Yea but how many bands have you heard that have all of those and still ****ing suck? I think it goes deeper than that but I'm probably just over complicating things.

Maybe it's stupid to even think about but I find it interesting.

This is a good question but somewhat muddled by putting the focus on bands. It would probably be better to focus on albums specifically, as many good bands can turn to shit and awful bands sometimes have one good album in them.

The best death metal albums tend to break from convention, even conventions of metal in some sense, to create terrifying abstract music. Since guitars are the lead 'voice' in metal and vocals are indiscernible, great death metal focuses all its energy into constructing a sequence of riffs that tell something like a story formed from impression of impact and atmosphere.

Sometimes (a good example would be Autopsy) the works of death metal bands resemble collections of spooky / horror stories. The type that might be found in anthology works. They are all similar in nature, despite being seemingly unrelated, and in aggregate have the effect of forcing you to confront the absolute sublime horror of death and the unknown / unknowable, placing man in his rightful place in a vast, cold, indifferent universe of abominations.

Also, gotta luv those chugga chugga riffs

Since you've all decided to let this place fall into ruin, I've had to start seeking out new music elsewhere. I've journeyed far into the cyber abyss and this is what I've found:



Psyched for this! Drops July 31st. Kind of getting a diSEMBOWELMENT vibe which is not a bad (or common) thing.

EDIT: Maybe it's just the production but this really reminds me of The Ruins of Beverast too.

comon playa I can show you a good time

But I'm not hearing too much else other than death/doom stuff. Doesn't quite have the appeal as dISEMBOWELMENT. I get where you're coming from though. Like the space between chords and then faster riffing sections throughout. It's not bad.

****ing gay, but not as gay as teased hair and a pentagram on your pvc sleeveless bondage shirt. I think David's insane these days so maybe it might be better for somebody who has actively playing death metal for the past ten years rather than killing cops.

Blessed Are the Sick is the best Morbid Angel album.

DMU says it's Abominations of Desolation. The metal populace says it's Altars of Madness, but...

I bend my knee not
But for my own selfish desire

Formulas was half new material, half reused old material.
Gateways and Heretic, although trite, were still death metal.

I remain ambivalent, but certainly anything is better than Illud

is there really any redemption possible for them though? even if it's not as bad as the last one, I can't imagine anything new from them being actually good anymore.

That's more or less my point. If you expect something to the caliber of Altars or Blessed then you are just setting yourself up to be upset
