go to a thesaurus and look up all of the similes for death, mutilation, blood and any other nasty words you can think of
then put them together with really sick imagery
and there you go
"you're gonna wish you'd never lived
when i rip out your ****ing throat
your death's a gift thats mine to give
and i'll eat you alive before you can die"
something like that

Dream Theater
and many others...

sir how about the riffs, elements, structure and attitude of a good death metal song? Like how to apply a certain riff to the structure of a song or when is the time you have to do some blastbeats or chugging guitars?

change time signatures every now and then
because it sounds really jarring.
listen to a lot of modern death metal, and youll find they swap between times a fair bit.
and using the Locrian mode sounds really dark
bands like Slayer, Evile use it a bit
as for the time to use these things?
its up to you.
because theres no real rules when it comes to writing music, so if it sounds right, it is
