What killed 90s death metal? Some of what I talk about: - How I first got into thrash bands like Sepultura, The Accused and Forced Entry - The compilations that introduced me to death metal: Earache's "Grindcrusher" with Morbid Angel, Carcass, and Napalm death; Roadrunner's "At Death's Door" with Deicide, Malevolent Creation and Obituary and Relapse's "Corporate Death" with Mortician, Incantation, and Suffocation - The big death metal scenes: Tampa, Florida (Cynic, Atheist); Long Island, New York (Pyrexia, Internal Bleeding); and Scandinavia (Entombed, Dismember) - How Cannibal Corpse's appearance in the Jim Carey movie "Ace Ventura Pet Detective" and MTV's Beavis & Butthead helped death metal - Death metal's stagnation in the mid 90s, which opened the door for black metal bands like Emperor, Mayhem, Darkthrone and Cradle Of Filth to take the spotlight - The long term impact of death metal on rap, fashion and pop culture as a whole.
Dir en grey-Obscure (Uncensored) from the album VULGAR (2003)
Extremely graphic video like only the Japanese can do. With a heart ripped from the body and chewed into a bloody mess. Read the lyrics translation in english below.
Dir en grey - Obscure (meaning in english)
How many hangings tonight under the red moon How deep will it sink inside eating skin that doesn't match? The snake maes way through the sheets and goes inside the uterus. It can seem like a someivoshino a cherry blossom petal, that dances sadly. The stain is the moon that's fullfilled, and the vomiting at night begins. Don't you remember? Colour of faint...the night begins and people start to awe Colour of pomegranate...sting with the prick and disappear far away How many secret hangings of the premature baby tonight under the red moon Bloody Baby&Sacrifice Don't you remember? Colour of Golden yellow...want to be the spider that stings Colour of tears...remembering the memories Colour of faint...the night begins and people start to awe Colour of pomegranate...sting with the prick and disappear far away
