"Ritual of Infinity" needs a quality remaster and possibly addition of selected tracks from the EPs. I don't know if their style is relevant now, and I don't trust them to re-invent themselves.

Nu-Death =

Variant A: melodic heavy metal + death/black vocals.

Variant B: metalcore with emo elements, hybridized with percussive death metal.

Both are HIV+ in artistic senses.

Their first album and live EP/LP are good; the rest, honestly, is forgettable.

When I was young Thrash Metal was Dark Angel, Exodus, Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Vio-lence, Sodom etc.

Most people called Slayer "black metal" back then, too!

Yes, it's a continuing series of thoughts.

And agreed, metal has been in decline for some time. 15 years? Well, that's about when speed metal died - 1990ish.

Death metal had its day - 1985-1993.

Black metal had its day - 1990-1995.

Thrash had its day - 1983-1986.

To me, it seems like we should purge the non-meaningful so that there is a total void into which meaning is encouraged to grow. Nature abhors a vacuum, and while there's a vacuum of quality in metal now, there's no vacuum of shit filling it, and it's that shit that prevents better things from rising.

...it was an improvement after "Domination," but "Far Beyond Heretic" was a terrible reversion to the same dung-minded outlook.

I need to add Masochism, but cannot find a link anymore. HIV+

Cynic = seems very influenced by Kong ("Phlegm" and before).

Chuck + Death = the most obvious interpretation of death metal, thus overpopular. Musical contributions not covered by Possessed and Asphyx: zero.

Probably Slayer and Bathory should be reversed :)

I'm not really sure doom metal ever had much to offer. The genre is steeped in self-pity and self-drama. That's sort of what Britney Spears offers, and her music moves more quickly and is more musically schooled. Scientifically, why should I listen to doom metal when there's Britney Spears, all image considerations (that I look like a fag listening to Britney) aside?

"Thrash metal" is a nonsense term. Expands to "crossover punk-metal heavy metal" - means nothing.

Necrovore, Hellhammer, Possessed, Sepultura, Slayer, Massacra, Sodom and Bathory all had some degree of hybrid; the death/black styles are similar not only to each other but to the work of Discharge, which, coincidentally, came out in 1982. Neoclassical heavy metal + Discharge = death/black metal.

And really, who gives a fuck.

"Old-school death metal band takes one possible interpretation of the genre, which is using elements of the process of order to express simple but inevitable deconstruction."

Texas guttural percussive death metal from ex-Acerbus drummer and tattoo artist Jonzig. If you're going to listen to this style, this band has more to offer than most.


Their website is a complete piece of shit however. Navigate in text only mode!

WikiPedia's "Death Metal" entry has been edited ...to make it less insane...

Death metal is a type of music influenced by heavy metal music and hardcore punk that was born in the early 1980s but fully developed by the end of the decade.

Commonly recognized characteristics include rhythmic, chromatic progressions and a narrative or "story telling" song structure, such that there is not a verse-chorus cycle as much as an ongoing development of themes and motifs. Aesthetically, it is usually identified by violent rhythm guitar, fast percussion and dynamic intensity. "Blast beats" are frequently used to add to the ferocity of the music. The death grunts (guttural roars) or "growls" are distorted and incomprehensible. Similarly, those not familiar with the genre sometimes confuse it with "death rock", which is an entirely different musical classification altogether.


So far, that's all that has been changed, but it's an improvement in technical language and accuracy of topic. Please support us in this quest to get our favorite commie homosexual hippie democrat "open source" dictionary to recognize death metal, not for wackypedophile's sake but for death metal's.
