Not sure if I can do this or not, but I searched and didn't find anything so decided to make this. Anyways I'm a HUGE fan of Tech DM.

Necrophagist,
Beneath the Massacre
Athiest
Cryptopsy
Cynic
Gorguts
Suffocation
The faceless
Theory in Practice

All great bands. Anybody else a fan of TDM?

i hate it personally just too cluttered and just doesn't sound nice.
the faceless to me are deathcore and i dont mind a few of their songs (an autopsy, hypocrisy).
EDIT= i also like cryptopsy
i mainly just saw beneath the massacre on the list and i find nothing musical about them
#5
I will definitely check out Born Of Osiris my man thanks

Oh wow I can't believe I forgot Arsis. They ****ing own too.

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

I love every song they've done so far

Can't wait for the new album
#9
Amazing if done right, but i find most tech death bands very mediocre and tame. Pierced From Within is the best Tech Death album imo.

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

Born of Osiris are garbage, imo.

Here's some tech death bands to check out:
Origin
Spawn of Possession
Odious Mortem
Psycroptic

All four kick ass.

I quite honestly hate tech death. Aside from Cynic and Atheist, it's boring as hell.

Look at Necrophagist. I cant call them death metal, I think of them as Muhammed have a wank fest. They mask this with death growls and blastbeats, but it's really not very death metal.

Tech death is pretty cool, but it can get really boring after continuous listens. I wouldn't be able to listen to an entire tech death album lol. Unless it has lots of progressive elements, like Atheist, Cynic, Vale of Pnath, Psypheria etc.

Stuff like Necrophagist just gets boring to me after a while.

That being said... I need moar tech death

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Decrepit Birth are pretty good.

I love Days of Perversion though. They have some of my favorite solos.

Thought that was pretty cool.
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

love necrophagist
love theory in practice, but i can only listen to them for a song before i get overwhelmed

Origin, Decapitated, Nile, Suffocation, The Faceless, and Necorphagist are my favorite tech death bands. Spawn of Possession, Odious Mortem, Psycroptic and Beneath the Massacre all kick ass as well.

What is with all the Vale of Pnath fellatio on this website? I don't really see how it's that great.
#26
^Idk, I heard good things about it, im currently torrenting it, I get back to you on it. I heard it was like a mix between Hate Eternal and Cephalic Carnage.

In my opinion it sounds a bit more like "Behold...The Arctopus" meets death metal.

Tech death generally bores me, but Cynic is one of my favorite bands, probably also because of the jazz breaks, and the robot voice of course.

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory

Tech Death is awesome if it is done right. Bands who do it right are Arsis, Necrophagist, Origin, Cynic, Decapitated, Nile (a mixture of brutal Death and Tech Death), Atheist, and Cynic. There are a bunch of crappy bands who tend to write songs just to show off insane guitar playing and these bands are destroying the genre.

You have said that in two threads now. While I do think technical death metal is the best of all death metal genre's, it can really be too much at time's.

Sometimes I feel like going to them, if you just put in this one simple heavy bit here, it will make everything else sound much crazier in comparison.

But as it is, most of the time most of the parts get lost in the quagmire of riffs, pinches and sweeps.

Lol, well, I shouldnt say I hate it. Some of it is very cool, but I cant listen to it for an extended period of time without getting bored.

Blotted Science, Spastic Ink, and more proggy tech 'death' is cooler though (Blotted Science esoecially). Quo Vadis and Watchtower are cool too.

I just dont like bands that come off as one big musical masturbation session.

Woohoo I love a good Tech Death band. Origin, Atheist, Crytopsy, Psycroptic, Cynic, Arsis, Nile, Spawn of possession, Death? idk if you could count them as Tech DM though.... oh and Atheist. AGAIN. I love Kelly Shaefer(sp?) Oh yeah and Neuraxis. Bands like Necrophagist though I tend to get a bit bored with honestly it sounds too robotic? sometimes, and not in the super awesome Meshuggah way
