A type of metal that for some reason is actually moderately popular among imbecilic teenagers. It is in fact the shitstain of music.
I have no friends because I only listen to death metal.

Satanic dark heavy as fuck metal that is often confused witg black metal. Death metal is full of heavy riff, blast beast, growls and is fucking awesome!

Possibly the worst genre of music. It consists of a asshole banging out "blast beats" on his drum set, a bassist that you can't even hear and a guitarist playing the crappiest riffs possible.

The vocals sound like some dude puking razors or something.

Death Metal fans are fucking faggots that will never get laid and they hate everybody that doesn't listen to death metal. They have some sort of strange hatred towards fans of hip hop and nu metal.

Death Metal fans say that anyone that listens to nu metal or metalcore would be scared to death if they heard a death metal song. No they would just laugh there ass off like everyone else does.
Steve - Listen to this Death Metal song isn't it so brutal? I bet if a nu-metal kid heard this he'd shit himself in fear.
Me: No he would just laugh at how bad this crap is.
Steve: You just don't understand real metal.
Me: No I just have good taste in music.

Complicated, intense, fast-paced instrumentals. Often accompanied, but not always, with references to death and satan, probably to give the band an excuse to use some really good sounding guitar riff they heard somewhere. Some people can't tell one death metal song from another, but they probably rarely ever listen to it.

An ominous premonition of impending doom lurks just beneath the surface and the diabolical lyrical content may contain
redundantly superfluous references to demons, Satan, Beelzebub, the Evil One, the Beast...
thus the guttural vocals and obsession with dismemberment.

A music genre, preferred by a category of people normally referred to as freaks whose only motive in life is to commit suicide.
Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson is the best example of how loser a person can get and then vent out his pent up loserities in a Death Metal song.

Lets all go back to the old days of ROCK... you have various forms like alternate, pop, light, gothic, satanic, and the best hard rock...bands like deep purple, led zeppelin and black sabbath are hard rock bands.... then in the 80's they changed to metal then came heavy metal, heavy metal bands are like judas priest, iron maiden, pantera and anthrax and so forth, still I class this as hard rock..but they call it heavy metal. You got lots of forms of metal these days and death metal stands alone, its not gothic or fantasy I call it where you run around naked and bite people like a vampire, thats gothic. so to be classed as death metal you do not sing about satan...thats more like satanic rock and its not death metal by far. To be a death metal band you must sing about death, your first clue is they call it DEATH metal.... bands like cannibal corpse has songs like "hammer smashed face" so if you get yer face smashed in by a hammer hmmm death can be the result, or like the song "fucked with a knife" hmmm chances are you will die if you decide to fuck yerself with a knife, so bands like cannibal corpse I would assume sings about the ways of DEATH so I think you can say they are DEATH metal 4sure. If you sing about anything else then how could it be Death Metal... Death and the ways of dying are brutal, cold and sadistic in this music, you don't sing about gramma dying from old age but if she got beat to death by a baseball bat then yeah whew thats death metal 4sure. So now you know the word DEATH has to be why they make songs, not satan or being a vampire or being political has to do with being thrilled by death. You must love the word DEATH and the music will make you want to hear more. It's vulgar and disturbing and sometimes insane and to me its great music. I think Death metal is way above all forms of metal and will kill to be the best form of metal, get it hehehe kill... okay remember the word DEATH before you play your gothic satanic political rock music and call it death metal.
Satan did not turn you into a vampire so you can smash your neighbors face in with a crowbar.... hey nobody mentioned the band "CROWBAR" they are a real death metal band.
