Metal has some crazy big words in it, and I have learned more than a few simply by being a metal fan.

This is a thread Idea I thought of, and didn't see anything about.
I want to expand my vocabulary to write some more sophisticated metal, and this seems like a good way to do it.
So, let's start off our vocabulary education.
Post some examples of words you've learned from metal, along with their definitions.


Probably the first one was "nadir" from Metallica's shortest straw, I was much younger and much more naive, and learned it.

nadir

n 1: an extreme state of adversity; the lowest point of anything [syn: low-water mark] 2: the point below the observer that is directly opposite the zenith on the imaginary sphere against which celestial bodies appear to be projected [ant: zenith]

ne·cro·sis (n-krss, n-)
n. pl. ne·cro·ses (-sz)

Death of cells or tissues through injury or disease, especially in a localized area of the body.

and lastly:

be·reft Audio pronunciation of "bereft" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (b-rft)
v.

A past tense and a past participle of bereave.


adj.

1.
1. Deprived of something: They are bereft of their dignity.
2. Lacking something needed or expected: ?Today's graduates seem keenly aware that the future is bereft of conventional expectations? (Bruce Weber).
2. Suffering the death of a loved one; bereaved: the bereft parents.


those are only a few of the more memorable ones.

This should be good.

No; "the act of estimating (something) as worthless"

And that something that is being estimated as worthless is a thesaurus. Since books are un metal here's an online thesaurus for all your feckless exigencies. http://thesaurus.reference.com/

Defenestration: n. The act of ejecting something through a window


to Boghead-
Fermentation is a specific type of decay in which alcohol is created (there's more science to it but I can't be bothered at 1:30 am).
Offal is poop.
Discharge is.... discharge.

Figure it out.

So uh like, your body gets you pissed and you profusely **** everywhere? Ah, well, perhaps not profusely or everywhere, but when I hear the word 'discharge' involved with feces I always think of a big log flying out of someones hole incredibly fast. And if that hit a fan I'm sure it'd make a mess.

Isn't...oh wait, thinking Visectomy.

Vivisection=Unction then?

This thread is not useless, because this is full of words that work well in metal.

For example, decapitate works, but Detruncation sounds meaner.

Soliloquy is when a character in a play is talking, but nobody else can hear him, like a monolouge, i think.
