My Favorite Metal Band from Slovakia
I have only heard one band from Slovakia, so Sanatorium wins by default. Which I am okay with really. Brutal death metal has been a bit underrepresented in this series and Sanatorium is pretty good. Sanatorium is pretty much as brutal as it gets, with a thick and murky production, frog-croak vocals, and pounding riffs and drums. Sanatorium does border on slam at times, which is perfectly fine with me as I do enjoy slam on occasion. They do have a tendency toward the absurdly grotesque lyrics, but again that is pretty much par for the course for this style of metal.
