* BodyHorror: Common in the band's early lyrics, and sometimes appears on later albums. "Living Monstrosity" is a good example:
--> "Born without eyes or hands\\
And half a brain\\
Be born addicted\\
To cocaine"

* {{Jerkass}}: Kam Lee. Between numerous tales of his egocentric, unprofessional, and incredibly unpleasant demeanor and his habit of doing nothing but slamming people in interviews in an incredibly crude, vulgar, and immature manner, Lee's name has been synonymous with "asshole" for a long time. His enmity with Chuck is legendary, but he was burning bridges with others well after he left Death. He has stated that he would have reconciled with Chuck given the chance, but his abrasive personality has still not wavered. Case in point: pretty much ''everything'' on his official Facebook is written like he's on the verge of going psychotic.

* HeteronormativeCrusader: Chuck was evidently one. In "Mutilation," he "celebrate[s] a faggot's death," and "The Philosopher" makes a jab at former bandmate Paul Masvidal's sexual orientation.

His enmity with Chuck is legendary, but he was burning bridges with others well after he left Death. However, he has openly stated that he would have reconciled with Chuck if he had the chance, and there's enough evidence from his current fans and those in the scene who know him that he isn't actually a bad person and the way he acts is out of his strong dislike of people and (possibly) experience with racism.

* {{Irony}}: Gene Hoglan was blown away by Sean Reinert's drumming on ''Human'' and remembered expressing relief that he would never be tasked with having to learn such difficult parts. That relief obviously didn't last.



** "The Philosopher" is really Chuck venting about former bandmate Paul Masvidal. This was a rumour for years that Paul denied but was proven to be true after events surrounding the formation of Cynic and Sean's departure from Cynic came to light. The most damning lyric of all? "So you preach about how I'm supposed to be, yet you don't you know your own sexuality." Yikes.

The message of the song in a nutshell is "you think you're enlightened, but you're really just a naive rich kid who thinks that he'll turn into John [=McLaughlin=] if he wishes hard enough".

* StartMyOwn: Kam Lee and other former members started the band Massacre after leaving, who continued in the same vein sound-wise.

* StartMyOwn: Kam Lee and other former members started joined the band Massacre after leaving, who continued and in fact is best-known as the same vein sound-wise.frontman and voice of that group. Today, Lee performs vocals for countless underground death metal bands, but prefers to stay deep under the radar to the point that very few people are aware he's still active.

* TakeThat: "Out of Touch" is directed at extreme metal bands who sacrificed musical quality for brutality and shock value and "Low Life" was almost certainly aimed at Kam Lee. "The Philosopher" is often rumored to be aimed at Paul Masvidal, but Paul himself has denied this and said there was no feud between him and Chuck.
