I don't really mind, in a way, it means I can spread the word more for when people come back to look for news on Cephalotripsy, I can do a Mel B-esque "LISTEN TO MY BAND!!!"

Guttural Engorgement and Abominable Putridity are good examples of modern slam in my opinion. I think they're hyped up a bit too much by MySpace scenester cunts, which may reduce their appeal to a more discernining death metal crowd, but that's not their fault and I judge them on the music alone.

Waking The Cadaver = Wigger Slam.
The Partisian Turbine = Similar hardcoresque cuntism

There's definitely a "fad" slam thing going on, but like I said, sort the wheat from the chaff. I'm not going to let some beatdown wielding chimp dictate what slam bands are cool and which aren't, whether said chimp likes them or not.

I like metal, and it's pretty obvious to me which of these bands are metal and which are just band-wagon hopping flash-in-the-pan fucks.

Well said! A lot of this stuff, like Guttural Engorement just doesn't bother me, but when it comes to stuff like Waking the Cadaver, I've a pretty vehement hatred of them. It's the difference between death metal mongs who listen to anything with a blast and slam in it (GE), and the hordes of scene kids who only listen to a band cos they look right (WTC). You can bet that if WTC had long hair and wore proper trousers and DM shirts, they wouldn't have even half the fans they do... after all, they're mediocre at their best.
I agree with Tom also on the new slam trend. It seemed to emerge when Devourment reformed, and since then has continued to get bigger and more annoying. I have total respect and love for Devourment, but I do miss the days when they were a more cult following. I remember a time when I had the only Devourment shirt at a gig, now I go to a DM gig and there's a sea of the bastards.

On the subject of taking over threads, I'm pretty happy now, as it's becoming as elitist as Cruciamentum should be! Haha!

I totally agree, I just don't find anything interesting in GE or AP (although I can enjoy AP sometimes.) I don't question their "metalness" in any way though.

I do wish some bands would stop copying Devourment and copy Disgorge instead hehe. I often think Disgorge are too brutal for most of these slam "kids".

Course Disgorge are too brutal for the slam kids (apart from Condemned) to copy. They're also too good at their instruments. I'm glad nobody really mercilessly rips them off though, I love Disgorge, but a load of clones would be really tedious.
