I dunno, but the best ever death metal band out of Denton was a couple of guys who had friends since grade school.

This thread is so specific and random. Awesome. I guess it goes along with all the "italian punk bands" threads.

Rather, no one would ever consider Slipknot true metal in any sense of the word. It's cute that you think you know true metal, though. ;)

Come out and smash'em up!

dimmu is considered as sell-outs in the black metal world, still i enjoy their music and they are norwegian. Slipknot is nu-metal, the word metal in the genre name is questionable, but i consider slipknot as metal music.best swedish death metal band imo arch enemy, even though i also enjoy in flames and amon amarth.

I'm not a big fan of death metal, but I've been on a Soilwork (which is Melodic Death Metal) show several months ago. They were damn good.

Last Friday-Saturday I've been on a local metal show with many death/black/folk metal bands (including Craddle Of Filth), but all of trve metalheads that were there didn't show any big support, like 90% of people were just standing and watching which was pretty funny to me. My decision - don't go to death metal shows because allmost all of the trve metalheads you'll see there are VERY SUCKY as crowd.
But it wasn't that bad, after all there were also Agnostic Front who made my Friday and Pain with few other bands that were good at Saturday.

EDIT: I've made a little research to figure out what are Death Metal songs about. From Wiki

Death metal's lyrical themes typically invoke Z-grade slasher and splatter movie violence,[15] but may also extend to contain themes of Satanism, criticism of religion, Occultism, mysticism, and/or social commentary.[16][17] Although violence may be explored in various other genres as well, death metal elaborates on the details of extreme acts, including mutilation, dissection, torture, rape and necrophilia. Sociologist Keith Kahn-Harris (author of Extreme Metal: Music and Culture on the Edge) commented that this may be attributed to a "fascination" with the human body that all people share to some degree, a "primal desire", and that although the genre often glamorizes violence and obscurities, there is equally as much fear and disgust amid the exploration.[18] Heavy metal author Gavin Baddeley also stated that there does seem to be a connection between "how acquainted one is with their own mortality" and "how much they crave images of death and violence" via the media.[19] Additionally, contributing artists to the genre often defend death metal as little more than an extreme form of art and entertainment, similar to horror films in the motion picture industry.[20] Needless to say, this has brought such musicians under fire from activists internationally, who claim that fact is often lost on a large number of adolescents, who are left with the glamorization of such violence without social context or awareness of why such imagery is stimulating.[1]

To me it looks like a teenagers-posers most brutal fantasies. Like "Beheaded" played a zillion times (but still Beheaded would be much more cute ;) ). Now I'm even more not interested in digging this genre.
