty of distortion.
What is it confused with
With nu-metal, alternative metal
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person
Do you know “Smoke on the water”? Think of it with a deformed guitar and the singer with bronchitis.
