Widely known fact: Japan does everything better. EVERYTHING. Especially BROOTAL FUCKING SLAMMZ. Here are two albums to prove it, bookending an entire decade of slam metal domination...
VOMIT REMNANTS - SUPREME ENTITY (1999)
Anyone else find it ironic that the best goddamn New York-style death metal ever recorded came out of Tokyo? Supreme Entity will mosh your fucking balls off, despite the fact that their "drummer" is credited with playing "triggers and cymbals", rather than "drums" (WTF?). Gravity blasts, caveman breakdowns, gurgling vocals, wallet chains, hoodies, and beanies. Total puking violent Neanderthal DEATH. Superb.

GOREVENT - ABNORMAL EXAGGERATION (2008)
Nine years later, you still can't stop the MOSH. Slower and simpler than Vomit Remnants -- Think Niigata City Wigger Slam as opposed to Tokyo NYDM. Allow Gorevent themselves to explain:
"Gokucho and Sonobe (ex-REST IN GORE) started a deathmetal unit with Kasahara BRUTAL in Niigata City at the end of the year 2004, it was the very beginning of GOREVENT. Abe joined the band in 2005 as the first permanent drummer, then GOREVENT got started sick'n brutal activity. The beginning of the year 2006, Takashi (a.k.a.ILLEGAL ABORTION -Vo.&B.) joined the band as a second vokill vomitter. In the fall of the year, Abe left the band, Moriyama (ex-TESTICLES VIRUS) joined us as a replacement drummer. In the middle of February, 2007, Gokucho switched his equipment from a vokill to an axe so as to develop the whole sound ever more brutal."
