12. Cryptopsy - Blasphemy Made Flesh (Savage Death Metal)
13. Nile - Annihilation Of The Wicked (Death Metal)
14. Be'Lakor - Stone's Reach (Melodic Death Metal that actually doesn't sound average in every way. Well, to me, anyway.)

20. Summoning - Stronghold (Epic)
21. Verdunkeln - Einblick In Den Qualenfall (Atmospheric/Psychedelic Black Metal at its best)
22. Carpe Noctem - In Terra Profugus (Really dark and fun Black Metal)
23. Azarath - Blasphemers' Maledictions (Ferocious Satan-Woshipping Blackened Death)
24. Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery (Death Metal. Don't know why, but this speaks to me more than Nightmares Made Flesh.)
25. Death - Individual Thought Patterns (Progressive Death Metal with awesome riffs and solos - just edges out Spiritual Healing.)
26. Hour Of Penance - The Vile Conception (Angry Death Metal)
27. Rhapsody Of Fire - Power Of The Dragonflame (Power Metal. Guilty Pleasure.)
28. Decapitated - Winds Of Creation (Death Metal. Most stereotypical of their works, but also perfect slab of death.)
29. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Oracles (Death Metal. Basically Hour Of Penance with piano.)
30. Necrophagist - Onset Of Putrefaction (Technical Death Metal. Can't get over the melodic solos.)
31. Septicflesh - Sumerian Daemons (Death Metal. Septic Flesh minus trying too hard to be cinematic.)
32. Negura Bunget - Om (Atmospheric Folk/Black. Everyone has to give this at least one listen.)
33. Inquisition - Into The Infernal Regions Of The Ancient Cult (Really catchy and really unique Black Metal)
34. Obscura - Retribution (Death Metal. Love this album although many find their latest to be more interesting)
35. Abysmal Dawn - leveling The Plane Of Existence (Death Metal. Prepare to be In Service Of Time.)
36. Darkthrone - Soulside Journey (Old School Death Metal)
37. Katatonia - Brave Murder Day (Progressive Death Metal with some random 80s influences that work. Also Akerfeldt on vocals.)
38. Barren Earth - Curse Of The Red River (Progressive Death Metal that is more interesting than Amorphis)
39. Scent Of Death - Of Martyrs Agony And Hate (Death Metal. Just started putting this through its listens, so I'm not sure why I like it so much yet, but it's damn good.)
40. Daylight Dies - Dismantling Devotion (Melodic Doom Metal. Some great riffs and song structures)
41. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors (Progressive. Majestic.)
42. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius (dirty, dark Death Metal)
43. Immolation - Close To A World Below (Death Metal. Blasphemy at its finest.)
44. Swallow The Sun - The Morning Never Came (Melodic Death/Doom)
45. Ævangelist - De Masticatione Mortuorum In Tumulis (Death Metal. Like watching 2001 Space Odyssey with your ears.)
46. Watain - Lawless Darkness (Black Metal. I just really love Waters Of Ain.)
47. Blut Aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God (Black Metal. One of the most oppressive, abrasive atmospheric soundscapes ever made.)
48. Aeternam - Disciples Of The Unseen (Melodic Black Metal that pulls of the Egyptian sound quite well. Vocalist does not pull off the Egyptian look though.)
49. Deeds Of Flesh - Reduced To Ashes (Pretty standard but well done Brutal Death Metal)
50. Defeated Sanity - Psalms Of The Moribund (Just about the most brutal thing ever without trying too hard like every other "brutal" slam band. Also quite technical.)
51. Dying Fetus - Destroy The Opposition (Death Metal with lots of headbanging moments.)
52. Aeon - Bleeding The False (Brutal Death Metal with some pretty surprisingly awesome riffs.)
53. God Dethroned - Passiondale (Death Metal. WW1 history is cool, death metal is also cool.)
54. The Monolith Deathcult - Trivmvirate (Death Metal with some Synth extras and good lyrics.)
55. Putrid Pile - Blood Fetish (Groovy as fuck Brutal Death Metal)
56. Immortal - At The Heart Of Winter (Black Metal. Fun Listen)
57. Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus (Blackened Death Metal. As Above So Below is an all time fav.)
58. Deicide - Legion (Death Metal. The Last Deicide Album that could be mistaken for intelligent music, but who needs that anyway)
59. Vektor - Black Future (Thrash Metal. Very refreshing and somewhat creative)
60. Melechesh - Emissaries (Melodic Blackened Death Metal with the best Mesopotamian sound)
61. Hypocrisy - Virus (Melodic Death Metal. Pretty average in every way, but it is very entertaining.)
62. Drudkh - Autumn Aurora (Atmospheric Black Metal. Amazing woodsy atmosphere and addicting rolling drums)
63. Dissection - Storm Of The Lights Bane (Melodic Black Metal. Pretty ahead of its time since there are so many copycat bands that haven't done better)
64. The Faceless - Planetary Duality (Technical Death Metal. Spacey vibe)
65. Decrepit Birth - Diminishing Between Worlds (Technical Death Metal with some really good riffs for once.)
66. The Meads Of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew (Maybe Black Metal Maybe Death Metal Maybe Neither. Some mind-blowing creativity here. Transcends music.)
67. Autopsy - Mental Funeral (Old School Brutality with some Doom)
68. Xanthrochroid - Blessed He With Boils (Melodic Black with some synth and story)
69. Nocturnus - The Key (Morbid Angel-esque Death Metal, but I like it better than Morbid Angel for some reason)
70. Beherit - Drawing Down The Moon (Black Metal. Sounds Like Inquisition if Inquisition were much scarier, less flashy, and the vocalist wasn't so intrusive)
71. Wolves In The Throne Room - Celestial Lineage (Atmospheric Black. Best of the US Hipster Black Metal albums.)
72. Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas (Black Metal. Defines the sound for Black Metal in the last 20 years.)
73. Carach Angren - Lammendam (Classical Inthused Black Metal. Ghost Stories were never so much fun.)
74. Carcass - Symphonies Of Sickness (Gore Metal. If only Reek Of Putrefaction didn't sound like shit. Well, this might be better anyway.)
75. Impaled - Mondo Medicale (Gore Metal in the vein of Exhumed)
76. Devin Townsend Project - Deconstruction (Progressive Metal. Devin Townsend is involved so there is too much to explain.)
77. Windir - 1184 (Melodic Black Metal.)
78. Gorguts - Obscura (Avant-garde Death Metal. I wasn't a huge fan of this album until I saw it live. Then I was.)
79. Ouroboros - Glorification Of A Myth (Thrash/Death)
80. Kronos - The Hellenic Terror (Brutal Death Metal about gore, battles, and Greek mythology. Awesome.)
81. Whispered - Thousand Swords (Melodic Death Metal. Asian-influenced and a really good time.)
82. Beyond Creation - The Aura (more Technical Death Metal done well with lots of bass guitar.)
83. Severe Torture - Fall Of The Despised (Brutal Death Metal)
84. Belphegor - Lucifer Incestus (Melodic Black Metal. I can't tell if Belphegor take themselves too seriously, or not seriously enough, but they are fun to listen to.)
85. Persuader - Evolution Purgatory (Progressive Thrash/Power. Some amazing vocal work, as well as some seriously catchy songs)
86. Cloak Of Altering - Ancient Paths Through Timeless Voids (Electronic Black Metal. The War Has Finally Found Us is one of the most addicting songs of all time.)
87. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes (Melodic Death Metal)
88. Krisiun - Southern Storm (Death Metal. Over 50 minutes of getting your face raped by people from Brazil)
89. A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays (Atmospheric Black Metal.)
90. Antediluvian - λόγος (Atmospheric Death Metal. This album is so brutal and so dirty that it becomes addicting.)
91. Vital Remains - Dechristianize (Melodic Deicide.)
92. Dark Funeral - Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus (Black Metal. Keep coming back to this album even though there are better out there. Overrated by me.)
93. Misery Index - Heirs To Theivery (Grindcore for people that don't listen to grindcore. Death Metal.)
94. Midnight Odyssey - Funerals From The Astral Sphere (Atmospheric Black Metal. This album makes me want to go outside at night.)
95. Devourment - Molesting The Decapitated (Classic Brutal Death/Goregrind)
96. Wintersun - Wintersun (Melodic Death Metal. Really fun, especially live.)
97. Anata - The Conductors Departure (Death Metal. One of the first death metal albums I've ever heard, and not a bad start either.)
98. Dark Empire - Humanity Dethroned (More Extreme Persuader with the same vocalist, but not quite as catchy)
99. Equilibrium - Sagas (Melodic Death/Folk. Great fun and Mana is absurd in every way.)
100. The Abscence - From Your Grave (Melodic Death Metal. Really awesome riffage, too bad the band sucks now.)

Yeah, I'm not really sure what definitive genre Meads can be classified as. They definitely have their own sound though, that is for sure.

I see no problem with experimental black.

Well the experimental part is where all the other genres come into play, but yeah that is the best way to describe it. The more I think about it the more I also think that Meads has nothing to do with death metal though.
