    I guess it depends on what death metal you're listening too. You could name some bands or something. Maybe then I can comment more about this.

    Bolt Thrower is a great band, but yeah their music is relatively simple.
    simple. If you listen to say for victory,etc.. it's obvious the band has style and are not just some dipshits who can't play to some extent. If you want to show them that a death metal band can play very very well bolt thrower is not a good start. This does not take away from the band or anything because that's not what they are about.

    Chords can be effective when done right(not like bands on the radio). Majority of the time I prefere patterns formed by single notes. I like nice thick sounding power chords and musical themes formed by well placed notes forming a pattern or riff. Someone does not need to always play chords to prove they are a good musician.

    Arpeggios are much better than chords, IMO.

    play them necrophagist. Just because "they don't use chords" (which isn't necessarily true...they may be arpeggiated) doesn't mean it's technical as hell.

    show them some really fast death metal tabs and ask them to play it

    and yeah. Jimmy Page is extremely overrated. his live soloing was terrible.

    Which, in turn, doesn't mean it's any good.

    these guys don't use chords therefore they suck. What a brilliant insight.

    Stupid men... when you can't agree on a topic, just change it to something much simpler like hair care or winter fashions.
