Death metal thread! Post your favs, recent finds, underrated gems, etc. Be welcoming to newcomers to the genre & don’t condescend. Melodeath is valid.
Optional discussion topic: Is death metal the most exciting genre in music today? Jeff Becerra of Possessed thinks so! https://youtu.be/-LEBZrV-594?t=660
He’s definitely biased, being one of the founding members of the first death metal band, but his soundbite on the topic is fairly compelling: “I think it’s equivalent to the golden age of jazz. It’s one of the, if not the most exciting genres in music today. To the trained ear, it’s going in so many different directions. There’s so many flourishes and creations, to tech death metal, to the gothic, the Viking, there’s just so many different kinds of death metal. There’s so much to pull from on resources. It’s really exciting.”
Post some exciting as fuck death metal regardless of if you agree. I’ll bump this thread with both favorites and 2019 favs.
