Death Metal

Most musicians are drawn at some point to write about angst, melancholy and pain. And of course many are known for it — think of Tori Amos, The Cure, Billie Holiday, Robert Schumann. Most of those artists add some brightness for contrast, but not Death Metal bands. These musicians and their fans bask in darkness — pounding, unrelenting darkness.  Mortician frontman Will Rahmer and Matmos‘s Drew Daniel explain why. [Produced for PRI‘s “Studio 360“.]
