My Favorite Metal Band from the Netherlands

Yes, I am repeating another pick from the Top 100, but seriously what do you expect? The Netherlands proved to be a particularly fertile ground for death metal in the early 1990's. Vocalist Martin Van Drunen has been in a number of bands but really seemed to make his mark with Asphyx. His psychotic wailing fit the band's doomy and gloomy sound pretty well. Picking just one band was very difficult for this country because there are a lot of good bands and a lot of them sound pretty similar. Asphyx wins out because it is the best work Van Drunen has done to date.

NOTABLE SCENES: Death metal.

God Dethroned
Hail of Bullets
Prostitute Disfigurement
