I've only ventured into Mudvayne with the songs Happy and Dig, but I'm not so sure that they would be called death metal right? But hey I may be wrong. Would some of their songs have some Death Metal elements in them? If so which ones?

I've seen them at Ozzfest before and one of their best songs is called "Death Blooms".

But.. I would put them in the same category as bands like Slipknot, Static-X and Prong.

They are more of a mix of grunge, alternative and industrial metal.

Just like most 80's bands with long hair are now considered hair metal...

To some listeners..any band that doesn't have clean vocals (cookie) is thought of as death metal.

If it walks like a... :cookie1:... and growls like a :cookie2:... and sounds like a :cookie9:... I think it's a :cookie5:... :wink:

Seriously though... another case where I had limited knowledge of a band (I only own "The End Of All Things To Come"... and only recall hearing Not Falling). When I posted the bands and their categories, nobody argued with me, so I went with what I had.

I agree...Steve don't take it personal.. how could anyone figure out all of the sub-genre's of metal, and why bother on this site.

The guy on the "A Headbangers Journey" DVD breaks it all down if anyone's really that interested.... :banana2:

I still have no clue what "emo", "goth", or "ska" really means?

Even some death metal bands evolve over the years and become more comercial sounding with their later releases.

Some of my favorite "Death Metal" or Cookie Monster bands are "Six Feet Under", "Lamb Of God", "Cannibal Corpse", "Entombed", "The Haunted", "In Flames", "Carcass", "Torture Killer", "Deathchain", "Legion Of The Damned", "The Crown", "Death", "Obituary","Enslaved" and "Sentenced".

Oh... no worries, dude. :B

I wasn't taking it as a knock. A few of the other members have pointed out other discrepancies in the categories that I was supposed to fix... but haven't had time with all the news out there recently. :oops:

Since I re-categorized everything a while back, I've started getting into Lordi, Opeth and Sepultura... Of the three, I'd probably only classify Opeth as death metal if I were rearranging the board tonight (which I'm not... :lol:).

Lordi is just straight metal... and Sepultura is very heavy... but nowhere near as cookie as I'd originally assumed. I actually shied away from them until recently because I thought of them as a cookie band.

Shame on me... :tsk:

Cookie vocals tend to annoy the crap out of me (particularly when it's coming from a 16 year-old with acne :P)... so death metal is just about the only brand of rock I generally don't like.

The Lost and Found disc is by far their best work imo. Have seen them live a few times and they have been good everytime!
