    On page 21 of my Guide to Being a Tr00 Metalhead, it confirms: Becoming a death metal fan is not just about enjoying death metal, infact that's just a small aspect of it. It's also about considering all reasonably popular non-death bands to be shitty. This is not an option, but a requirement. There are exceptions to this rule: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motorhead, Alice in Chains, Faith No More, Black Sabbath or Dream Theater. You can still be tr00 and listen to these bands.

    I love FLDM. Morbid Angel, Malevolent Creation (up until the last 2 albums), Monstrosity, Hellwitch, Brutality, early Deicide, Atheist, etc.

    all good bands imo.

    Agreed. Listened to Atheist last night, as a matter of fact.

    Disincarnate Dreams of The Carrion Kind is fucking amazing.
    Atheist is a tad overrated.
    Cynic is usually called technical or progressive death metal, but wheres the death metal?

    Are you capable of making an argument without spouting off false "you're an elitist" jargon about my music taste? Slayer's solos are some of the best in metal and they are 1). a thrash band and 2). good BECAUSE they are sloppy. It works with their music just fine. The lyrics and image are important to metal as well.

    Absolutely fucking nonexistent, and I'm 100% sure no one who knows a goddamn thing about death metal thinks they are related to metal of death, tbh.

    Their demos were as death metal as they got, and are actually damn good. Sounds more thrash to me though.

    On Focus the Death Metal was still there, anything after that is just technical/prog-metal.

    cynic demos are definitely death metal theyre also by far the best thing they did since after that they succumbed to fusiony wank w/ that incredibly embarrassing robot voice and bass tone

    man for anyone still hawking this retarded "oh you just dislike that band because they're popular" shit. nobody over the age of 18 actually does this. granted a high proportion of metalheads are manchildren but i think it makes u look a lot less obnoxious to assume good faith and actually discuss the music on its merits rather than resorting to these stupid attacks.

    You just don't like those attacks because they're popular.
