Isn't death metal a much bigger, varied and older genre
than black metal though? So figuretively speaking is it not like comparing a mountain to a molehill?
No, they are the same age; Venom, Celtic Frost, Slayer and Bathory were an all an influence on both styles at the time. In the 80s it was all the same music.
And the point of 'necro' production was to sound like all the classic black and death demos and rehearsals that made the early years so exciting.
