Death Metal: The Next Level

Within the past ten years or so, death metal seems to have really taken off into some bolder, more unorthodox territory. It hasn't gotten quite as crazy as its black metal cousin has, but nonetheless, a good amount of younger bands have taken strides towards creative, interesting new twists on the classic death metal sound. This list essentially seeks to illustrate this trend.

1. Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines
2. Portal - Outre'
3. Skeleton Of God - Primordial Dominion
4. Mitochondrion - Parasignosis
5. Chaos Echús - Tone Of Things To Come

Mz's Favorite Records Of Drone And Related Genres

Still not finished, as I need to rearrange, check the links and also go through the genres again. I might have forgotten many good records. In addition, my knowledge of early industrial movement is very limited, so the list is lacking on that front. Many albums on the list might also not be considered drone in a traditional sense of the word, but they need the same sort of aesthetic appreciation I guess, so I included them. The most important criteria is that the albums should rely extensively on texturing, buildup, and musical landscapes rather that being riff based.

1. ***Drone Doom Metal***
2. Boris - Amplifier Worship
3. Earth - Earth 2: Special Low Frequency version
4. Earth - The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull
5. Floating Glasses - Fabric of Disquiet (Drone Metal - http://floatingglasses.bandcamp.com/album/fabric-of-disquiet)
