I’m planning to start a new band. I’ve decided the genre is going to be acapella death metal. Since the genre is quite new and rare I shall explain a bit. Death metal is typified by growls, snarls and loud heavy guitars. One death metal song that I remember by a Christian death metal band, (yes, they do exist), goes like this:
(In extreme intensity of voice)
Simple little ditty isn’t it? Observing the passage of death to life.
Acapella is a bit more complex. There you have interesting syllabic utterances like
with sudden squiggly note production like Whitney Houston or Robert Martin or even Thomas John. The last one is a Malayalee if you haven’t noticed!
Anyhow I plan to merge both the genres and hence acapella death metal. This is my vision of a performance.
5 Long haired vocalists with piercings all over dressed in silky white satin, come on stage moshing (head banging) and clicking their fingers.
The song (an own composition) goes something like this
DEATH! shoo-do wop
SHOO death do wop
yeah! (the squiggly note bit, a la Robert Martin or Thomas John, (the last one is a Malayalee by the way))
BLOOD AND GORE!
love you babe, you’re my sugar, bum-bum-bum
SWEAT AND TEARS
you’re my all in all dobedo
At this point 2 of the vocalists hug each other and start choking each other…
and so on…
