Metal_Treasure
I finished my research and I am ready to report.
Why Technical Death Metal?
1) because I like it
2) because I was really surprised when noticed that some songs got over 1 M views


Why is this surprising?

Because, if you think that death metal is heavy, you are right. If you think that progressive metal is complex, you are right again.

Now imagine a genre that is heavy and complex at the same time - sounds like the perfect recipe for inaccessible songs. Which they are.
But as you can see, several enthusiasts actually listened to them.

Videos that were published earlier had more chances to get views and to some extent I took into account the date they were published and my order isn't always by number of views. But you can vote for any song.

Generally speaking, there are 2 types of Technical Death Metal: Brutal Technical Death Metal and (standard) Technical Death Metal. Brutal Technical Death Metal is heavier.

If you want to add a song don't forget that not all songs by Technical Death Metal bands are Technical Death Metal songs - most of them are but not all.

The fact that a Brutal Death Metal song actually has more than 5 million views proves that the Metal genre is strong and is still growing in reputation and popularity. - CrimsonShark
