2 Apr 2010, 05:48 by Inner_FlameI thought I'd share a list of my favorite death metal demos. Old school metal has had a bit of a resurgence lately, but there still isn't much talk about demos. I've only really immersed myself in the genre in the last 6 months, so obviously there is a lot of stuff I still need to hear; this list won't exactly bring anyone to their knees. I'm not looking to impress though, just to help inform. Hopefully it inspires other people to make their own lists...
No particular order. I left off demos in which all songs on that demo were later put on the same LP. One demo per band, since 50 isn't that many. Death/thrash, death/doom...if it's death, it's eligible for the list
Burial Vault--The Quest Of Afterlife
Imprecation--Ceremony Of The Nine Angles
RANCID CHRIST--Baptized In Blasphemy
Exmortis--Descent Into Chaos
Asystole--Earth Without Christ

1 Nov 2009, 22:52 by FeatherofHuginnWhether due to the steady culmination of a cult following, fan pressure, snaky cashgrabs (*cough, cough, Pestilence, cough*), or simply the will to show the new kids on the block how it's done, waves and waves metalbands have been reforming left and right over the last few years, doing tours, releasing new material (for good or bad), and generally kicking ass. This journal is a little tool I'm going to use to keep track of who's back together, and who (in my opinion) still needs to get their ass in gear.
If you think I'm missing something please leave a comment.
Black Sabbath/Heaven And Hell- Get well soon Dio!
Comus (Not metal, but who cares...)
Deathrow (US, Pre-Pentagram)
23 Dec 2008, 21:11 by long-viewSome of the best material within metal, particularly the more extreme sub-genres, is found not on full length albums, but demos and EPs. This is my own comprehensive list of demos that every true hellbanger must hear before they die.
EDIT: I thought I could fit all of them in one big post, but I don't want it to scroll down for pages and take forever to load, so I'm breaking it into parts like my other "Must Hear" lists. 1.1 will be posted shortly!
Toxic Holocaust- Radiation Sickness - Demo from 1999, back in the day when Toxic Holocaust was composed of members, not just Joel Grind. Fast, angry, apathetic thrash music that is much more hardcore influenced than later TH stuff. Tons of energy in this demo, long-time fans of Joel and TH will love this demo.
Dominus - The Occult Lords Of Torment - Awesome Chilean black/death metal from 1994. Not particularly groundbreaking or anything, but if you're a death metal fan (or a fan of the Chilean scene) you've probably heard this demo. And if you haven't, go and give'r!

What the hell... everyone else here has one of these damn things, I might as well toss my severed head into the ring as well... I'm not saying that every band on this list shows up in my wet dreams, they're all just worthy of a listen, if nothing else. They may only have a song or 2 that I like, or they may be one of my favorite bands ever. Those greatest of heroes, the best of the best (OK, just my personal favorites, or ones I want to get more attention for some reason, or just whatever's been rattling my snake this week) will be listed in bold - like that. Anyway, enough foreplay, let's ride...
