I hereby commit my body to the ground
sterilised and wrapped in plastic foil
being an object of this space and time
this body should remain concealed

for it holds every disease
ever exposed
it holds all pain and death
I could ever unleash

beneath deceiving, fragile skin
breathes the ever growing hate within

since the first glimpse of my existence
I have fed this greedy infection

an aimless search for potential persistence
found no escape from the fatal injection of life

for it holds every disease
ever exposed
it holds all pain and death
it could ever unleash

beneath deceiving, fragile skin
breathes the ever growing hate within

I am the father

I am the son
my refugee soul has escaped
this body depraved
of final wishes I ask none
but one
now that I am gone
lay thorns on my grave

What are the characteristics of death metal?

I know black and sludge/doom, but death metal seems to be very varied, or is it just me?

it depends what kind of death metal you're talking about. the traditional image is thrashy, punky, or blastbeat drums accompanied with grunted ('cookie monster') vocals and dissonant guitar lines. death was a pioneer of the genre, and that's supposedly where the name comes from. black metal and death metal both fork out from the first generation of heavy music after black sabbath/led zeppelin (lol)/etc like venom, bathory, celtic frost, among others. since then, there have been a lot of changes to the genre, and like you said, it's extremely varied. you've got tech death (death themselves were striving towards this idiom by their last, and best album), jazz-influenced death (atheist and cynic being the big names), brutal death (cannibal corpse, beneath the massacre), blackened death (behemoth), and tons of other permutations. death metal is probably the most varied of all the metal genres, except perhaps avantgarde metal, but that genre has to be looked at on a band-by-band basis, because there are no general tendencies to examine.

Bathory. I highly suggest Blood Fire Death and Hammerheart.

He is the founder of Viking black metal and one of Black Metal's finest acts in all of Scandinavia.

Satan Rides the Media

Really interesting documentary mainly about the Helvete scene focusing on Varg. One of the most clear documentaries on the subject!
