6. Asphyx - The Rack (1991)

Asphyx is one of the early death metal bands from The Netherlands, along with Pestilence. Many consider this album legendary.

7. At the Gates - The Red in the Sky is Ours (1992)

At the Gates was one of the earliest melodic death metal bands. Their first release is the most raw, showing the beginning of a new sub-genre. Personally, this is my favorite album of theirs.

8. Atheist - Piece of Time (1989)

While Unquestionable Presence is by no doubt much more spectacular, Piece of Time is closer to the death metal sound. Atheist is one of the standout bands in the Florida death metal scene, often credited (along with others) for starting technical death metal.

9. Autopsy - Mental Funeral (1991)

On the opposite side of the country, Autopsy was putting out some incredible, raw death metal. Mental Funeral is my personal favorite, but it was a hard choice.

10. Banished - Deliver Me Unto Pain (1994)
Ride the wings of death.
