We get it you're trying to be controversial and shocking. The only problem is though they're not at all. What they write about isn't anything I haven't seen in some cheesy horror movie before and that's all their lyrics are is cheesy horror. I've seen them live before and I didn't feel this whole "musical brutality" they're supposed to have all the time. I was paying attention to and trying to give them a chance but I felt nothing at all.
So what if their lyrics are all the same, how many rock/metal songs are about war or social injustice or death or partying or rock n roll, some people are fascinated by gore and the visceral side of nature, let them exploit it explore it and enjoy it, while you can go cry over a song about a war.
"Laying low in a blood filled trench" vs. "Getting blown by a blood sucking wench", its all good
