Deathgrind (also known as death-grind and death/grind) is a mixture of the intensity, speed, and brevity of grindcore and the complexity of death metal. It differs from death metal in that guitar solos are often a rarity, shrieked vocals are more prominent as the main vocal style (though death grunts are still utilized and some deathgrind bands make more use of the latter vocal style), and songs are generally shorter in length, usually between one and three minutes. It is usually the band's aim to play high tempo and atonal music with little to no slower passages. But this style differs from grindcore in the far more technical approach and less evident hardcore punk influence and aesthetics. It is important to note that the genre does not include grindcore groups that later became death metal groups, such as Carcass and Napalm Death, though the latter's latest offerings, The Code Is Red...Long Live the Code and Smear Campaign, may be considered deathgrind.

Notable deathgrind bands include Asesino, Brujeria, Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, later Nasum, Pig Destroyer, Rotten Sound and Youth Deceiver.
