Death Metal

Do you like it? Or do your ears bleed at the very though of a furry blue man with cookies?

This place seems to have a mixed opinion about this. We will see. Your age included would be nice, too.



PS This is the last poll I'm making for a long time, I swear
lol, forgot the poll itself X|

Re: Death Metal

... sure, been listening to it since the early 90s [i am now 30] though i haven't been able to listen a whole album without getting a headache nowadays :P
I kinda gotten over the fact @10 years ago [around the same time Korn, Slipknot and similar nu-metal bands were getting big] most DM bands were not really pushing the "sound" any further but focused on "going faster, stronger, harder..." blah blah blah. It's mainly attributed to this "keep it underground" mentality which i still have a hard time understanding to this day...
More so, I was heavily into the local scene and gotten over it cause:
a) you end up running into the same people... and you start to notice that everybody else is not eligible to legally drink :P
b) people who are all about death metal [or any sub-sect or similar genre] only know bands within said genre; everything else is moot. Even if the band is Opeth per-se, who's influenced by early death metal bands, is out of the radar cause "it's not heavy enough" or "too much clean singing."
c) the opposite viewpoint is when a "metal" band is doing something very heavy and technical yet it's not death metal by any 'standard' e.g. Meshuggah is not death metal [nor do i consider 'em as one] but some people [within the scene] see them in same category as Korn or Slipknot - "sellouts".
d) in a city like LA, death metal bands [or any underground metal band in general] play in the least likable venues e.g. a dive bar, a hole-in-a-wall club, or someone's backyard... not the best place to be carrying a high-end guitar/rig. If you're a touring band from LA however, you get to play the big venues...

otherwise, most of my friends are connected to that scene, one way or another, but i chose to "do my own thing" since playing metal gigs isn't a paying job, unless you're Dethklok lol
i still listen to my dm albums... except the bands i listen to are at least 10 years old [or have been around for that long]...

Re: Death Metal

One of my favorite death metal bands is Gutworm and I'm 28, not fat, short hair with a respectable job.

Re: Death Metal

My criteria for death metal:

-not melodic DM
-simultaneously ferocious, musical, purposeful, and emotional
-absolutely positively no breakdowns
-no high-pitched, inhaled vocals
-must have blast beats
-no diminished 7 arpeggios back to back. (the lamest excuse for technical death metal)
-no "djent"
-influenes that don't include The faceless, Job for a Cowboy, Veil of Maya, Whitechapel, etc.

What's wrong with the faceless? Other then "they're new"?

I guess this is for bands that use death vocals, considering by your standards 80% of those bands aren't death metal.

Deathcore is a pathetic form of Death Metal

I went to Gigantour a couple years ago just to catch Megadeth, and had to sit through a bunch of opening acts like "Job for a cowboy". It was dreadful.

Of course it was dreadful, Job for a Cowboy is Deathcore which is dreadful. But I like death metal. My fav band is Death.

How can you group The Faceless with these bands? I've been a metal/death metal fan for longer than I can remember. I really love Planetary Duality, if you haven't listen to that cd beggining to end, you can't really say you've heard The Faceless at their best. As for the other three "bands", call them what you want, but at least don't group The Faceless with them.

One of their songs has about an entire line of clean singing, only the lead guitarist has long hair, and one of them is black. That is like the opposite of TRUE death metal, man
Also, wikipedia says they're deathcore, so there you go. Personally I don't understand what so many people find so repulsing by metalcore (and by extension metalcore, but I digress).

Genre divisions are probably the most baffling thing in heavy metal, there's a new subdivision for every second band. You could call Children of Bodom Blackened Neo-powerspeed melodic death thrash metal but that wouldn't change the fact that they're a heavy metal band, same with Metallica, Death, The faceless, Job for a Cowboy, Judas priest, dragonforce, Suicide Silence, the Devil Wears Prada, so on and so forth. Whether or not you like the band is up to you to decide for the reasons you decide, but just because you don't like a few of them doesn't mean you should make up a new genre just to throw the heap of bands you don't like to avoid tainting your own 'pure' collection.

PS, what the hell is djent?

Re: Death Metal

Nothing wrong with The Faceless really, I just think they have horribly written riffs/songs that try way too hard to be fusion. My opinion of course. Some people eat it up, I think it sounds flat out stupid.

Death metal for me is Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal, Immolation, Krisiun, etc. I enjoy technical death metal when done tastefully, like Origin, Spawn of Procession, and Obscura, but most of these new bands are just ****ing off to diminished 7 arpeggio sweeps with a huge scale bass.

I also wanna add to my list:
-must not have neon colors on their shirts.
-must not have a phrase exceeding 4 words as their name (3 is really pushing it)
-musicians must not jump while on stage
-must not say "if anyone falls, pick them up" before commanding a mosh. (not that I want to see people trampled, its just *** to say)
-must not use a 6505 with vader cab, and an LTD. (Usually the Eclipse)

Re: Death Metal

Too many names for Metal nowadays. There should be 2 kinds. Metal you like and metal you don't. That being said, some is good and some is not.
