    Everyone is the same as they believe in their tastes and not everyone is going to agree with what is good music or nor. The thing is how you present this when in discussions that could stick you out like a sore thumb.

    Some of us slip but this user is incredibly consistant.

    Slayer can easily be categorised as at least a proto-death band, it just depends on where you draw the line.

    Hell Awaits is not so different from the early Death bands. Frankly, a lot of early Death and Black Metal could just as easily been classified as Thrash, and had Hell Awaits been their debut album, it may have been heralded as a landmark Death Metal album.

    I agree.

    Hell Awaits to me is not any different if at all from death metal albums like say possessed 'seven churches' or death 'scream blood gore'.

    I would almost say that Hell Awaits is closer to Death Metal than is Seven Churches, really.

    Maybe but Seven Churches vocals are closer to a growl than Slayer's are on Hell Awaits so IMO Seven Churches is more death metal than Hell Awaits.

    Hell Awaits in particular. The song structures and the riff stylings are very Death Metal oriented, especially for the era, and came to influence legions of Death Metal bands later on. Possessed as well, but Possessed seemed to be a more chaotic speed/thrash barrage, unlike any other at the time of course. It was among the pinnacles of extremity for its time, and rather unique. It is still rather unique today.

    I think both bands are more thrash than death actually. I just think Possessed is a little more death sounding than Slayer. That's just my opinion don't go on another rampage.

    i'd join the conversation but i have to bash consuming impulse:
    he is the most ignorant prick in all of metaldom and is so closeminded listening to nothing but thrash and old school death metal...if i were him i would dive headfirst into a pit of pitchforks and dead cannibal baby zombies

    The only thing you say that annoys me is your insistance that vocals are a major ingredient in classifying Metal into genres.

    vocals are an important ingredient but if you had death vocals with bongos and a banjo that wouldn't be death metal so instrumentals are even more important, though thrash instrumentals with black vocals would be classified as black metal by most people or techdeath instrumentals with power metal vocals would be considered more death metal so vocals and instruments both matter

    Instrumentation and lyrics dictates a genre more than vocals imo.

    It's definitely not the main ingredient. I think Children of Bodom (I know you probably hate them) are power metal because of the instruments even though they use harsh vocals reminiscent of black metal. There's definitely to much wankery to logically put COB under black metal. Possessed have the "evil" sounding riffs accompanied with growls to make them sound what death metal generally sounds like.

    Possessed evil sounding riffs(like the one in the exorcist) remind me of black metal more than death metal. Possessed does have a song called 'death metal' though so i'm wrong.

    How the fuck did Opeth sellout every album is the same. (good and a bad thing) Just the production got better as well as the musicianship.
