Making Fun of Death Metal

23 September 2011 8 Comments

By: Andrew

One of two things happened after our interview with Marty McCoy of Bobaflex.  Either a bunch of dudes decided to email us and pretend they were death metal-loving women or a bunch of death metal-loving women emailed us.  I don’t know if it’s more pathetic that a bunch of dudes would pretend to be women or if a bunch of women actually enjoy death metal.

My best guess as to what spawned this ferocity was Marty’s insinuation that females don’t listen to that type of music.  I believe this was said in regards to Lamb of God.  I’m sure Marty would be the first to admit that his comments were a broad generalization and that there are actually attractive women that listen to aggressive music.  They are the exception, though, and as far from the norm as it gets.

This article was prompted by an email I received containing two links to YouTube videos apparently representing woman singing Suffocation songs.  Enjoy the unintended comedy, and please, if my daughters are ever in their rooms doing this…I beg you…take a gun and shoot me twenty times in the neck.

    Daughters? If my sons are doing this, kill me too.

    THIS IS NOT MUSIC!

    I’m surprised the death metal purists aren’t slamming you for writing this article. I’ve booked a couple of death metal bands into my clubs over the years and personally can’t tolerate the music. I’ve heard some of the vocal warmups these guys do and it sounds like 100 people puking at once. It’s not music.

    Carla,

    It’s a collection of sounds, but it’s not music. And it’s not something I have to “get” either.

    All hope is not lost, because although I can’t stand Converge’s vocals, I really enjoy the musicianship.

    Don’t you champion the cause of Melissa Cross? Then how can you trash death metal vocals?

    I’m not trashing death metal vocals. I’m stating a fact, peppered with a little humor.
