I have yet to encounter a group I adore more than Unfathomable Ruination. Not only do they display both dizzying technicality and stomach-churning brutality (frequently simultaneously), but they are capable of crafting some of the most dynamic, fluid, memorable and downright catchy death metal songs I've ever heard, along with creating one of my favourite records of all time, Finitude. Everything flows together exceptionally well with not a moment wasted or feeling filler-y, an impressive feat considering the sheer deluge of riffs they spew forth. There are individual albums that come close to reaching that level of riffcraft and songwriting proficiency (Faceless Burial's Speciation comes to mind, which strikes me as an OSDM-ified take on Ruination's style), but to maintain this standard across a whole discography is astounding. Granted, they are a mere three albums and two EPs in, but still! I struggle to see how any band will top these guys, at least in my books.

I'd probably go with Laibach, especially 1980-1994.  They're the only band I like so much musically and find so fascinating conceptually that I wrote a poli sci paper about them


Also tell me this isn't some hilarious shit right here

Band?! What is that? :D


I mean I mainly listen to electronic music, so I'd call them single artists and not bands per se.


So with that definition... I dunno. I used to listen to a ton of Kid2Will and Dimrain47 back in the days and they still hold a special place in my heart but without new releases it's hard to say I'm a fan of them... if that makes sense.


Other batch is F-777 aka Jesse Valentine and TheFatRat.


And my newest (so I discovered them in the last 5 years) artists are NeuroWolf, Zircon and Kai Engel.


One extra is Thaehan, I'm always hyped for his new releases.

Yeah same here. It seems either someone hates the music their parents listen to or it rubs off on them at a young age!

Tyranny And Mutation is the best BOC album by far, and one of the greatest albums of all time. Fight me.


Oh, as for my favorite band... Don't really even need to say it at this point, do I?

Mana Mana


Clock Dva

Ordo Equilibrio

Musta Paraati

In Slaughter Natives


i also listen to a lot of rock/metal, usually from artists originating from the late 1960s to 1970s, such as the Doors, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin and any bands started by Ritchie Blackmore, and all bands fronted by Glenn Danzig.  And some black metal from the 1990s, most well-known of which would be Burzum, Mutiilation also deserves a mention.

Oooh! Now, there's a bold claim... I'd have to fight you for Cultosaurus Erectus I think...  It's got Black Blade on it after all. And the cover is probably one of their best.

I'm usually hesitant to say "favourite ever," but Jinjer can do no wrong, it seems (my favourite songs by them are, without doubt, Judgement & Punishment and Home Back).


Some other bands I'd rate highly are Eisbrecher, Feuerschwanz, Spiritbox, and Nine Inch Nails.
