Death metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music. Descended originally from thrash, it often employs heavily distorted guitars, tremolo picking, deep growling vocals, blast beat drumming, minor keys or atonality, and complex song structures with multiple tempo changes.
Short, fast, loud, brutal, heavy, obnoxious. Not just crust, but also neo-crust, d-beat, and dark hardcore. Too punk for metal, too metal for punk. Completely D.I.Y. Total disgust with society combined with a drive to make it better. Radical politics, radical music.
