Depends on the band TBH, I know all of deaths lyrics cause chuck is easy to understand. The same with opeth and lots of other bands that use harsh vocals, however some bands like cryptopsy and some parts of behemoth etc etc I have no clue what hes sayin.

It's kinda like, you listen to it and try and figure out the lyrics and you have no clue, but when you look them up it suddenly becomes so obvious.
I can understand most of the lyrics off the new TTEOTD album though
Nile is just ridiculous
ohai little sig.

cant work em out most of the time and im never really that bothered as their are a lot like

"i want to kill her slowly with a chainsaw"

and **** lie that

Then again listening to Altars of Madness was never about the lyrics.

It was about the intense syncopation, and the greatest pitch variance on a death metal record.

Lord of All Fevers and Plague is a great example.

You'll get over death metal eventually, when you realise how stupid it is.
As a result of listing <><'s reports I was banned.

fail.


i barely know any cannibal corpse lyrics (they're my favorite death metal band), but i think it's pretty safe to assume what they are about (rape, murder, torture, cannibalism, etc.).

You can't be serious. Try listening to Cryptopsy.

Lol, Nile are one of the bands (besides Opeth and Death) that I can understand clearly.

Nile i've had a little problem with. There's this one part in Even The Hogs Must Die, where everytime I hear it, I always think they say "If put out, like a retard in the WAAATEERR"

Otherwise, I can understand them just fine. It's just bands like Rompeprop or Spermswamp that are impossible to understand. But, that's grindcore...

Either way, if I need to know, i'll look up the lyrics. I'm not going to bias how good a song is if I can't hear the lyrics.

EDIT: I put Hogs instead of Gods by accident...my bad.

I kept Hogs because I laughed when I read it.

Nile's a lot easier to understand on Ithyphallic.

Also, I always think if you can growl like them its easier to figure out the lyrics.

Dunno.
bree bree look how fucking metal i am

I think lyrics with those kind of vocals that I know is the whole of Anchorhead's "Shredisode IV" and I only know that because I found a video on youtube with all the lyrics in the bit of text. Pretty awesome still.

I learn more black metal lyrics than death metal, but I do know all the lyrics for Bind Torture Kill off the top of my head.

Insta-fail. So many death metal bands don't incorporate gruesome lyrics.

Most of my favorite bands are tech/prog metal so I know a lot of them, but its hard to know ALL of the lyrics to ALL of their songs (just cause memorizing that seems kinda pointless)

I know a good few of my favourite DM bands lyrics... but as regards Old Crytopsy and the likes, I just enjoy reading the lyrics and listening to the music, I really cant make out where he says what 90% of the time. Awesome though.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

I know a couple off by heart but i know just the vocal patterns on plenty. Growling along without using real words is much more fun anyways.

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

#21
Not when they don't sing in english, or post their lyrics n=anywhere (but that's usually the black metallers pulling that stuff)
#22
I can hear what they sing in most death metal-songs but i dont remember the lyrics, i have a really bad memory for that. I often only know the refrain or if they sing something catchy in the song. Im really bad at remembering song titles too.
#24
I have done vocals for Dechristianize/many many Cannibal Corpse songs and I can play a quite a few Behemoth songs while doing vocals... so yes :P:

Unbelievable amount of truth their, the phrase " Just screaming cool sounding ****" always come to mind when i think of Tardy's vocals.

#26
Nope.

I very, very, very rarely look up lyrics, much less learn them. For death metal, my big thing is I can't sing a long. I can't growl, I can't scream, and I think it's kinda strange to just talk along to them.

So, unless I have some sort of interest, I won't take the time.

So true!

I know some lyrics, but some get really difficult to understand, point and case Cryptopsy. Lord Wormish for the win!

Some bands i understand, but those are only my favorites.
The more i get into a band the more i understand.

Example, i can understand Cannibal Corpse with ease

corpsegrinder's easy to understand, but i can't pick out most of what barnes says


I actually think Barnes is easier than Corpsegrinder.

There are alot of bands relatively easy to comprehend.
#31
Barnes vocals are a lot easier to pull off than corpsegrinder's, but to understand..... eeer, to me, Barnes sounds more ridiculous than Tardy and Worm combined.

But anyways, Spawn of Possession lyrics are f**king badass. "Of all the secrets, I know only one: My shadow's buried, but my soul is not". *commence headbanging
#32
but tardy really is more ridiculous
they never finished the lyrics for the Slowly We Rot album, so in a bunch of places its just him shouting nonsense

I hate you.
But Nile's vocals are fairly clean, it's just that they're very fast and that's why I can't really understand them.
I can make out Corpsegrinder's lyrics well, but Barnes I could not.
I cannot understand Cryptopsy at all, but None So Vile is so badass.
I like to listen to death metal for sheer brutality or technicality, not so much for the lyrics.

The only vocal bits you need to learn in metal are the chants and sing a longs in viking/pagan bands' lyrics.
