The Faceless - Planetary Duality

Genre: Technical Death Metal

One of the first death metal albums I ever heard. I used to be the biggest fanboy for this band like 3 years ago. It was also sick seeing this album being played in it's entirety 3 years ago as well! Since then I've discovered a ton of other death metal bands (as you can see) and I kinda distanced my way apart from this album... but listening to it again is very nostalgic. Michael Keene shreds on this album, his solos are very clean and the riffs are heavy. The drums are also intense on here, Lyle Cooper (I think that's his name?) is a VERY talented drummer, especially for tech death. I personally think it's a step up from Akeldama, both as an album and genre change. Even though this album is just short of half an hour, it's still worth a listen for some crazy paranormal-ridden madness.

Highlights:
Prison Born
Xenochrist
Legion of the Serpent
Great choice! This is one of my few favorite technical death albums that I love. I also remember when this was your favorite band on last.fm back than.

Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side



Genre: Melodic Death Metal

I'm not a big fan of melodeath at all, but Amon Amarth happens to be one of the few bands in the genre that I do like. All their releases are great and have consistency, but when they released this one... man. They definitely outdid themselves with this album because it is amazing. The riffs and melodies are way more defined and all the songs are incredibly catchy in their own way. Every song is either fast, brutal, or melodic mid paced. Whichever it may be, they are all awesome in their own way. This album also has my favorite lyrics they've ever written. Lots of violence! This is definitely the album to start with to get into Amon Amarth.

Highlights:
Valhall Awaits Me
Asator
Gods of War Arise

Thanks very much for listing Devourment. I'd heard of them but never checked them out. I'm a big fan of slam death metal, as long as it doesn't venture into deathcore.

dISEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence Into the Peripheral



Genre: Death/Doom, Funeral Doom Metal

The one funeral doom metal on here that has enough death metal elements to be considered a death metal album. Mixing up the slow passages and atmospheres of funeral doom with the vocals, intense riffs and drumming from death metal, you get dISEMBOWELMENT. This album is crazy as hell and very long, but it is well worth a listen. This was done in 1993... amazing. There was nothing like it at it's time.

Highlights:
The Tree of Life and Death
Your Prophetic Throne of Ivory
The Spirits of the Tall Hills

Mad props. Didn't expect this one to be on here.

Yeah I discovered them through similar artists from another band that is going to be on here WAY later in the list, very good stuff.

Demilich - Nespithe



Genre: Technical Death Metal

Demilich... another very interesting band. You never know what to expect from these guys. Having released one of the most technical and bizarre albums in the history of death metal, they have taken metal in general to new extremes. You cannot predict anything that is going to happen in this album. The songs usually start out with an awesome riff, and rather than continuing the riff, they change it to another riff! It's hard to explain but you have to listen for yourself. The one thing that could draw people away from this album are the vocals (mainly sounds like burping) but for me it wasn't a problem. 90's tech death fans, this album is for you!

Highlights:
When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water
The Echo (Replacement)
And You'll Remain... (in Pieces in Nothingness)

At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul



Genre: Melodic Death Metal

Another one of the very few melodic death metal albums on this list. I love this album not just because it's melodeath done right (by right I mean not boring) but also because it is actually DEATH metal. Most Gothenburg melodeath bands keep forgetting the "death" in death metal. Not At The Gates. Although it's well known, this album was very innovative and inspired many bands throughout the years, some good and some bad. This album is a landmark in the history of metal as a whole.

Highlights:
Slaughter of the Soul
Unto Others
Nausea

Behemoth - Evangelion



Genre: Black/Death Metal

There are a lot of later Behemoth releases that are awesome in their own way, but their last album definitely sticks out to me the most. Everything is a lot more polished on this album, especially the production. This album is very violent, Nergal sounds especially pissed off for whatever reason on here. But yeah, my favorite Behemoth release as of now. Can't wait to see them again!

Highlights:
Daimonos
He Who Brings Pestilence
Defiling Morality Ov Black God
