Beneath The Massacre

Technical death metal band Beneath the Massacre hails from Montreal, Canada, where it was formed in 2004 by vocalist Elliot Desgagnés, guitarists Christopher Bradley and Jonathan Dubeau, bassist Dennis Bradley, drummer Justin Rousselle, and, for a brief spell, keyboard player Christian Pépin. Inspired by the ultra-brutal and hyper-complex death metal aesthetic pioneered by Canadian clinicians such as Cryptopsy and Neuraxis, Beneath the Massacre followed their debut 2005 EP Evidence of Inequity, with two highly regarded (but difficult to digest) full-lengths released through Prosthetic Records: 2007's Mechanics of Dysfunction, and 2008's Dystopia. Both albums were cut by the paired down lineup of Desgagnés, the Bradley siblings, and Rousselle, who later embarked on their first headline tour of the U.S. in 2008, supported by Arsis and Ion Dissonance, before joining the Summer Slaughter trek, also featuring Necrophagist, Cephalic Carnage, and Cattle Decapitation, among others. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

brutal vocals, brutal guitar, and amazing drums.
brutal
follow for follow on instagram, I love metal! deathgrindbr u t a l
The drumming is on par with some of the best out there \m/
Badass vocals
I like the way their going with their albums, except for the fact that their songs are getting shorter. I hope they can come up with some material that would make a killer album. Theses guys are cool either way.
Seen these guys live twice, f**kin sick!
It blows my mind how good the drummer is....... F**KIN AWESOME
And all this time I thought Canadians were peaceful...
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
played with these sickos at the summer slaughter in fort worth with decapitated and necrophagist ! SICK
Wtf?? Even black veil brides is better then this s**t!!! Haha jk ppl don't get all aggressive

I don't see the Decapitated similarity.. . but this might be my favorite band along with Nile, Origin, The Faceless, and maybe Necrophagist I guess, to name a few
They remind me a lot of Decapitated, but more along the lines of their older music (like Winds of Creation), which I actually happen to like more than their newer music. I remember when Beneath The Massacre was all drum machine and sloppy, but they've really improved over the years.
At least when Beneath The Massacre plays a "breakdown" it's not the typical boring breakdown as 95% of bands that do them. They do syncopated and technical breakdowns, if that's what they should be called. These dudes get better and better with each album they write.
listen to VIRAEMIA and you might learn sumfinz (;
that wall of noise you speak of is your feeble brain not being able to handle what your ears are listening too.
listen to NECROPHAGIST . . . . a n d u might just understand.. . .
I can disagree with you mlrigalavurs o , it's not that it's betcha can't listen mentality, it's their sound and their intentions are to make the listener keep listening to the song several times so then it's easier to digest and then by the 3rd or fourth time, the listener can get into it and be like wtf that's sick. it's about the ambition to want to know what their playing. it's just about the dedication
Beneath the Massacre may play with Betcha can't play this mentality, but it seems like they play with a Betcha can't listen to this for more than ten minutes kinda mentality as well. They're skilled, but they can't write an enjoyable song to save their life.
I'm a hater of breakdowns too, and this break down just made me s**t my pants. DO IT AGAIN!~
Wall of noise? Isn't that what it's all about buddy? Love the noise makes me go fukn' ape shat!!!!!
Tremolo picking + wall of noise = BORING ZZZZzZzZzZzZ z
(Fleshgod and Penance have less breakdowns)
Fleshgod Apocalypse and Hour of Penance are similar to Origin/BTM
ALL SHALL PERISH too....can't forget my Oaktown homies!!! EAST BAY RULES!
The freakin best tech deth ever! DECAP, NECRO, KRISIUN...I need more bands like these where musicians actually get how metal is supposed to be brought.
Their new EP is easily better than anything they have done before
I hate breakdowns and only a few bands actually use them with good sense and taste...and these guys are one of them...damn good, killer, brutal music...
They have ultra good memory????
How do they remember how to play each song?
Brad is wrong.
No contest, BTM blows necrophagist out of the water. I like both bands but btm is more all around talented in all areas.
popncasey
Nick, they are both extremely technical in their own aspects. Look at the song Stabwound by Necrophagist , that song is extremely technical, easily comparable to a lot of songs by Beneath the Massacre.
Regardless of who's more technical, Beneath the massacre is consistantly making new music. Necrophagist are extremely talented, but apparently dont have the creativity to keep pushing out music like BTM is. I saw necrophagist twice, once in like 2004 and once last summer and they were still playing all the same songs..Two very good albums, but beneath the massacre KEEPS me interested. The new song on their myspace is SICK.
aha props to vinsanity for calling those mallcore f**ks gapers, that s**t is soooo hot topic. And to brad necrophagist is like half the tempo and 1/4 as technical as these guys, they play with a betcha cant play this mentality and its more complex than any of necrophagist s riffs, i have the disco's of both bands im pretty sure i know what im talking about
from what i heard it sounds like technical death. Not as technical as Necrophagist but not bad.
Ha, dude I was trollin. Couldn't you tell?
Well put man. I really dont care for scene kids at all. Nothing gayer than a bunch of p**sies ruining a perfectly good mosh pit by banding together and flailing their arms and legs around in the air. And they all act the same way too its really annoying. Like ok we get it, your differnt from everybody else, congrats. Ohh and not to mention Deathcore is a discrace to the metal genre.
hardcore kids are the new scensters herring you really want to label yourself as someone who is just in it cuz you think its cool or tough but cant handle real talented music? id much rather tell people im a death metal head than a core poser, but your lady prob dont know the dif and hardcore sounds so much cooler so go with it gaper. its all semantics anyway, if it makes you feel cooler....
Yeah, I have two drumsets, a ludwig and some off brand one that I got when I first started playing for like $300. For some reason, I use the off brand one. Probably because I abuse it heavily. with my pearl snare and pretty nice cymbals. Z custom crash, Z custom splash, A custom projection ride, some Zildjian china. I'll probably switch over to the ludwig soon tho cuz it's way nicer, but my drums are in storage (at my moms) until im able to get into a new place anyways..Dam n apartments..
Yeah the drummer of my first band had a pork pie. The style of music we played (hardcore/pu n k kind of, whateverwhat e v e r I was 18) wasn't good for such a loud a** snare tho, so it wasn't that great for that band. I can see it being perfect for a DM band. Or any metal, really. I have a 12 inch pearl firecracker that's pretty damn loud and since it's so small, has a nice crack to it when you hit, so it generally can be heard through everything else really well.
I've never had a problem with my bass drum, I was more thinking a snare would be a main concern, if anything. I've never used triggers or a mic for any of my live drumming. I agree, if a drummer CAN pull off being loud enough without sacrificing speed, then hey that's some talent and/or some strong a** limbs. And no, I wasn't thinking anything about his speed, i can play double bass pretty quick (never timed it..) and sound projection isn't a problem in the least bit.
I wouldn't necessarily say that triggers are CHEATING. Its a very obvious advantage, but not really cheating considering you're still doing the work, just don't have to hit as hard. BTM uses triggers all day. Like with gravity blasts, it's not too simple to double hit that fast AND get a lot of sound from it. And if you're going to do it, you better be fully aware that people probably don't even hear your snare when you play. And no this isn't uneducated guessing, this comes from experience. ;)
BUT GUYS! I CAN'T TELL MY GURL FRAN THAT I'M HARDCORE IF THEY ISN'T DEATHCORExxx ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! IT REALLY DOES MATTER!!
Too bad they don't have evidence of inequity on here. It's a shame.
