Years ago, a friend had me listen to some jazz music (I don't really know what song.). I find it relaxing, boring, horrible and ultimately lacking the power I seek in music.
Now I came across a brutal death metal band that claims to fuse jazz with brutal death metal. I found it to be completely absurd. I believe it is impossible for a very soft, melodic genre like jazz to go hand and hand with something as heavy, violent and brutal as brutal death metal.
I took a listen to a song and strangely I found it to be very good. Unfortunately, I cannot find the jazzy parts the band claims to have. I believe if it really has some jazz to it I would probably hate the song. The song is:
My questions are:
- Are there some jazzy elements on this song? If so how come it is still so brutal?
- Around 02:50, there is a section where only the bass and drums are playing. After a moment they are suddenly accompanied by very heavy guitars. I can't identify what style this is. Is this jazz? If so, how is it possible that they blend seamlessly with the heavy guitars?
Note: I do not know any music theory but this is bugging me so much. I hope someone could explain what I do not understand.
