You really are clueless about the whole black metal thing, aren't you?
There's a MASSIVE amount of crossover between the two genres. Loads of black metal bands are 50% death metal, and vice versa...really, there's very little from either that is totally clear cut and separate. I don't know what you've heard that's put you off so much, but you've definitely missed a few memos somewhere along the line. Morbid Angel, for one, are one of the most frequently cited influences on black metal. It doesn't all sound like Darkthrone!
