Death metal

In no way am I saying every painting about Death is breathtaking, every movie about death is a classic etc. This is directed towards people who instantly hate Death Metal because they see songs about Death as stupid, grim and depressing. Just because a song has a theme that isn't about happiness, doesn't mean the song isn't enjoyable.

Death metal has some of the greatest lyricist and musical composition I've ever heard, especially bands like Death, Possessed, Atheist and Wintersun. Death metal lyrics [forthemostpart] are made to go to areas most other artists are afraid to touch, mostly death and dark subjects.

I don't hate it because it's about death, I dislike it because I feel like it doesn't exemplify the types of music that i personally enjoy to listen to. I much prefer to listen to music where I can pick out each instrument and admire the skills of the person playing it, understand the lyrics and explore their symbolism or poetic qualities, and be impressed by the talent of the vocals and of the group in general.

Not that I dislike Death metal but Im pretty sure most people have more issue with the style and sound of the music than the subject matter ( not counting people who say its satanic of course). There are actually many songs about death that are very well known and love i.e. Dont fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult

There could be good songs about death, but most of them are usually emo faggotry since it's written by these guys.

you are an idiot. people dont hate metal because its about death, people hate it because its loud and annoying to some people.
I like metal as much as the next guy but understand why people dont like it and dont compare it to other forms of art.

Seriously, if people posted more funny content, we wouldnt have this problem where people think they actually know ****

I love death metal, but you gotta admit its an acquired taste. Also opinion polls are ruled by hivemind fangirls who listen to pleb tier **** like JB, 1D or other pop cancers. I didn't start with death metal, but I was raised on Bruce Springsteen, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Eric Clapton. Bands that got me to appreciate instrumental artistry and lyrics which eased my ascent to metal, rather than the easy-to-fall for meaningless catchy jingle like what spews out of the radio.

As if there are no songs about death that aren't death metal.

"Black Sabbath" (1970)

What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one

Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan's sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher

Is it the end, my friend?
Satan's coming 'round the bend
people running 'cause they're scared
The people better go and beware


>it's about death
>it's not death metal
>it's a great song
>point proven

Yeah but nobody on this site thinks that with a burning passion.   
   
So this was kinda unnecessary.

There are tons of songs about death that most people like. t's just that they are not metal and they sound pleasing to them. Metal does not. It's simple as that.

Eric Clapton openly sings about the death of his 4-y-o son, that song is extremely depressing, yet people still like it.

I don't hate it because it's about death, I like some songs about death....but death metal sucks, it makes my head hurt, I can't understand the words, It all seems kind of the same to me, and the people scare me.

<- Look at that face. How can that scare you. Chuck Schuldiner's just so happy

I think if the songs were majestic and sublime like those poems, paintings, etc. then people would like them a lot more.

The lyrics may be great, but I like to listen to things pleasing to the ear, just like I prefer painting pleasing to the eye.
User avatar #178 - UberAndrew (03/28/2013) [-]
I guarantee you when those paintings and poetry were new they we just as controversial.

It's whatever is the most modern and popular medium that gets the most criticism. In 100 years when music is replaced by mental projections or whatever crazy new thing there is we'll look back at call all of our current media classics.

I don't like death metal because it's loud, obnoxious and my ears don't like it.

I don't know about you, but that's about all I care about when I listen to something that's audible. Much like how I don't like pictures of half open heads because my eyes say neigh.
