A Bizarre List Of Top 20 Death Metal Albums

I'll be the first to admit I haven't got a clue about Death Metal. A lot of the traditional DM faves ala Death or Obituary have never appealed to me, let alone the uber technical side of the genre.

So here's a list of my top 20 Death Metal albums in alphabetical order. I have avoided blatantly Melodic Death Metal stuff ala Dark Tranquillity but have included the more heavier ones ala Carcass and Edge of Sanity.

1. Aborted - The Archaic Abattoir
2. Atheist - Piece Of Time
3. Bolt Thrower - Realm Of Chaos
4. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal
5. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious

After A Year Of Metal: The Albums With The Biggest Impact

It's nearly been a year since I've started listening to metal. I've listened to many albums since then, but it took me some time to get used to some genres, band ideologies and listening to full albums. This is a list of albums that had a big impact on the way I perceive metal. It is NOT a favorite album list as I don't still frequently listen to some of the listed albums anymore. Ordered by impact level.

1. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
2. Suffocation - Pierced From Within
3. Immortal - At The Heart Of Winter
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Edge Of Sanity - Crimson

Bands listed alphabetically, One album per band (With the exception of Carcass and Napalm Death who appear in the Grind and Death Metal sections). Some bands may not be pure old school (Death / Thrash, Doom Death / Death Doom and early Brutal / Technical Death Included) I have also Included some of the more extreme Thrash releases that pre-dated the genre but undoubtedly help pave the way for things to come, I included these as I wish to give a general summary of the way Death Metal began and evolved throughout the 80's and 90's.

1. Old School Death Metal (Late 80's - 90's)
2. Abhorrence - Abhorrence [EP]
3. Acrostichon - Engraved in Black
4. Adramelech - Psychostasia

Playing To My Strengths: Facing Death And Its Technicalities

What to expect; incredibly challenging and technically-proficient death metal, or death metal noted for stifling and dense atmospheric prevalence, or both, that may or may not be traversable in one go. Listener's discretion is advised.

Many albums featured here may borrow elements from other genres (prog, thrash, melodeath, grindcore, post, etc.), but the dominant stench of complexity-laden death metal is forever present, and so deserve to be mentioned here.

1. 7th Nemesis - Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow
2. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
3. Ævangelist - De Masticatione Mortuorum In Tumulis
4. A Loathing Requiem - Psalms Of Misanthropy
5. A Million Dead Birds Laughing - Xen
