Do people really listen to death metal?

  1. Because it all sounds the same to me. What is the criteria for good death metal? All they are doing is screaming into a mic.
  2. Yes. People listen to death metal

    It has heavy riffs, virtuoso guitar and gutteral vocals

    Some people dig that!

  3. YEah man believe it or not other people have different taste in music than you. :p
  4. Sometimes, I prefer thrash though

  5. Yes. It's a type of music that appealed to me at a young age. Stuck with me since. And of it's just mindless screaming to you then i would just stop trying to understand it, cause I don't think you ever will.
  6. yep. I listen to all kinds of music, including some very heavy, (kyuss, sabbath, OM, tool, mad season) but I have never seen ANY musical value in death metal. just as pointless as pop-punk in my mind.
  7. Wow, some people in this thread are completely ignorant. Death metal was the first genre I started listening to, and it's a lot more than random screaming.

    That's only one. But seriously, listen to Death before you make a statement like that.

    The ones who started it all (arguably). Chuck was a genius :smoke: RIP
  9. The only death metal I've found so far that I like was Death. But yes, people like what they like even if it ain't others cup of green tea.

    see now this is good shit. but most of the death metal people post doesn't sound as cool and sludgy as this does.

    maybe it's just because I really despise the "thrash" sound that metallica & megadeth helped popularize.
  11. To each their own I guess :smoke:
  12. I cannot connect with it, really. But music comes in variety, some we like, some we don't.
  13. I can dig death metal without all the screaming. I love the instruments, but being yelled at blows my high. Be better off listening to my other half.
  14. Thrash is the shit \m/ but I dabble a tiny bit in more deathier stuff
  15. hi
    i listen music all the types, i don't listen death metal but i started listening.
  16. It actually takes a lot of talent to play all that crazy shit. It also takes a lot to learn how to scream to.
    I listen to some occasionally.

  18. To say there is no musical value in an entire genre of music is asinine.

  19. It all sounds like noise until you actually start listening to it
