- Slayer’s cred: They’re one of the most influential bands of all time, double Grammy-winners, and the progenitors of vicious speed metal.
- How vicious: Columbia refused to release their seminal 1986 album Reign of Blood; the band’s 2006 album Christ Illusion was forbidden from the entire nation of India.
- How speedy: Reign of Blood was performed at an average of 220 beats per minute.
- Where MTV ranked Slayer on its list of Top 100 metal bands of all time: number six
- Why: “Inspired by classic metal, hardcore punk, horror movies and a hunger to destroy, the band wrote brutal, unrestrained songs that were disturbing, controversial and took heavy metal to new extremes.”
- The end is near: Slayer is making its exit with one final world tour.
- Lamb of God: Often labeled as death metal, speed metal, or groove metal (bassist John Campbell simplifies it as “a punk band that plays heavy metal”), this Grammy-nominated Virginia quintet scalds the stage with galvanic riffs, pummeling-bass drums, and vocals packed with misanthropic and apocalyptic lyrics.
- Amon Amarth: Named after a volcano in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, this melodic death-metal band from Sweden barks out stories of ancient mythology and viking history over a blistering soundscape of sweeping guitar harmonies and frantic drums.
- Cannibal Corpse: Over their 30-year career, this Florida death-metal band fronted by George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher has pushed the envelope with insanely grotesque lyrics and album covers that have gotten them banned from several countries.
