In the extreme metal world, that gnarly sub-genre, death metal, is cool again. This is largely due to young bands such as Black Dahlia Murder and Job for a Cowboy who slimed and gore-ified metalcore with death stylings. Some call it “death-core,” some call it “false.” BDM’s new, thrashier sound will likely feel rudimentary compared to tech-death, math-letes Obscura. With Augury and Hatesphere.
