    I like to listen to the more technical stuff:

    Death, Cynic, Aghora, Atheist, etc. but I don't follow that genre too closely.

    Amen to that AllodoX!!!


    I may not like metal too much anymore, but that is a good song.

    IMO, all death metal sounds the same to me...

    True.On guitar,and bass,all they do is de-tune and play the first 3 frets,then for the solos the last 3 frets:D

    Although metal drummers are always really good such as the dude from Slayer,that guy can play so fast.
  9. I like death metal a lot...mostly the industrial, technical stuff, though, a la Mudvayne, Fear Factory, Living Sacrifice (who are sometimes refered to as "white" metal), etc.
    Industrial and progressive metal are my main interests musically right now. :)
  10. That's not death metal! I think slayer is more thrash than death metal. Death metal is about pushing the limits of heavy and technicallities... slayer just kick butt! :D

    As for the greatest death metal song, i'd agree with the others and say,

    Oh, and about death metal all sounding the same, it does until you are exposed to it for a while, then you really notice the differences. Anyways, I used to listen to a lot of metal, including death metal, but now I'm really turned onto funk, ska and classic rock.

    I use to be heavily into death metal, even then I didn't notice much difference, if any between most bands.

    I used to be into black, death, thrash, you-name-it metal...but then all the griping and bitching a moaning from the more useless of fans got to me. Go to Bolt.com and go the metal board. That's pretty much why I don't bother anymore. Sold my metal CDs that I didn't listen to, and moved on.

    That, and the vocals were kinda grating. I liked the more fluid, normal voices, like James Hetfeild on MOP and RTL. Not the stuff that is growled like you have a mouthfull of razors.

    To me, those metal years weren't wasted...just misspent.

    Yeah Slayer is a thrash band,but they do talk about death,doesnt that count a little?:(
  14. I don't know if it is "death metal" per se, but Slayer, Fear Factory, Crowbar, Biohazard, and Mudvayne are some of the harder metal stuff I listen to these days.
  15. I like some that doesnt have the drum beat I lothe. I call it the "Play fast without careing what I hit!" beat. Its basically a punk beat sped up really fast. I hear that to often in death/black metal. But I do like other death metal and such it mainly depends if they sound unique or not...Why is it in metal of allmost any form, you are more respected if you do the same thing the last four bands did before you?

    Well, They really aren't that hard or fast (save Slayer). Mudvayne, while they have some nice chops, are mostly considered hard rock, while FF is more on the industrial side of things, not really Death metal. Crowbar...I've heard it called Sludge Metal, and while metal, they are more doom/heavy metal than the death contingent we're working under here. Biohazard is...well, thrash, sorta, with a little more Urban in them.

    Biohazard were the original rap/rockers. Screw Rage, or Limp, or Korn, or even Stuck Mojo. It was Biohazard, and they did it the way it SHOULD have been done.
  18. I listen to a variety of metal, some of my fav metal bands are: Messhuggah, Death (RIP CHuck), IN FLAMES!!.........these are too many to name but, those were my top three.

    I also listen to alot of old school metal..........like black sabbath and the older Dio....(holy diver)

    It's cool to see some ppl rock alittle metal in talkbass........hehe

    \m/ rock on my brothers in metal \m/
