Whats the most aggressive band you know?
Don't get me wrong, there are much more abrasive artists I sometimes listen to, but there's just something about Satan Worshiping Doom that makes it infinitely more angry and aggressive than those other artists' albums that are maybe sonically more harsh.
Anal Cunt. they'd throw glass bottles INTO the audience.
what about hanatarash?
Eye fucking threw metal barrels, firecrackers, and sheets of glass at the audience, not to mention he drove and crashed a small bulldozer at a performance, then threatened to light it on fire when it sprung a gas leak.
ironically their performances were much quieter than most noise acts', since all the destruction was unamplified.
>anon who's never been to a Nails show
Some of the most pissed off thirty-somethings beat the shit out of each other last time I went. Saw some guy get his head bashed into a brick wall but luckily no broken nose (this time, at least). Some dudes went up on stage and started singing with the vocalist and a bunch of early-mid 20's qts there too. Priceless (and fun! definitely one of the better shows I've been to).
As for the OP, it really depends what you mean by "aggressive."
Some find early Swans to be aggressive, and while they often do sound like roided white trash stalking around an open pit in a dive bar, they're not really what I'd personally call overly aggressive. Definitely a sort of posturing, "I'm a mean boy!" attitude though, which is kind of the appeal. Death Grips falls into this category as well but to a lesser extent since they're not nearly as extreme (but only on Exmilitary - everything after is pretty much lighthearted goofing).
When I think of aggressive music I think of something where there's
1) Actual hate or disgust involved from the band's perspective (ex: most grind, d-beat, crust, anarcho/oi!)
Which is usually accompanied, but can be substituted by:
2) Blisteringly aggressive instrumentation ala Putridity, Last Days Of Humanity, stuff like that.
It lends a more genuine effect to the music when the music matches the emotions. Sometimes the music alone is enough though.
I mean, I guess if you find noise to be aggressive.
It's pretty emotionless. Many noise acts (especially Japanese) will do weird shit like piss on their fans or start shitting themselves on stage.
Nails isn't powerviolence though.
Dropdead is pretty okay. Never got into Punch or Dangers. I'd rather listen to grind in most cases, although I was spinning some Hatred Surge a few weeks back.

Exactly. That shit is fucking stupid.
I agree with you. Physicality is fun but some people take it too far. I got hit in the head at the same show by some fucker who thought diving feet first on a shallow stage was smart.
I definitely dislike highly energetic shows where people are standing around though. Without a doubt the fucking worst.
OP here. I'm looking for the type of "aggressive" that is like Nails where the aggression is musically projected. Noise acts like Hanatarash are brutal for sure, but almost laughable at the extent they go. I think that bands that musically and vocally deliver aggression are much more effective with getting their message across.
Well there's a lot that are similar to Nails. The whole Entombed-core fad fits this bill (Black Breath, Young And In The Way, Trap Them).
And powerviolence is a good (better) way to go too. See >>52474981
You could go more crust/d-beat oriented like well-known acts Doom or Amebix. I'd recommend more modern stuff like Mass Grave or early Victims. Absolut's bandcamp debut was solid metallic d-beat too.
For grind I'd recommend starting with two classics: Napalm Death's From Enslavement To Obliteration and Assuck's Misery Index.
It's always been the opposite for me. Satan-worshipping music usually seems kitsch and tongue-in-cheek to me, rather than abrasive or threatening. It's like they know that they're just goofing off and being silly and nostalgic for old horror B-movies. That's probably why I only really listen to doom and find it more accessible than other metal subgenres.
Not a fan if the music, but Hated in America makes me think he's up there as far as an aggressive musician goes.
I don't know understand the question.
Aggressive people? or music? then what do you mean by most aggressive music?
war metal maybe?
as far as hip hop, Big L has a lot of pretty aggressive lyrics and Dead Prez's album "Let's Get Free Y'all" is for the most part
but Pharoah Monche "Simon Says" is still one of the most aggressive beats I've ever heard
but I already listen to those bands and I still like Nails soooooo fuck off
Can't get more aggressive than this.
>not In the Constellation of the Black Widow
Saw them once live, their sound was muddy as fuck so all you could distinguish (but then again I was completely drunk) was a fucking wall of distortion and blast beats.
Best fucking mosh pit I've been into, everyone in it was happy as fuck.
All of their albums are excellent; they all have a subtly different sound and approach to music.
The earlier you go, the grimmer and closer to black metal it gets, the later you go, the heavier and closer to post-hardcore it gets.
Listening to Desideratum right now.
Almost every song they made includes eschatological themes, as far as the titles go.
I love DG and yeah, they are pretty aggressive, but pic related is just the only fair answer to the question you posed.
Indian is the nastiest, sludgiest and most misanthropic band to walk the earth.
on the topic of anaal nathrakh just skip to 3:15 of this song and listen
holy fuck their vocalist is absolutely insane.
how does this surprise you? have you ever seen punk music discussed on this board? it's like middle schoolers talking politics.
>what is the best hardcore album and why is it double nickels on the dime?
>i personally like milkmen
>punk music was happening in both england and the states at the same time in the late 70s? bullshit man. punk is england's thing
this board knows nothing about the seminal music that inspired a lot of what they listen to today.
True. But what this album loses in speed it more than makes up for in slow, painfully violent repetition and sustained hate/anger/sonic-violence.
This band is the most evil-sounding, Metal shit I have ever heard.
Nails are one of the better grindy 'powerviolence revival' bands that have come out in the past few years. Far better than stuff like Full of Hell imo. Punch is barely powerviolence and Dangers isnt at all, seems like you're just trying to look cool.
Gnaw Their Tongues makes me feel more fear than it does anger. I wouldn't call it aggressive, but it definitely brings aggressive connotations to the table. It makes me sympathize with one receiving violence more so than one dishing it out.
Sterilizer is fucking insane but definitely not the most aggressive shit out there.
Never see 'em posted here but Cursed makes me want to tackle buildings when I listen to them. Total shame they got robbed and had to stop touring.
Fucking everything is on point with this band.
>Mh, what could this Anon hold to be more aggressive than Anaal Nathrakh
>who knows, I might come across something actually insanely brutal
>this gon be gud
They're just kitchen sink variety blackened death metal.
When I'm angry I tend do dislike even Anaal Nathrakh, Napalm Death or Pig Destroyer because I think (I don't know why) they're too "soft".
So, in line with the question that started this topic, which band is in your opinion the most violent?
If we're going by violence at live shows most beatdown hardcore bands apply, even if musically most of them are worthless.
just looked them up
>Hanatarash was notorious for its dangerous live shows. Some of the band's most infamous shows included Eye cutting a dead cat in half with a machete, strapping a circular saw to his back and almost cutting his leg off, and destroying part of a venue with a backhoe bulldozer by driving it through the back wall and onto the stage.
>At a 1985 show in Tokyo's Superloft, the audience was required to fill out waivers due to the possibility of harm caused by the show. The show was stopped due to Eye preparing to throw a lit molotov cocktail onto the stage. The performance cost ¥600,000 (approximately $9,000 US) in repairs.
My favorite GG Allin performance was when he was asked to give a reading or something at NYU, and he just went up, got naked, shoved a banana up his ass, and then threw the banana remains at the audience before being asked to leave.
Keep in mind Let's Get Free has the tracks Be Healthy, Happiness, Discipline, etc. Only half of it has the aggressive attitude, and it's not even that aggressive by hip hop standards
Godflesh is full of shit. If you've seen them live, you know what I mean.
I dont find godflesh to be cheesey though. I think it has a weird sort of maturity. it doesn't talk about satan, but really gates at topics which scare me. not really "teen music" per say
yeah no, they're not cheesy, or "teen", I just loved the hell out of them back when I was a youngin'. Streetsweeper was my shit. I always liked when Kid606 referenced Godflesh, made me feel warm inside.
