Bloodbath - So You Die

Band:  Bloodbath
Genre:  Death Metal
Language:  Once, Strong

As far as Metal goes, there's a really huge selection of bands that vary in how heavy they are vs how musically talented they sound.

Deathcore for example has huge breakdowns that will crush your soul with the build and drop if done properly, but a lot of people complain that their use of low guitar tunings is all that they really have going.

Then you have Death Metal bands like Cannibal Corpse who are at the top of a lot of people's "heaviest bands" list with their guitars tuned only a half step down from your standard tuning.

When it comes down to it you can only BS your way so far with low tunings to fake heavy music before you get shown up by a song that's just well executed.

Here though is a wonderful example of both low tunings and great execution.

I love how the guitars sound here, they have a really dirty tone going on that is so abrasive it's beautiful mixing with one of the most crushingly brutal vocalists ever to enter the game.

It's fast paced, it's heavy, and it's brutal.  All the things that people want from a Death Metal song.

Hey look, probably the longest post I've written in a while.
