Nearly 20 years ago, some bay area thrashers mixed death metal and grindcore with the kind of energetic heavy metal that has always sold out big halls, and came up with Exhumed. Since that time, Exhumed has delighted metal fans across the globe with its accessible but gore-obsessed form of death metal.

Tech-death blasters Suffocation meanwhile have transitioned from old school death metal to a more modern sound, and are delivering technical chops and skull-pounding beats with unparalleled aggression. Old-schoolers may not find the new direction to be to their taste, but it seems popular with the newer generation who expect their metal to have some hardcore in it.

Don’t take it from me — you can experience these bands live and up close and personal on tour.

    This is why money in music sucks! Cerrito and Smith left because the band wanted to get more commercial. Now Frank Mullen acts like he’s Phil Anselmo, the riffs are *core, too many breakdowns, and the lyrics make no sense. They’re doing it for the cash, because everyone wants to own a home and retire. That’s what sucks about the music business. Since most people are stupid, you have to make stupid music to thrive. Or do you?

      It’s not like dumbing down their music expanded their fan base. Their new material isn’t quite dumb enough for deathcore kiddies, but just dumb enough to make their actual fans disown them. They really shot themselves in the foot.

      The saddest part? The band probably regards Pierced from Within as ‘unfocused’ and ‘too ambitious’, as is often the case with sold out death metal bands.
