How To Appreciate Death Metal

Further evidence of the power of wikis! This wikihow entry on appreciating death metal, a high-velocity, very dark, and super high-volume subgenre of heavy metal, incluldes such useful tidbits of advice as "Listen beyond the crunching guitars and harsh singing", "Watch a live death metal performance", and "Understand the context and subject matter".

Kinda applies to any genre of any medium that's new to you, huh? Urban fiction, hip-hop, Second Life, IM reference, mashups, anime & manga...the list goes on & on.
