Death Metal

My musical tastes and my teenage son's are finally diverging. After many years of enjoying "classic" rock and roll, blues and jazz together, he has gotten into heavy metal, including bands that were around in my formative years. Unfortunately, I don't remember any of them. He now listens to speed metal, thrash metal and, most recently, death metal. Last evening, when he and I were at FYE together, he purchased the debut CD of the originally named Death, who I guess were pioneers of the death metal genre, not that I would know.

At least our tastes haven't completely diverged yet. On our way back home he popped in TSO's Lost Christmas Eve and we enjoyed some Wizards in Winter.

I hope this is just a phase. Heh.
