Well Im building up my Techinical Death Metal collection and im wondering what bands and albums should be needed in this collection, and thought that a thread needs to be made for recommendations on this. Im a fan of Psycroptic, Suffocation, and Cryptopsy.

Any list albums that should be inclued in the collection, bands and/or albums.

EDIT: Now we've got a lot of Tech DM bands added, make sure you go through and check if the band has been added or not, saves a bunch of repeats. Also lets get a little discussion about some of the bands.

I wonder why when it comes to technical death no one mentions Nile... though I'm pretty sure they are the best technical band I've ever heard. maybe there are some bands that are more technical, but no one has that epic sound that Nile has.

Well if you read the previous posts, there are some users who mentioned Nile here before.

And yes Nile uses some crazy techniques, but they are not a %100 technical death metal band, if you ask me.


Nile are technical/BRUTAL death metal.



.......I don't know if anybody mentioned Decrepit Birth

Anomalous - Ohmnivalent (2011)



One of the more inspired and complex albums of tech-death I've ever heard.

It isn't the worst tech-death I've heard but it's definitely nowhere near the best. Kind of screamed "average" throughout the album.

Not usually a fan of tech death as most of it is self-absorbed or sterile but somehow that album is SO self-absorbed it actually works, like a pure showcase of dense technicality. I listened to it much like I would a noise record, more for texture than for instrumentation; I remembered nothing of the structuring, just blasts of sound separated by some Meshuggary clean soloing. I liked it at any rate, I think it has a lot more personality than the Obscuras and the Beyond Creations of 2011.

Definitely check out GIGAN. They are a spacey, psychedelic, technical death metal band from the USA...very trippy shit.

Check out Demisery, they're not exactly technical death metal but they are "technically inclined" at any rate and definitely very noteworthy for it. The solos are fucking amazing. If anyone is familiar with the recent up and comer in the technical metal world Keith Merrow, this is his death metal project he's doing with a friend of his to pay homage to the death metal bands who inspired their playing styles early on.

Well we've discussed a lot (and not only in this thread) if bands like Necrophagist and Brain Drill are overdoing it a little and sacrificing every last bit of musicality for their technicality...well, it'll be pointless to start that all over again so let's just forget about it. Decapitated are epic and i would like to add Psycroptic, Spawn of Possession and Monumental Torment here too (i don't remember if they have been mentioned before, and to be honest with you guys i'm too lazy to check it right now) xD

exclude the impossible and what's left is the truth.

I 2nd Monumental Torment, their album 'Element Of Chaos' (2011) is excellent.

I still think Archspire is the best and most underrated of all the recent tech death upstarts...
