My Journey Into Death Metal - 15 Albums That Brought Me Into The Genre

I've been a fan of metal music for a little over five years now. For most of that, I've just not liked death metal. It simply failed to hook me, and I simply preferred black, doom, etc…

Over time, though, I heard a few albums that slowly made me grow more interested in the genre, and ultimately led to me growing a curiosity, then an appreciation, for the style. Anyways, this is the sequence of albums that got me hooked on exploring death metal, and what I would play for anyone I was trying to introduce the style to.

1. Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side
2. Hypocrisy - Abducted
3. Opeth - Still Life
4. Novembers Doom - The Pale Haunt Departure
5. Septicflesh - Communion
