Whoever added this band. I hope you die of cancer. I am serious.

The keyboardist did the music for the Fred movie. No wonder they deserve to be on here.

Probably the band that ushered that sound/trend ALTERNATIVE METAL.
because you either had the rock of Guns 'n' Roses/Poison or thrashy noise of Metallica/Slayer...in 1988 FNM were the new alternative.

133 Belphegor Belphegor Belphegor is a blackened death metal band from Salzburg, Austria. They originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor.

Horrible, a disgrace to death metal. They're huge posers, and all their songs are the same. The uncleans are lazy and boring. Their lyrical content is disgusting and thoughtless. Doesn't sounds brutal it just sounds like garbage.
