    For myself in the 80's Slayer was THE death metal band and in the 90's Type O Negative was. After that i don't have a clue. If somebody thinks there is a good Death Metal band now post it up i'll give it shot.

    Death was an American death metal band from Orlando, Florida, founded in 1983 by guitarist and vocalist Chuck Schuldiner. Death is considered to be among the most influential bands in heavy metal and a pioneering force in the extreme metal subgenre of death metal.

    Death metal isn't my favorite metal, but I like a little bit of all the different types of metal, really.

    A lot of it is unpleasant to listen to, but I think that sometimes that's the point.

    Anyway, I found this article you may (or not) be interested in reading:

    http://loudwire.com/heavy-metal-101-history-of-death-metal/

    Also, I find the history behind black metal kinda fascinating too. I don't care to listen to most of it, but I enjoy reading about it. Crazy church-burners in Norway, suicides, murders, pieces of skull made into jewelry and trinkets...that type of stuff

    Now you know Pantera was heavy metal, not death metal.

    I love Slayer, and I don't consider them death metal at all.

    This is death metal to me … or is this black metal?

    Yep. Satanic Norwegian Black Metal.

    They didn't actually burn any churches but they were pretty supportive of those who did.

    Death Metal changed my life! It made me realize that I could be a much better player if I tuned to A440, quit double-picking, slowed down and bent me a few long notes here and there. I never understood the incessant need of that genre's guitar players to go "lead rhythm player".

    To me, this be 1K times:

    For some strange reason, your mileage may vary.

    It depends. Are you referring to an elementary or ‘compoundary’ state?
