I just listened to the "Best Brutal Death Metal Album of the Year", supposed to be "the inspiration of the year", by the band Origin ( here
I am growing very old you know, I did not know there was a "Brutal" movement in the "Death Metal" style (next year, there will be a "Violent Brutal Death Metal" movement, for sure).
I don't want to die stupid, so I gave it a shot.
EXTREME BPM (tempo 250), so-called EXTREME guitar skills (did you ever try to sweep at that tempo ???), EXTREME vocal grunt...
It is so quick that the drum player can not even play symbals (he has to hit the snare all the time...), the drum kit is then ridiculously small. So as the skills required for that...The videos are hilarious.
Too much treble and bass at the same moment ( necessarely as they play 1000 chords, 1000 kicks and 500 snares per minute), the sound is obviously EXTREMELY bad.
Bottomline: this kind of music is EXTREMELY boring, EXTREMELY poor and EXTREMELY not impressive. But anyway, there is an award for that too (obviously for the amounts of EXTREME qualities of it...), just like for Britney or Rihanna.
There is good in everything, even mediocrity, right ?
"We all are perfect", said my Guru Gaius Baltar. So say we all.
I definitely love this world.
