On Onset of Putrefaction, Muhammed uses this pedal note lick alot, for example on Fermented Offal Discharge, Intestinal Incubation and alot of times on Advanced Corpse Tumor. Does anyone know if this lick is inspired by a classical componist perhaps?
I need it for my English presentation about metal, and I want to show people that there are alot of classical influences in (death) metal.

Thanks in advance

What lick are you talking about?
Necrophagist have lots of classical influences.
The end of Only Ash Remains is from the Romeo and Juliet Suite.

Yep, that's almost directly taken from a classical piece that I can't remember the name or composer of.

A lot of neoclassical style solos have that.

Well, ofcourse, when you listen to for example Cannibal Corpse, there won't be any classical influences in there, but, I can assure you, there are alot of bands in death metal who draw influences from classical music, and Necrophagist does it alot

(Mind you, arpeggio's and sweep picking produce sounds that are used ALOT in classical music )

I'm pretty sure Suicmez wasn't trying to incorperate some part of a classical music piece into his solo, he was probably just thinking that "Hey this sounds pretty cool!" That particular lick (god how I hate that word...) just happens to sound very reminiscent to some classical pieces. I'd say go with the end of Only Ashes Remain if you're trying to prove a point.

..Think it's taken straight from Bach's Toccata & Fugue in D minor...

The piece at the end of Only Ash Remains is Dance of the Knights by Prokofiev, which, yes, featured in Romeo and Juliet..

Problem solved?

If you're in a metal band and haven't used Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, ur doing it wrong.
