Re: Is Death Metal...dead?
Oh dear, now we're discussing what falls into heavy metal and what doesn't... I say heavy metal is everything with distorted (if transistor generated) or overdriven (if tube generated) guitars, minus country. Good definition, isn't it? ;-)
For all those jazz lovers: Now where does jazz start, where does it end? My impression is that while nobody even bothers to think about THAT question some love to dedicate their time on classifying metal (interestingly, NOT being metal fans theirselves). Makes sense? No. But that's how some fellows are it seems.
