I'll throw some Obituary in there but Opeth, while I enjoy them thoroughly, is not DM.

So what album goes in exchange for which Obituary album?

I think the members of Opeth might contest that point.

The last two Obituary albums have been excellent.

I'd drop Kreator. Not because they're not awesome (clearly they are), but they're totally out of place on this list.

There should be a corresponding thrash list, and they should be on that.

You don't consider Heartwork influential to other bands? Okay, I have no use for any of your opinions now.

Heartwork is not essential Death Metal. Especially when it's not even close to the best Carcass album. Please quote where I said it didn't influence any bands.

Heartwork, IMO, influenced bands because that and Slaughter Of The Soul are the best/biggest/first melodeath albums.

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
I might get bashed for this but how are most of these albums at all essential.
maybe if your talking about essential death metal albums this list would make more sense. I highlighted the ones that I actually think are essentials.

It is a DM list, and if you want to know how they're essential...listen to them.
