What Chuck was successful at doing, was to turn those stereotypes around and proclaim that his brand of music (he was named the Godfather of Death metal for a reason) dealt with issues of life, and though he did write gore lyrics, they were merely tongue in cheek, B level horror movie lyrics. How was he able to do this while escaping any criticism from critics? How was he able to be so successful with only a guitar and a couple of other band members? We must dig deep into his life to find out what kind of person Chuck really was, and how his success was firmly established into becoming the most influential guitar player and founder of the most successful death metal band of all
