Off the top of my head I know Blessed Are The Sick, Effigy Of the Forgotten, and Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious came out that year, which are all in my Top 5. Plus Death's Human which is in my Top 10. And many more great albums.
Yeah in terms of death metal, 1991 is definitely the best. Including what you said there is also Unquestionable Presence (Atheist), Like an Ever Flowing Stream (Dismember), Mental Funeral (Autopsy), War Master (Bolt Thrower), and a bumch more.
Overall for me though, that's way too tough of a decision. Gonna have to think about that...
