Death metal was spawned in the US and Canada during the 80s with bands like Death, Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Winter, and Cannibal Corpse. Death metal is known for extreme speed and incredibly violent lyrics combining elements of heavy metal, thrash metal, and speed metal. The vocals are little more than inaudible growls usually exposing very dark subjects. Known for very abrupt tempo and count changes and blistering tempos.
Using muffled power chords or single string riffs the genre defined itself with blistering and repetitive rhythms and complex textures sometimes employing synthesizers. During the 1990s death metal diversified influencing many subgenres like grindcore which is an even more extreme version of death metal.
