* LaserGuidedKarma: "Truculent Antipathy" has the female victim come back and give her male abuser a taste of his own medicine.

* FrankensteinsMonster[=/=]FleshGolem: The end result of "Cognitive Sedation Butchery" courtesy of a MadScientist.



* MisogynySong: This is slam. You kind of have to expect it. Significantly downplayed starting with ''Unleash'', focusing on warfare, as well as some of the gorn lyrics being less sexual and more straight-up violent. [[WordOfGod According to Brad Fincher]], they were attempting to be as dirty and filthy as possible both musically and lyrically on ''Molesting the Decapitated'', which led to the band going out of their way to come up with the most vile lyrics that they could muster. He's totally aware of the implications of the lyrics (especially since he, Ruben Rosas, and Kevin Clark all have daughters) and has gone on record as being sick of misogyny in slam, and his current stance on his band's own lyrics seems to be something along the lines of "it was the best that we could do to accomplish our goals at the time".

''Obscene Majesty'' avoids this entirely save for one track that starts like one, but quickly [[MisandrySong flips it]] [[MuggingTheMonster on its head]].

After Rosas was released, the band went through multiple lineup shifts that ultimately resulted in failure and the band folding until 2005, when Rosas, Majewski, and Knupp decided to start over, with Eric Park (drums) completing the lineup. They quickly recorded and self-released ''Butcher the Weak'' later that year before inking a record deal with Brutal Bands the following year, subsequently re-recording and releasing ''Butcher'' on the label. Tragedy struck when Knupp died of multiple organ failure in 2007, but the band kept going, releasing ''Unleash the Carnivore'' in 2009 before signing with Relapse the following year. After several years of touring and other assorted odds and ends, they released ''Conceived in Sewage'' in February of 2013. Numerous personal troubles resulted in the band dropping off of a tour with Dying Fetus later that year and resulted in Rosas and Park leaving; nonetheless, Majewski stated that it was not over and that they were merely reassessing things. After rumors that they were going to reform with most of the ''Molesting'' lineup and play the Summer Slaughter started floating around in early 2014, the band finally announced on May 19, 2014 that they would be continuing on with Rosas on vocals, Andrews on guitar, and Fincher on drums, along with newcomer Dave Spencer (Fincher's bandmate in Meshiha) on bass. Various scattered shows have followed since then along with some vague talk of a new album, and as of 2016, Clark has returned yet again to make it a two-guitar lineup.

After several years of scattered fests and tours and vague talk of a new album, they finally made it back into the studio around the very end of 2018, and ''Obscene Majesty'' was later announced for a mid-summer release.



* StartMyOwn: Brian Wynn and Brad Fincher started Meshiha in 2009, though Wynn left that band as well in 2013. Majewski himself went on to start Kill Everything in 2016, which is largely in the same spirit as Meshiha.

Added DiffLines:

* ApocalypseCult: "Xenoglossia", more specifically a suicide cult.


Added DiffLines:

* MuggingTheMonster: "Truculent Antipathy", where the would-be rapist targets a SerialKiller who was waiting for someone like him to target her, and is then [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured to death]] for as long as possible by his would-be victim before she finally lights him on fire and then ''[[ImAHumanitarian eats some of his burnt remains]]''.


* [[DeathMetal Slam Death Metal]]

to:

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: "A Virulent Strain of Retaliation" is something of a deconstruction of this, as the protagonist is consumed by their sheer hatred for the other party and their obsessive thoughts about carrying out the most violent, gruesome, over-the-top revenge campaign possible, and while they are at least nominally aware of the certainty that it will end in [[MoralEventHorizon moral perdition]] and/or their own death, they simply don't care.
* [[DeathMetal Slam Death Metal]]Metal]]: Most definitely the TropeMaker and TropeCodifier for slam, but it is highly debatable whether they were the UrExample or not, as numerous bands were releasing slammy demos before them, and Music/{{Suffocation}}, Music/DyingFetus, Music/{{Skinless}}, Music/BrokenHope, Internal Bleeding (who coined the term "slam" to refer to their style), Pyrexia, and Mortal Decay are all at least viewed as proto-slam.

* RevisitingTheRoots: ''Obscene Majesty'' is a return to the ''Molesting the Decapitated'' era stylistically with better production values, tighter and more technically advanced performances, and a different lyrical approach (nixing the rampant {{Misogyny Song}}s of their earlier material); in short, it is ''Molesting'' if they had made it now instead of back in 1999.

Devourment is an American slam death metal band, and quite possibly THE slam band at that. Categorized by their ultra-low vocals, heavily mosh-oriented riffing that focuses less on technicality and more on sheer, unrelenting heaviness, and highly complex and technical drumming that focuses less on blasting and more on winding grooves, Devourment is generally the first band that people think of when they think of slam, and for good reason.
