I call some of these bands over-technical death metal, where they go for such complexity by showing off their best skills but it just becomes a boring listen for many reasons. Like this constant delivery of riffs feels just too much at most moments, it never ends. And their album arts all look very similar, they often share similar themes too. It makes their albums unremarkable and sound like it was made by the same band but in different studio. Like, you’re listening to Neuraxis and it’s actually Psycroptic but it might be Deeds of Flesh too because their general theme is very similar, or maybe it’s Hour of Penance? You can’t separate some bands apart, and once you try to dig into one it just doesn’t work to me. Archspire is fun one, by the way (I have their shirt) because how ridiculous they sound. From all of these bands I would separate Gorguts (obviously), Gorod, Anata and Beyond Creation. Not sure if Ulcerate counts. These work for me because they just blend other genres but still keep it tech death.
over-technical death to me are these:
