A subgenre of grindcore that takes the concept of grindcore to further extremes. Grindcore and goregrind can sometimes be confused, but there are some distinct differences.

1) The lyrical content of the songs are usually very gore-related, awash with medical terms, and other stomach-churning bodily functions. While grindcore can talk about such subjects, grindcore tends to focus its lyrical content more on political issues.
For example, the goregrind band Last Days of Humanity's songs focus on these gore-related topics, with titles such as "In Advanced Haemorrhaging Conditions", "Covered With Feces as Decoration", and "Cataleptic Liver Explosion".

2) The most obvious difference between goregrind and grindcore is its use of pitch-shifted vocals, which creates an extremely low gurgle noise. This noise can be compared to a deep belch. Due to this, the lyrics are generally rendered incomprehensible.

3) The guitar riffs and overall sound have more of a "metal" feel" than grindcore, which has more of a hardcore punk dominated sound.

However, the two genres are similar in many ways. Both tend to have very short songs, and are very fast, chaotic, and the lyrics are typically difficult, if not impossible, to comprehend.
Goregrind music is not for mainstream music listeners, to say the least.

A subgenre of death metal, which combines the brutality and power of death metal and combines it with the odd time signatures, complex song structures, and other characteristics of progressive rock and progressive metal. The subgenre can also be synonymous with technical death metal. While some progressive death metal can be just as brutal and chaotic as normal death metal, bands like Opeth sometimes have softer, sometimes acoustic guitar work reminiscent of 1970's progressive rock bands such as Gentle Giant, Yes, and Genesis. Progressive death metal bands are also sometimes influenced by jazz and classical music.
Opeth is some kick-ass progressive death metal.

A subgenre of doom metal and drone metal, which is even more inaccessible and minimalistic than funeral doom. The sound is very slow, sometimes being as slow as 10 beats a minute, and very heavy, with deafening, downtuned guitars. There is extremely minimal drumming, and little singing. If there is singing, it is usually done in a shrieking manner, similar to that of black metal. Drone doom is meant to envelop the listener into a soundscape without drawing attention to itself, similar to ambient music. Examples of drone doom bands include Earth, Sunn O))), and Khanate.
Drone doom will envelop you in sound after a few seconds. It's a hell of a feeling.

A slang term for the vocal styles in virtually all death metal songs, which are low growls. They are named after the famous Sesame Street character of the same name. It's unknown when the term first came about, but the term can be both used by people who either like or dislike death metal.
"Hey, do you know what that guy's saying? It's terrible, I can't understand him at all!"
"Idk, they're cookie monster vocals. You're not really supposed to focus on the lyrics anyway. Who the fuck cares what he's saying? Enjoy the brutality of the music, dipshit!"

1. The inevitable end of a living being's life.

2. An American death metal band formed in 1983 by Chuck Schuldiner. They are considered one of the most influential death metal bands of all time, and it is rumored that the term "death metal" came from the band itself, as the band had created a style of metal that was so new and unique. Their debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, is considered the prototypical death metal album.
1. The emo kid bled to death after cutting his wrists. Good riddance.

2. My favorite death metal bands of all time include Death, Cryptopsy, Entombed, and Cannibal Corpse.

A pop punk band formed in 2001 in Chicago, Illinois. They consist of:
Patrick Stump: Lead Vocals, Guitar
Pete Wentz: Bass Guitar, BG Vocals
Joe Trohman: Guitar, BG Vocals
Andy Hurley: Drums

While currently very popular, they are one of the, if not the, most untalented and overrated bands in the world today. Fall Out Boy is an excellent example of just how bad radio-friendly rock has gotten over the years.
Guy: Hey, I'm going to the Dream Theater concert this Saturday. Wanna come along?
FOB fan: Nah, I got two tickets to the FALL OUT BOY CONCERT!!! OMG I CAN'T WAIT THEY ARE AMAZING AND SO HOT!!!!!!!!
Guy: Uh, yeah. Sure. That would be a no.
FOB fan: Oh, who is Dream Theater?
Guy: Never mind. They're too much for your little brain to handle.
