Heavy Music - Without Guitars


#1

This is a really great starting point for a thread. Who would you add to this top 10 list or suggest people investigate?

Great to see Pharmakon in there, who was one of the best things I saw at OYA last year. So incredibly intense. If you love HEALTH and haven’t checked her out, do so, asap.


#2

A few Liars albums are quite heavy minus guitars


#3

is bass allowed?

if so then No Spill Blood.


#4

quite a lot of punk jazz stuff really


#5

Woah, listening to Wreck and Reference now = amazing stuff!

Er…I don’t think Perturbator uses guitars, all synths and drum machines innit? This is a beast:

Agree with @Icarus-Smicarus on No Spill Blood, top band, totes heavy.

Some of the It Follows soundtrack by yer man Disasterpiece was sickeningly heavy’noisy as well - the tracks Doppel and Father in particular.

Found out about them on here. Great album


#7

(guitar samples, but not Proper Guitars)


#8

Wreck and Reference are fantastic, really hoping Pharmakon has another release soon as well. I’ll add Dreamcrusher to this, though it’s more on the Prurient/Noise end of things.
