    That is wild! Good share. Quite the nostalgia trip.

    “Hardgore”. That’s a new one for me.

    They referred to Entombed’s Left Hand Path as “drab.”

    Unforgivable.

    My favourite bit is "The bands that play this music often come from England and have names like Obituary, Autopsy, Suffocation, Immolation, and Radiation Sickness" all of whom are American :facepalm:

    That is a very cool, death metal nostalgic trip.

    Back in 1992, The Florida Times Union, a newspaper here in Jacksonville, FL., ran a front, full page article on the rise of death metal in Tampa, FL. It was neat because they printed the cover of Death's Human album on the front. I'm sure a lot of people who saw/read the article were like, "what in the hell is this???" LOL. I remember the article staring out as, "Cannibal corpse, Death, Obituary. These are not the names of B horror movies but the actual names of bands down in Tampa, Florida." Really, really, regret not saving that newspaper article.

    '91 was the year I got into death metal, seems like a lifetime ago now. I still love the footage of Deicide playing on public access TV.

    I love watching old Youtube videos of Deicide playing live. Seeing Glen, Eric, and Brian up on stage wearing their spikes, especially the long spikes Brian had on is awesome. They're stage gear wasn't as extravagant as say, KISS and Gwar but it was cool looking when they did it.

    I think every few years a scan of that resurfaces.

    Man, I don't know if we've really had an era like that since for extreme music. Really brutal death took off shortly after, or at least in the 90's as well. I guess tech death can be said to have started in the 2000's, but I feel like even that started earlier even if the 2000's were the heyday for it. I miss the kind of raw sound that bands back then had. It's sad because people try to emulate it now pretty frequently and most of them come up short. Chthe'ilist is pretty damned good, and so is Horrendous.

    I can't be too upset because I feel like tried and true death metal is one of the only genres that's had pretty good consistency. The 90's we had Disincarnate and Suffocation, and the 2000's we had Necrophagist and Winds-era Decapitated. The 2010's is still recent enough I don't really need to say anything about. Still though, for as much as I like the modern shit I would certainly have loved to have caught some of these old bands live back in the day.

    “... with a throat-slashed style that outdoes even Stevie Nicks.”

    Very interesting time capsule but I’m glad I couldn’t read in 1991.

    Very cool and great year for death metal. So many greats. One of the best albums ever to be released that year was Suffocation’s Effigy of the Forgotten. Love Carcass’ Necroticism and Morbid Angel’s Blessed Are the Sick too.

    boring story:
    Yeah, this article brought back a memory of a one-off glossy metal magazine type publication a buddy volunteered to me in 1991. Yall know print used to be big back before internet ink took over and they'd release these special expose' type mags that came out like, once, for like 5 or 6 bucks about any topic. The one I had was some kind of extreme metal thing with all of these bands in them plus TON and TANKARD lol. I really hadn't heard any of the bands at all at the time. Tried to figure out what it was called but no luck. Might have been called something like New Hardcore Metal or something like that.
