Swiss heavy metal bands.

Post#1 » Mon May 11, 2009 11:42 pm

I only know one band from this country and it´s Coroner (they rule!), is there any band in the line of heavy/speed metal with clean voice??

You must get 'Apocalypse-S/T', one of the best thrash/speed metal albums ever (IMO) with kinda-clean vocals... awesome! ... dZViewItem

Your label Blower Records has been re-releasing some cool Swiss classics recently - Carrion, Killer, Bloody Six, etc.

Also Poltergeist, Megora, Emerald, Battalion, as well as the mighty Messiah are all notable Swiss bands worth some attention in my opinion.

As Black Axe said Drifter is a must, although I'd recommend to start with "Reality Turns to Dust" LP

thirded. All old stuff including Choirs Of Horror is unbelievable. Also Infected gets my support. Great Death Metal.

Additional Swiss stuff:
Hellhammer/Celtic Frost => no comment

old Alastis/old Samael/Misery=> great old morbid doomy Black Metal (Misery sounds like first Samael minus the devilworshippin)

Azrael/Damnatory/Equimanthorn/Moribund/old Tiburon - great Death Metal forces

Babylon Sad => avantgarde DeathDoom, reminded me a lot on first Pyogenesis MCD with even more weird stuff.

Bloodstar => Avantgarde EBM/Metal stuff. The fuckin' best combination of this genre I ever heard.

Calhoun Conquer/Excruciation/Carrion/old Drifter => great old Thrash, similar to German mid/late-80es stuff.

Sadness/Chiva - more avantgarde Death Doom stuff

Krokus - Headhunter LP. A must.

One of my favorite Swiss bands is Excelsis. They're a bit like Blind Guardian, but slower, darker and less bombastic. The vocals are kind of rough, though (similar to Chris from Grave Digger).
