    Song tropes 
  • All Germans Are Nazis: Not helped by their sound, at all. Well, technically they ARE Khornates, but what average person will make the difference?
  • Careful with That Axe
  • Cover Version: They have done covers of KISS (I Love It Loud), AC/DC (Hail Ceasar), Genesis (I Can’t Dance), Rammstein (Weißes Fleisch), The Beatles (Eight Days a Week), Judas Priest (Heavy Duty/Defenders Of The Faith), Manowar (Kings of Metal), Rolling Stones (You Got Me Rocking), Six Feet Under (War Is Coming), Slayer (Angel of Death), and Alice Cooper (School's Out).
  • Death Metal
  • Gorn: They have a song titled Chainsaw Masturbation. Nuff' said.
  • Hard Rock: Have elements of this, especially in their later albums. They would later take these influences and fully flesh them out in their Traditional Heavy Metal side project band Blood God.
  • Harsh Vocals: Comes with being a band somewhere between "normal" Death Metal and Grindcore. Thomas also has a tendency to sound like a squealing pig during some songs, especially live performances.
  • Metal Scream: Most of their songs.
  • Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: A solid 9-10. Their "lowest" song was the cover of Eight Days a Week, which kept a relatively similar tune to the original song... except for the vocals. Hell, most of their covers are like that.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Many of their song's titles.
  • Running Gag: Try and find an album that doesn't have a song about violence, or Khorne of Warhammer40000. We. dare. you.
  • Three Chords and the Truth: For a death metal band, most their songs are very stripped down in nature, usually consisting of only a few simple riffs and at times juvenile lyrics. They fully embrace this, even poking fun at it in their song "3 Riff Hit", which features a (probably fake) audio clip of a fan asking, "How come Debauchery don't play no progressive death metal?", with Thomas responding with, "BECAUSE WE ARE DEBAUCHERY!".
  • The Unintelligible: Almost as bad as Anal Cunt.... if that's even possible.

    Music Video tropes 
  • Fanservice: The music video for Lords of Battle features a stripper dancing on a stripper pole throughout the video.
    • Fandisservice: And about three minutes in, to quote one YouTuber - "that awkward moment when your stripper gets her period"
  • Not Safe for Work: Holy. Shit. Female Toplessness, blood and usually some kind of bloody carnage will very likely be going on in their (few) music videos.
