Halloween Playlist: Ten Goriest Death-Metal Tracks
Gruesome death metal courtesy of Impaled and nine others.
As you may well know, blood and guts are the new black. There are "Zombie Response Team" bumper stickers everywhere you look, people have shoddy zombiefied profile pictures on Facebook year round, and the undead have even eaten their way onto mainstream television with AMC's adaptation of the graphic novels The Walking Dead. Gore is in, and the music of bands like Carcass, Impaled, and Aborted are the perfect soundtrack for the current trend.
With that in mind, and being that we are in the state that defined death metal, County Grind offers you a blood-soaked playlist of tunes to break you out of your pre-Halloween Misfits routine. Here are ten of the most gruesome songs you'll ever hope to hear.
Think of this batch of aural torture porn to be the sonic soulmate to the Saw
films. It can be easy to miss out on the lyrical content of death
metal, with all the screaming and growling, so be sure to verify what's
being said so you too can sing along! Listen to them while you and your friends figure out who gets to be in the middle of your human centipede costume! Feel free to slip some of these
babies into your party playlist toward the end if your guests
continue to "haunt" your home too late into the night. We assure you it
will be far more effective than another spin through "The Monster Mash."
10. Cannibal Corpse -- "Frantic Disembowelment": The crowned kings of death metal provide you 2:41 worth of vomit-inducing growling and shredding. We couldn't think of a more difficult task than narrowing down the most disgusting Cannibal Corpse song.
