Degial is worth checking out

Much better band on live than from album.


Death's Striking Wings fucking sucks. Really bad attempt at Altars of Madness worship.



Kaamos, Repugnant and Verminous for me. But I really don't care too much about any of them.

Difficult to state this because all the main members who "creates" the Swedish death metal scene comes from punk bands as far as death metal in general (Napalm Death for example).

I think also the roots are quite audible on their first albums.

To the topic: Axis Powers worth to be named here

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's mentioned a lot in the Swedish Death Metal book

Facebreaker
Corrosive Carcass
Torture Division

To name just the ensemble who stayed true to the Stockholm sound.

Also don't like bands who are influenced by punk sound.

Maybe not any more but the early death metal-bands was heavily influenced by hardcore punk.

Highly influenced not mean play the same kind of music.

I don't see any punk influence in 'Left hand path', 'Like an ever flowing stream', 'You'll never see' or 'Shadows in the deep'.

They simply created a new style of metal.

sorry mate but I think all metal has some punk roots - you'd be hard pressed to find any old death metal band that wasn't even slightly influenced by Slayer who in turn were quite influenced by punk

I'm sure there's some old Dismember footage where he says something like 'If you want to pogo go to a punk show...'

Funny how Slayers punk 'roots' only became known in 1996 when metal wasn't doing so well and pop punk was the big thing....

Anyway, new Swedish Death Metal bands that are good:
Morbus Chron
Invidious
Degial

As soon as I read "sorry mate" I read your post in Australian english. Then I saw you were from Australia. Very Happy

To be on topic: Since Swedish Death Metal is the best and purest form of Death Metal. I totally love the wave of "new old school". If you take Repugnant as an example, they are not mindless clones of Dismember and Entombed (and so on), they create their own music, but it's 100 % Swedish Death Metal in every sense possible. As it should be.

Gonna spin Hecatomb now.

I don't think it was a secret before then. Have you seen the Ultimate Revenge video with Dave (I think) wearing a DRI shirt? Also Jeff had punk stickers on his guitars for years

Listen to Carnage (Especially "The day man lost"-demo), Nihilist, Bolt Thrower (first LP). I think some of the songs have a very distinct punk-vibe to them.

Discharge, GBH, Anti-Cimex, DRI, Cryptic Slaughter, Siege, Napalm Death. All those bands pushed punk to the extreme. Both with speed and sound production. So did Slayer, Kreator, Hellhammer with metal. I don't think you can say which genre that was most inluental because it differs from band to band, but to say that punk have nothing to do with the early death metal movement in Sweden is just incorrect.

Unless I missed it, I can't believe that REVEAL has not been mentioned yet!

Of the more traditional-sounding bands, I liked Morbider, Miasmal, Winterwolf, Profanal (not Swedish but sound it), Graveyard (ditto), Bastard Priest, Entrails, and one or two others whose names I am blanking on. The whole trend has been run into the ground though so for the most part, I'm not paying active attention to it now.

Of the less traditional-sounding bands, Degial, Repugnant, Karnarium, Tribulation, Vanhelgd, and Stench are all very good. Wasn't all that wowed by Necrovation.

I also recommend Horrendous, who aren't Swedish but sound like a mix of that and other DM styles, with good songwriting.
