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
