After months of laziness I've finally gotten around to fixing up my list of my favorite death metal albums! It's about finalized now, I might change some stuff later in the list but for now the beginning is all set.

A couple things about this list:

It's gonna be the same format as my top thrash metal albums list I made a few months back. The only difference is that this list has DOUBLE the albums that my thrash list had! There are 62 as of now, more may be added as I usually do forget albums!

Only 2 bands repeat on here. I love me some death metal and there just had to be some bands that put out 2 albums I really, REALLY love. Other than that, just one album per band on here.

I love all these albums. Just because an album is in the 50's ranking doesn't mean I think of it as "Eh, this album is okay, just enough to make my list." That's not how it works! An album is in the 50's because there happens to be albums ahead of it that I happen to like more! If I thought something was just "okay" it wouldn't have made this list.

ALSO:
This list covers ALL kinds of death metal, be it brutal, tech, doom, etc.

I believe that is about it. I'm gonna go through the list once more and post the first one soon!

One of them better be Death! Otherwise you're doing it wrong. ;)

Don't worry about it, and I already did something wrong because now I got 71 albums on here!

I think we're set, gonna post #71 right now.

Devourment - Butcher the Weak

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/61/Butcher_the_Weak.jpg/220px-Butcher_the_Weak.jpg

Genre: Slam/Brutal Death Metal

mmmm, slam. This is top notch for being what it is. Tons of killer riffs, insane drumming, and actually well placed bass drops! My favorite thing about this album, however, are the breakdowns/slams. DAMN they pull them ridiculously on here! Babykiller is the perfect example for this. I'm sure most people have heard this band/album before, but if you like slam or just breakdowns and brutal death metal in general, check this out!

Highlights:
Butcher the Weak (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIQzgAg8OzI)

Revocation - Existence is Futile

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_q1OyznKCtwY/SrrYBqWNvoI/AAAAAAAAAnE/RHZrXs6wKLo/s320/Cover.jpg

Genre: Technical Death/Thrash Metal

Revocation have always been interesting. They mix technicality with death and thrash metal, but with more of an emphasis on death metal. Every person on here is extremely talented at what they do and this album shows it. The guitars help make this album awesome. The leads, solos, everything about them is remarkable. I know most of everyone on this site has listened to this band before, so you'd know what to expect. But for those who haven't, check it out, it's crazy.

Highlights:
Pestilence Reigns (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUV0IrfMC0w)
Re-AniManiac (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PP_H8yRyapM)
Dismantle the Dictator (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C91g7iaElFU)

Obscura - Cosmogenesis

http://www.metalunderground.com/images/covers/Obscura_-_Cosmogenesis_cover.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

One of the finer tech death releases on there. Again, I'm sure a lot of you on here have heard this before so you know what to expect. If you haven't, prepare from incredibly technical work from all the instruments and a hell of a listen. This would be a lot higher but some songs start to recycle riffs later on in the album. Aside from that it's a great album.

Highlights:
Incarnated (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzjKMYsiGyk)
Universe Momentum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoO23fKbqjE)

Nunslaughter - Hex

http://shop-hellsheadbangers.com/images/releases/hex.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Straight up in your face death metal. The songs are short but to the point and don't let down the entire album. The lyrics are pretty cheesy and funny yet they fit the theme of the band. Any fan of death metal should check this out, regardless.

I actually found this on vinyl in perfect condition at a Half-Priced Books by my friend's house... and they didn't have the actual vinyl. :bouville:

Highlights:
This is Fucking War (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jtkAOXWBGE)
I Hate Christians (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch3BcB1eEes)
Smell the Burning Churches (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYFSOOyYHCw)

dISEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence Into the Peripheral

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_YMJMzCMOQPo/Suph7lTs6GI/AAAAAAAAAhg/prWRqb-8lJ0/s320/alien.jpg

Genre: Death/Doom, Funeral Doom Metal

The one funeral doom metal on here that has enough death metal elements to be considered a death metal album. Mixing up the slow passages and atmospheres of funeral doom with the vocals, intense riffs and drumming from death metal, you get dISEMBOWELMENT. This album is crazy as hell and very long, but it is well worth a listen. This was done in 1993... amazing. There was nothing like it at it's time.

Highlights:
The Tree of Life and Death (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr4jNutSDUE)
Your Prophetic Throne of Ivory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oITFnx2TUZ0)
The Spirits of the Tall Hills (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySo5EoQL9_c)

Bloodbath - Nightmares Made Flesh

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/22/Bloodbath_-_Nightmares_Made_Flesh.jpg/220px-Bloodbath_-_Nightmares_Made_Flesh.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Arguably Bloodbath's best album. Everything about this album is intense. Peter Tägtgren does a spectacular job with the vocals on here, ranging from higher pitched screams to very low growls. He also makes it so that you can understand what he is saying at the same time. To me, he is the highlight of the album. Followed up would be the drums, which help make the album as intense as it is. While not grouped in with the legendary Swedish death metal bands, there's still no reason to not check out Bloodbath, especially this album.

Highlights:
Soul Evisceration (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gy_BUOFfhQ)
Bastard Son of God (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RW8AmRxsxj0)
Year of the Cadaver Race (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLZnP1rUn3s)

I like Mikael's growls in Opeth much more than his growls in Bloodbath; when it comes to Bloodbath, Tägtgren completely destroys Akerfeldt.

I just don't like that Tägtgren's growl just has this tone to it that kinda bothers me. Idk

I think his voice fits in Hypocrisy and Lock Up, but I've just never cared for him in Bloodbath

Disma - Towards the Megalith

http://www.metalunderground.com/images/covers/Disma_-_Towards_the_Megalith_cover.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

One of the two 2011 albums on here, and the one newer band that can replicate the classic "Incantation" sound perfectly, because the guy who did vocals on the first couple Incantation albums is doing vocals on this as well! This is as close to 90's brutal/tech death metal as you'll get. It's slow and mid paced for the most part, yet the riffs are crushing and you'll have a fun time headbanging along to the songs. I can't wait to see them live.

Highlights:
Chasm of Oceanus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCYmAwgsFsU)
Purulent Quest (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qb38CDQDQOo)
Lost in the Burial Fog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyKvEfD7t_w)

I think the best way to put it is that the Disma album is the best Incantation album since the last Funebrarum album.

Today at the Corpse show I found a dude wearing a Disma shirt with his wife. When I told him how much I love Disma they freaked out that someone my age new them and immediately got my name because they're good friends with the band. Just thought I'd add my cool story :fist:

Hell yes :rocker:

I think I prefer the other two albums slightly more because I prefer Mikael's vocals with the band, but I don't disapprove of Peter at all. There's honestly nobody I would rather have take over for Mikael, even though their vocal styles are extremely different.

When it comes to Bloodbath, I definitely prefer Mikael's vocals, but I also love Peter's vocals with Hypocrisy (and on that album). So basically, I agree with you. ;)

Cannabis Corpse - Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Qy61pVGL4bE/ThytdUBEEJI/AAAAAAAADGs/DFjS4sPJanw/s320/cc.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

And here is the other 2011 album on here! I personally think this is Cannabis Corpse's best work so far. There is absolutely no filler in this album. The riffs are some of the most tasteful and defined riffs I've ever heard, as well. This was higher up in my best of 2011 list for a reason. It sucks that when I saw them they only played like 2 or 3 songs from this album. Oh well, regardless it's always a fun time to listen to.

Highlights:
Chapel of Bowls (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcyfSiJDspM)
Dead By Bong (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twE9olmy-_U)
Gateways to Inhalation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD-Uo28KKDA)

Augury - Fragmentary Evidence

http://hearwaxmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Augury-Fragmentary-Evidence-300x300.jpg

Genre: Progressive/Technical Death Metal

This is an awesome album. Every instrument on here is just... wow. I remember seeing them live 3 years ago and they just blew me away. Their bassist definitely stood out the most, that guy is a monster. Even though the bassist is a monster, don't let that distract you from the other instruments! There won't be a single moment when you're bored listening to this album. If you want extreme technicality and a catchy feel while it's at it, do not hesitate to listen to this album.

Oh, and the album art is one of my favorite album arts ever.

Highlights:
Simian Cattle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DPW9ED1WBs)
Sovereigns Unknown (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEZQM1dtPSY)
Brimstone Landscapes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I45eeUvo0N4)

I'd probably have Obscura and Augury a lot higher if I made a death metal list, but that's probably because i'm a huge Progressive/Technical Death Metal fan.

Still an awesome list so far. Disma was an awesome new discovery for me :rocker:

Will definitely keep an eye on this!

The Black Dahlia Murder - Nocturnal

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/f/f1/L_ec89e4d18ecfd01cd766ff9a438fb0df.jpg/220px-L_ec89e4d18ecfd01cd766ff9a438fb0df.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

For those who don't know, The Black Dahlia Murder are a mix of some of the finest death metal genres around. They incorporate melody, technicality, and something that they emphasized more on Nocturnal, brutality. This is probably second best, if not the best album they have put out. The new album Ritual is a VERY close contender. So close I don't even know which one I like more. But anyway, this album is a mix of all sorts of death metal without making a mess. Notable mention to the introduction of drummer Shannon Lucas in the band, he makes this album ridiculous with his crazy drumming.

Highlights:
What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWjg-_7xtpo)
I Worship Only What You Bleed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLlSiFYGE88) - My favorite BDM song ever. The influence from Suffocation is huge on here!

The Faceless - Planetary Duality

http://img.noiset.com/images/album/the-faceless-1-planetary-duality-cd-48595.jpeg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

One of the first death metal albums I ever heard. I used to be the biggest fanboy for this band like 3 years ago. It was also sick seeing this album being played in it's entirety 3 years ago as well! Since then I've discovered a ton of other death metal bands (as you can see) and I kinda distanced my way apart from this album... but listening to it again is very nostalgic. Michael Keene shreds on this album, his solos are very clean and the riffs are heavy. The drums are also intense on here, Lyle Cooper (I think that's his name?) is a VERY talented drummer, especially for tech death. I personally think it's a step up from Akeldama, both as an album and genre change. Even though this album is just short of half an hour, it's still worth a listen for some crazy paranormal-ridden madness.

Highlights:
Prison Born (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KHf-k8wyjg)
Xenochrist (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMWVIYjAx_I)
Legion of the Serpent (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jvJnWOfReU)

Thanks everyone for the compliments! There are actually some stuff I'm forgetting but at this point it's too late. Some bands I forgot were Cardiac Arrest, Anata, Cianide, and Accidental Suicide. I didn't include bands like Between the Buried and Me since they're straight up prog metal to me, and Ghoul because they have a more crossover influence rather than death metal.

Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/c9/Amon_amarth_oden.jpg/220px-Amon_amarth_oden.jpg

Genre: Melodic Death Metal

I'm not a big fan of melodeath at all, but Amon Amarth happens to be one of the few bands in the genre that I do like. All their releases are great and have consistency, but when they released this one... man. They definitely outdid themselves with this album because it is amazing. The riffs and melodies are way more defined and all the songs are incredibly catchy in their own way. Every song is either fast, brutal, or melodic mid paced. Whichever it may be, they are all awesome in their own way. This album also has my favorite lyrics they've ever written. Lots of violence! :rocker: This is definitely the album to start with to get into Amon Amarth.

Highlights:
Valhall Awaits Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHBe7IDrqpI)

Demilich - Nespithe

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2731/4246573832_6fc9200613.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

Demilich... another very interesting band. You never know what to expect from these guys. Having released one of the most technical and bizarre albums in the history of death metal, they have taken metal in general to new extremes. You cannot predict anything that is going to happen in this album. The songs usually start out with an awesome riff, and rather than continuing the riff, they change it to another riff! It's hard to explain but you have to listen for yourself. The one thing that could draw people away from this album are the vocals (mainly sounds like burping) but for me it wasn't a problem. 90's tech death fans, this album is for you!

Highlights:
When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxizB02d0gE)

http://www.spirit-of-metal.com/les%20goupes/A/At%20The%20Gates/Slaughter%20of%20the%20Soul/Slaughter%20of%20the%20Soul.jpg

Genre: Melodic Death Metal

Another one of the very few melodic death metal albums on this list. I love this album not just because it's melodeath done right (by right I mean not boring) but also because it is actually DEATH metal. Most Gothenburg melodeath bands keep forgetting the "death" in death metal. Not At The Gates. Although it's well known, this album was very innovative and inspired many bands throughout the years, some good and some bad. This album is a landmark in the history of metal as a whole.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/29/Behemoth_-_Evangelion.jpg/220px-Behemoth_-_Evangelion.jpg

There are a lot of later Behemoth releases that are awesome in their own way, but their last album definitely sticks out to me the most. Everything is a lot more polished on this album, especially the production. This album is very violent, Nergal sounds especially pissed off for whatever reason on here. But yeah, my favorite Behemoth release as of now. Can't wait to see them again!

I prefer Behemoth in either small doses or live. And I'm not a big fan of slam. I mean I do enjoy Devourment, Short Bus Pile Up and Abnormity... but that's about it. But there is an album coming up later that you may or may have not heard but will enjoy regardless. It's not really slam but slam fans do enjoy it. I'll make a note of it when it's next.

Rottrevore - Iniquitous

http://xtreemmusic.org/label/bands/rottrevore/gfx/rottrevore_iniquitous_300px.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Dark. Raw. Crushing. These are the perfect words to describe this classic old school death metal gem. Everything about this album is just low and heavy. The riffs, the vocals, the bass, the drumming, everything is just dark and heavy. This is something you should definitely check out if you're into 90s death metal. My friend went to New York to see these guys last summer... lucky motherfucker. They do have some new material out as well. I haven't listened to it yet, but yeah, good to know these guys are still out there killing it!

Goatwhore - A Haunting Curse

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61XUitlvZDL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Genre: Black/Death Metal

At first I was gonna have Carving Out The Eyes Of God on here as the Goatwhore album of the list, but after seeing them live again back in October, my opinion has changed a lot. The songs they played from this album were fucking AWESOME. This album as a whole is sick as hell! A great mix of death metal with some black metal, creating for an intense and heavy album. The drumming and vocals (both from the frontman and guitarist) are my favorite parts of the album.

Highlights:
Bloodletting Upon The Cloven Hoof (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqWJmUulHkE)
Alchemy of the Black Sun Cult (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-cHI2szbQU)
In The Narrow Confines of Defilement (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2WfD5hzJfE)

Behemoth - Evangelion

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/29/Behemoth_-_Evangelion.jpg/220px-Behemoth_-_Evangelion.jpg

Genre: Black/Death Metal

There are a lot of later Behemoth releases that are awesome in their own way, but their last album definitely sticks out to me the most. Everything is a lot more polished on this album, especially the production. This album is very violent, Nergal sounds especially pissed off for whatever reason on here. But yeah, my favorite Behemoth release as of now. Can't wait to see them again!

Highlights:
Daimonos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d60IFKmohuo)
He Who Brings Pestilence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kh3mdcXVf2o)
Defiling Morality Ov Black God (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MbVVswO4do)

I appreciate production like this as well. Seems many death metal fans like a more raw sound. I don't neccessarily dislike a rawer sound, but I really like clean production, like this album has.

Malevolent Creation - Retribution

http://transientwriting.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/retri.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Man, this album is fast and heavy. It could be considered death/thrash but it has more elements of death metal than thrash. Either way this album is crazy. It's hard to pick between this album and their debut, The Ten Commandments but I've always found myself listening to this album a lot more. I'd recommend people both albums to listen to, but I've personally liked this one a lot more. It never lets down being heavy and it is all around insane.

Highlights:
Systematic Execution (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEjgBE1j5mM)
The Coldest Survive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHFH8CYUO1k)

Convulse - World Without God

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-x5l5ynS9pw/SymhTppy0zI/AAAAAAAAAYs/tmelUBrqKwE/s400/convulse_world.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Another 90s Finnish death metal classic. This album is a lot more upbeat in some sections, while having old school slower parts as well. While being around at the same time, this album could easily fit in with the classic 90s Swedish death metal albums back then. This album defines European death metal. It's heavy, the riffs are crushing, the album artwork is awesome, and the album just speeds by and kicks you in the face. Definitely recommended for any old school death metal fan, it's a hell of an underrated album.

Highlights:
World Without God (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEqE9MgVzJg)
Incantation of Restoration (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0gF0b6pRvg)

Repugnant - Epitome of Darkness

http://www.spirit-of-metal.com/les%20goupes/R/Repugnant/Epitome%20of%20Darkness/Epitome%20of%20Darkness.jpg

Genre: Death/Thrash Metal

Incredible release from an interesting band. The frontman has been the only consistent member since the band formed in 1998 or so. He then got a lineup to record this monster of an album and then disbanded the band. Luckily they have reunited and started playing shows again (they fucking kill live, by the way). Anyway, this album draws influences from all sorts of death metal. Proto death metal, 90s American death metal, and of course, Swedish death metal. You wouldn't be able to tell right away that this band is in fact, from Sweden! The killer production could be a giveaway, though. Indeed, this is one of the greater death metal albums to come out in somewhat recent times.

And would you believe that the frontman of this band is also the singer for Ghost? Yep.

Highlights:
Premature Burial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7jVVBn9s6w)
Draped In Cerecloth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITQmRbSq2jc) - One of my favorite tracks although it's not the album version. Still worth listening to!

Fleshgod Apocalypse - Oracles

http://www.spirit-of-metal.com/les%20goupes/F/Fleshgod%20Apocalypse/Oracles/Oracles.jpg

Genre: Brutal/Technical Death Metal

There have been a lot of tech death releases in the past few years, but there has been absolutely nothing like this album. Classical inspired tech death? Interesting at first and then you take a listen and it blows you away. This album is fucking crazy. Blazing fast riffs and drums make this album one hell of a monster. There are a few classical violins thrown in some songs, somehow they fit but I don't know how to describe them. Either way, this album surely has been heard by a lot of people in the past year alone, but it seems that it has been overlooked recently since Agony came out. I personally think Oracles is a much better album.

Macabre - Dahmer

http://www.spirit-of-metal.com/les%20goupes/M/Macabre/Dahmer/Dahmer.jpg

Genre: Death Metal/Thrash/Grindcore

It's hard to classify Macabre into one genre (well their first album was obviously grindcore), but death metal definitely sticks out as the biggest aspect of their music. All their lyrics focus on serial killers and murders throughout history, and they outdid themselves with a concept album about one of the most infamous killers ever, Jeffrey Dahmer. A sick and twisted story is interpreted the same way as music, with some humor thrown in. The songs are all very catchy, heavy, and all around well structured. It's hard to do that and have a concept going at the same time, but Macabre pulls it off very well. I highly recommend this album to any fans of metal in general.

Highlights:
Hitchiker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSckeX6FZbI)

Rottrevore - Iniquitous

http://xtreemmusic.org/label/bands/rottrevore/gfx/rottrevore_iniquitous_300px.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Dark. Raw. Crushing. These are the perfect words to describe this classic old school death metal gem. Everything about this album is just low and heavy. The riffs, the vocals, the bass, the drumming, everything is just dark and heavy. This is something you should definitely check out if you're into 90s death metal. My friend went to New York to see these guys last summer... lucky motherfucker. They do have some new material out as well. I haven't listened to it yet, but yeah, good to know these guys are still out there killing it!

Gorguts - The Erosion of Sanity

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c8/The_Erosion_of_Sanity.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

This was another band that was hard to choose from. Gorguts has 4 full lengths out, and they are all good in their own way, but I personally like The Erosion of Sanity the most. On this album, Gorguts combines the raw intensity of old school death metal with extreme technicality to create an obscure death metal sound of their own. The riffs are are very defined and even more technical. Again, any fans of tech death should check out not only this underrated album, but this band in general.

Oh, and if you want a real mind fuck, listen to the album Obscura.

Highlights:
Condemned to Obscurity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYTpR3VhzUk)

Grave - Into the Grave

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8b/IntoTheGraveAlbumCover.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Straight up old school Swedish death metal here. Nothing more, nothing less. Into the Grave is one of the most heavy and powerful death metal albums out there. Grave are one of a kind as well. The classic Swedish sound is there, but in a much lower tone. Accompanied by heavy riffs and fast drumming, you get one hell of an album. If you like Swedish Death metal in the slightest, there is no excuse for you to not check out this album.

Highlights:
Deformed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2S_bplyaEk)

http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/0e191a1a6e9075023f59b4337fbb9258/118361.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Another Swedish death metal classic. This is also an interesting album to me. Unleashed really mixes it up on here. Some parts are slow, other parts upbeat, melodic, technical, fast, thrash-like... This album is all over the place! However, Unleashed does it without making a disaster and remembering that they are a death metal band, and that's what they stick to the entire album. The production on here is different, but one of my favorites. Their logo is killer as well. But if you want a hell of a listen, check out Where No Life Dwells.

Highlights:
Before the Creation of Time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCv0d-ThM_E)
The Dark One (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5D_p-0a8b9U)

Decapitated - Winds of Creation

http://metalship.org/archives/albums/album1925.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

One of the most complex technical death metal albums out without being just mindless scales. Also Decapitated's best album, hands down. Decapitated hasn't put out anything up to par to Winds of Creation since it was released. The guitar riffs are just mind blowing. Incredibly complicated and technical, yet enough to comprehend and bang your head along to. The only thing better than the guitar on here is the drums. Very, VERY fast and technical as well. More than just blast beats here. Vitek (R.I.P.)is a monster. What's even more mind blowing is that he was fucking 15 when he recorded this. It's a damn shame that they only play the title track live, with albums like Nihility (not a bad album at all) and the piece of shit they put out last year, this album is being overlooked like no other. This album deserves all the attention it can get, even for 2000 it was innovative and just flat out intense.

Nile - Annihilation of the Wicked

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51hMsARfqhL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Genre: Brutal/Technical Death Metal

Nile do have a lot of awesome releases out, but this one is my personal favorite. Annihilation of the Wicked and Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka come close, but I gotta give it to this one. This is the first album to feature out of this world lunatic George Kollias on drums, and god damn, did he make a good first impression! Opening the album with your typical ambient Egyptian guitar whatever you call it, well, you know that it's Nile. The Egyptian themed lyrics and influences fit incredibly well in their music. But after that first track is done... BAM. Blast beats, fast riffs, your typical Nile with extra intensity. This is a very chaotic album. The longer songs are awesome as well, but are more slow/mid-paced with Egyptian themes to them... which isn't a problem! Very good album, check it out!

Highlights:
Cast Down the Heretic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZ5QleN03DU)
Sacrifice Unto Sebek (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRM1zw_v-NM)

Genre: Death/Doom Metal

The album art basically describes this album as a whole. Dark, gloomy, and heavy as hell. Hooded Menace are one of the best newer death/doom bands out there. They don't mess around with doom, they play slow and keep it that way. And they couldn't do it better. Everything about Fulfill the Curse just fits together to make a top notch death/doom album. The low tuned guitars, the dark riffs and melodies, the drum sound, the low death vocals... It's all just perfect for what it is. Highly recommended to any doom metal fans.

Perfect way to describe the album. I'd have to choose Nihility as my favorite, but this album is a classic. Don't know why it took me so long to get into these guys.

My opinions differs only in your opinion of Carnival Is Forever. I don't think it was a great album, but if you give them a different vocalist (Jasta or whatever the fuck the dumb ass hippie's name is, sucks), the album would actually be pretty good IMO. I still think there is some great riffage in it. Definately respect your opinion though.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b3/Opeth_-_Deliverance.jpg/220px-Opeth_-_Deliverance.jpg

This is one of Opeth's more dark and heavy albums. You can tell they took that kind of approach to this album when writing it. While still having their progressive elements to their music, most of the tracks have lots of death metal elements to them. This is my favorite of theirs because they combine progressive death metal with a dark atmosphere, making something haunting, heavy and just all around awesome.

They don't mess around with doom, they play slow and keep it that way. And they couldn't do it better. Everything about Fulfill the Curse just fits together to make a top notch death/doom album. The low tuned guitars, the dark riffs and melodies, the drum sound, the low death vocals... It's all just perfect for what it is. Highly recommended to any doom metal fans.

Highlights:
Fulfill the Curse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsYjR0l9UlY) 2:52 - That is all.
Laboratory Nightmares (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJcry0pPsus)
Beauty and the Feast (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnOws4aacDE)


:rocker: Nice choice. I think I like Never Cross The Dead a little bit more, but it really is a toss up. Can't wait for the new one this year.

Opeth - Deliverance

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b3/Opeth_-_Deliverance.jpg/220px-Opeth_-_Deliverance.jpg

Genre: Progressive Death Metal

This is one of Opeth's more dark and heavy albums. You can tell they took that kind of approach to this album when writing it. While still having their progressive elements to their music, most of the tracks have lots of death metal elements to them. This is my favorite of theirs because they combine progressive death metal with a dark atmosphere, making something haunting, heavy and just all around awesome.

Highlights:
Wreath (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ducEr9xAL5Q)
Deliverance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-PaT0Bgj-Y)

Hooded Menace was a nice discovery too. Most death/doom bands either go for the darker,filthy,rotten sound, or they go for the sorrowful, gloomy, melancholy sound, but i've never heard a band actually integrate both styles together.

Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the Mutilated

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/27/Tombofthemutilated.jpeg/220px-Tombofthemutilated.jpeg

Genre: Death Metal

So many Cannibal Corpse albums to choose from, but after some thinking and looking at it from an overall album perspective, I decided to go with this one. It's dirty, heavy, and old school. Pulverizing riffs and drums from front to back with no remorse. Plus the bass work on here is phenomenal, even if it is following the guitar for the most part. This was also back when Chris Barnes was actually a GOOD vocalist! Overall, this album is killer and if you haven't heard it by now... well shit. That's a problem.

Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/62/Arsis_A_Celebration_Of_Guilt.jpg/220px-Arsis_A_Celebration_Of_Guilt.jpg

Genre: Technical/Melodic Death Metal

This album is one of the most original, somewhat innovative albums out there. Arsis did what a lot of bands didn't even try: Creating a perfectly even mix of death metal with technicality AND melody. Like, they don't lean on the technicality than melody and vice versa. They mix it SPOT ON 50/50 throughout the entire album. It's honestly incredible. As if that wasn't enough, add on the musicianship of every member on the album as well as the catchy riffs, leads, and solos. This album is definitely worth the time to listen to. Definitely Arsis' best album as well.

Master - Master

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/images/covers/master-master.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

One of the very first death metal albums ever. The songs were already written in 1985 but weren't recorded and released on this hell of a debut til 1990. This album is aggressive, primitive, and all around awesome. Most of the songs are fast paced, almost thrash, but has the right amount of intensity to be death metal. This is a legendary album from a legendary band (from Chicago, I may add :D ). Check out history.

http://www.metalunderground.com/images/covers/Krisiun_-_Southern_Storm_cover.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

This album... THIS ALBUM IS FUCKING BRUTAL. Dear god, it's heavy, fast, crushing... everything that makes an album brutal, Southern Storm has. I still need to see this band live, because if they can make an album as intense as this, I can't even imagine how it would be live. Listen to this album and bow to it.

They also do a sick cover of Sepultura's Refuse/Resist on here.

Decrepit Birth - Diminishing Between Worlds

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51OfFqoCgLL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Genre: Brutal/Technical Death Metal

An amazing album, especially considering the album that came before it. ...And Time Begins was pretty much the same song repeated for half an hour. I mean, I liked it but it got old pretty fast. Diminishing Between Worlds, on the other hand, is something 100% completely different. First off, the guitarists actually used the highest 3 strings on here! Speaking of which, the guitar work on here is phenomenal. Insanely technical, yet melodic and catchy at times. There's no doubting that the guitarists are incredibly skilled at what they do. The drums fit the brutal death metal aspect of their music, and Bill Robinson is the perfect vocalist for this band. The lyrics are... well, crazy. This is an amazing newer tech death album, one of the best out there for sure. The highlights are my personal favorite songs, but every song on here is amazing in it's own way.

Fun fact: I'm wearing my Decrepit Birth shirt today! How fitting!

Dead Congregation - Graves of the Archangels

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a230/kidcadaver/deadcongregation-gravesofthearchang.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

One of the many bands popping up recently that re-create the classic "Incantation" sound. These guys, Funebrarum, Disma, etc. I personally think Dead Congregation is the best one of all of them to do what they do. Listening to this album, you'd think that Dead Congregation are from New York... not even close. They are from Greece! It's outstanding how a band from across the world can make music that sounds like it came from a totally different country. There is a really dark atmosphere that goes on throughout the album. Accompanied with the AWESOME riffs, this album is sure to please. Props to user xa123 for having this album as his avatar on here!

Incantation - Mortal Throne of Nazarene

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/2/2/9/9/2299.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Speaking of "Incantation" sound, well, here is the band that started it all. Fast drums, almost blast beats but not quite, palm muted tremolo picking riffs, dark atmospheres, doom sections, and very low vocals, all while being incredibly heavy? Yep, that's Incantation. While their first album Onward to Golgotha is awesome and regarded as a death metal landmark, I personally like Mortal Throne of Nazarene a lot more. It has a lot more elements of doom metal and has a very dark feel to it. It's probably one of the darkest, most evil albums around today. This is also regarded as a death metal classic, well, to me at least.

Highlights:
Emaciated Holy Figure (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNug9iYDOmc)

Morgoth - Cursed

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_PbX2yDXjv6k/SAPFeydE6iI/AAAAAAAAABM/FKbzt1ksRis/s320/morgoth.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Something you won't see often: Old school German death metal! This album, hell, Morgoth in general are VERY underrated. Then again, Cursed was released in 1991 where they had a LOT of competition. I personally consider 1991 one of the best years for death metal, Cursed making a big contribution as well. Morgoth are considered one of the bands to have the most similar sound to Death. The vocals being one of the big reasons, they are outstanding! The guitar riffs make up a big part of this album as well. This album is underrated like crazy, listen to it and don't miss out any more than you need to! Highly recommended for fans of Death!

Genre: Technical Death Metal

The level of technicality is through the roof on this album. Guitar riffs and insane solos... EVERYWHERE. They're all completely different as well. There is also a lot of brutal death metal influence on here. Onset of Putrefaction is one of the best tech death albums around. Some tech death bands have songs that sound the same on an album, which was actually a problem for their second release, Epitaph, but on here... nope! Completely differentiated, and completely amazing. This album has some of the most complex guitar work around. Unfortunately since the drums were programmed, there wasn't a lot to be done with the drum parts which is probably the only flaw, but everything else is insane on here.

Highlights:
Foul Body Autopsy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wf5s7AQ310)
Culinary Hyperversity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_3jJG_oGSs)
Fermented Offal Discharge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJ7Y4SNj6u8) - The best Necrophagist guitar solo? Quite possibly.

Darkthrone - Soulside Journey

http://www.blackscaped.de/images/product_images/original_images/2584_0.jpg

Genre: Death Metal (only on this album)

It's well known to a lot of people, but Darkthrone weren't always a black metal band. Their very first album, Soulside Journey, will go down in history as a legendary album. But not a black metal album, but rather an old school death metal album. This was recorded at the legendary Sunlight Studios, where all the Swedish death metal bands from the 90s got their awesome sound from. The guys from Entombed actually helped them record this! And what a wonderful job they did. The album is mostly slow/mid-paced, but very crushing at the same time. As stated before, the production is amazing for an album released in 1991. While I do enjoy black metal Darkthrone, I will always prefer Soulside Journey and will always be disappointed that they will never play death metal again.

Gojira - From Mars to Sirius

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51QS4YQSP8L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Genre: Progressive Death Metal

Gojira play a different kind of progressive death metal than say, Opeth or Death on The Sound of Perserverance. For one, Gojira are FUCKING HEAVY AS ALL HELL, especially on this album. Tons of crushing riffs, drums and vocals all over the album. Sometimes they do mix it up with some clean passages as well. This album is interesting as it is heavy. It may be a concept album? Not sure, I think it's about being environmentally friendly though. Either way, this album is catchy, heavy and all around awesome from front to back, definitely give it a listen.

It was around here that Dying Fetus started getting a lot more technical with their music. At this point it was about an equal mix.

Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/7/2/0/8/7208.jpg

Genre: Avant-Garde/Progressive/Brutal Technical Death Metal

As if the genre above didn't state it, this is hands down the weirdest, most fucked up album on here, and I mean weird in a good way. Elvenefris is an experience of it's own. There aren't enough words to describe the whole thing. I'll say this, though: The drums and vocals are brutal, the guitars range from death metal riffing to middle-eastern sales, and the last track is a hell of a way to end the album in all the right ways. Listen to this and have your mind blown.

Highlights:
Bringer of Elvenefris Flame (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eimRwSbq2bk)

Exhumed - Gore Metal

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/2/2/8/5/2285.jpg

Genre: Death Metal/Grindcore

An excellent combination of the two genres listed above. Exhumed create their own sound (well, basically Carcass worship but more extreme) to create what they call "Gore Metal". Filled with brutal yet melodic riffs, intense vocals and fast drums, Gore Metal is a hell of a rager. The vocals are probably the best part of this album, with Matt Harvey doing the higher vocals and Ross Sewage doing the lower growl vocals. So again, basically anything you'd find in earlier Carcass. These guys know how to worship them the right way. The production is pretty bad but it does fit in with the music. Either way, this album is worth the listen.

Highlights:
Open the Abscess (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4Y_knBv64U)
Limb From Limb (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g90PdTG-22M)
Casketkrusher (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtEk_cIjavo) - My favorite Exhumed song!

Also, they re-recorded "Necromaniac" (the first song on this album) on their latest release, All Guts, No Glory. It sounds A LOT better on there, so I'll post that here as well.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1Jke1FRQRrQ/TcfAUVqF2lI/AAAAAAAAABM/-aiOfLjAA1E/s1600/cd_skinless_trample.jpg

Genre: Brutal Death Metal

I'm not gonna lie, this album was a complete surprise, especially with the 3 albums Skinless put out before this one. Their first 2 were just straight up brutal death metal, focusing on gore and whatnot. Then they put out From Sacrifice to Survival, which seemed like a step in a more melodic direction, which really isn't Skinless at all. And then they put out this one. GOD DAMN. What a change, and for the better. This album is non stop chaos from beginning to end. The sound samples are back, and you can already tell from the first one (I believe it's from Conquest of the Planet of the Apes) that the whole album is about war. Additionally, Skinless got their brutality back and it's much more brutal than ever. Part of the reasoning of this could be from the new vocalist that they got on this album. If you saw Origin live over this previous summer, I'm sure you know who Jason Keyser is. He's one hell of a vocalist and definitely helps make this album as intense as it is. Fans of brutal death metal, maybe even slam, check this album out immediately!

Old school Florida death metal. This album is one of the classics that fit within that genre. Very dark and evil, as well as heavy and fast.

Massacre - From Beyond

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/1/1/1/3/1113.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

I'll be honest here, this album is fucking awesome. The guitar riffs are some of the best in death metal. So crushing, heavy, everything about them is just amazing. However, this album has so many flaws it's ridiculous. For one, Bill Andrews is a terrible drummer. Just listen to the double bass sections, he's fluttering all over the place. Rick Rozz, as stated before, had some very killer riffs, but if you've listened to Death's Leprosy, you'll know that his solos are just mindless dive bombs and wanking on the whammy bar. He makes no exception on here as well. The bass can only be heard for very few parts, other than that, pretty much inaudible. However, the vocals are great. Very low but fitting with the music. Despite all these flaws, I always come back listening to it because every riff on here is fucking fantastic. You'll break your neck headbanging to this album.

Massacre - From Beyond

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/1/1/1/3/1113.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

I'll be honest here, this album is fucking awesome. The guitar riffs are some of the best in death metal. So crushing, heavy, everything about them is just amazing. However, this album has so many flaws it's ridiculous. For one, Bill Andrews is a terrible drummer. Just listen to the double bass sections, he's fluttering all over the place. Rick Rozz, as stated before, had some very killer riffs, but if you've listened to Death's Leprosy, you'll know that his solos are just mindless dive bombs and wanking on the whammy bar. He makes no exception on here as well. The bass can only be heard for very few parts, other than that, pretty much inaudible. However, the vocals are great. Very low but fitting with the music. Despite all these flaws, I always come back listening to it because every riff on here is fucking fantastic. You'll break your neck headbanging to this album.

Highlights:
Dawn of Eternity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlsC7lJbofc)
Cryptic Realms (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Vkr2PVA9X8)
From Beyond (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP2JH7PPITM)

This is such a great album even with all the flaws.

Dismember - Indecent & Obscene

http://image.musicimport.biz/sdimages/disk19/734321.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

The second album from Swedish death metal legends Dismember. What separates this album from the rest of the Dismember albums is that the production sounds a lot more raw, yet every instrument sounds more defined in the process. It's hard to explain in words, just listen to any other album of theirs and then this one and you'll see. Anyway, this album is very fast and intense all around and is a perfect example of killer Swedish death metal.

Highlights:
Fleshless (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0BTyyZln9s)
Skinfather (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bheiwRYhCEM&feature=related) - 1:35 for a very important lesson in breakdowns

Pestilence - Consuming Impulse

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Exr3uqbeQzo/Ru9dcYWXOjI/AAAAAAAAALk/hnAwt3ZHAUE/s400/pestilence-consuming%2Bimpulse.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Pestilence has played different kinds of metal with every album. They started out as thrash with their debut, then released this playing awesome old school death metal. They then started playing progressive metal, went on hiatus and put out garbage ever since. But back on topic, Consuming Impulse is fucking sick. This was the peak of their career, no doubt about it. Not as fast as their first album, but since it was a different change in the metal they were playing it made sense. The guitar riffs and vocals on here though.... damn. Some of the finest in all death metal, and so many riffs on one album. Listen to this immediately if you haven't already.

Misery Index - Heirs to Thievery

http://www.metalsucks.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/heirs-to-theivery.jpg

Genre: Death Metal/Grindcore

Probably my album of the year from 2010. Ever since I saw these guys live with Dying Fetus 2 years ago I was hooked on them like no other. This album is fucking FAST. The drumming on here is phenomenal. The vocals are really powerful as well, making the album even more chaotic. The guitar work helps pick up the fast pace the drums set, along with some sick Dying Fetus kind of riffs here and there. This album is fucking awesome and is arguably one of the best releases of 2010.

Highlights:
Fed to the Wolves (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aru7qI4dVKI)
Heirs to Thievery (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUj6pFKJuTs) - My favorite Misery Index song. I'm proud to say that after months and months and more months of trying and practicing that I can play this on drums!

Aborted - Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done

http://images.wikia.com/lyricwiki/images/9/96/Aborted_-_Goremageddon-_The_Saw_And_The_Carnage_Done.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Quite possibly Aborted's best album. They really stepped it up after Engineering the Dead. I mean, that was a good release but this one, wow! Production quality, song writing and overall brutality just skyrocketed in that time period! Sven's vocals are phenomenal on here, the tones for the guitars and bass sound incredible, and the drums are tight. Aborted make great use of sound samples, so great that if they left them out, it'd feel awkward listening to it. Listen to "Parasitic Flesh Resection" to see what I mean. A very insane album, works well when played at high volumes!

Fun fact: This is the very first extreme metal album to have bass drops!

Highlights:
Parasitic Flesh Resection (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esRuHkcecLs)
The Saw and the Carnage Done (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAvKeuRXotk)

Cynic - Focus

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_W4BiZDbxhcc/TRyAav9TuOI/AAAAAAAAAeQ/JQC9ldXtqdM/s1600/Focus.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal (only this album)

Yes, Focus is death metal. It's very interesting, technical and obscure all around death metal. Nothing like it was released at the time. This is one of the finer tech death albums of the early 90s. Hell, Cynic are one of the best tech death bands of the 90s! The guitar work on here is amazing. Lots of intriguing guitar leads and riffs. The drums sound a bit muffled (Sean Reinert is still a beast) but that's just the production on here in general. Cynic have gone through a ton of genre changes over the years but I personally love them as a tech death band, and Focus in general.

Highlights:
Celestial Voyage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xflrev6d_ig)

Immolation - Close to a World Below

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61DfBZMbP2L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

If I were to recommend an Immolation album to someone who hasn't listened to them before, I'd honestly recommend anything they put out. They are one of the most consistent bands out there today. But they took it to a new level with Close to a World Below. It's like they took the factors for intensity, blasphemy, and darkness and shot those levels through the roof. There is not a single dull moment on here, it's all killer. Your neck will be off your body by the time this album is over. Seeing some of these songs live are just phenomenal as well (although they should close with the title track of this album, not play it in the beginning). Listen to this as soon as possible.

Highlights:
Higher Coward (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6LXlV1bWNo)

Cryptopsy - None So Vile

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4f/Cryptopsy_nonesovile.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

Another French Canadian tech death band, but what separates Cryptopsy from everyone else there is that they incorporate a lot of brutality into their music. Indecipherable lyrics, rapid blast beats and drumming in general, and crushing guitar riffs. They don't strain from the technicality as well. The drums also change up a lot, and the bass does a lot more than just follow the guitars, what with the leads it creates at times. Everything on this album is absolutely phenomenal. The musicianship of every member in Cryptopsy, especially on this album, could be considered a supergroup. While there is a lot of competition out there, this could be considered one of the best 90s death metal albums.

Highlights:
Slit Your Guts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkNbTS7uhLE) - 1:52 is a perfect example of an awesome breakdown.
Graves of the Fathers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iLmF_2q7KA)

Wintersun - Wintersun

http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lnvll1Ic2z1qmn8fdo1_500.jpg

Genre: Melodic Death Metal

The last of the few melodic death metal albums on here (well, you COULD count #15 as melodeath but getting back to the point...). Jari Mäenpää knows his shit. He made the first 2 Ensiferum albums awesome and he made this even better. The guitar work on here is just mind blowing, some of the best I've honestly heard. Add very precise song structure and writing, a great drummer (the guy used to be in Rotten Sound, who would've guessed?) and you've got a wonderful album. This whole album feels like a story is being told. Lots of very fast parts, as well as more atmospheric and slower passages as well. The songs do get longer as the album goes on but they don't drag on one bit. Get listening to this and be amazed.

Death - Leprosy

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/images/covers/death-leprosy.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

We all know this band and this album. Classic old school death metal. Memorable lyrics, guitar riffs, everything about this is just awesome. This is an excellent follow up to their debut, Scream Bloody Gore. They mixed it up a lot more on here instead of going full out fast death metal for the most part (which is actually why I love SBG so much!) If you saw my review for Massacre's From Beyond, you'll know that the other guitarist and drummer... aren't very good. Luckily Chuck is on here to provide awesome guitar leads and solos, although Rick Rozz still provides his lovely whammy bar fun. There are also no very fast double bass parts like in From Beyond so we can hear Bill Andrews blatantly fucking that up as well! He does a much better job on here. Regardless, this album is an old school classic.

Highlights:
Leprosy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFyZvw84T3g)
Born Dead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hafCho8XQfI) - "Relief does not exist when you are born to die." - One of my favorite lyrics ever.

Carcass - Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/images/covers/carcass-necroticism-descanting-the-insalubrious.jpg

Genre: Melodic Death Metal/Grindcore

The definition of not only awesome, but a "bridge" album. With the more grindcore oriented Symphonies of Sickness that came out before this one, and the pure melodic death metal Heartwork after it, Necroticism was the big bridge between the two genres. They actually managed to combine the two into one sort of super-genre, and damn, they did it good enough to make this album of theirs my favorite! There are a ton of melodic riffs on here, along with fast grind parts like you'd find on Symphonies. The production gives the album a very dirty feel as well, which fits in with the album perfectly. A lot of the songs are longer by Carcass standards as well, almost all of them being over 5 or 6 minutes long. Again, if none of you get this, I apologize as I am not very good at describing stuff like this in detail so that everyone can comprehend it! I'll just say this, this album is more innovative than people think and it is very underrated as well.

Really, who would dislike this album? Scream Bloody Gore I can understand, but Leprosy?Lots of people on here have anywhere from no love to tons of hate for it. It's mostly young people who have only heard their proggier stuff and think that's all Death was ever about (and by extension, that they "sucked" on their earlier albums before all technical stuff started). The production on their earlier albums (especially SBG) is not up to modern standards, either, so they get a lot of flak for that as well. What some folks don't get is that that is part of the appeal for fans like myself. They seem to understand it when it comes to black metal, but not for death metal.

Some folks just don't seem to want to accept that the progressive, technical band that was Death before Chuck died started out as a brutally heavy, genre-founding, ground-shaking, filthy, dirty, screaming, growling behemoth.


EDIT: Nice pick on the above album as well. :fist:

That's fucking disappointing. The production on the first 2 albums especially are awesome for death metal, I wouldn't have it any other way. I mean I do love later Death but to just say the old stuff sucks... I can't say I've personally ever seen that before. I mean I have friends who don't like SBG that much because it's straight forward (which is kinda true) but they love Leprosy and Spiritual Healing.

Obituary - Cause of Death

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1324/1225193095_d568da805d.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Fuckin Obituary. They hit it hard with this album, one of the biggest old school Florida death metal albums out there. They slowed it down quite a bit on this album compared to their debut, Slowly We Rot. There are still a lot of fast sections on the album though. It's just more diverse throughout. Another thing they did with this album: Make the riffs AMAZING. So many riffs on here that you can bang your head to with ease. It's just outstanding. And then there's the obligatory mention of vocalist John Tardy. His voice fits this kind of death metal perfectly. Florida death metal is not to be fucked with, and this album proves it.

They also do a cover of Celtic Frost's "Circle of the Tyrants" which may just be better than the original.

Highlights:
Body Bag (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnsjVD8dZCQ)
Chopped In Half (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQgCZasm6mU)
Turned Inside Out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVp_mWzp358) - Ok, they didn't have the studio version of "Dying" on here, which I was gonna put, whatever. But they don't have "Turned Inside Out"? Hell no, that's my favorite Obituary song. The video is a live one but the quality is good enough to show how awesome the song is and how much I would kill to be at that show.

Entombed - Left Hand Path

http://www.covershut.com/covers/Entombed-Left-Hand-Path-Front-Cover-28103.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

One of the best Swedish Death Metal albums out there, no question about it. The number one thing you'll notice about the music... the fucking guitar tone. A shitty Peavey guitar amp and this awesome piece of equipment (http://jonebelltxsoundgrdn.com/Reviews/erpics/BossHM2Sz010.jpg) made the "buzzsaw" tone that a lot of bands still use to this day. I do believe Entombed were the ones to create that guitar tone as well. Combine that evil tone with awesome guitar riffs, and very, VERY strong vocals and you got yourself a legendary album. Seriously, this album is fucking awesome and a landmark in death metal history for a number of reasons. Listen to it.

Winter - Into Darkness

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-uNc6986_uMM/TZp-VxPtOyI/AAAAAAAABes/xFWqcON979Q/s1600/Winter-Into-Darkness1.jpg

Genre: Death/Doom Metal

I'm sure you all the know the band Agalloch, as well as their music. Their music creates an atmosphere as if it were winter, and you are walking through a snow covered forest. It is grey out, the snow is falling lightly and you feel as if you are in a higher state of mind. Winter's music creates a winter-like (ho ho!) atmosphere too. Except, with Agalloch, you feel as if you in a beautiful white forest. With Winter, you are in a snow covered wasteland, cold winds blowing, nothing in sight with all the fog in the way. Winter combine both death metal and doom metal equally to make one hell of an album. The tones of all the instruments are nothing I've heard before. They are so dark and low tuned. The vocals are very low as well, yet very comprehensible. This is one of the darkest, heaviest and slowest death and doom metal albums out there. Recommended for a darker, cold evening.

Highlights:
Oppression Freedom/Oppresion Reprise + Servants of the Warsmen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI6qV0-_oKI&feature=related)
Eternal Frost (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW9yijB-lwg)

Some folks just don't seem to want to accept that the progressive, technical band that was Death before Chuck died started out as a brutally heavy, genre-founding, ground-shaking, filthy, dirty, screaming, growling behemoth.




FUCK YEAH!! That's the Death I love. No disrespect to their later material, but as many of you know I'm more a fan of brute than tech.

Dismember - Like an Ever Flowing Stream

http://revistareplicante.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/1991-Dismember-Like-An-Everflowing-Stream.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Here is one of the two bands that repeats on here. Really, I didn't expect to have two Dismember albums my self but I can't choose only one between this one and Indecent & Obscene. While Indecent & Obscene has the aggression and raw brutality I love, Like An Everflowing Stream has better song structure and melody to it, combined with the usual Swedish death metal brutality, and that's what separates Dismember from not only the other classic Swedish death metal bands, but all death metal bands in general. The classic guitar tone is more than audible on this album, and it makes the more melodic guitar solos, riffs, and leads sound more defined. There is definitely a hardcore punk influence on here with the faster songs as well. Overall, this is my favorite Swedish death metal album because it combines so many good aspects of music into one album.

Highlights:
Override of the Overture (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0ZCAarIVSI)
Bleed for Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjrz93QOeG0)
And So Is Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugUPjcU32TE) At 1:45 you hear one of my favorite moments in music ever.

Skinless - Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1Jke1FRQRrQ/TcfAUVqF2lI/AAAAAAAAABM/-aiOfLjAA1E/s1600/cd_skinless_trample.jpg

Genre: Brutal Death Metal

I'm not gonna lie, this album was a complete surprise, especially with the 3 albums Skinless put out before this one. Their first 2 were just straight up brutal death metal, focusing on gore and whatnot. Then they put out From Sacrifice to Survival, which seemed like a step in a more melodic direction, which really isn't Skinless at all. And then they put out this one. GOD DAMN. What a change, and for the better. This album is non stop chaos from beginning to end. The sound samples are back, and you can already tell from the first one (I believe it's from Conquest of the Planet of the Apes) that the whole album is about war. Additionally, Skinless got their brutality back and it's much more brutal than ever. Part of the reasoning of this could be from the new vocalist that they got on this album. If you saw Origin live over this previous summer, I'm sure you know who Jason Keyser is. He's one hell of a vocalist and definitely helps make this album as intense as it is. Fans of brutal death metal, maybe even slam, check this album out immediately!

Highlights:
Overlord (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtXMdFTmwkM)
Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y5Tqgf8_jM)
Execution of Reason (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDJNu-rFJhI)

Didn't see that you picked this one way back there, and didn't see it get any love. It's fucking fantastic; great to see it get some representation.

Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/6/6/6/666.jpg?1417

Genre: Brutal Death Metal

The very first brutal death metal album. One of the most innovative, inspiring, and awesome albums ever. A lot of people would expect Pierced From Within to be on here, which is also a great album, but I'm biased against it because drummer Mike Smith isn't on that. I personally think that he is the driving force on this album. He completely changed blast beats for the death metal sound. He is a god damn monster on here. That's not to say that the other musicians aren't good either. The guitars are low tuned of course, but the riffs are catchy and heavy as well. And we all know our lovable friend Frank Mullen. Very fitting and powerful vocals. This album is history in brutal death metal. Oh, and this album has the ORIGINAL brutal breakdowns and slams. None of that watered down one note the whole time garbage. Effigy of the Forgotten is brutal, heavy, and history.

Highlights:
Liege of Inveracity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGOL-p_hzoA) - 2:53, that is all.

Autopsy - Mental Funeral

http://www.decibelmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/autopsy_mental.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

There's no doubting that the first two Autopsy albums are the best ones. Now the real question is, which one is better? In all honesty, both of them are so good that you can't compete them, so it's all down to a matter of preference. I personally like Mental Funeral a lot more than Severed Survival. To me, Mental Funeral has a lot more memorable guitar riffs and moments in general and a way darker atmosphere. In the Grip of Winter" is a perfect example of both. This album is full of amazing guitar and drum work, some of the guitar leads are definitely the best in death metal. Chris Reifert also does a sick job of creating pure evil with his vocals. The production helps contribute to the musicianship. I don't know how to describe it, but it's awesome and fitting! Mental Funeral is dark, twisted, and all around killer. A lot of people prefer Severed Survival over it. While that album is awesome too, I guess I'm the minority that prefers Mental Funeral!

Highlights:

Mental Funeral has more of its own sound. Severed Survival sounded pretty similar to Death's Scream Bloody Gore to me. Kinda funny how both bands started with a similar sound and ended up taking it in two completely different directions.

Man, I remember when I first discovered Suffocation. I had no idea who the hell they were until I saw them open up for Carcass back in 2009 at the California Metal Fest. My god, they were one of the few only bands to truly "blow me away" at that festival(other than carcass of course). I also thought it was great how there were a couple of black dudes in the band too, I really liked that. Diversity is always awesome for a band, and right after the show was over I got this album the next day and felt like kicking myself in the ass for not discovering the brutalness that is SUFFOCATION before going to the fest. After the festival, and after delving deep into their back catalouge I officially became a fan :fist: . Still feel like kicking myself for missing out on their headlining tour back in 2010... Good choice, Great thread. :rocker:

Thanks! Your posts are always enlightening, there's always a sick story with them! I did see Suffocation on their 2010 tour and unfortunately the venue was HORRIBLE so they got their set cut short, but even then they still killed it. I'm sure at MDF they're gonna get a decent set. But to see them with Carcass... fuck man. I don't think I'd survive that!

Anyway, I'll post the next album now.

Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/9/3/2/6/93260.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Bolt Thrower are another band who consistently put out awesome releases since they first started. I did read something along the lines about them trying to make the "perfect" Bolt Thrower album, and after that they wouldn't make anymore... Well, it's been 7 years since their latest albumThose Once Loyal was released, and I do believe they achieved perfection with that one. Everything was just taken to the next level on there. They got the classic lineup back together and the song writing was taken even further. Everything is a lot more memorable yet heavy. The vocals are incredibly powerful and the guitars have the traditional Bolt Thrower sound with the melodies and riffs. Also, not to mention the killer bass tone on here which is audible AT ALL TIMES. I'm not saying Bolt Thrower's previous releases weren't good, because believe me, everything they've put out is of high quality, but they really outdid themselves on this one. Everything on here is incredibly outstanding. The only band thing about this is that this may be the perfect Bolt Thrower album, so there is a chance that there will be no more future Bolt Thrower releases. However, I could be, and seriously hope, I'm wrong. It's just hard to imagine how they could take it further from here. But really, this album is amazing, one of the best death metal records of the 2000-2010 decade, by far. Maybe even one of the best death metal records ever.

Bolt Thrower :horns:

They actually recorded a follow-up to TOL but scrapped it because they didn't feel it was good enough. Kind of a shame, but a noble move all the same.

Edit: Nevermind, I just checked myself and apparently they never did record it. They had an album pretty much written though.

I've been a Bolt Thrower fan for a long time and I really wish they'd put out another album. I guess if what they've written isn't up to their standards though, it's better they don't put it out. They could at least come over to this side of the world and play some shows though!

From what I know, they hate flying, or maybe traveling long distances in general. When they played Maryland Deathfest in 2009 it took the guys running the fest a long time to finally convince them to come to the states. Sadly it looks like that's the last time in a long time that they'll be here.

I think every Bolt Thrower release is at LEAST a 8/10. They're consistently probably the best old-school death metal band still around today. BT is a band where you could pick literally any album they've released as your favorite, and it would be okay.

I dunno if that's true that they hate flying or whatever, but this is what they posted on their website when they cancelled their US tour plans in 2006:

"Unfortunately their label, Metal Blade Records refused to financially back the band, i.e. pay towards the flights, etc. Despite trying to work out other ways to make this happen, the band found they were unable to finance a tour of this scale on their own and therefore had to stop any further planning of the tour. Bolt Thrower apologize to Maurizio (Iacono - KATAKLYSM singer) and Thunderdome Touring, the promoters/bands who were willing to participate in the tour and their fans in the US who were hoping to finally see them live. Regrettably, it looks like while Bolt Thrower are signed to Metal Blade Records they will be unable to tour the States."

Atheist - Unquestionable Presence

http://img2.wantitall.co.za/images/ShowImage.aspx?ImageId=Atheist-Unquestionable-Presence-Dlx%7C61D3LK6UY%2BL.jpg

Genre: Progressive/Technical Death Metal

I'm happy to have seen this album on people's various top albums lists. This album deserves all the recognition it can get. Some of the best musicianship is shown on here. Every person on this album is incredibly talented at what they do. First, the bass doesn't follow the guitars, the guitars follow the bass! The bass is audible at all times for the most part provides leads or riffs which are then followed by the guitars. The guitar solos and acoustic/clean guitar sections are incredibly well written and tie into the songs perfectly. The drums are very technical as well, some crazy drumming is to be found here. The vocals are fitting for the album as well, but the lyrics are just outstanding. Every song has lots of thought provoking lyrics, it gives listeners something to think about. To think Atheist went from death/thrash to THIS. Piece of Time was great but the evolution between that and Unquestionable Presence is remarkable. Overall, this album is full of excellent musicianship and again, deserves all the recognition it can get. Another one of the best death metal albums out there.

Vader - Impressions In Blood

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/1/2/3/6/123669.jpg?5711

Genre: Death/Thrash Metal

Vader is yet another band who has been putting out consistent kick ass releases since they started. And like Bolt Thrower, in the mid 2000s they really outdid themselves. Impressions In Blood is another one of those albums that I love because it's fucking FAST. Not only that, it's incredibly heavy. Vader sure know how to make incredibly awesome music (with horrible song titles) that will blow you away. The album is about 37 minutes song, so relatively short but it's still an album you'd be going back to over and over again. Oh, and the album is LOUD. Like really loud. I don't know if it's the production or the version I have or something, but it sure as hell sounds better that way! Vader are one of my favorite death metal bands ever, none of their albums disappoint but Impressions In Blood is well worth listening to.

Asphyx - Last One On Earth

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/4/9/2/1/4921.jpg?3324

Genre: Death/Doom Metal

This may be the heaviest album on this list. From start to finish, this album is just a heavy monster. So many riffs.... so many. The guitar distortion on here is through the roof, I'm pretty sure that the guitar tuning is Drop D, maybe D AT THE LOWEST. The drums have a tone of their own as well, hard to explain but it fits well with the guitars. And Martin Van Drunen's vocals on here are some of the best he's ever done, ranging from higher screams to very low growls. This album is just all around chaotic. It's kind of weird to me how this is classified as death/doom metal... I mean there are a few doom parts on here but for the most part it's straight up death metal. Well, either way this album is still amazing. It's highly addictive as well. I believe it was last year or two years ago, I spent like 2 months straight listening to this album. If you want to listen to one of the heaviest albums ever made, here you go.

Pestilence - Consuming Impulse

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Exr3uqbeQzo/Ru9dcYWXOjI/AAAAAAAAALk/hnAwt3ZHAUE/s400/pestilence-consuming%2Bimpulse.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Pestilence has played different kinds of metal with every album. They started out as thrash with their debut, then released this playing awesome old school death metal. They then started playing progressive metal, went on hiatus and put out garbage ever since. But back on topic, Consuming Impulse is fucking sick. This was the peak of their career, no doubt about it. Not as fast as their first album, but since it was a different change in the metal they were playing it made sense. The guitar riffs and vocals on here though.... damn. Some of the finest in all death metal, and so many riffs on one album. Listen to this immediately if you haven't already.

Convulse - World Without God

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-x5l5ynS9pw/SymhTppy0zI/AAAAAAAAAYs/tmelUBrqKwE/s400/convulse_world.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Another 90s Finnish death metal classic. This album is a lot more upbeat in some sections, while having old school slower parts as well. While being around at the same time, this album could easily fit in with the classic 90s Swedish death metal albums back then. This album defines European death metal. It's heavy, the riffs are crushing, the album artwork is awesome, and the album just speeds by and kicks you in the face. Definitely recommended for any old school death metal fan, it's a hell of an underrated album.

Highlights:
World Without God (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEqE9MgVzJg)
Incantation of Restoration (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0gF0b6pRvg)
Resuscitation of Evilness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKN62k4eB6s)Nice pick on this, by the way. The beginning of "Incantation of Restoration" is one of the coolest things I've ever heard in death metal. :fist:

Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/1/9/1/191.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Well some of you knew this was coming! Indeed, this album is way too awesome to not be one of my 3 favorite death metal albums. Insane guitar work, and REALLY insane drum work. Pete Sandoval is a fucking monster. If the dark and heavy guitar riffs didn't make this album awesome, Pete did for sure. The lyrics are some of my favorites too. For example, in Maze of Torment:

Vultures moaning a funeral dirge
Walls await to cradle you and rip your soul apart
Incessant screams echoes through the maze
Insanity approaches - imminent demise

Yep. I'm sure a lot of you have heard this album at least once so you know what to expect. But for those unfortunate ones who haven't... damn. I'm sorry you've been missing out this long. Please end your misery and finally listen to this album! Another one of the best death metal albums, ever.

Nocturnus - The Key

http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/125/d7b3b8eb710a4279b019e2fdea71582a/l.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Like Morgoth being the band that had the most similar sound to early Death, Nocturnus is easily the band that has the most similar sound to early Morbid Angel, except with a twist. They use keys! Nocturnus were the very first band to use keys and synths in death metal, and they do it right. Instead of having them for shits or giggles or just one synth note the whole time so they can claim to be symphonic, they create a very eerie and sci-fi like atmosphere throughout the album, which is what the album is all about. It is a concept album about a cyborg being sent back in time to kill baby Jesus Christ. Now THAT is fucking badass. What's more badass is the music itself. The guitars in general are just all around technical. The solos and leads on here are just fucking awesome. The drums sound great as well, lots of great fills and patterns all around. The vocalist is actually the drummer as well, and he is very reminiscent of early David Vincent. Unfortunately for the bass, it's barely audible, if not at all. From what I heard, the bassist showed up to the recording drunk and couldn't record the tracks so one of the guitarists did. Either way, you can hardly hear it which is a shame. If the bassist was as skilled as the rest of the band, who knows how much better this album could've been! Overall, a very underrated Florida Death Metal band and album, and a very innovative one as well. Again, fans of Morbid Angel who haven't heard this album yet, you will LOVE it.

Highlights:
Lake of Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB6BUG1HYAU)
Standing In Blood (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRm5oC0WLi4)

Gorguts - The Erosion of Sanity

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c8/The_Erosion_of_Sanity.jpg

Genre: Technical Death Metal

This was another band that was hard to choose from. Gorguts has 4 full lengths out, and they are all good in their own way, but I personally like The Erosion of Sanity the most. On this album, Gorguts combines the raw intensity of old school death metal with extreme technicality to create an obscure death metal sound of their own. The riffs are are very defined and even more technical. Again, any fans of tech death should check out not only this underrated album, but this band in general.

Oh, and if you want a real mind fuck, listen to the album Obscura.

Highlights:
Condemned to Obscurity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYTpR3VhzUk)
Orphans of Sickness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_SGhxrBOko)
Odors of Existence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvoVoGAeSG0)

Death - Symbolic

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/6/1/6/616.jpg

Genre: Death Metal

Ok, no bullshit, here it is. My favorite death metal album ever. Again, not much of a surprise since everyone has heard (or at least I hope everyone has heard) this album.

The difference between Symbolic and the rest of the albums on this list is that Symbolic has more of a personal meaning to me. I've listened to this album a ton of times over the years, posting lyrics as facebook statuses, and learning every single song on guitar at one point. It's just an album I could go back to over and over again to enjoy like it was the first time I was listening to it.

For some reason, a lot of people don't call Symbolic "death metal", usually progressive metal. The way I look at it is that The Sound of Perseverance is just straight up progressive metal, but Symbolic is a lot more heavier. No doubting it, there are progressive elements on Symbolic but there is enough intensity where it still is death metal as a whole. Sure not as intense or dirty as, you know, Scream Bloody Gore, but death metal is varied.

Anyway, I can assume almost anyone who remotely listens to death metal has heard Symbolic. But for those who haven't, I'll give a quick run down. The drums, guitars, and lyrics on here are incredible. Thank you Gene Hoglan for staying to play on this album! His drums, as usual, are crazy. They have a huge driving force behind the intensity of the album. As for the guitars, the solos really stand out. Very technical yet have an emotional feel to them as well. The lyrics are more than well thought out. It's like an epic story with every song. They are also a lot more philosophical in some parts. An example of the lyrics in general (Sacred Serenity) :

Maybe we could take a step back
And discover what leads us to attack
Time that is short - distance unknown
For them, each day life has just begun
Observing spirits on the wall
What are they telling you?

As the album goes through and hits the finale, "Perennial Quest", we see the end of the epic journey known as Symbolic. That song is one of the best ways to end an album. I find Symbolic to be the peak of Chuck's career. He definitely took everything to new levels on here. This album has been with me since I got into metal and will be one of those albums that will continue to stick with me for a very long time. R.I.P. Chuck.

Thanks for viewing my list of my favorite death metal albums! I hope you all enjoyed it and even found some new discoveries.

Death - Symbolic

http://www.metal-archives.com/images/6/1/6/616.jpg

Genre: Death Metal



My favorite Death album and probably the only other album I can put above Altars in a death metal list. That iconic riff off of Symbolic is one of the greatest moments in metal history for me, on par with the first note of War Pigs, the opening riff to Aces High and that infamous backwards riff to Immortal Rites.

There is no such thing as "slamcore". There is Brutal Death Metal, which can be slowed down into chromatic breakdowns pioneered by bands like Suffocation, which result in what is sometimes referred to as Slam Metal, or just Slam.
