With a lack of time, or indeed ideas for good, substantial articles, I've opted instead to pen a barebones listicle. Angry songs have been a large part of my life ever since 2010, and thus I have quite a bit of experience in the area. They're all really bastard heavy tunes from subgenres of metal or hardcore that pretty much exist here as a collective list because I'm a fan of all of the artists mentioned and needed to write something this week.
White hot noise, like a precise distillation of The Dillinger Escape Plan on Calculating Infinity and the first Burnt By The Sun EP
Daryl Palumbo's finest aggressive vocal performance bar none.
One of the most intense bands under the "emoviolence" banner, merging the sharp guitar lines of Raein with the grinding brutality of a Usurp Synapse.
Big riffs played really loudly with a scary man shouting over them.
Groovy, bouncy, malevolent metallic hardcore from Chicago.
Scary industrial noise.
Scary industrial noise but with a more danceable edge.
An overlooked classic in the field of dirty hardcore, American Me had the street level punch of a band like Bury Your Dead but with the aggression and lairyness of a more metallic band.
A death metal classic, from the Sumerian chanting at the start to the furious blastbeats and Nergal's feral growl.
A UK grindcore/powerviolence classic right here folks.
The most horrible guitar tone ever put onto record.
Big riffs are the best, get high all the time.
Lovely angry mathy chaos.
Grindy, nasty, sonic hostility.
Lovely heavy breakdowns.
Menacing, malicious, street level hardcore.
Chaotic, nasty early deathcore.
The finest synergy of mathcore chaos and deathcore heft ever achieved.
More lovely mathy noises with a theatrical edge.
Chain Reaction metalcore from Orange County with big hair and an even bigger bite.
So there you have it, 20 angry tunes that aren't just AMVcore or whatever kind of spiteful tune has made it into the charts from across the spectrum of heavy music.
