Core is false metal

Core is false metal

From Asphyx, who despite penning a turd of a title track may have a valid point of view:

Lyrically it is about: A rage against all those so called death metal bands with their hyper technical übershit which has, in fact, NOTHING to do with the real essence of death metal at all. It seems like a contest of who can play the fastest, most technical drumbeats and riffs, some deep gutteral growls etc.... and they dare to call it death metal! Fuck it. When all that shit ends, you're left to wonder with "hey... what the fuck was that all about? Where's the song? Where's the good catchy riff?" What the hell am I listening to? Those dudes better listen to Hellhammer’s ‘Apocalyptic Raids’ and learn what real death metal is. I know it's all a matter of taste, but please stop calling it death metal since they don't have a clue what it really means. We get comments by saying these things sometimes, but we don't care. People commenting on this are not death metal fans in the first place. They've just been in the scene for ten years or so and think Nile is the first death metal band. Death metal is in the soul... not in the mind.

Sad truth is that this track brings them closer to core than death metal, but who can dislike the message.

Asphyx are some of the most interesting musicians in death metal, but how many times are they gonna let the metal community down in their career with their attempts ot be different?

But yeah, it's like when nu-metal bands write songs about how angry they are about sell-outs.  Asphyx would make a better point against core by not making core, rather than just talking the talk.
