Re: What is your opinion of death metal?
While some of it is cool and very technically proficient (btw, that's usually good in my book), i just can't take it for very long. It just gets kind of boring and starts to sound the same.
there are some great riffs, but often they get buried and turn into mush... often they're atonal (not that atonal's always bad) and just completely unmelodic and don't really leave me with much.
and as far as singers - im a dream theater fan. I can block out ANY singer! hurray for instrumentals! the other downside to the vocals for me is the usual lack of humor (ok, not just death metal, but most metal,and well, most music in general (yes there are some wonderful exceptions)). i don't know why everyone thinks that 1) vocals are neccessary and 2) they have to be serious or insightful.
the coolest thing for me in death metal is the double bass! f**k yeah!
