Re: death metal

Yeah, definitely. Skolnick and Testament are one of my heroes! They do have a few death metal-sounding albums like Demonic and The Gathering but our boy Alex isn't on any of those. I grew up on Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura and a lot of thrash from the 80s and early 90s. That's how I fell in love with death metal because I was searching for something more 'extreme', if you will.

I do have a preference for the more old school, Florida-style of death metal but some of the new 'brutal death' bands are amazing as well like Defeated Sanity and Disgorge. I just don't like it that much when they tune really low. For me, D standard is heavy enough for death metal. Even E standard can be heavy...but that's another topic for another thread (I imagine there has been a lot of debates about lower tunings/heaviness around here ).
