There is a lot of nu-metal that is getting more and more popular but true Death Metal will never get to that point. They formed in 2006, comprised of members of several other bands in the area. Drum sounds and keyboard sounds and horns and whatever.

The signal-to-noise ratio measures how much of a pure signal (i.e. music) you hear through your speakers versus how much static (noise) can be heard. Obviously, you want more music than noise. You will typically pay more for amplifier that has a higher signal-to-noise ratio. This becomes more important if you listen to a lot of music that has quite spaces between passages. If you listen to a lot of death metal at high volume you might not even notice, whereas someone who listens to a lot of quiet classical music would notice right away.
If you’re just powering front speakers, or front and rear speakers, then you’ll probably only need a single amplifier. However, if you also have a subwoofer that you want power, then you should get a separate amplifier just for that, and possibly even a large capacitor.
Bloodsoaked formed in 2005, I looked for member for about 6 months and could not find anyone that wanted to do what I wanted so I decided to do Bloodsoaked as a solo project. I do just about everything in Bloodsoaked (guitar, bass, vocals). I help write the drum patterns but have Shane McFee do the actual programming.
In heavy metal you can see some of these characteristics in figures like James Hetfield, Cobain, etc. These are the most popular, but that certainly does not mean there are not others. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of other talented metal musicians waiting to be discovered.
