The heaviest music ever made

When I was a little boy and was introduced to heavy metal, thrash metal and so on I thought song like "Raining Blood" (Slayer) and psychosocial (Slipknot) were heavy. Right now I am struggling with finding the heaviest music ever made, so please suggest the heaviest bands, songs, albums etc... I am prepared

Rage Against the Machine. heavy doesn't necessarily dictate that it has to be metal.

BUT if it does, Gojira and Meshuggah are pretty heavy

Nothing in the first post is that heavy =\. Slayer are fast and aggressive, not heavy, Slipknot have been heavy but that song simply isn't. Look at Surfacing for Slipknot at their heaviest.

To me the heaviest band is The Acacia Strain. Wormwood is SUCH a heavy album.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'heavy'. if you mean extreme and brutal and that-mans-fingers-are-really-tentacles sort of playing then, I'd suggest all of this:








And this one isn't as heavy or technical, but its ****ing loud and raucus

Nothing posted in this thread is heavy really. The Acacia strain isn't heavy either.

Guys like Wagner and Stravinsky and The Five are probably some of the heaviest stuff. If we're talking about modern bands, funeral doom and drone are the heaviest subgenres. Stuff like Skepticism, Sunn O))), Wormphlegm, Khanate, Nortt, etc. In terms of heaviness, if the stuff in the OP were as heavy as tanks, those bands I just mentions are like mountains in comparison.

And deathcore and djent aren't heavy for the record. Like at all.

If you really want to experience heavy go to a local venue. A CD is never as heavy as a live performance.

It depends on how you define heavy. Does it have to do with emotional weight, low tunings, the mix, or the tonality of the composition?

If it's emotional weight, then that's totally up to you. Personally, I feel like Kezia is one of the most emotionally heavy albums I've ever heard in my life, but that's all opinion.

If it's low tunings, check out Graves at Sea.

If you want a heavy mix, then check out recent BTBAM. They aren't a really dark band as far as tonality goes, but their mix on Colors was really thick and, at times, absolutely devastating. Also, Portal.

If it's a dark tonality, Ahab and Portal. They're very different kinds of dark. Whereas Ahab is mostly diatonic minor oriented, Portal focuses on practical atonality. Both are extremely heavy sounding, but they are different of varieties.

I'm with Geldin here.

Based on what you specified as "heavy" in your original post I would suggest listening to bands like Carcass, Arch Enemy, Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Exodus, Psycroptic, Meshuggah and Dethklok to name a few.

Personally, I am into Melodic Death Metal quite a bit because of the general "emotional intensity" of that genre; you will find the same thing in much of Classical music as well. However, since you described what you are looking for as more of a "Slayer sound" I didn't mention any classical music.

It's up to you to define what you classify as "heavy" and I can't stress that enough.

I was thinking about posting some sludge and doom just for the extreme atmosphere: High On Fire, The Angelic Process, 40 Watt Sun; stuff like that.. But really to me TAS just does it for me, I'm not sure why.

If we're talking super heavy met0lz then THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE:



Is both the prettiest and the heaviest I've listened to in a while.


That and Gaza... and Necklacing... cuz those two hardcore bands are probably heavier than all of the metal bands combined... it's just... so ANGRY. Oh and maybe the entirety of Seepia by Portal, that shit is just something else.

Also personally the most emotionally heavy band is La Dispute, but I doubt many people will agree with me.

Edit: Oh and I guess I should add Shai Halud and Converge to the list... really there are so many REALLY BLOODY heavy bands. OH OH and Hang the Bastard, they're like Hardcore mixed with Black Sabbath.

Now if you excuse me, there is a Spider in my room than has been pissing me off for around half an hour. THE FUCKER NEEDS KILLING.
