i have been searching for some decent death metal bands to check out. i keep coming across job for a cowboy and i just dont think they are death metal... or any good at that. i need some proper metalheads to clear this up... are they deathcore or death metal? from what ive seen and heard they dont come anywhere near bands like morbid angel, but i have read their new album is really basic death metal watered down with breakdowns, so i dunno.

also, are there any new death metal bands that are actually death metal and not deathcore or grindcore that i should check out?

Considered Deathcore by Death Metal fans. Considered shit by deathcore fans.
Not accepted by anyone.

Doom EP is Deathcore, Genesis, I have no idea, i know if i say the wrong answer I'll get flamed, but you should check them out, you'll never know if you'll like them or not.

Job for a Cowboy is deathcore.

I would highly recommend Cynic if you're looking for good death metal.

And The Faceless!

Jfac= deathcore, although Genesis is more death metal. Still sucks though.

Want good grindcore? Check out Regurgitate. Check out Yogth Sothoth for gutteral, brutul death metal.

Cynic are great, but they're really debatebly even Death Metal.

yes, true, I was going to add that point in my original point, but I figured it might deter him from checking out a great band.

Whatever genre they are, they are fun to listen to.

There needs to be an ultimate "Is this band metal" thread because stuff like this pops up every day and it gets really annoying.

i'm not sure how to answer your question, but you should check out Death. their earlier stuff is more gory and simple, and there later work is more technical and examines aspects of humans and the world around us.

doom is deathcore and genesis verges on death metal

(both are totally rad)

They were deathcore, now they're just really ****ty death metal.

I highly recommend Morbid Angel, Sinister, Atheist, and Pestilence.
