Death metal

Death metal is a subgenre of metal, most easily identifiable by its utilization of bass-heavy guitar distortion, harsh, often growled or grunted vocals, and particular brand of compositional density. Better known death metal bands include Morbid Angel, Autopsy, Suffocation, and Entombed, all of which had in their earliest years contributed codifying releases to the subgenre.

    I don't dance, i am somewhat socially awkward but i'd like to think that i am improving. I'm not cynical or try to be anyway but i got into death metal because well, society.. or my lack of understanding with that and i am learning but i still listen to death metal from time to time. More into old school melodeath now and melodeath in general but i like to listen to some straight up crazy stuff.

    I never understood why so many death metal fans I meet in real life are cynical, socially awkward bastards. To me, it's right up there with pop punk and metalcore as my sunny day music. It just makes me wanna dance around all silly.
