Besides "xoxo" and "snälla, säg att det här är ett skämt", one of the most common comments we'll pick up next to a down-watered jpeg of the Going Postal artwork is the fact that we "incorporate old-school 'rock riffs' within our music." (Occasionally followed with YEAE or even more "xoxo".)
And yes, that is true. Deathember always strives to span as a timeless beast of wonder, stringing the old and new together in a superb vacuum beyond time or genre. Or that's the ambition - the reality being more like letting Elias blast over some lousy-ass 'twang' riff.
I think the pin mark of the 'rock' approach was the song "Scapegoat" on Flatlines. Staffan would drop in and prowl on about "modern metal meets classic rock, fuck yes" and would jam on the off-beat verse. I think my song "Crash and burn" also bears some 'rock' resemblance, although my ambition was less 'blend influences in an innovative way', than of just scram some good shit together so I don't get kicked.
