I'm gonna be 70 and listening to Morbid Angel and Watain while chopping my grandsons heads off and licking my grandaughters cunts like syrup.

The future? All of the bands today rip them off. I asked a friend recently what modern death metal would be like if Devourment didn't exist.

what i meant was, "due to the fact that every slam band ever has taken from the book of devourment they are legendary. however their new album is "the future of slam" essentially setting the standard for all other slam, again."

god i made that way too hard, even my explanation of my explanation sucks. moar words about devourment

I think most of the bands listed in here won't be relevant in the next 15 years. Atleast to vast majority, no one will care or remember about someone like Torche or Watain. I think it may even be a stretch to say that people getting into music 15 years from now will really care about someone like Disembowelment.

Unfortunately the people that listen to these bands make up a small percentage of the actual "metal" world. Mastodon and Bolt Thrower are possibly the only 2 bands mentioned in this thread so far that i could see people really being into in the next 15 years. The bands that are going to be talked about and still seeked out by most are going to be the big bands. Whether you like it or not, a band like Lamb Of God will be more looked at as a Metal Classic in 15 years. If you want to go, non-main stream then i'll give Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse their dues as well.

What's a classic to you is not a classic to all.

edit: I glanced over Napalm Death being mentioned. They will definitely be metal classic in 15 years. They should probably be considered a metal classic already.

and the original question wasn't whether or not something is "classic", it was who's music will potentially be relevant 15 years from now. which i find it extremely hard to believe that to the death metal and/or doom metal world a band such as disembowelment wouldn't be relevant.

obviously. this is all an opinion based topic anyway.

I just personally think in order for a band to be considered a classic they really need to be a juggernaut of their genre. I just don't think in 15 years someone is going to be talking about how influential a band like Watain was. I think people will still be harping over bands like Emperor, Dissection, and Mayhem. Even a band like Dimmu Borgir will get more praise amongst black metal. Although i think Watain is good, they won't last the test of time.

Same goes for your personal favorites in Devourment. Before you jump all over me, i love Devourment but i think them and the entire genre of "slam" metal will be a passing trend. In 15 years from now, i don't think we'll hear much on Devourment or the entire genre.

Bands like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, and Suffocation will go down as classics. A band like Dying Fetus will probably sneak in there too. A band like Origin most likely won't.
