Thanks for the recommendation, it's a very good album, the melody reminds me alot of Bolt Thrower, but they sound heavier, I might start listening to more from Asphyx.

Thanks, I need to add Symbolic it's my favourite Death album, I just wasn't sure if it was more thrash than death, and Dissection is a band I have always wanted to listen too.

Yeah, Symbolic is a mix of thrash, death, and progressive elements. I always like albums that mix genres together. For example, Storm of the Light's Bane blends death and black metal, while At the Heart of Winter blends black and thrash metal.
(By the way, I see in your Profile that you're a Tolkien fan too - Nice)

I agree the vocals are not a strong point for them, but the music has such great Atmosphere. I've tried to find Tolkein related bands with similar style, but none really come close to being as good.
