Like other forms of English, Death Metal English is a tool kit.

There are some commonalities with early versions of Slam Poetry English as well. (BLANK)-tion words are just so plentiful!

"(Verb)ing the (noun)” as a great default song title reminds me of the time I wanted to start a band called The Dangling Participles.

IN A MIGHTY EARTHEN CROCK
A LORD WAS BOILED WITH HIS BEEF
HIS BLOATED EYES POPPED FROM HIS HEAD
...AND WERE STOLEN BY A THIEF!

Also, shouldn't there be umlauts? Or do The Kids not do that anymore?

So, my username would be something like "NEGATION OF EVAPORATED MUCOSAL EMANATIONS".

(death metal is the most meta thing in existence - it holds the seeds of its own parody)

I wanted to start a band called The Dangling Participles.

The Super Sonic Soul Pimps had a 2 part song.

Dangling Participle which was pretty much always followed by Action Verb.

Super Sonic Soul Pimps sounds like the name of a band that would have astronomical goatee-bleach expenses.

Great article, and it's so nice to see Invisible Oranges linked on the blue.

Just in time so that more people can listen to this bluegrass cover of At The Gates' Blinded by fear.

NWOSDM whatever blah blah.

Does this mean "Metafilter" in Normal English?

Man. Getting this took me a while.

It's a shame that Carcass's Heartwork album was released just a little too late for my SAT preparation - the lyrics (in description) did wonders for my vocabulary at the time.

I think "Talk In Death Metal English Day" would be even more fun than "Talk Like A Pirate Day".
