Slam Jamz: An Overview of Boastful Wiggnorance

My beginning stages with metal centered on the “mallrat” end of the spectrum.

However, my transition into deeply underground brutality was very quick. Nearly overnight, I went from listing to Bring Me the Horizon and Bullet for My Valentine, to jamming to bands like Katalepsy and Devourment before I had ever even heard the term “slam”. Within the past year, I have discovered and moved my arms like Mike Jones to a vast amount of slam, and I would like to share a portion of these riffs with you.

I have divided it up into categories to assist the newcomers. If you are one of those slabs of fresh meat, get ready to be fucked in your ear pussies by the Toxic Avenger. (Ed. Note: Barf.)


Your Dad’s Slam

I’m sure everybody here will be at least mildly familiar with these bands, so I won’t elaborate too much. This is the working man’s slam; the old shit that shaped the genre. If it were not for these groups, we wouldn’t have the tune-age that we have today :’)

Suffocation – Liege of Inveracity

Whodathunk that Suffo would make this list? Surprise, ya bunch of bishes! For those of you who are entirely new to the genre, Suffocation came out of the NYDM scene in 1988 and were pretty much cast aside as garbage because they played super heavy pit riffs instead of the average stuff coming out of Morrisound. Liege contains what is considered to be the first recorded slam. Even though it is surrounded by guitar solos on each side, this twenty second break shaped what death metal would soon become.

Dying Fetus – Blunt Force Trauma

A lot of people consider DF to have played a large role in the formation of slam. While I agree, I think that most of what people see as them slamming is really just them playing some super heavy, lower tempo riffs. Fetus has been, and most likely will continue to be, one of my favorite bands. If you want proper preparation for trve slam, this band is a winner.

Internal Bleeding – Epoch of Barbarity

Voracious Contempt is the first album that is pure slam. Unfortunately, their production is fucking awful (the guitar tone sounds like if the game Twisted Metal made music, and not in a cool way) and the vocals sound like what your friends sound like when they make fun of metal. I put this on here out of principle, not out of personal interest.

 


 

BDM with a Side of Slam

I would imagine that this is where a lot of people start out once they enter the slam realm. This stuff is essentially standard, archetypal brutal death metal with a few slams thrown in every once in a while. Blast beats, generic riffs, and tremolo picking galore, but toss in a(n often times high tempo) slam. When done properly, this shit can go really hard, as the slam acts as a breakdown. However, a lot of bands like this are super lame, so you have to search a bit to find solid stuff.

Pus Vomit – Dead for Rent

A lot of this album is very slam-centered, but this song is an excellent example of what I’m talking about. Plus, they’re Filipino! How many Filipino bands can you think of??

Carnal Decay – Shotgun Facelift

This is one of those bands that I listened to in 7th grade without realizing that that breakdown is actually called a “slam”. This is one of the better songs that I’ve heard from this subsection; there are fairly technical parts, a few grindy parts, some siqq vokills, and the buildup/break at the 2:00 mark makes me do the CKY headbang/airpunch to this day.

Composted – BB(W)Q

Composted are a lot like Carnal Decay, but I think they slam harder. Honestly, I’m including these guys purely out of favoritism, as I love these fuckers. I mean, I ripped my author name off of one of their shirt designs.

 


Trve Slam

This is what I think of when the topic of slam death metal is brought up between me and my imaginary metalhead friends. This is the stuff that all those abortion survivors in the Youtube comment section call “deathcore”. This shit…is admittedly awful, on a literal level. However, the heaviness of these riffs is undeniable. No matter how simplistic or meatheaded it is, I think you have to have a special kind of musical ear to be able to write a proper slam. For that, I give these bros props. Also, I’ve heard that these bands kick fucking ass when you’re drunk. I don’t drink, so I don’t know how true that is, but it sounds like a decent excuse to get shithammer wasted at your computer. It’s for science! (Ed. Note: Way ahead of you.)

Devourment – Babykiller

This is probably this first slam jam that I ever heard, and I totally stole it off of LimeWire because it had a badass name. I had never heard anything so guttural before. I couldn’t fully appreciate this song for what it is due to my young age, but now I see it as one of the most perfectly constructed DM tunes of all time. There are three different versions of this song, all very rad. Even though this isn’t the first that I heard, this is my favorite, as it has Wayne Knupp as the vocalist and the gnarliest riffs (in my opinion). MOTHERFUCKING DEVO, SON.

Cephalotripsy – Uterovaginal Insertion of Extirpated Anomalies

This is the band that truly introduced me to the genre about a year ago. This was, and still is, one of the grimiest albums on the market. The best way that I can describe this is “sloppy”. I don’t mean that it’s poorly put together; everything is tightly put exactly where it needs to be. But every time I listen to this album, I walk away feeling like I’m surrounded by a bile membrane (dibs on the siqq band name). Unfortunately, I listened to this so many times after I bought it, that it has lost its touch. Don’t make the same mistake that I did!

Blasphtized – John the Blasphtist

I namecheck these Brits anytime slam is brought up. Even though they fall under the BDM w/ a Side of Slam category, I consider them trve because of how hard these fuckers slam. Everything about this band is completely obscure, which makes sense when you find out that this is a side project for some dudes in a progressive death band. They slam with pinch harmonics and the vocals sound like an epileptic pig, but it somehow manages to come together in an absolutely beautiful way.

Syphilectomy – Sadomasochistic Haemophilia

This is basically just a Cephalotripsy cover band, but I am absolutely fine with that since they’re hella dope and Cephalo haven’t released new shit in years.

Necrofuckphilia – Cunt Slam Her with a Sledgehammer

This is what I like to call “Self-aware Slam”. This is the absolute epitome of wigger slam, and it’s everything a little boy can dream of. The slams are bouncy as fuck, the incredibly dark humor is awesome to me, I non-ironically enjoy the random hip-hop (especially the Brotha Lynch samples!), and overall, this makes me crack up and mosh simultaneously. It is completely knowledgeable of it uber-wigger identity, and it takes it to its natural extreme. This won’t be for everyone, and having normals see this will end you up in an institution, but if you enjoy shenanigans and brutal pit riffment, this is the Ark of the Covenant.

Necrofuckphilia – Beat a Bitch Down if Ya Name Chris Brown

I included this just for fun. I love this album too much. By the way, you can buy it for free on Bandcamp!

Guttural Slug – Hacksaw Surgery

I neglected this band for a really long time because I figured that they were some shitty, black-metal-level-production troop. When I finally checked it out, I was ecstatic. I had been looking for good, new slam everywhere and couldn’t find it; all the while, this was right under my nose. This album is very well put together and covers a wide variety of drumming, guitar, and vocal techniques. A slam band with some true talent!

Guttural Slug – Eye of the Cyclops

I’m putting this here because I can’t decide which song to pick; they have two very different styles, but each are brutal as all fuck. Check it out and decide which you like better!

 

That should be enough brain damge for now. How do you feel about slam? Are you new and just discovered a bunch of demented weirdness? How badly do you miss JNCO and Sean Jean? Have you noticed that a lot of writers on ToV are ripping off Sergeant D when they’re writing these silly closing questions? Fuck it, slam on!

  • Christian Molenaar

    Good intro for non-inbreds who somehow got it in their heads it would be a good idea to listen to this stuff. You have the same Guttural Slug video twice, though.

    • NO HE DOESNT CHRISTIAN I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.

    • Negrodamus

      Christian I have determined that part of the reason for Pharmakon popularity, besides of course getting picked up by Pitchfork and similar outfits and that she is a woman, is that for power electronics her “music” is fairly accessible *compared* to other power electronics.

      • Christian Molenaar

        Yeah, basically the nu-metal/gateway band of power electronixxx.

        • Negrodamus

          Ha!

          I feel comfortable playing her in my car. I dunno if I’m ready to play Swallowing Bile in my car.

          • Christian Molenaar

            Swallowing Bile on car stereo = 100% a serial killer

  • Howard Dean

    Slam! Byyyyaaaah!!

    Nice article! Glad there’s someone on the staff reppin’ the slam for all of us fans (even if we’re slightly closeted “guilty pleasure” slam fans hiding behind our trve kvltness; I am certainly pointing the first finger directly at myself).

    Favorite BDM with a side of slam: Brodequin, motherfuckers!

    • Tyree

      YESSS!!! This band I enjoy!

      • Howard Dean

        Fuck yes. They’re just so damn fast and gritty. Love ’em. And–like their brethren Disgorge–they know how to conjure forth a monstrous earthquake slam every now and then.

    • Christian Molenaar

      Do you like Liturgy (not the “transcendental black metal” one, the brutal one)? Jon Engman played drums for both. Pretty much everything the dude does is gold. Urth, Custodian and Kathogah are some of my favorites. Check him out on a drum machine here:

      • Howard Dean

        Liturgy (the non-Brooklyn asshole one) slays! You can’t go wrong with the Bailey brothers from Brodequin and Matti Way handling the vocals. 0/5 flushes! Byah!

        • Christian Molenaar

          This comment gets 10/10 byah!s.

          • Howard Dean

            Thanks! Dean-Flair will bring byahs!, wigger slam, and the trve darkness of cult black and death to America in ’16. Vote for us, motherfuckers!

          Shit does anyone here remember the Angry Black metal elitist? http://38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_makuzxfHsU1qjjp4vo1_500.jpg

            Man, I loved TABME’s blog, is he back or is he still gone?

          • old_man_doom

            I remember Drex from MS too. That fucking guy.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        holy shit

      • Tyree

        That was pretty nasty. Looks fun although I’ll just stick to my drum kit. Don’t tea bag it Christian.

    • Call the Slambulance

      Thank you! I struggle with the kvltness mindset as well, but if it grants you some sanity, what’s more kvlt than the most hated and disapproved genre in extreme metal? I mean, I’m pretty sure pornogrind is more acceptable than Slamentation.

      • TrickleDownTacoRiff

        Many thanks…Im new to slam genre worship. I hereby declare this post as my slam New Testament as I an born again through slam and these bands.

        • Call the Slambulance

          I’ll hopefully have some new jams for you soon enough!

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            cool bruh! thx

        • Jason Mendonca

          man where you have been the last few days, I saw this on the news and was worried !

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            Hey man! Thx for lookin out. I’m baaaaaaack! This slam post made me crawl out from under the rock I was hiding!

      • IronLawnmower

        As I mentioned in the unpopular opinions thread on the forum I wouldn’t really mind it except all the songs are about raping/killing women and the whole thing is kinda misogynist.

        • Call the Slambulance

          Don’t get me wrong, misogyny is garbage, but I couldn’t care less when it’s mentioned in metal. I do think that it is extremely tiresome and obnoxious. It isn’t that easy to find a solid slam band that doesn’t always talk about overly-perverse murder or rape.

          • IronLawnmower

            I take bands ideology seriously. like I don’t listen to Burzum because Varg is a complete cunt. I wonder how well an all female slam band who sing about torturing and killing men would go over with the neckbeards who seem to write these songs.

          • Misandrist Engorgementism

          • IronLawnmower

            That sounds like a disease of the genitalia.

          • Call the Slambulance

            It wouldn’t be taken seriously. I think it would just be seen as some silly feminist ploy for attention.

          • IronLawnmower

            Tumblrcore then?

          • Slappy Koch

            They’d be welcomed. The subject matter isn’t intended to be taken seriously. It’s over-the-top ridiculous on purpose.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            Mrs ov hell to be [in times of economic stability] was in something like that once.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            female bands talking about killing guys would only make guys happier , trust me on this one.

          • Poop Mango

            I can get behind the reasoning when dudes in death metal bands say “Oh, well it’s just for shock dude, like a horror movie. It’s not real.” But sometimes, dudes focus a little too much on one thing so much that it’s like, ok, you might have some real problems here and it might be healthier if you just worked on them.

          • Call the Slambulance

            I totally agree. Another reason why I love the silly, self aware bands. They know it’s full blown retarded, but they embrace the hell out of it.

          • IronLawnmower

            Just while we’re talking about slam. Why is it associated with wiggers? Aren’t they nerdy white kids who try to copy “black” culture?

          • Call the Slambulance

            Maybe it’s the ignorance. All I know for sure is that slam riffs and rap beats follow along very similar scales, and therefore people react similarly to them. I move and feel the same way from listening to Epicardiectomy as I do from listening to ASAP Ferg. That’s why some people say it is like nu metal.

          • Renan Ribeiro

            Props for the ASAP Ferg namedrop. Sick album.

          • Call the Slambulance

            Ferg is the fucking man!

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            they’re just trying to up the ante in extremism. It’s like horror film, hostel and that shit doesn’t even touch what they were making in the 70’s , not even close. Some of the naziploitation films that went to theatres and drive ins in the 70’s are so vicious i have to turn them off and i am the most hardcore of hardcore old school horror fans.

          • Call the Slambulance

            Well, Mr. Sir. Since you’re such the expert, what are some solid films I should check out? Haha I’ve been trying to find some goodens for a while, but keep getting locked up in bullshit. The gorier, the better.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            if you want gore and some good scares fulci serves it up in the gates of hell trilogy.

            1. The Beyond – a woman buys a hotel in New Orleans that is built on one of the entrances to hell

            2. House by the cemetery – a couple and their son rent a house in the country for the summer & something in lurking in the basement

            3. City of the living dead – a priest hangs himself thus opening a gate of hell and releasing demonic zombies.

            All 3 of these movies have a lot of supernatural content.

            4. New York Ripper – serial killer on the loose in NY , this is particulary nasty. It is an italian detective story. The italian call them giallos. They differ from american crime dramas of the 70’s and 80’s in that they contain MUCH more GRAPHIC violence and nudity as well as very convoluted plots.

            The first 3 are all bonafide classics , think of them as if your favorite band made 3 EQUALLY great albums in a road.

            Ripper is more of a curiosity, the violence is really over the top, the story pedestrian and has none of the creepy atmosphere of the other films.

          • Call the Slambulance

            Hell yes! Thank you, man!

        • Count_Breznak

          Reading slam lyrics…that’s way deep in the #Axlfacts territory.

        • crazytaco_12

          Same here, I refuse to get behind shitty stuff like that. It’s one thing for a band to say “Fuck you, satan’s the shit, let’s start a war”, okay whatever, but some obsessive gnarly shit like “I offered her candy, she sucked my dick and asked me to stop, but I didn’t and raped her mouth while she cried”…I just can’t listen to that and feel good about it. I’ve also known some people involved in the pornogrind and slam genres, and some (and I mean just the people I’ve met, I’m not going to broadly classify everyone in the genre) of them really do just have skewed, fucked up ideas about life and how they treat women, etc. Anyway, just my opinion.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            it’s a bit like some grindhouse exploitation films from the 70’s, or italian horror films, but just translated to music. I am not going to try and defend misogynist horror or music though. It’s not for everyone.

        • The Satan ov Hell

          I’d prefer if slam metal bands could do stuff about nuclear war, dictatorship, or me, myself

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            i don’t listen to these bands or fully know what slam is , out of the loop, but it seems to be an extension of what CC started out doing lyrically.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            For the most part lyrically yes, and musically a development of early suffocation. Devourment’s CC inspiration is undeniable- “I AM BABYKILLER, I KILL PREGNANT SLUTS AND WHORES”

  • Tyree

    I don’t know a lot about slam metal but it seems like having a tight as fuck snare is mandatory.

    • Howard Dean

      You are learning quickly, slam padouin.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Tighter than Burt Reynolds’ face #slamfacts

    • Call the Slambulance

      If your snare isn’t tight, then the slamz are lacking. Many a great bands have seen demise due to having a snare that doesn’t sound like St. Anger.

      • Tyree

        Good to know 🙂

        What’s the craziest snare sound in slam that you know of. This is really fascinating to me.

        • Call the Slambulance

          Honestly, you don’t have to look far to find bands that have “tennis ball in a paint can” snares.

          • Tyree

            Well yeah but I was just curious to know what drummer/band you thought had the most insane snare sound.

          • Call the Slambulance

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqekEI_2Qmc This is my new favorite band. They’re goofy, self aware, their slams are hard as fuck, and it’s overall super great shit. Plus, dat snare…

          • Tyree

            WHAAAAAAT!!!!???

          • Call the Slambulance

            They have the best fucking band name ever.

          • Call the Slambulance

            Unfortunately, I found them yesterday and didn’t put them in the article. I might put them on RHaR just so everyone sees the glory. Oh, and it’s name your price on Bandcamp!

          • Negrodamus

            NAME YOUR OWN PRICE.

            (also, from reading your article, are you a non-drinker or are you sober now?)

          • Call the Slambulance

            I’m in recovery. If I keep on keeping on, I’ll have two and a half years on the 22nd.

          • Negrodamus

            Ah congrats. I’ll have seven years on the 13th of this month, and Trickle Down Taco Riff has been sober like twenty plus I think he told me like twenty five years!

            Congrats, man! That’s pretty insane.

      Sergeant D is to slam what Dethklok is to melodic death metal. You should nut up and just listen to the real shit.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I witnessed a hilarious thread on another site awhile back where the commentariat were convinced that Dethklok were, legitimately, the best thing to happen to metal in the last 20 years.

        “Seriuosly man thers’ been liek ZER0 good Metal bansd since ReLoad cam e out, prety pathetic, DETHLKOAK IS TEH BEST!!1”

        • W.

          I like Dethklok, but they aren’t the greatest melodeath band in the world. Amon Amarth play a very similar style better.

        • Poop Mango

          I’ve known a few people like this and every single one of them was either someone who listened to no metal or only loved shit like Dragonforce ironically. I like the first two Dethalbums, but shit is like Deafheaven: decent, but anyone who tells you it’s the best the (sub)genre has to offer has not listened to more than one or two bands, at the most.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Pretty much. Seemed like everyone in that particular thread didn’t really listen to metal (hey whatev), so their knowledge of it stopped at Metallica’s 90s output.

      • Scrimm

        Haha I do enjoy a lot of the genre. I do like the members other band, Condemned, but I just can’t get into them. Also like some other flushers have said in other threads, the over the top pornographic gore in so much of the genre is really off putting, especially the older I get.

          Ahh, I get you, man. I can understand why. They’re slam in the extreme haha. I feel you about the gore. It isn’t so much off putting to me, but it’s kind of just become silly. That’s why I have so much appreciation for bands that are aware for how dumb some of this shit is.

            I have no idea what they’re actually saying, but I like the concept of using nature of subject matter, kinda like what were they called? Botanist? and there was a snail one too….can’t remember…

    • I like this surprisingly much.

  • Kevin Nash and Friends

    Does Pathology count as slam? I’m asking this because I love their stuff. It’s great to work on your quad tearing and listen to a Pathology album because even though your quads will hurt it’s something to head bang to as you tear your quads which is always a plus.

    • Call the Slambulance

      I like to call Pathology sort-of-ish-I-guess-but-not-really slam. Some of their stuff is predominantly slam, but most isn’t. They typically play overproduced, really fast and clean brutal death metal, with a couple half-assed, sped up slams in every once in a while. If you like them, check out Abominable Putridity’s latest album. I blame it for the new wave of BDM that is along those lines.

      • So here is a stupid question maybe. What exactly makes something a slam?

        • Guppusmaximus

          I think they are getting “Slam” mixed up with The Groove…

        • Call the Slambulance

          Slams are basically palm-muted riffs played on the chromatic scale. Think downtuning, then jamming powerchords on the first five frets.

    I love the pig squeals

    • Call the Slambulance

      I had not heard them until now! I feel like I saw these guys on Youtube like three years ago and never checked them out. Either way, I’m getting more of a BDM vibe than I am slam.

      • Fromwisdomtohate29

        I see. So I guess Infernal Revulsion (who are fucking awesome) are BDM and not slam either?

    • Never heard this before either but it rips.

  • tylerusmaximus

    I’ve always been too much of a guitar nerd to get really into slam but some of these are awesome. I’d say though, that a notable omission would be Vomit Remnants.

  • Quarter Ounce Harrell

    Blast this motherfucker. guitar squeals plus brutal slam= hate mosh pit.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    I’m sorry, but my ears just don’t want to handle that type of vocals, they just don’t work for me. Was still an interesting read though.

  • I remember hearing Gutteral Slug a few months back. Took me a while to get used to their Mongolian throat singing approach to death metal vocals.

  • crazytaco_12

    Vox sound like someone’s drinking from a straw that’s hit the bottom of a cup

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    I just had my wife listen to Guttural Slug and she said I should start a band like them and be the vocalist where instead of the growl, I just belch into the mic and I was wondering if anyone wanted to be in this band with me?

    • Godspeed to ya and you’d need a deep end bass player! My friend back in Chicago did those kinda vocals, and it’s something else! Sounds like what he did with Mongolian throat singing. Very gutteral (no pun intended), and bass baritone meets a depth charge.

  • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

    Fuck , i can’t wait to see SUFFOCATION, they have never been around my neck of the backwoods before. I don’t know why katakysm is opening though. They are my quebecouis boys so i hafta like em.
