    It means bland, pedestrian, unexciting, yawnworthy in the context presented here. But if you wanna call pure DM vanilla, go right ahead there champ. It seems like a bit of a fruity descriptor to me.

    :lol:

    Like i said it means ordinary, standard, regular etc .... look it up for yourself. And yes early Death and Morbid Angel is vanilla death metal just as early Megadeth, Testament, Exodus and such are vanilla thrash and so on. It's not that complicated.

    I'm not going to bother with this anymore. Goodnight y'all.

    Are Malignancy considered tech-death? Like, a brutal/tech-death mix? I like them. Which bands are considered tech-death?

    No such thing as a mix. If brutal death metal is technical, it's just technical brutal death metal. There's no such thing as brutalized tech death.

    To be fair, most brutal death metal bands with technical flair tend to be a shitton better than when not. For me, bdm adds a bit of organic flair to the music. It comes off more of a cyborg with rotting flesh instead of a full fledged robot playing death metal...or maybe I'm still drunk from last night.

    doesn't it all come down to musical preference, the reason i don't like traditional metal is because I'm tired of the cheesy riffs, it all sounds too "rocky" to me

    Hey at least traditional metal has riffs, unlike tech death.

    No it isn't you retard. You probably watch old lady skat porn on a Mac laptop inside of a independently owned coffee house in San Francisco thinking your all hip and cool while doing it. Fuck you.

    I'd still take Manilla Road over Obscura tbh. At least Manilla Road has a few moments of greatness, even if they're buried under tons of mediocrity.

    The vocals are fine, and much better than Obscura's vocals. Manilla Road's problem is that Mark Shelton can barely write a riff, let alone an entire song.

    Those vocals are complete shit. I agree. Hell Roadie is at least tolerable

    If im not mistaken, Dying Fetus' newer stuff is referred to both as BDM and TDM. Same can be said for Defeated Sanity.

    I name-dropped a few bands. Eugenics is definitely technical enough to be considered brutal TDM, but like krow said a lot of the BDM is technical .... well at least the good stuff, not the generic slam garbage.
