well the first time I heard the "Swarm of the Formless" opening riff I thought it was super catchy! it stuck with me right away.same for the chorus of "Spawn of Possession". "EVIL EVIL!" haha. not trying to make you out to be wrong or anything, since it's all just about opinions. but I don't think there's anything wrong with catchy simple riffs in death metal.
