My 100 Favorite Metal Bands Pt. 36: Dismember

Dismember has been one of the most consistent bands in the Stockholm death metal scene. They are the band to point to best characterize the sound that is typical of the scene. Their buzzsaw-style riffs and deep guttural vocals have been often imitated by other groups in the scene, but Dismember has been doing it consistently since the late 1980's. Their sound is rooted in thrash metal and crust punk, but Dismember plays it extremely heavy and extremely violently. Dismember has never released a bad album either, and picking just one favorite is very difficult.

  1. It's just about a toss-up for me between Massive Killing Capacity and Like An Everflowing Stream. i think I'd give the nod to the latter purely because I've heard it more so it feels more familiar, but in terms of quality it's too close to call.
