Top 10 Reasons Why Death Metal is Awful

The Top Ten

1 It's nothing but growling and screaming

This list is nothing but blind evaluations and hypocritical opinions.

This list is Incorrect - MetalWorldOrder

There's some singing when you get into melodic and symphonic. - Metalhead1997

This list is great, totally appropriate, and in dire need of being spoken.

2 The lyrics are gross

Also, it's called Death Metal. DEATH Metal. Do you expect the lyrics to be about flowers, sunshines, and rainbows? - FireWasp2004

Not all DeatH Metal songs are like this - FireWasp2004

Brutal death metal, yes. Technical and symphonic? Philosophical. - Metalhead1997

5 It's the reason people think heavy metal is Satanic

Um, no, that's Black Metal (I like that subgenre though) - FireWasp2004

Um Black Metal is the reason why people think Metal is satanic which is false - MetalWorldOrder

6 It's annoying

Would you call Voice of the Soul by Death annoying it's a instrumental and is defiantly not annoying in fact it's a beautiful song that Death Metal haters should listen to - MetalWorldOrder

7 The songs mostly sound the same

I know why some people think it may sound the same. Its because of the riffs. Many death metal riffs just change the frets when playing. While playing a string with different frets won't make same sound. But a we usually notice the difference when different pitched music is playing. Different strings playing at the same time will make more unique sound. - zxm

Not a big fan of death metal. And I won't say its awful or it all sound same. But there's a reason why I like progressive metal more than death metal. I don't think I have to say anything about it. - zxm

Not true Death and Cannibal Corpse sound different - MetalWorldOrder

8 It gives heavy metal a bad name V 1 Comment
9 The band names are ridiculous
