a brief guide to deathnroll 1992-2000

in case you want to listen to nobody's favourite subgenre this genre is so dead that besides like 5 of these you can easily argue that they don't even qualify.
1Furbowl
Those Shredded Dreams


1992 - A crossing point from more traditional Swedish death metal to the style Entombed soon championed, Furbowl's effort isn't bad at all but isn't quite as catchy as later attempts.
2Entombed
Wolverine Blues


1993 - If you know any death n' roll album, it's going to be this one, and for good reason. At once thuggish and ridiculously catchy, as well as extremely heavy, this is basically a must listen for fans of heavy music, particularly if you're a fan of the more visceral metalcore and hardcore this influenced. Check Eyemaster and Out of Hand.
3Edge of Sanity
Until Eternity Ends


1994 - For whatever reason, both with and without Dan Swano, Edge of Sanity took occasional stabs at music that is probably best described as death n' roll. The title track is pretty much a exact shot at the style, but Eternal Eclipse is a bit more "melodeathy". Bleed is again closer to more standard death n' roll with a much punkier style. A good EP for sure, not near the top of the Edge of Sanity discog but well written and catchy.
4Carcass
Swansong


1995 - Pretty sure I've never heard this album get a lick of praise, but I think that's largely just because of comparisons to Carcass's other releases. This album had some legitimately superb tracks, with great musicianship and some extremely catchy moments. Keep on Rotting in the Free World, Black Star, Room 101, Polarized and Generation Hexed are the take away tracks if you wanna dodge some of the stinkers.
5Gorefest
Soul Survivor


1996 - Catchier and less muddy than their proto-deathnroll album Erased, Soul Survivor is largely good but is held back by a pretty weak vocal performance. The riffs are consistently catchy, and the songs are generally pretty polished, with well crafted transitions. The title track is particularly worth checking, along with Freedom and Chameleon.
6Illdisposed
There's Something Rotten In The State Of Denmark


1997 - Another album held back by its vocal performance, this one nontheless has some really sick guitar solos and just plain solid groove riffs. It's also got far more of the melodeath sound to it than most of the other albums here, with songs like Near The Gates sounding like, uh, At The Gates. The Wake Up Dead cover blows though so avoid that at all costs. Band is generally very dumb but this album is honestly pretty fun.
7Benediction
Grind Bastard


1998 - A bit chunkier and less bluesy than most death n' roll, Grind Bastard is an okay offering from the British band. It's still groovy and has some catchy moments, but is generally more reminiscent of very stripped down grindcore or early metalcore.
9Korpse (UK)
Revirgin


couldn't find an album for 2000 lmao
this is a pretty weird scottish death n' roll album, but it's cool i guess, well produced and manages to sound upbeat despite some really doomy bits, check em
10Six Feet Under
Haunted


some people say this band counts as death n roll but i think they're just bad
11Loudblast
Fragments


Carried by the fact that Loudblast were amazing before. not totally bad but you'd have no reason to listen to this tbh. also barely qualifies so iddkkkkkkk
12Entombed
Uprising


Entombed were still pretty good at this overall style for another 10 years. Songs like Say It In Slugs are worth a check for their punky intensity.
13Dismember
Massive Killing Capacity


some asshole called this death n' roll but this album belongs to less dead genres of music like regular ol swedish death metal. i can see the similarities but don't be fooled
