Dirty Rotten Imbeciles
Tatally left out Hammer Witch, Devastation and Caustic Death!
I just remembered that Rotting Corpse existed (and still does). I think they deserve a mention, too.
Prophecy from Fort worth! Foretold..Fore seen is one of the most ground breaking death metal albums to ever come out of D/FW ..12 years ago and still kicks ass! And if ya ever seen em live...you have witnessed the definition of Pure Texas brutality!
@msrcast Absu, sadly mostly overlooked.
Devastation and Solitude Aeturnus are two more that come to mind
Pantera, Absu, Insidious Decrepancy...
Crucifixion (RIP) out of Houston was also really good if we're also including Death Metal.
Also! Solitude Aeturnus!
I think Rigor Mortis needs to be higher. vampire is such a crushing tune.
Craig, what's their record called?
I can't find Josephus music on amazon
Too much Country, Soul and Blues influence in Texas to support a thriving Metal scene. Ya know, REAL musical styles, not 'I bought a pointy guitar and wanna make some noise' idiocy.
That DRI video brought back memories. As a kid growing up in the early 80s and skateboarding, this was played at all make shift half pipes, etc. The DRI mosh guy was spray painted on an abandoned drive in movie theater just outside of Galveston. You could see it from 45, just before the causeway.
How did you forget COMPLETE?!?!
Pantera, dead horse, kings x, the sword is a pretty great top 4!
Pantera, without even reading the article. Side note, yesterday was Dimebag's (RIP) birthday.
Upon A Burning Body out of San Antonio is also great and are quickly making a name for themselves.
@HoustonPress The State Vs Judd Nelson.
