Established in 2016, Brain Stem isn’t the easiest to define with an exact subgenre. Noted to be groovy at times, but also technical when need be, they’ve made sure that their sound is not limited by one train of thought, molding metal the way they see fit. With their second Symptoms of Annihilation, Brain Stem is an outstanding example of what experimental death metal has to offer.
