Essential Metal Albums

Okay so after successfully stirring the pot with the False Metal thread, I figured I'd be nice and post some essential death metal albums. Most of these will be Death Metal, some Thrash, and crossover stuff (blackened death, etc.) I will not be posting many Black Metal albums in this thread, that will be seperate because I have a feeling most people will be like "fuck this lo-fi bullshit it sounds like ass" and I completely understand that. So go ahead and youtube this shit if you want. Or ignore it. Either way it doesn't matter because this is the internet.

Well, I'm fucking tired of this. I'm actually leaving a lot of stuff out. Between 88-98 alone I could double this list. It's a little too old school right now because I kind of started old and worked my way up. Anyway this is a start, I'll edit this as I go and I'm open to suggestions. Doom, BM, and Grind will eventually get their own "Essential" thread. I purposely left out anything huge (Big 4, etc) that may be considered a given by many people. Lotta work to be done, but all of these albums are great alternatives to...um...shit that sucks

Unhappy

I was excited when I saw Incubus on your list and then realized that they weren't the band I had in mind.

So aparently you didn't read the OP. Specifically the part about omitting obvious choices, big four, etc. This is primarily a DM list.

Not nearly enough Opeth and Obituary and too much of nearly everything else, except Cynic, Nile, Carcass, Death and Atheist. The title really shouldn't be "essential metal albums" either. The list is far to specific for such a general title. This is, as you rightly pointed out, an Essential Death Metal Albums" list.

I think a thrash list along these lines would be quite interesting.

I don't consider those albums essential in the realm of the bands other work, or the realm of DM. I like them, but not essential.
