Aborted - Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done



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
The Saw and the Carnage Done
Sanguine Verses (of Extirpation)

Misery Index - Heirs to Thievery



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
Heirs to Thievery - 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!
You Lose
fuck yeah! My favorite song off of the album is Day Of The Dead.

Fuck yeah! My favorite Aborted album as well. The more I listen to it, the more I appreciate it.

Goremageddon kinda makes me sad, because I know they will never make another album of that caliber ever again. Global Flatline was good, but it still doesn't even come close to the mixture of brutality and catchyness they achieved on Goremageddon.

Cynic - Focus



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
I'm But a Wave To...
Uroboric Forms

Immolation - Close to a World Below



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
Father, You're Not a Father
Close to a World Below

Cryptopsy - None So Vile



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 - 1:52 is a perfect example of an awesome breakdown.
Graves of the Fathers
Benedictine Convulsions

Wintersun - Wintersun



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.

Highlights:
Winter Madness
Sleeping Stars
Death and the Healing
