Defying Death

What's a death-metal mogul to do when the world becomes as macabre as his music?

And you can see their point: The predominant disposition of death metal--disdain--may be a necessary gag reflex for teenagers in the age of sensationalized tragedies, when the heroism of Flight 93 passenger Jeremy Glick knocking death in the teeth can be almost instantly reduced to the mendacity of a Stone Phillips interview with the widow. Death metal's satanic streak is little more than a mockery of the fake piety these kids can't stand.

We're all gonna die. Metalheads just want to scream on the way down.
