What is Progressive Death Metal Music?
Progressive Death Metal Music is difficult to distinguish from “Technical death metal” as both refer to bands which are distinguishable by the sheer complexity in their music. They are a kind of fusion between your usual “death metal” (not that there’s anything “usual” or “normal” about that) and other elements like jazz, classical music or progressive rock. It’s a fine line between progressive death metal music and death metal music, and the line between progressive and technical death metal is even finer.
