Added DiffLines:

* '''Texas''': Raw and dirty brutal death metal with a distinctively fuzzy guitar tone (often aided by extended-range guitars) that frequently overlaps with slam (and most likely codified it) and tends to feature extremely fast blasting portions with a trebly snare tone (the "slam snare" sound). Notable bands include Devourment, Viral Load, Desecrate the Faith, Devour the Unborn, and Kill Everything.

Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfLyricalHardness: Mostly a 9-10, but you certainly won't be seeing death metal go below level 8. Some of the more twisted lyrics can easily break into level 11, though (e.g. Cannibal Corpse and most slam bands that write misogynistic gorn).
